As an administrator, I'm not quite omnipotent, but I can do awesome things like moving and deleting pages, protecting and unprotecting pages, blocking vandals, and so on. If you need any such tasks performed, please feel free to click here or email me and ask. If I haven't responded in a day, or two, you had better ask someone else because I must have gone on holiday, or something.
The Wiknic is a part of the nationwide Great American Wiknic. We'll be grilling, getting to know each other better, and building the L.A. Wikipedia community! The event is tentatively planned for Pan-Pacific Park (map) and will be held on Sunday, July 6, 2014 from 9:30am to 4pm or so. Please RSVP and volunteer to bring food or drinks if possible!
Join us on Sunday, September 21, from 11am to 4pm at Kramer Studio in Mid-City (map) for a meetup and edit-a-thon!

Please RSVP and consider becoming a member of the SoCal task force to help us improve articles about everything in the region.
