I'm Gilliam, a Wikipedian since 2005. As an administrator I might control vandalism or patrol the new pages. As a writer, I usually focus on U.S. geographical features. Wik-hopping leads me to most areas of the encyclopedia, and I revel landing on the better-than-expected article. The encyclopedia could use your help, too! Please cite your sources (see toolbox below).
