Hey! My name's Matt Flaschen. My original username was Superm401. I'm from Lower Merion, Pennsylvania. I'm 31. I graduated from Georgia Tech in December 2010, with a BS in Computer Science. I'm currently living in Philadelphia.

I am a Wikipedia administrator. Feel free to make requests on my talk page or on the administrators' noticeboard.

I am also a software engineer on the Wikimedia Collaboration team, but this is my personal account. Mattflaschen-WMF is my account for edits I make as part of my job.

I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, 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.

Wikipedia Quotes[edit]

  • "There wasn't a big encyclopedia, then people were allowed to edit it just for fun. There was nothing, and people were allowed to create an encyclopedia." -- Notinasnaid
  • "At the end of the day we are all flawed meatbots trying to build a great encylopedia together." -- R.D.H. (Ghost In The Machine)
  • "I'm addicted to reading Wikipedia, it's the only encyclopedia that grows faster than you can read :D" -- Taraborn


I'm mostly a wikignome. Besides admin duties, I do verification and referencing, and update diagrams and illustrations to use SVG, an easily editable vector graphics format. Below are a few of my other contributions.
