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:
Thank you for sharing your intimate knowledge about Rwanda, Africa, for getting us closer in news (Amakuru) and images to its nature, culture and people, - you are an awesome Wikipedian! --Gerda Arendt (talk) 10:35, 1 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for all your work on the Paul Kagame article. It's looking loads better already. Once you're done and if you feel like putting it up for GA, I'd be happy to review it. Lemurbaby (talk) 18:04, 5 October 2012 (UTC)
For all your hard work on getting the article on Paul Kagame to GA, and for everything you do to improve coverage of Rwanda on WP. Way to go! Lemurbaby (talk) 04:39, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your work on the RM backlog! The assistance of qualified editors like you is greatly appreciated, and helps the whole project. --BDD (talk) 19:00, 25 June 2013 (UTC)
