  • I am XY

I'm Neil, a 29 year old residing in the United Kingdom, though I am a native of Portugal. I live a half of my year in the U.K., and the other half in Goa, India, which is my second home.

On the professional front, I have a practice as a lawyer. Currently I work as a part-time aide to a prominent civil lawyer, and am an advocate in family law. Academically, I have a B.A. (English) & LLB. At present, I am studying for a Bachelor's in Zoology via correspondence course.

My hobby is traversing through the myriad mysteries of the English language, and some of my friends consider me to be a 'grammarian'; I'm literally their thesaurus on the go. I work as an English teacher in schools (on contractual basis) while in India (approximately 5 months in a year) and am qualified to teach the same.

Aside from that, I personally consider myself to be blessed with the proverbial 'green thumb', and have a taste for gardening. I generally grow my own vegetables and even used to manage a little private nursery. It is now being run by my fiancee.

Another thing, I'm obsessed with genealogy. I'm a die-hard fan of anything ancient, like old records, photographs, documents etc. I work as a freelancer genealogist when I'm not dealing with cases and courts. It's like my second, part-time job. I have established people's roots, and in many cases people who come to me are in for a (pleasant) surprise as they discover and establish unlikely connections with other, seemingly unrelated people.

That's all regarding my personal life. Move on to the next section to learn more about me!

In the not-so-distant past, I used to play on all 14 worlds of the EN server and was in AF on 09 of them. An experience which left a bad taste in my mouth, coupled with some crucial examinations, made me leave the game, but after some time, I decided to return. However, the strain and pressure I had to face managing the #1 guild on the server me reluctant to go back to my AF worlds. They were just into the threshold of the AF (soon after Part 1 had been released).

I decided not to return to them and instead concentrated on one world which was in the LMA. Currently, its in the Modern Era, and I intend for it to remain so, as I like the style and designs of the Era.

At the moment, I do not play the game. This might make some people think "Then what the heck is he doing here!??". It is important to remember that I am merely in an advisory role on this wiki as of now. I have resigned and then returned only because this wiki crucially lacks staffing. When any event or new content comes out, I quickly log in to the game, survey the changes and create the wiki pages. This ensures a win-win situation for me as I am now able to fulfill my duties on the wiki without exerting the strain of playing the game.

Wiki This user is an ADMINISTRATOR on Forge of Empires Wiki.

I have been a noted administrator on several wikis including this one. My administrative experience as of May 2019 is approx. 4 years 8 months or 1700 days. Before my stints as admin, I have been a dedicated contributor on many wikis and have enriched their repositories with my knowledge of the topic (bragging rights ;P)

Achievements

Will be listed once I make a comprehensive list of them ;)

Created Pages

I don't mean to boast, but don't you, the reader, think that if I go to list ALL the pages I created the list might go on for a long, long, long time?

Sandboxes

What are sandboxes? You may ask, right? Well, sandboxes are drafts which I create before creating any final page which pertains to an important matter, like events, ages etc. This makes it easier for me to simply copy and paste the content when its required on a short notice and helps in the rectification of errors. Anybody can create them, but you should keep in mind that Sandboxes are a user's personal property, and editing or modifying them without the user's prior permission is considered to be in bad taste and is looked down as indecent wikiquette.

(I frankly do not remember why Sandbox 2 does not exist)

I have been a noted administrator on many Wikis (which I have chosen not to list here) for having a serious take on vandalism. Although our wiki is peaceful and stable now, there was a time when it was not so. I am here to guide and help you all. As I mentioned earlier, if you have any doubts, concerns or queries you all may leave a message on my Message Wall.

There are several kinds of vandals which I have come across during my time as an admin. There are some who are obnoxious and rude to fellow commenters/editors. Then there are some who post inflammatory messages on other's message walls. Other kinds of vandals bring some other unrelated kind of wiki's dispute in ours and start a 'war' of sorts over here. Then there are some who remove content from pages without reasons and those who desecrate pages and replace correct information with incorrect content. Some vandals post obscene links on pages and in comments etc. Regardless of the type, I will review the gravity of each situation before taking a decision. My decisions may include a warning message, or a temporary block from the wiki(duration depends on situation) or a full-on permanent ban. Of course, I will be just and fair in taking a decision.

Occasionally, I take breaks or leave from the wiki. I do this after a while of lot of taxing work on the wiki to plug-out and refresh my self. Sometimes, my work doesn't permit me to spend much time on the wiki, but I do make up for such erratic days by being wholly active on the days when I am here.
