About me[edit]

Greetings, to whomever it may concern! Let me start off by saying howdy, and welcome to my user page! Most Wikipedians here just call me "I.B." or "Ill Barr" (for those of you who are viewing this page through a sans serif typeface, that's "Ill" as in an "ailment" or "malady", not the Roman numeral for the Arabic numeral '3'). I have been editing the English Wikipedia off-and-on since around roughly mid-2006, first as an anonymous I.P. user, then eventually as a registered user in 2008. I've used a variety of different user names over the years, before settling on this present moniker that you see before you today.

I have been editing under this present user name since March of 2010; this is my unified user name across all of the Wikimedia Foundation's various projects. On other projects aside from Wikipedia, I am particularly active over on the English Wikiquote and the Wikimedia Commons, and have been an administrator on the former since January of 2015. I also dibble and dabble occasionally on the English Wikisource and Wiktionary, as well. On the Wikimedia Commons, I mainly upload public domain content, and photographs that I have taken myself. Most of my photographs are licensed and distributed under the Creative Commons licensing standard, and you can view them here, if you'd like.

If you require assistance with a certain issue or quandary that you have regarding the course of Wikipedian events, please do not hesitate to ask me for help by leaving me a talk page message, here. I'll be glad to assist you in any way I can, to help in absolving the issue. Or, if I've made a mistake somewhere, which we're all bound to do at some point, you can bring it to my attention so I can better rectify it. Or, if you just want to chat about anything, anything at all that your heart desires, you can, of course, do that as well.
