Introduction and hello

Joseph Seddon-6
Dear translation-l,

I wanted to take the opportunity to introduce myself, I've just joined the Fundraising department at the WMF as the Fundraiser Translation Coordinator. Ill be helping out with working with the translation community over the 2012 Fundraiser and I can honestly say I am nothing short of excited. Ill be working remotely for the most part from the United Kingdom, Some of you will know me from my volunteer involvement but a load of you wont so Id like to give you a bit of my background.

First edited the english wikipedia in 2006 but didnt really become active till 2007 working on tropical cyclones and dispute resolution. Iv been pretty heavily involved with Wikimedia UK since it reformed in 2008 join its board in 2009 working with the GLAM's and supporting the chapters fundraising activities. I left leaving the board of WMUK in February 2011 and a couple of months later joined the Wikimedia Foundation as a production coordinator working on the 2011-12 Fundraiser. In real life I just recently completed a 4 year masters degree in Exploration and Resource Geology at Cardiff University.

I look forward to the coming months. If any of you have any questions feel free to post on this list, grab me in the #wikimedia-translation or #wikimedia-fundraising channels (nick: Seddon OR Seddon_WMF) or email me direct at jseddon {at}

Thanks all

Joseph Seddon
