About me

I've been an editor since 2006; in my time on the projects I've handled deletions, patrolling, created a load of articles, and participated in pretty much every major area. In October 2011, the WMF asked me to take up the then-new role of Community Liaison, Product Development, which I worked on until late 2013 - at which point we now have five Liaisons. I consider that pretty successful :). Having trained up the newcomers, I shifted to the role of Product Analyst.

Outside of Wikipedia; I completed my law degree in 2011, with middling grades at best since I spent a big chunk of the course campaigning for the Liberal Democrats, helping manage both the 2010 general election and the 2011 local ones in my constituency. I've also done some work with the Open Rights Group and the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA). Well, I've never worked for them per se, but I am solely responsible for their members' profit margins. That ought to count for something.

My work

I'm a researcher and primarily work around reader data, particularly for Mobile.

Dear Oliver,

Thanks for all your help in managing our community relations to help design the new article feedback tools together.

As a result of your tireless work and great insights, I am confident that we can provide a better user experience and engage more readers to become editors over time!

And I am deeply grateful for all you've done to make me feel welcome as a newbie on Wikipedia. I have learned so much from you already and can't wait to do more together.

I look forward to a great collaboration with you in 2012! Fabrice Florin (talk) 21:27, 13 January 2012 (UTC)
