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've been 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 will be made in this temporary 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 or say hello at User talk:WhatamIdoing.

My work

For the next couple of months, I'm a part-time independent contractor for the WMF to help them—and all of us!—with some of the upcoming major changes to the software at the Wikipedias. The major part of my job description is to support these changes by "ensuring that our community is represented in the decision-making process and that our planned software adequately reflects user needs". I have been assigned to the Japanese, Polish, and Swedish Wikipedias, and I want to make sure that these communities have the important help and information pages translated and that the software developers hear about their concerns as feedback and on Bugzilla.
