Hi. My name is FriyMan and I have been here for over 6 months. I have learned quite a bit since then and I am usually active at WP:UAA and RTRC. I am willing to assist you in understanding key Wikipedia policies and getting the hang of using editing interfaces. To contact me, just leave a message at my talk.
Hey there! I'm hwalk (AKA Bojo1498). I've been a wikipedia editor for over 3 years, and in that time I've learned a lot. I love helping people who share the goal to further the encyclopedia! I'm happy to answer any and all questions you may have! Just leave me a message on my talk page!
I enjoy writing and editing articles about art, artists, history and social issues. I have written and edited a number of articles about the United States, United Kingdom, India and other paces. I like making and editing articles so that they are quality, cited articles - and like to nominate pages for the Did you know? section of the main page. There are a lot of tools that I've learned about to make some things simpler and I enjoy working with new people.
I have a wide range of interests including the history and geogaphy of south east England, anything on the front page that needs fixing, vandal fighting and issuing warnings for vandalism. I have written a number of new articles which have featured in the "Did you know?" section of the front page. I am always pleased to help other editors when I can or point them to someone with more specialised knowledge. Yes I work in British English for the most part.
I am something of a WikiGnome, and spend much of my time here new pages patrolling, nominating pages for speedy deletion, and using STiki. I am also active at WP:RFPP, WP:UAA, and other such areas, and have created >130 articles. The weekends are the ideal time for me, but most days after 2 PM Central Time would be the ideal time to contact me.
Hi, I'm Gilderien, an editor from the north of England. A previous graduate of an adoption program myself, I am willing to provide advice on an informal basis, or run users through my Adoption School. I am also a Good Article Recruiter, and work generally in the topic areas of Mountains and Geography, Religious Buildings, and the DYK and GA projects.
I generally work on political articles, especially elections across the world (excluding the anglosphere) but i also occasionally dabble in other articles. At the moment i am online pretty often and check in to wikipedia regularly. Though after a few months i will be cutting down on availability. I've edited for at least 2 years.
Major theme-park and Disney fan, so you'll find me in articles related to theme parks, roller coasters, and such. Also dabble in video game articles. Will work in just about any article if I find some noteworthy information to add that isn't already there ... provided it's cited, of course.
Hi, I'm MrX, and I want to adopt you! I have edited as an IP since June 2006, and as a registered user since April 2010. I am on the site almost every day, and will update this profile if that changes. My primary areas of interest are medieval history, biographies, LGBT related topics, civil rights, photography and science. Areas where I can help are formatting, uploading images, understanding policy and guidelines, fighting vandalism, negotiating content disputes and using some of the automated tools such as AWB, Twinkle, and STiki.
I'm an editor since 2004 and an admin since 2008, working mainly as a WikiGnome in various areas of the project. I'm always happy to adopt new users who wish to have an experienced editor they can ask whatever questions that come up during editing. Just leave me a message on my talk page!
I am an editor of almost four years, having joined in February 2010. My interests are aviation, military history, politics, technology, religion, and sociology. I have authored 28 good articles, 5 A-class articles and 2 featured articles. While I am familiar with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines and areas such as AFD and NPP, I want to impart all my knowledge pertaining to content creation and review. If you would like to primarily write articles and are looking for an adopter, please drop a note at my talk page.
I started editing Wikipedia 2-3 years ago as an IP editor. Then, I created an account 2 years ago but lost the password. Until early this year, I had abandoned Wikipedia nearly totally. Early this year, I created another account (this account) and started off roughly, being a victim of bites. But I hung on and continued to persevere on Wikipedia. Now, I am mostly focusing on maintaining tank related articles and other military-related articles or WikiProjects such as WP:TANKS (which I founded) and WP:MILHIST. I am also a member of WP:Intros. You can read more about me on my user page. I am a armored-warfare fanatic by the way! Anyways, leave a message on my talk page or email me to contact me!
I have been a contributor on Wikipedia since 2006 and spend the majority of my time combating vandalism, helping out new users, working through dispute resolution and conflict of interests. My approach is to understand where you are coming from and where you want to go with your wiki-authorship/experience. I will ask a lot of open ended questions, and help direct you to the best resources available. I have been around a long time, but still don't know everything. I will periodically review your edits (if that is what you're looking for) to help direct you towards your goals.
Hey there I bet you are new and are here to find a friendly adopter who can assist you to become a pro in Wikipedia. Well, you are reading of the Right Person I am an Adopter who can assist you right from the Basics till the final step of Becoming a Pro. I can help you in anything you want any questions or Queries, expect a reply within 5 Hours or below.
Go Phightins! (talk)
I have been around for about two years and have experience in a variety of areas including the Teahouse, Articles for Deletion, and vandalism reversion as well as numerous other Wiki-Projects, mostly related to sports, but in other areas as well. I graduated an adoption course a while back and it was beneficial to me, so I thought I'd give back and adopt someone (or many people) myself. I've completed my my adoption school; a few past adoptees help me out with administrative work allowing me to take on additional adoptees. If you'd like to be adopted, you can either email me or contact me at my talk page. Thus far, I've had two adoptees graduate, about five disappear, two quit, and three in progress. I am currently taking one new adoptee...I have experience with users coming off blocks, brand new users, and users who have been around for a while but just want to further their skills.--Go Phightins!
I originally started off on wikipedia in anti-vandalism and have branched out to other area's. I work on several projects including vandalism patrol, account creation, articles for creation, and other area's of wikipedia. My main areas of interest are science and technology. If you want a friendly individual, who is very experienced on wikipedia, please contact me. Jab843 (talk)
K scheik (talk)
Hey. I'm a young'n (well, relatively), so I may be able to help inexperienced young people (14+) more effectively than others (25+). I have plenty of knowledge on Twinkle, STiki, and can accept a total of 2 users to adopt. I have an impressive knowledge of WikiGnome (or small, seemingly random) activities. Leave me a note on my Talk page if you want me to adopt. I retain the right to deny certain users, but not you though. k_scheik (talk)
Hi, I'm Anastasia, an editor from the United States. I'm active in many areas on Wikipedia, but my main line of work is with article grammar, formatting, and reviewing--minor editing, you might say. I also help out a lot at the Wikipedia Teahouse, welcoming new users. No matter what the above notice says, I am not currently accepting adoptees.
I am a regular editor here at Wikipedia. I am both a rollbacker and reviewer. I usually patrol new pages, fight off vandals, and assist at the Dispute Resolution Noticeboard. I recently joined the Guild of Copy Editors because I want to focus more on improving articles rather than rejecting them. I consider myself an all-around editor that knows a little about a lot of things. I would love to adopt a new user and show them the ways of the 'pedia!
Omni Flames (talk)
I'm pretty active on Wikipedia, and I enjoy fighting vandalism, new page patrolling and relisting and closing discussions at articles for deletion. Occasionally I also do some content work, and when I do it's mainly related to video games or food. I'd love to help you out if you're new to Wikipedia or would like some help. Just leave a message on my talk page.
I'd like to help new users out. I've developed an extended curriculum for new adoptees. I have been active for a long time as editor and as a MediaWiki developer. I'm am independent researcher working on improving the adoption program and making wikipedia more fun for everyone in the community. BO | Talk 17:57, 6 September 2012 (UTC)
I am a teenager in southwest Washington, United States where I study Business Administration at a local community college with the hopes of becoming a politician as an adult. I focus primarily on content creation in political articles. Political articles tend to have a lot more... heated (although friendly, for the most part) debate and I have seen my fair share of it. I have become very familiar with the policies here on Wikipedia. I can help any one looking to add content. (I really appreciate all the anti-vandalism guys and the copyeditors, but I am too arrogant to do anything THAT helpful with so little thanks... I'll take this opportunity to add that I am a cynical and sarcastic person.) If you want to get involved with writing articles, learn more about compromise and find good ways to conduct research, please let me know here and I will set up a curriculum for you. Cheers.

I tend to end up doing mostly behind the scenes work and lots of minor changes. I'm pretty familiar with the site, and I'd be glad to help you out however I can. If you're interested in getting adopted, or just have questions, leave a message on my talk page or email me. My current and past adoptees are shown on userboxes on my user page.
I've been a Wikipedian since 2008 and an administrator since 2011. Although I'm experienced in most areas of Wikipedia, my primary interest has always been working with new users. Wikipedia is a place of limitless potential, but it can be a bit confusing at first! I hope I can make things easier. If I can help with anything at all, feel free to contact me!
The Herald (talk)
Hi, I'm The Herald, an editor from India. I am willing to help any new users who need adoption. I am good at astronomy topics and also being an RCP, can detect vandalism easily. For more info, contact me at my user talk page. I use Twinkle and other such automated tools extensively and review AfC submissions.
Although I spend some time working on articles and maintaining the League of Copyeditors, which I founded, the majority of my time is spent doing recent change patrolling and working with WP:AIV. I'm online haphazardly from 6am to 11pm Pacific Standard Time. There is rarely a day that I don't come on at least for an hour or so, and typically I am on for 3-4 hours a day. I am willing to adopt up to two new users, both spots are currently open.

Hello, I've been editing Wikipedia since 2010 and I am involved in a wide variety of areas. I spend my time reverting vandalism, patrolling newpages, and reviewing articles by new users at Articles for Creation. I also work at improving articles related to whatever wikiprojects I'm interested in at the moment. If you would like adoption you can ask on my talk page. Winner 42 Talk to me! 22:57, 8 May 2015 (UTC)
I've been active in many areas of Wikipedia, taking on whatever fits my interest at the time: article creation, anti-vandalism, article tagging, copy-editing, dispute resolution and others. These days I mostly deal with minor administrative tasks. I operate an adoption school for new adoptees, which covers most of the basic processes of Wikipedia.
Still can't find an adopter?
