10,000 pages. I win.

StarFoxA can have his 100,000 wiki points. While he's been contributing large amounts of quality information for a group of games, I've taken a slightly different route, contributing smaller amounts of data for many more games. 
 
Today I decided to focus on WiiWare, uploading "box art" for the games and making sure the release info was up to snuff. Not particularly exciting, but I don't do it for the excitement. I just went about this task for awhile, and then I decided to load up my contributions page. Scrolling through the list of pages I've contributed to, I eventually reached the bottom of the page and was greeted by this: 

 
That's 10,001 individual pages that I have at least 1 wiki point on, which is more than any other user. It's even more than admin has, and admin gets a point every time a page is created with an image. admin was the user that came closest to beating me though.
 
I believe Brain Challenge was the page that brought the count to 10,000, but here are some of the other things that brought me to this point:
 
Genre - Block-Breaking
Breakout, Arkanoid, there's a ton of 'em. When the genre was added to the site the only game listed with the genre was Shatter. I spent a lot of time making sure other block-breaking games were accounted for, adding several to the database in the process. 
 
Platform - PC
110 points, no actual page edits. Apparently I got all those points by attaching the platform to games. In most cases they were newly created pages. 100 new pages for PC games? I'm actually surprised.
 
Concept - Steam
Games distributed through Steam are common contributions, whether I'm helping write the article, attaching the concept to games, or creating new pages for Steam games. Perhaps that's how I ended up creating so many new pages for PC games. 
 
Game - Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4
I've contributed various things to many aspects of this game. Most characters, Personas, locations, nearly every person listed in the credits. It's a great game and it deserves the attention.
 
Game - Scribblenauts
There's so much stuff in this game. I could keep adding characters, objects, and concepts for some time. Be sure to buy the game this September because it looks pretty sweet.

Theme - Adult
Giant Bomb has a lot of pages for adult games, many of them with impressive articles. I'm one of the sick people responsible for this. But I'm not alone, so don't be hatin' on me exclusively. ;)
 
Theme - Anime
A very popular theme, found in many Japanese games. Many of them were added by yours truly.
 
Companies no one likes - Particularly Data Design Interactive
I make sure Giant Bomb covers such games as Billy the Wizard and Rock 'n' Roll Adventures. Why? Why not!
 
People
These are the guys making those games for companies no one likes. Adding hundreds of person pages isn't fun, but it's something that needs to be done. Or not. I'm not sure if anyone really cares what games Bill Alexander was credited in, but I make sure people know anyway.
 
Releases
Every release added counts separately. I add a lot of releases, and it adds up. A lot of people forget about this feature, but it really is an important feature of any video game database. If we had more help in this area, it would be great. 
Maybe it could even help you beat me. :)

Yup, I didn't realise about the release section until a while after I started adding to the wiki stuff. Since then it's probably been the biggest way I've contributed to the site, mostly with UK release date. I totally agree that more people should add to it but instead we get a lot of unnecessary pages for 'Gold' or 'GotY' editions of games, which should actually be put as new releases in the original game pages.
 
Anyway congrats with your 10k page contributions.

Hey, completely off topic, but when did I get to be number 2? I gotta work on that soon...

Posted by KamasamaK

Nice job. I'm at a paltry 2,486 pages.

Posted by Lies

I'm somewhere near 2,000. Been hitting up the Halo pages recently, because most of what is there isn't very good :( The ODST page is fantastic however. That's my favorite one, followed closely by Cortana.
 
Congrats on 10,000. I'd imagine your or StarfoxA will get the next wiki mod position to open up- you're both insane editors.

Nice job. You deserve something for this....so here's an imaginary pat on the back. *pats*

Pretty much all the mods have a strange bias against my hometown... >.>
 
(A lot of spammers/plagiarizers/alt accounts came from my idiot friends)

Hell yeah. I am only at 300....but I still have over 8,000 points. I like to focus in on the few pages I do, youknowwhatimean?

And everyone else has a bias against you personally. :P
 
@asian_pride: What's with the sarcasm? Do you not appreciate my godliness?

@LordAndrew: admin is your arch rival. Basically its everyone including you against yourself.
Posted by StarFoxA
@LordAndrew: I know roushimsx does. All those collector's/GOTY/special/gold/silver/super awesome editions that I nominate for deletion. :P
Posted by dietmango
@LordAndrew: Godliness? Ha! You make me laugh, good sir. Jealousy? Maybe. I only have so measly wiki points compared to yours =P
Posted by Marino

Congrats on the 10k.  That's pretty crazy.  I'm only around 4000.

Bah. A mere 344 pages. Also, since LordAndrew has decided to shamelessly self-promote, I will do the same. 
Hey Guys! Take a look at the Hellfire page, which I pretty much single-handedly wrote the article for! And while your at it, why not stop by the Might and Magic VII page (which I also wrote the complete article for).

Posted by Dr_Feelgood38

It's awesome that you love this site so much that you would go through all of this trouble. I lost any chance of ever getting into the wiki business when I found out that I don't know NEARLY as much as anyone else about video games. But, hey, that's why you're here, right?

Posted by TMThomsen

Congratulations on the major achievement. Did anything unlock?
It's impossible to browse the wiki without stumbling upon somthing you've had your fingers on - great job!

@Marino: You will rue the day you passed me, Marino! CURSE YOU
Edited by Not_Rage

Congrats, admin is stealing everybody's points

Posted by Marino
@StarFoxA: Am I cursed for this time, the first time, or both? =)
 
Seriously though, it's not like I'm trying to pass you.  I'm just trying to complete some of the stuff I started.  Then I'll have to figure out something else to work on.
