About me

In my real wiki-life, I am User:WhatamIdoing. I've been a regular editor at the English Wikipedia since 2007, and I was in the top 500 most prolific editors of all time for a couple of years. My interests run from medicine to pastry to education, with odd points in between. I also spend a lot of time working as a metapedian, which in my case means supporting WikiProjects through the English Wikipedia's WikiProject Council and helping write policies and guidelines. Official mistakes are made in my staff account. Unofficial mistakes are still made in my personal account. To find me in my volunteer capacity, look for me at WikiProject Medicine on the English Wikipedia.

My work

From June 2013 to September 2023, I was a half-time staff member in the Wikimedia Foundation's Community Relations team. I supported the Editing team's work on VisualEditor since shortly before its launch in 2013, and their work on talk pages since the mw:Talk pages consultation 2019. I want to know more about your community. Please tell me what's special about your project on my talk page, or update m:Tell us about your Wikipedia and share a link with me.
Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
