Looking at the logs for User:Kumioko, his original account was renamed to User:Kumioko (renamed) whose first contributions
were in 2007. He had some trouble with his sig later in the year, so it's plausible those could be his first contributions as a newb.
After his first fallout, he had so many accounts (mainly as IPs), I could never figure out what was going on. WP had a very hard time keeping him banned.
Just to clarify a couple things here:
I did my first edits in late 2004 (I believe it was November) as an IP. I did about maybe 20 edits between my first one and when I created an account in 2006. I originally created one that contained an Email address and was told to change it, a couple months later I noticed that and created the Kumioko account.
I mostly editing military history topics for the first couple years and then decided to start building up WikiProject United States and it's subordinate projects because I saw them in a constant state of decay. That gained me a lot of enemies from some other projects that maintain ownership over those topics like US Roads.
In February 2012 I had an interaction with a user named Markv88 that insisted that I couldn't add the WikiProject United States banner to articles he "owned". Although he violated 3RR and I turned him in for it, admin Ultraexactzz decided I should be blocked instead. A year or so later he confessed he didn't look close enough and shouldn't have done it, but at that point the damage was done. It was at this point, I basically gave up useful editing because they showed be the rules were at the whims of each individual admins discretion. I got fed up and scrambled my account editing as an IP for a short while. I was targetted routinely and accuses as a "sock" because my volume of editing started to go up and I used a lot of IP's to edit depending on where I was (as I did when I was using my account). Since I wiped my email and scrambled my password they agreed to change my username to Kumioko (renamed) in an attempt to edit and not be accused of being a sock by zealots intent on blood!
I continued to be harassed, bullied and targetted by others because at that point blood was in the water and it attracted sharks. Since I had been blocked and had a "history" of socking, it was all over and some made legitimate editing unbearable. I was continuously accused of socking regardless of the merits. Due to the wide variation of IP's I used to edit, it was impossible to prove otherwise.
I later got fed up again and left and attempted to make a clean start account. I was again accused of socking because the Wikipedia clean start rules are completely worthless. That is when the KumiokoCleanStart account was created as a means to editing and also yes to be a bit of a slap in the face to those that wanted the impossible from WP:Cleanstart. At this point there was really no hope for legitimate editing anymore but I tried anyway and did get some good stuff done for a while but was blocked again.
At this point I was socking continuously and left a lot of very hateful messages and emails for the Arbcom and others. At this point, I had been accused of socking so much and mostly incorrectly, that I really didn't have anything to lose anymore. I figured if they were going to accuse me of something I may as well do it to the best of my ability.
I had started to edit Wikia for a while as Reguyla and then created that as a sock there as well. When there was a decision to unblock me I asked to use the Reguyla account but never really got the chance to edit with it due to the constant and instant harassment I got.
When that account was blocked on ENWP I edited at Commons and Meta for a while but Michael Maggs (on Commons) and a couple others (and a couple folks on Meta) didn't want me there so they found petty reasons to block me while on several occasions watching and participating as others trolled, harassed, hounded and insulted me to get a result so that they could block me and they did. This was also true of IRC where AlexZ even asked his friends on Wikia to ban me from their IRC and discord channels and they did. I can access them now only because I do not use my actual Wikia account and I have to be careful how I interact and phrase things I won't be found out.
Now I have given up legitimate editing, I sock on multiple WMF sites constantly, have gotten thousands of innocent IPs and account blocked as socks of me, I have done the same on IRC and continue to be a complete pain in the ass. At the same time, a number of people have taken to Joe Jobbing my account and have also sent EMails, IRC messages, talk page messages, some other Wiki's, Discord, etc. To James Alexander and others posing as me. Due to the complete incompetence of the WMF and people like James Alexander and abusive individuals on the WMF projects like Michael Maggs, Ajraddatz, AlexZ, RD, James ofur, Floquenbeam, Fram, Binksternet, BeyondMyKen and others, I am not focusing my time on bringing the WMF down, contributing to the decline of the WMF projects in any way I can since they do not want to improve them and building up the military wiki on Wikia.
Of course I missed a lot of details but that is already in the To long didn't read (TLDR) category.
