(en) Hello, I am MJL!
Before I start, it probably is worth reading my other user pages.
I contribute to a variety of Wikimedia projects including English Wikisource, Scots Wikipedia, and a few others. While I currently do not speak many languages, I have tend to dabble in a few to contribute in additional projects. I am mostly interested in Connecticut-related topics, but I also like government, public policy, and history. Offline I am a politician, but this account has nothing to do with that.
I find contributing to Wikimedia projects extremely meaningful personally, and I enjoy every minute spent here! I have been trying to promote this proposal to create an additional WMF project known as WikiLaw. I was also selected to serve on the 2019 English Wikinews Elections Committee. I used to run the bi-monthly newsletter for Wikisource called Wikisource:News, but I still encourage everyone to subscribe. I am also an administrator on Scots Wikipedia which has been an ordeal. I likely used to be best known for my contributions to English Wikipedia, though.
For the most part, I try to make people's experiences here pleasant and lovely. I really love helping people learn about the wiki, but I also like learning about cool and interesting subjects. I consider myself a bit of a WikiOtter and can get frustrated when I perceive newer users getting treated poorly. If you ever want to talk to someone about your experiences on any project, I am always open and try to be understanding.
I expanded this userpage with a bit more information this time around. Ping me or write on any of my talk pages for more information. I try to be available when I can. Hopefully, you will see me around!
Thank you all! :D
