User:SuperHamster has done a remarkable amount of volunteering for Wikimedia in the United States this year. In addition to supporting the Ohio Wikimedians User Group, this year he was an organizer for both Wiki Loves Monuments 2018 in the United States (which had over 10,000 entries and almost 2,000 participants), and WikiConference North America 2018 which took place at the Ohio State University Libraries and the Columbus Metropolitan Library.

Deb sent two emails to Wikitech-l with many links regarding the events at the Wikimedia Technical Conference. [1] [2]. I encourage anyone who would like to know what happened at the conference to read Deb's emails.

Wikidata's sixth birthday is on 29 October 2018. I will take this opportunity to say that, from my perspective, I think that Lydia has done a lot of good work on Wikidata, and I think that the project is flourishing partly due to her consistently good execution. She doesn't call a lot of attention to herself, but I think that what she has done is impressive.
