About

As you have scrolled this far down the page, here's some information about me (if you're interested in reading it). I have been editing the Simple English Wikipedia since October 2020. I get involved in quite a few different areas here, depending on the type of work I feel like doing. Recently, I have felt like more of a WikiGnome, but I'm still not sure which Wikipedia fauna I am. I agree very strongly with the aim of this project, to make articles easier to understand for non-native speakers. I also find it is helpful for native speakers, where articles on the English Wikipedia are often too complex and only experts on a subject are able to fully understand them.

This community trusted me to become an administrator in July 2021 and a bureaucrat in December 2022, and so I often help out in administrative areas. If you have any questions about the way I've used these tools, please message me on my talk page. If you're still not satisfied or have larger concerns, please start a discussion on Wikipedia:Administrators' noticeboard or Wikipedia:Requests for de-adminship for input from others.

In real life, I am a bus enthusiast and, despite not working in the industry, have helped to implement better bus services in rural areas.
