Epicgenius is the name of this wikimedia user. He is from New York City, according to certain news media.[citation needed][lower-alpha 1]

About him

He likes mathematics (especially anything relating to very complex algebra, geometry, calculus, and mathematical proofs) and is very good at it. He also likes computer science, especially robots and anything having to do with artificial intelligence or biotechnology. Space travel and space exploration is also interesting to him, as is energy, the natural environment, and various types of cars, his favorite being the Tesla Model S. He really likes theme parks around the world, and his favorites are Disney parks and Universal Studios parks.

So it may surprise the reader that he actually edits English Wikipedia articles about public transportation, other infrastructure, and architecture. (He also sometimes edits theme park articles and other interesting topics that are either in the news or discovered by happenstance.)

These are among the other things he does on English Wikipedia at least:

  • Copy editing
  • Adding information
  • Anti-vandalism

He is also Commons user who only drops by sporadically. His main task is recategorizing pictures that are in the wrong categories and move categories to appropriate categories. He also uploads pictures from Flickr and helps to transfer files from enwiki if needed. A lot of pictures still need specific categorization.

The first part of his username is "epic" from the YouTube channel Epic Rap Battles of History. The second part is "genius" from lyrics website Genius.com. But English Wikipedia doesn't say that so,[citation needed]

And the reason he takes bad pictures is...

  • He owns an iPad and a smartphone but no actual high-quality cameras.
  • He doesn't have time to take good pictures. He has things to do, like school and work.

Footnotes

  1. Look through his ENGLISH WIKIPEDIA talk archives and you can find it. Probably...
  2. Excludes Van Cortlandt Park or New York City Subway.
  3. He means that he helped make it into a good article or featured article. This is not even a full list. Also, this includes collaborations with the following users for some of these: Kew Gardens 613, Tdorante10, Another Believer, and/or Dr. Blofeld.
  4. a b c Improved on existing status
  5. He watched it and felt inspired to write this article, so it was entirely unplanned
  6. But he does not like irking people with annoying fonts like this one.

He used to have a funny userpage. See here and here.
