About me

I'm Tar Lócesilion. In short, I have almost 9 years of editing experience and 65.000 edits made globally. Only on my home wiki, I have created over 2.000 pages in 16 namespaces, including 140 articles (much more improved or curated), 180 templates and 420 categories. Admin permissions on a few wikis (currently, just 2), membership in local Arbitration Committee, and 79% support in stewards elections. 2 "main-ns-focused" WikiProjects created or co-ordinated, and several "meta-ns-focused". Many newbies "brought up" to "mature Wikipedians", many product deployments facilitated.

My work

I work with the Movement Strategy Process Core Team. My task is to support all the activities of the process related to Meta-Wiki.

  • I publish most of the content, I'm not the only author though. When it comes to the draft recommendations and translations, I'm not their author at all. Draft recommendations were prepared by the Working Groups members, and the translations by an external firm.
  • I watch talk pages and give explanations in discussions. I do it however as I personally see things, because I don't receive instructions from the Core Team.

In 2017, as a liaison more focused on outreach, I worked on (with communities from):

  • multilingual wikis (Meta-Wiki, Wikidata, Commons, etc.)
  • English-language wikis
  • those wikis (communities) which did't have a coordinator specialized in their language hired by WMF.
Disclaimer: I provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.

I am an independent consultant and not an agent or employee of WMF and have no employeer-employee relationship with WMF. I operate as an entirely independent entity. I choose my own working hours, working place and style of work. My potential act on behalf of WMF which may be regarded as over and above my duties and responsibilities would be unauthorized, unlawful and I would be personally liable.
