Metro Wiki

About me

Cześć! Hello! Здравствуй!

I'm an admin of the Metro Wiki. I've been contributing since late 2012, but became an administrator in early December of 2015 and later became its main admin. We do our best to maintain this wikia as the best English-language source of information for the whole Metro 2033 franchise, both the books and the games.

My native tongue is Polish, but I am also fluent in English, semi-fluent in Russian, and know a tiny bit of Finnish. Apart from adding general content and doing maintenance work, most of my editing interests on the Metro Wiki involve making Russian/Polish information available to English speakers (for example).

If you're wondering, my username "Karmazynowy Wilk" is pronounced "Karmazinoviy Vilk" (roll the R) - it's Polish for "Crimson Wolf". It is a name I used to go by in some other online communities, though I can't remember why I picked it or if it's a reference to anything in particular. It's a bit of a mouthful, especially for those not fluent in Slavic languages, so feel free to call me Bamul instead.

Many mods and admins of the Metro Wiki have come and gone since its inception in 2010. Life moves on. I seem to be one of the very few still left, though even I am now prone to months-long periods of inactivity. It can be frustrating when you put your heart into a project only to have it vandalised or wrecked by poorly-made edits, so please respect the work of those who came before you.

On a side-note, for anyone who is a fan of Eastern European post-apocalyptic stuff, I highly recommend THIS FILM. If you liked Metro 2033 and are a fan of Tarkovsky's work, then this forgotten classic of Polish cinema will probably be to your liking as well.
