Epicgenius is the name of this wikimedia user. He is from New York City. He is also known as "ryanmng" in other parts of the internet.

About him[edit]

The first part of his username is "epic" from the YouTube channel Epic Rap Battles of History, while the second part is "genius" from lyrics website is mostly an English Wikipedia editor.

He likes mathematics (especially anything relating to very complex algebra, geometry, calculus, and mathematical proofs) and is very good at it. He also likes computer science, especially robots and anything having to do with artificial intelligence or biotechnology. Space travel and space exploration is also interesting to him, as is energy, the natural environment, and various types of cars, his favorite being the Tesla Model S. He really likes theme parks around the world, and his favorites are Disney parks and Universal Studios parks. His favorite TV shows include Grey's Anatomy, Friends, The Office, and Modern Family.

So it may surprise the reader that he actually edits English Wikipedia articles about public transportation, other infrastructure, and architecture. (He also sometimes edits theme park articles and other interesting topics that are either in the news or discovered by happenstance.)

These are among the other things he does on English Wikipedia at least:

He is also a Commons user who only drops by sporadically. His main task is recategorizing pictures that are in the wrong categories and move categories to appropriate categories. He also uploads pictures from Flickr and helps to transfer files from enwiki if needed. A lot of pictures still need specific categorization.

And the reason he takes bad pictures is...

  • He owns an iPad and a smartphone but no actual high-quality cameras.
  • He doesn't have time to take good pictures. He has things to do, like class and work.
