About me

Hi there. I've been a sysop here since 2008, and was an oversighter between 2012 and 2019. Most of my substantial edits have been to articles relating to popular culture, which is a fancy way of saying "games, sports and music". More recently I tend to do stuff like adding references to biographies of living persons.

I follow the football teams of my hometown and my country (for my sins). I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area since 2016.

You can get in touch with me by clicking here, hitting the "new section" or "+" tab in the menubar to the top of this page. If your request requires privacy, please feel free to find me on IRC (as "foks"), or get me via email (if you have an account).

I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation (as JSutherland (WMF)), but this is my personal account. Edits, statements, or other contributions made from this account are my own, and may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
