Varnent In a Nutshell[edit]

Je suis Charlie.svg
Queer youth advocate, Wikimedian, WikiQueerian, policy wonk, tech nerd, nonprofit capacity building geek, Episcopalian & video gamer - among other things I'm sure I could add if I was a bigger fan of writing about myself. Face-grin expert.svg

Fortunately for you (well...) - some folks at WikiQueer felt more inspired about getting my bio going than I did. You can read the outcome of that ongoing effort over at WikiQueer.

NOTICE: I work as a contractor for the Wikimedia Foundation, but my work on this username is in my capacity as a volunteer and should be treated as such. While I was a volunteer for many years before my work with the Foundation I started with them officially in September 2015. Unless otherwise stated, any edit to this wiki by me is an act of a regular member of the community, not a legal or official office action of the Wikimedia Foundation. Official acts by me in the line of my work will be done from my office account, User:GVarnum-WMF.

Tip of the day...
Linking articles: the internal link

Internal links are a great way to alert users to pertinent information. However, remember that excessive linking can detract from an article. Only create links that are relevant to the context of the article.

Internal links are created by placing double brackets around the word you wish to link, for example: [[Subject X]]. You can link to a specific section by adding the # sign and the name of the section after the article name. For example: [[Subject X#The beginning]].
