I'm SatanicSanta, or Santa. I was invited onto the FTB Wiki Team on 26 August, 2013, which is one week after I registered my account. I was put onto the team 15 September, 2013. I am a computer programmer, mainly in the Java and Ruby languages. I have been playing Minecraft since Alpha, and have been playing modded Minecraft since the release of BuildCraft, Summer of 2011.
You can read about my "career" as a mod author at SatanicSanta.
I also test (and help create a couple) modpacks with FTB Staff, and like to sometimes play on Retep998's GregTech server. Currently my favorite video game is Skyrim. My Minecraft username is SatanicSanta.
I am currently in college working on my diploma and studying computer science/computer information systems and sociology.
Role on the Wiki
I do a wide variety of things here on the wiki:
- Administrative and bureaucratic tasks, which are quite boring to describe so I'll spare you that
- Develop two of our main extensions, Tilesheets and OreDict, which are responsible for all game icons and crafting grids you see on just about every page, as well as a small extension called HeaderCount. You won't care about this unless you have dealt with "issue counts" on noticeboards.
- Work on creating and fixing content here on the wiki. I spend my time finding mods that haven't been documented, here or elsewhere, and figure them out myself. I maintain the Arcane Scrolls, OpenBlocks, Railcraft, Twilight Forest, Witchery, and the mods I develop, here on the wiki. If you notice any errors, please leave me a message on my talk page, the FTB Forums, or hop on IRC and ping me (say my full name).
- Develop software to help ease the editing of the wiki
- Translate pages to Spanish, and sometimes translate to Tagalog. The Spanish I speak is Nicañol, or Nicaraguan Spanish, so my translations will be using that dialect (es-ni).
- Elected representative of the wiki for the FTB Core Team

For if you're interested in that sort of thing.
This section is a more in-depth explanation of contacting me.
I will probably not respond to communications via the the forums.
I am on the EsperNet server at all times, though using a bouncer so I will not always literally be present. I am almost always in the following channels:
+ and @ prefixes are not part of the channel name. A + prefix indicates that I am voiced in that channel, and a @ prefix for op.
The best channels to contact me are the ones that I am OP'd or voiced in, especially #SatanicSanta, #TheSteamTank, and #FTB-Wiki. If I am not responding, ping me (say my full nickname, as seen in the userlist). I use various nicknames. The nicknames that are grouped to my NickServ account are as follows:
- SatanicSanta: I'm currently just chilling.
- Santa|afk: I'm AFK.
I will respond to every single message posted on my user talk page.
