If my toki pona wasn't clear, just want to thank y'all for helping me with all the random questions.

tenpo lili la mi toki wawa lon lipu kulupu sin. :)

Pretty sure wawa isn't needed there but just imagining wawa after most verbs as a 'in a way to show dominance' or maybe just confidence in this case, just amuses me to no end.

As I can see, your Toki Pona is actually quite good. "wawa" fits here, as it means "confident", too:

wawa ADJECTIVE strong, powerful; confident, sure; energetic, intense

You may find this chapter "Adverbs, Auxiliary Verbs" interesting.

Or the whole lessons:

On my foe list are the sockpuppets janKipo and janSilipu because of permanent spamming.
