Hi there, I started off on Wikipedia as a newbie, like any other. On November 25, 2008 I became an voluntary janitor for Wikipedia and now carry out many administrative tasks to help keep the wiki running, including deleting and protecting pages, performing blocks and unblocks and helping out the users on Wikipedia (which you don't have to be an admin to do).
I encourage you to leave a message on my talk page if you have any comments, questions, concerns or requests for help. I hope you enjoy using Wikipedia, and decide to stay, if you do, please consider creating an account.
So you might be wondering what exactly I do around here on Wikipedia. Well, I help out in quite a few places:
Request an account - Account creation requests, I help to create usernames for users who can't create one themselves, or whose names are too similar to an existing account so an admin/account creator usually will create them.
Miscellany for deletion - where Wikipedians decide what should be done with problematic pages in the namespaces outside of the main namespace (also called the "article namespace") which aren't covered by other specialised deletion discussion areas.
For those of you that use IRC or have never used it before, you can feel free to message on the freenode network. This is the network that Wikimedia uses (un-officially) and we have many channels on this network. If you would like to know more about the network please read this and if you wish to support the network, see this page. So what do I do on IRC? Well, I'm a 'channel operator' for many Wikimedia and other channels, which means that I make sure that everything is in order - no spamming, trolling or canvassing allowed! Any users that abuse the channels may be quietened or banned (like an administrator blocks users on Wikipedia) for a specific period of time. If you require any help from me or any Wikimedia Channel Operators, feel free to join #wikimedia-opsconnect where we will try to answer any queries you may have.
