I've been an editor on enwiki since 2006, and an admin there since early 2011. In my time on the projects I've handled deletions, patrolling, created a load of articles, and participated in pretty much every major area. In October 2011, the WMF asked me to take up the then-new role of Community Liaison, Product Development, which I've been nervously trying not to screw up ever since!
Outside of Wikipedia; I completed my law degree in 2011, with middling grades at best since I spent a big chunk of the course campaigning for the Liberal Democrats, helping manage both the 2010 general election and the 2011 local ones in my constituency. I've also done some work with the Open Rights Group and the Scotch Whisky Association (SWA). Well, I've never worked for them per se, but I am solely responsible for their members' profit margins. That ought to count for something.
My job is to ensure that, when designing features, the Foundation takes the needs and perspectives of editors into account. Along with bringing an editorial perspective to the Foundation, I also work on the engagement our Engineering Department does with contributors. If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas in relation to Engineering's projects, I'm always happy to help. At the moment I'm working on:
- The Article Feedback Tool, Version 5 – a new way for readers to provide feedback and help indirectly contribute to our content.
- New Page Triage – a tool to make the process of New Page Patrol better for both patrollers and new editors
These two projects take up pretty much all of my time at the moment, but hopefully I'll be able to expand my "portfolio" soon enough :).
