Despite the devilish-sounding name, Devil Boy is a star WikiAnswers contributor who has managed to rack up an impressive wiki-resume in his 6+ months with the community. My favorite part about him? The badge he hosts on his Bio Page for vandals to use so that he can identify them easier…
Aside from cheeky offerings to vandals, Devil Boy is a student and an avid gamer who also volunteers as a WikiGuide, WIT Member and Category Supervisor for basketball, gaming and Philippines-related categories.
How did you originally hear about WikiAnswers?
That’s a funny story. While searching I had the tendency to come across Yahoo! Answers… I was never fond of Yahoo, so I decided to look for another question & answer site. That’s when I found WikiAnswers.
Explain your username.
I knew you would ask that 🙂
When I was smaller, I loved to watch my dad play Day of Defeat, an awesome WW2 game. Back then, he went by the name Devil Boy. When I started to game, I went by the name Devil Boy to follow his steps. Ever since, I’ve used that name for all my usernames.
What motivates you to volunteer your time to the WikiAnswers community?
When I asked my first question on WikiAnswers, it wasn’t answered for a couple months… It was eventually answered with what I know now is vandalism. This made me think. I had to help WikiAnswers. I didn’t want anyone else to end up like I did.
What are your areas of expertise?
My brain is like a sponge… When I learn something, whether its important or not, I usually remember it for a long time. I learn most things from experience. If I had to choose one subject, it would be the game Counter-Strike Condition Zero. I have a clan for it, I play it, and I’ve been developing a server of it. Yes, you could call me an addict. I also excel in science. Besides that, I know facts for a wide range of subjects.
What is your favorite WikiAnswers feature?
What has been the funniest question you’ve seen or your funniest experience on WikiAnswers?
Someone asked How to perform a headshot in Counter-Strike? My friends and I got a great laugh out of that one.
I also had this daydream… I was that category supervisor WikiMan (orange guy). Armed with my bow, I was shooting down vandals.
