I've been a member of Wikipedia since February 2006, and I was promoted to administrator in April 2016. I currently live in London, United Kingdom, having previously lived in Rwanda for several years. When I'm not reading some of the fine articles written by others, I tend to divide my Wiki-time between three main areas:
- Article writing, particularly those related to Rwanda, with occasional excursions into other topics. My long term goal is to get all Rwanda related articles up to B class or better, but it's slow work!
- WikiGnome activity, making minor fix ups here and there, links to disambiguation pages etc. I recommend WP:AWB for this kind of work.
- Administrative tasks and consensus building - my favourite haunt is WP:RM, where I involve myself in some discussions, close others, and work with the editors there on the direction of that process and all the policies around article titles, primary topics and notability. Now that I'm an administrator, I intend to start slowly learning the ropes in the other areas of admin activity.
I am happy to consider any reasonable administrative requests, please just leave me a message on my talk page and I'll look into it. Requests to blank the main page, block User:Jimbo Wales, or delete the Wikipedia article will likely be rejected, however....
My current username is a Kinyarwanda word, whose literal meaning is news. It is the most common greeting in the country, equivalent to the English "how are you". The dialogue goes as follows:
- Amakuru? (What's the news?)
- Ni meza. (It is good.)
I started editing under the separate account User:Steverwanda in 2006, and this user account has been renamed twice - it started as User:SteveRwanda, and was briefly also User:Muraho. I currently have two WP:Alternative accounts set up - User:Amakuru-Confirmed, and User:Amakuru-NotConfirmed.
