About meEdit

  • Pronouns: My pronouns are they/them, or just my name or handle in place of pronouns (e.g. "Goldenshimmer ate Goldenshimmer's food because Goldenshimmer was hungry").
  • Archiving: I believe strongly in the preservation of history.
  • Spirituality: I believe in archiving and the sanctity of knowledge. I am a Gnostic/Luciferian Christian, endeavoring to follow my Lord and savior Jesus of Nazareth, Christ, who I view as being one with Seth, Lucifer, Lilith, and Inanna. Many of my spiritual beliefs go against established consensus of truth or anything provable; I therefore seek to respect others' beliefs, and because diversity is one of many spices of life.
  • Gender identity: I am genderless.
  • Interests: I'm interested in:
  • Society, ethics, community, and government
  • Archiving and the preservation of history
  • Music (especially pop, EDM, romantic, various types of death metal, and rap), including listening, composing, and performing
  • Fencing, contra dancing, and downhill skiing
  • Free/libre/open-source software, technology, and culture
  • Writing systems

Previous accountEdit

Ecw.technoid.dweeb was the account I first used to edit Wikipedia. I then stopped using that account and renamed it to Crimsonmargarine, and used Goldenshimmer, for privacy reasons. Since then, I've stopped caring so strongly about my privacy.

When I dieEdit

My thoughts on Wikipedia:Deceased_Wikipedians/Guidelines and what I'd like to happen:
  • "On the talk page"
  • — Please don't add {{Nobots}}. I'm undecided about Category:Opted-out of message delivery.
  • Please don't remove "any unseemly disputes, warnings or deletion notices", unless you're a talk page archiver bot or moving them to the usual places. Those various messages are often useful for navigating Wiki history; no need to make things harder for people in the future exploring history.
  • "Editors who choose to do so may leave tasteful condolence notices on talk pages, by editing in the usual manner." — I generally like free speech, so feel free to leave messages if you like (as long as it's within Wikipedia's policies). (If you have something to say that you don't want to post or are not allowed to post on the wiki, you can email it to me (assuming my email's still working); hopefully it should reach my family and be archived for the future. In addition to the email address posted above, in case it's not working you can CC or additionally send to although I don't actively use it any more.)
  • "On the account" — Please do remove whatever rights you feel like. Regarding blocking: sounds reasonable, and/or just make it be made unable to be logged in to, to keep it as it is, regardless of whether it has been compromised yet.
  • "On WP:RIP and memorial pages" — That's your business, do as you like.
  • "Also" — If you delete my subscriptions to automated newsletters, I'd appreciate if you could list the changes to subscriptions made publicly on the talk page so it is known what I was subscribing to at the time.
  • Thanks!
