Heyyy. I'm banana439monkey. I'm a male Brit Monkey who loves food, computers, games, space, social media and hardware. I'm a wiki editor and have been since 2015. My favourite colour is red. Mostly, I programme in Node.JS, but during school I programme in Python. However, I know HTML. I used to be active in the Requests and Bugs and Glitches. I play songs I have an obsession with on look. MediaWiki, the software this wiki runs is also an enjoyment. It's fun and is flexible. I'm a random person who comes up with random things. I'm stupid. I love Discord. Anyway, I'm pretty insane and I'm insane enough to say I'm insane enough to admit that. I also like dark theme, and wherever I can, I switch to it. In my spare time, I enjoy working with materials (definitely wood), creating projects and being a sound/lighting technician.


Okay, you're probably wondering how I joined Scratch, right? No? Carry on then.

Anyway, for those who are interested, I joined Scratch through an after-school code club. I volunteered with this code club and came along. I didn't notice the registration letter said it was using Scratch until I came along. The academic year before, however, I was pondering about what this programme, installed on our computers, called Scratch was. I opened it and noticed you could draw. I then came to a conclusion that it was an art application, like Inkscape and immediately closed it. After about five minutes of this code club, I created my first account; banana349monkey. I didn't realise about the twenty-four character password limit and went a bit... ...well, cuckoo with the password. When I got home, I couldn't log in. And so, I made banana439monkey a week later. Then, I noticed the existence of the Scratch Team, through speakvisually. Good old chap. Anyway, it was some time before I had actually interacted with him. I then started to interact with more and more of the community. And then now. Well, now. Much more mature than the awful nine-year-old and still learning. How far have we been, friend?

Facts about me

  • Apple products are awful.
  • I take little interest in sports, but I do row.
  • I hosted Edible Wiki.
  • I have four computers; Two running Linux, one on Windows and one set up to pent boot into a choice of two copies of Windows 10, one copy of Windows 8.1, Linux Mint and Ubuntu MATE.
  • If I bump into you in real life and you identify yourself as a wiki contributor, chances are I'll talk to you for a pretty long time.
    • Referring to that, if you somehow turn up where I live, I'll also do that, though chances are I'd probably also try and beat you in a game I have.
  • I exist.
  • I'm random.
  • I'm found like everywhere.
  • I have an old non-functioning Nokia 3310.
  • I built my first computer at eleven.
  • I'm a gargantuan tech enthusiast
  • My exploration involves creating a whack ton of projects.
  • My brain is more brick than brain.
  • I'm bored.
  • If you don't know my gender, which is pretty uncommon, I'm male.
  • La Même French people? Anyone?
  • My handwriting is, as like Jacob's, pretty bad.
  • I'm lazy.
  • I believe in repair and repurposing. If something has no use to you, give it or sell it. If something's broken, repair it. If something's broken beyond repair (things like laptops, say), tear it down or give it to an enthusiast to tear down. It's what makes today's and tomorrow's IT technicians.
