Hi there! I'm Soulweaver (also previously known as UltimateSephiroth) and you just landed on my glorious new user page! I'm currently 22 years old and live in Finland. It's that odd country with about 5.3 million inhabitants there in the Northern Europe between Sweden and Russia. Anyway, I've been around when the Pokémon fever took off, I've seen the game overhaul in the third generation, I've seen the second generation getting the legendary status and the games' long waited remakes. I've practically lived most of my life with those interesting Pokémon creatures, and for my age, it isn't very usual to still be around. I graduated from the upper secondary school in Spring 2010 and began studying in Tampere University of Technology later that year.
I started in Bulbagarden as a regular Bulbapedia reader but started contributing in 2007 when I created an account to add a description for the Gen II only item Brick Piece. My real activity started in late 2008 with me adding Finnish episode names and uploading fixed size Gold sprites. Not very long after that, I got my first and, to date, last editing block to Bulbapedia from Maverick Nate for moving multiple pages without administrator approval. I learned my lesson for sure. :D
Not long after that, I also joined the Forums. I did that only to report that Opera Mobile could not access any of the Bulbagarden subsites, but after that, I started to post more there too. My peak activity of editing was between November 2008 and January 2009, netting me two spots in the monthly top contributors. At the time of writing, the oldest mainspace edit of mine that still is the most recent one of its page is in Pokémon Report (Pokémon Snap), dated to Jan 2009. For an unknown reason, I stopped editing for a while. I've still had bursts of activity, but such a long-time activity span hasn't been seen since.
While I started to return to Bulbagarden after my long inactivity, I started posting more in the forums. I also worked hard in the Bulbagarden Archives, and as such I was given the position of an administrator in October 2009. My activity has been a bit (too) fluctuating there as well, but I think I've done my job somewhat well. I've also been the head of the somewhat obscure Project SpriteDex since November 2009. I was around when the Trade Center was started up and I had one of the first trade shops there. Early in January 2010, just days after I won a copy of SoulSilver preorder in Bulbagarden Christmas contests in the forum skin contest, I was asked if I wanted to help with stuff. That's when I became a moderator in the Shop Subcenter. In March, I was promoted to moderate the whole Trade Center. Later on, I became the head of the that section as well as The Land of the Rising Sun for a short while. In late 2012, I stepped down from my positions for personal reasons.
Here are my accolades of my former work:
