have you here.

I'm not sure if it is proper to introduce yourself upon joining this list,
thought I would. My name is Derric Atzrott. I'm an editor on the English
Wikipedia and feel that the gender gap on Wikipedia, and honestly in many
in general, is problematic and something needs to be done about it. I do
of informal outreach, though in the past month or two I've begun trying to
bit more formal outreach, and have, since I realized there was a problem,
to place an emphasis on getting females to become editors.
The news of the deaths of both Andrianne and Cynthia is heart breaking.
didn't know either of them it always pains me to hear about members of our
community dying. The death of both of them, who I understand were active
this list, has prompted me to try to step up my efforts as well, which is
have joined this list.
Honestly, there is a good chance to I'll mostly just lurk on this list
like I do
wikitech-l and libraries, but if I see anything I can help with I'll do my
to do so, and if any of you know of anything I can help with, please ask.
Sorry if this email is inappropriate for the list.
