Hi, my name is John. I am an administrator here on English Wikisource, on the Multilingual Wikisource, Latin Wikisource, Wikimedia Commons, and an arbitrator on English Wikipedia. I am also the president of Wikimedia Australia.

While you are here, please take the time to look around, and ask me any questions on my talk page, email jayvdb-at-gmail.com, or IRC #wikisource.

The easiest place to start is our Proofread of the Month. It only takes a few minutes to correct a few spelling mistakes.
