|Hi! My name is Johan Elisson. I am a Gothenburger working as a technical communicator and information architect at the Product Information business area of Semcon, a global product development consultancy. I got this job in part thanks to my long time dedication to Wikipedia. I have studied engineering physics at BSc level and engineering mathematics and computational science at MSc level at Chalmers University of Technology.
I rarely write about subjects related to my work or education though, my main interests on Wikipedia are history and sports, with a concentration on Swedish military history and Swedish football. In my spare time, I follow the football club IFK Göteborg, and I currently work extra as matchday supporter liaison officer. I have been a board member of the supporters' club and I co-authored the book Vi som är från Göteborg åker aldrig hem med sorg, published in 2014, documenting the fan culture history of IFK Göteborg.
I am probably best known as the creator of the WikiProject on Football and the Football Portal, both largely based on cooperating and getting people to work together. I made my first edits to Wikipedia in July 2004 and became an administrator in October 2006. I have been largely inactive here for the last few years with only a handful of edits per month, but I regularly check my watchlist and talk page, and occasionally do major work on expanding/rewriting articles or creating new articles.
My edit counting page which says thatis not really interresting for anything but the adminship nomination process, and seeing I actually passed that one, the edit counts have no value at all. I feel I can make useful contributions to Wikipedia no matter if I have admin privilegies or not, and I definitely agree with the meta
