About me

I have been a contributor on various Wikimedia Foundation projects for several years as user Moonriddengirl. I have also been an active contributor at the cross-project volunteer response team, helping to handle e-mails addressed to the Foundation. My work with the Foundation began in May 2011.

My work

My role is to facilitate communication between staff and all the communuties in every project under the umbrella of the Wikimedia Foundation, to help ensure that both sides of this important equation are pulling together towards our common goal. In addition to setting up a system of communication whereby communities may find and reach out to staff, I am already at work on several projects intended to help improve understanding of the communities among staff and of staff among communities. Among others, I will be working closely with the Community Advocates, including Volunteer Community Advocates such as Naosaku. I welcome feedback and input.
Disclaimer: I work for or 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. Although I am a member of the Legal and Community Advocacy team, I am not a lawyer. The legal team can only represent the Wikimedia Foundation on legal matters, so we are unable to give legal advice to others, including community members, editors, or contributors. Communications with members of the legal team are not consultations and do not create any confidential relationship.
