Welcome to Bandipedia!




Woah, my name is C.Syde, and I am an administrator on the Crash Bandicoot Wiki. I was introduced to Crash Bandicoot in 2001, where I quickly became a real fan of the series, of the Play Station 1 era, although I also like Crash Nitro Kart. I have never owned any of the games as I don't have a Play Station, but I have played them whenever I got the chance.

I have played all the Crash Bandicoot games from the Play Station 1 era, and Crash Nitro Kart. Though I have watched various cutscenes from the other Crash games online, those games just don't really appeal to me. Crash Tag Team Racing, Crash of the Titans, and Mind over Mutant were absolutely terrible if you ask me.

I am fairly active on this wiki in general, but I am also found on several other wikis, including the Sims wiki as an administrator and featured editor. When it comes to my contributions here, I can be found adding images to galleries, removing or correcting potential incorrect information, adding new information, replacing and removing duplicate or otherwise obsolete images, categorising and licensing unlicensed and uncategorised images, and clearing out unused images.

I used to use Adobe Photoshop CS4 to remove any backgrounds around the images I uploaded until December 2015, and I did my best to obscure any watermarks on the images that were exported from Crash Mania. The process of obscuring watermarks without screwing up the images was sometimes quite a challenge. Thankfully, the master copies of a lot of the images have since been re-uploaded without the watermarks, which saves me the trouble of having to remove the watermarks from a lot of the images.

Although I no longer have access to Adobe Photoshop CS4 as of December 2015, I eventually discovered some free online photo editing softwares here and here that allow me to remove the backgrounds from images, and cropping them without automatically re-adding the background to them. I do miss Photoshop, but at least I can still remove backgrounds from images and crop them.

As of 2016 I have become a Deviant Artist and submitted Crash Bandicoot artwork which I drew myself. My original Crash Bandicoot artwork gallery can be found here.

I am also a member of the Community Council team on Fandom. I was invited to join the group on the 31st March 2017, which I joined on the 10th April 2017. But I won't get into too much of that here since it's just a product testing and feedback group which doesn't give me any additional tools or authorities on local wikis.
