My name is Lucas 'TOR' Garczewski. I am a proud member of Wikia's daring technical team and work to make your wikia experience ever more smooth and enjoyable™ every weekday (since June 1, 2007).

My work at Wikia

Currently, I take care of all those little things and not-so-little bugs that need fixing. I also try to help the Community Team by giving them tools that make their jobs easier, faster or both. Got a bug for me? Use our Contact form to report it.

As Wikia keeps growing, it's inevitable that every now and then something explodes, and I try to un-explode it as fast as possible, as part of our emergency response team.

I'm also responsible for importing new wikis and mergers of existing wikis with those of communities wishing to join the Wikia family.

Of course, in such a vibrant company as Wikia, you can never know for sure what you're going to be working on next. Which I find to be incredibly cool… Most of the times. :)

A little bit about me

I am 26 years old and live in Poznań, Poland.

When not working on fixing the next unexpected bug, I enjoy s-f & fantasy fiction, RPGs (the pen & paper variety) and cloak & dagger films, among other things.
