I was previously an employee of the Wikimedia Foundation, but my employment ended on 9/15/15. I'm now just another editor and administrator here. I welcome comments on my talk page. I declare a conflict of interest with regards to all edits about Wikipedia or the Wikimedia projects during the period of my employment, and about and Reddit, inc. during the period of my employment there (2016-2017). I further have a conflict around Atlassian as of 2017 and VIPKid in 2019.

About me

I was the Director of Community Advocacy for the Wikimedia Foundation. In my volunteer capacity, I can usually be found on en:Wikipedia or meta, where I am an elected administrator. I previously was, by virtue of my job, a bureaucrat on the Wikimedia Strategic Planning wiki.

I was a member of the election committee for the Board of Trustees in 2007, 2008, and 2009, and the staff liaison to the committee for 2011 and 2013 elections. I also sat on the first permanent standing election committee, for 2016.

On IRC, my username is usually Philippe.

Follow me on Twitter! My username is philippe_in_sf there, or on reddit I am u/AchievementUnlockd.

On en:Wikipedia, I am an administrator (and very much appreciate the support that the community showed in my RfA), a former Checkuser and oversighter, and a former member of the OTRS team. If you run across an OTRS edit of mine, I request that you contact me before reverting or changing it - there may be privacy concerns involved or other reasons that the edit needs to stay as it is, but I'm happy to talk to you about it (without divulging any confidential information) if you have a question.

Unrelated to my on-wiki stuff, the important thing to know, I suppose, is that I'm in San Francisco, California and I am the community strategist at VIPKid , formerly Director of Community at reddit and Atlassian.

I have two favorite mottos, which I have stolen from others and have printed on various things: A domino factum est istud et mirabile in oculis nostris. (from Elizabeth I) and Plus est en vous (from various sources in Bourgundy).

Non nobis solum.

I see that you semi-protected the article Halloween with the reason "Here we go again". This made me smile and laugh. NHRHS2010 talk 23:04, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

User toolbox
This is nothing but a stolen toolbox that contains some of the tools that I use most often (and have used most often since long before I was an admin). The credit goes to User:Fuhghettaboutit.
