Hello, I'm Jakob. I've edited Wikipedia from an account about 2.5 years now (I spent my first months with the account King jakob c), but before that I made a few IP edits. I've made 17,000 edits here and nearly 37,000 to Wikimedia projects.

I have been an admin here since March 30, 2015. I'm a content admin who spends far more time writing articles than admining, but I still do admin work, mainly in UAA and CSD, but I also sometimes make minor adjustments to DYK queues. My first RFA in December 2013 failed (7/9/7), but my second one in March 2015 passed (79/11/5). I'm also an inactive admin on Wikidata and have made over 2500 edits to Wikimedia Commons.

I reviewed the nomination for the second most-viewed DYK ever. My own most-viewed DYKs:

  1. Harveys Lake (Pennsylvania), 10,436 views
  2. Laurel Run mine fire, 10,426 views
  3. Seventy One, 7,929 views
  4. Big Wapwallopen Creek, 7,096 views
  5. Kase Run, ~6,900 views
  6. Blackberry Run, 6,364 views
  7. Quakake Tunnel, 5,479 views
  8. Deep Creek (Pennsylvania), 5,154 views

If you want to contact me, use my talk page (not this page). I also have e-mail enabled, but I'd rather not use that unless it's very important to keep the discussion private. If you do leave me an e-mail, please leave a {{YGM}} template on my talk page, since I probably won't respond in a timely manner otherwise. Thanks.
