Hey o/, its 3primetime3, preferred to be called Primetime. You probably already knew that by clicking on my username. I'd like to thank you very much for visiting the Candy Crush Saga Wiki today and for coming to my user page. It's truly an honor and privilege for me to have someone like you clicking on my name. Perhaps we could get to know each other and chat sometime. I'm proud to say that my Facebook, Discord, Skype, email and Nintendo accounts are open to my friends that I meet online. Maybe we could add each other.
Anyways, you've probably found me because you saw me flooding recent wiki activity with my edits. Sorry, you probably want to see someone else's name. It's just because I'm a serious mainspace editor here. My main goal is to strive for consistency, though it's easier said than done on an active, constantly growing 8,000-page wiki. When I'm not sleeping, playing music, or at school, I'll probably be fixing up formatting errors and letting my pet peeves take over. Looking back on the few years I've been active here, I believe that one of my biggest regrets is staying away from community decisions. I now rarely spend time for blogs, forums, templates, and such due to egregious errors I've committed in the past. However, even though I'm always hesitant to post, I'm never afraid to speak my mind if I need to or lend a helping hand for those who need it. So feel free to drop me a message here if you need anything. I don't respond on my wall much, but I'll definitely take your post into consideration or respond to you via Community Central if necessary.
Name's Austin, and I'm going to be starting my junior year at UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) as I'm typing this. I have a burning passion for music, playing the piano and violin professionally along with the viola and cello. When I grow up, I aspire to become a concert pianist, performing in tourist locations around the world. More on that if we get to know each other more - maybe you'll hear my playing sometime. One other thing is my love for running in Cross-Country, mainly because I'm not good at it. But that's where my quote above comes from. Putting in that extra effort got me second place in the league finals, barely qualifying me for the city prelims. If you don't know me yet, let me tell you that I'm pretty rebellious, always doing things that people say that I can't do and playing Devil's advocate on most Wiki decisions. For example, my physician told me not to run because I have very flat feet and can easily lose my balance. Yeah, I always strive to prove people wrong. Another thing, I also like teaching math, especially tutoring those that need help in Calculus AB. Even though my parents told me not to teach because of my communication and English issues, I soon became voted as the best student teacher at my school after raising fails to C's and B's. But it doesn't stop there. I hope to spread a positive atmosphere to everyone else in the community and to continue giving what I have received.
Oh yeah, last thing about me. I'm always hungry and sleepy, so you'll see me eating or sleeping 24/7. Luckily, I never gain weight, so it's all good. :)
A few of my close friends a few years ago. Do you still remember me?
My friends here have continued changing over the years. I wouldn't have been able to make it to where I am without everyone's support. You guys have taught me respect, love, assertiveness, honesty, compatibility, neutrality, wisdom, teamwork, companionship, hopefulness, determination, motivation, timeliness, and so much more! I'd like to point four users who have been my biggest influences during my years here.
♥PC04: I always say to myself that in the long term, the true friends are the ones who withstand the test of time. Despite the ups and downs that we've faced together, you've come to show me that I can consistently count on you no matter what. That makes you the man of the people. Therefore, of all the active users around this wiki, I have the utmost respect for you sir. I cannot wait for the awesome editing that we're about to undertake and for the many long years ahead! :)
♥Leo: Oh man, the things that you have done for me have really transcended past everyone else on Wikia ever since I lost myself in 2017. I always wonder where I would be without having you in my life. You've shown me how to live happily again through our voice discussions on Discord, and you've really helped restore my hopes. Although sometimes I fall down, you showed me how to get up each time without fail. Thank you for sticking with me even when it wasn't easy, for being there when I was strong on the outside but weak in the inside. No words describe my respect and admiration I have for you. Truly anyone is lucky to have a buddy like you.
♥Rose: In all of my years here, I've never met someone who was as understanding as you. From the heart touching PMs and inside jokes to the editing competitions every once in a while, you're the one I look for to have a good time, or if I need a shoulder to lean on. They have meant the world for me throughout my tough times. Even though you may not remember, I'll always remember the moment when you told me that "a life is a life, so we should always live it as best as we can." Since 2014 man, I feel like I've known you for such a long time, and I can't imagine how my Wikia experiences would be if we've never crossed paths. Even though you live halfway across the world from me, our friendship is much closer :).
♥Kody: Albeit you retired and are unfortunately not coming back, you've been the biggest influence throughout my times on the Geometry Dash Wiki. To have someone who is not only AMAZINGLY music-oriented but also friendly and relateable makes chat enlivening for me. Everyday, I joined chat hoping to see you around, and time passes by so quickly whenever we have one of dem PMs or Skype calls. Those are moments I'd never forget. Every week, I understand your permanent retirement, but I log onto chat (a.k.a. the tragic downfall of the GD community) and hope for your return.
♥Stefan B: From unreleased versions to Candy Crush APKs, you've helped and encouraged me multitudes as an editor. It’s always such a pleasure to chat with you on Discord! :)
Those were the words that I said the third time I visited the Candy Crush Saga Wiki. I was hesitant to create an account, thinking that my mom or dad would catch me downloading a virus from a website covered in advertisements. But after a day or two, I still thought I should quit. It wasn't a typical website that I usually logged on to, and I would get banned from using the internet if my mom or dad found out. Anyhow, I started to make small edits, just like I did on Wikipedia, trying to add on to pages and creating some stubs here and there. I wasn't really making any impact on the wiki, just filling in some things that I felt like adding in.
The first actual user I met on the wiki was Wildoneshelper, the one who welcomed me here and the first one to treat me as part of the community. He showed me around the place and made me feel like I belonged. Because of him, it was the first time that I was 100% certain that I was going to keep my account. And soon, I would meet many new faces who were eager to contribute as much as I did. Many users kept joining the community. On chat and even editing side by side, I made more and more friends, and my list of users I could trust continued growing. The amount and support of friends I had here surpassed the ones I had in real life. Yeah, being nerdy and quiet in real life wasn't exactly the way to make friends. With many users, only some including Luvda, Liquoritz, Ryan, Joy, and Rolento, I started to lose interest in the Candy Crush game itself and began to contribute much more to the wiki. I realized how much more I loved editing a wiki about the game than actually play the game hehe. The wiki and game continued growing side by side, and brand new infoboxes with brilliant templates started to show up on pages (created by Maddie). Not to mention, the Dreamworld was just released, introducing new game ideas and elements. So much to do, but everyone's hard work brought the wiki's information up to speed. It obviously wasn't a 100% stable ride, we all know. Users left due to personal issues, but we persevere and remain strong, as the great users we are. Soon, with users like Rose, Flockky, Elsa, and DCG, Cjay, and Not real name, every page became formatted in just a year. The number of admins increased from 3 to 6 to 10+ with a whopping FOUR bureaucrats!! And there's only so much more to come in the future. I see potential in everyone here, eager to continue molding Candy Crush Saga Wiki's history :).
Today, sitting here, looking back, I'm so glad that this place has become my safe haven. I log on to this wiki to take a break from the stresses in life and my current emotional instability. Each day, this wiki has helped me grow stronger and mature faster in life. And this simple number on my profile page is not a milestone. It is a symbol - it represents the three-year journey that I've had so far with everyone here. And I'm only looking forward to miles I have ahead. Why will I continue on this wiki? It's because of YOU. Yes, YOU sitting there reading this. It's you, the ones around the world who have molded me into who I am today. Through how? Words of wisdom. And if you don't believe me, I've compiled a list of quotes that really spoke to me since Day 1 to show you the Candy Crush Saga Wiki I know.
"Why patience is important? Think about the game Dumb Ways to Die... If you don't have patience and want to be quick and go across the train tracks, you have a big chance in getting smashed by a train. Same here, if patience is practiced in both sides, I'm sure everything will not be smashing and fighting." ~Wildoneshelper
"Nobody is perfect, people will occasionally make mistakes, that itself is unavoidable. But as long as we learn from it, it would make us a better person. :)" ~Solstice
"No need to apologize. We both have the same goal of making the Wiki better." ~Happy Joy Joy
"I want everyone to chill out for a day. No rule breaking. I want everyone to be peaceful. Just for a day. And be nice...Thats all I really want." ~Emma
"As a queen, I TOTALLY forgive you, no matter what." ~Elsa
"You were the best, you really were. I felt so comfortable around you, knowing I am always accepted." ~Lee
"Respect is something that can only be earned through hard work and a good attitude. You do not need to be a bureaucrat, or even an admin, to gain the respect of the community, and similarly having admin or bureaucrat rights does not mean that people will automatically respect you. You need to earn others' respect, and I believe you can do that!" ~Imamadamadamadamad
"Please remember that it is the action, not the person that we should be condemning when things go wrong." ~Imamadmadmadmadmadmad (added 10/30/2016)
"A life is a life. Don't let them bother you." ~Rose
"There's no need for an umbrella... if we get wet, we can just dry off... after we freeze our butts getting home, dripping on the bus, and catch a nice cold from it. But carry one. You probably won't use it, but it could save a lot of grief if you need it." ~Cat (added 11/18/2016)
"It's actually a very healthy thing to do, when we are very upset, to take a little settling time to ourselves before re-engaging. It gives us more time to think more clearly, and the ensuing interactions are likely to be more positive and productive." ~Cat
"It is best to stay calm and move on with your life." ~Emma
"I'm thankful for having a loving family...I'm thankful for friends I have...I'm thankful for who and what I am...I'm thankful for you guys for joining Candy Crush Saga Wikia! Sometimes this still feels like a dream..." ~Lefty7788
"As part of the admin team, we should strive for the better -- help out the users, welcome more users, to improve the big fanbase of Candy Crush Saga." ~B.E.N.JOE
"As a chat moderator, our duties is to try our best to resolve conflicts, and not make the conflict even worse." ~LucasH181
"Patience and being worthiness are the keys to success." ~CJAY (added 11/13/2016)
"Remember, the key to success is failure because you can learn from your mistakes and not make them again. We aren't mad at you or anything, we just want to do what's best for the wiki as a whole and we want to help you correct your mistakes, not anger or confuse you." ~3light (added 10/31/2016)
"Don't be a perfect contributor, just do your best contributions you can :)" (~The Lucky Flockky)
"Remember that the wikia does not belongs to you, it belongs to everyone. Everyone should have the rights to edit." ~Lucas (added 10/31/2016)
"You have to do what makes you feel comfortable. Just remember there are a lot of people on this board who support & appreciate you, the ones who don't are just jealous & I promise you that's true!" ~Gigi
"I am proud of this wiki and all our hard work!" ~ChaoticCrush
Thank you all for the memories and experiences you brought here in this wiki and for me to learn new lessons and apply very beneficial advices." ~Flockky II
"With this wiki going, Candy Crush Saga will be more popular than ever!" ~Mulligan (added 07/12/2017)
"Take a deep breath; just smile." ~Flockky (added 11/13/2016)
I hope the compliation of quotes means as much to you as it did to me. I look up to you guys for being such sagacious and humble users. Thank you. You guys have really shone over the years. This tight camaraderie is one that no one finds in the real world anymore, and I'm glad we're able to form such strong bonds with each other, even when we are thousands of miles apart. I'm glad that this is my life: a bunch of people from all over the world getting online to create not a unique community, but an irreplaceable family.
And I close off my 100Kth edit with a cheesy quote from my very 1K-edit blog post, "I LOVE THIS WIKI!!!!" :D
During my first period of activity, I added a history page here that outlines major events that have occurred on this wiki. Everything will be added here: from new achievements, rage, good news, to bad news...etc. After a while, we've seen how the wiki has grown and prospered throughout the years - and I know that it will continue doing so! :D
Note: The dates here refer to the North American Pacific Standard Time (PST). Since this wiki uses UTC, there might be a few discrepancies with the dates.
