From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

I'm Thebiguglyalien (he/him), but I also answer to TBUA, BUA, and Alien. I'm a lifelong resident of Arizona, and I have a bachelor's degree in political science. I created my account in 2015, my first edit was in 2017, and I became a regular contributor in February 2022.

Most of my contributions involve content writing, often overhauling unloved articles to get them to good article status. I also engage in review work from time to time. You might see me around Women in Green, Good Article Nominations, or any one of the brief interests I pursue before moving on to something else.

I edit in several areas, but my main focuses are history and political science. I also edit extensively about Botswana, because I believe systemic bias is best fought with deep coverage rather than wide but shallow coverage. If you are reading this, I challenge you to pick an underrepresented country and write everything you can about it.

Any allegations that I'm an alien from Mars bent on intergalactic conquest are entirely baseless and unfounded.
