It is my pleasure to introduce our newest Wikimedia Community Fellow of
2012, Peter Coombe. As a fellow, Pete will be working with the community to
improve help documentation on English Wikipedia. He’ll be leading a 6 month
effort and taking a data-driven approach to reorganize and rewrite key help
pages in order to make them more usable for new and experienced editors

Pete comes to the fellowships program with an impressive resume. He’s been
editing English Wikipedia as The
wub<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:The_wub>since 2005, he’s an
admin with over 75,000 global edits, and an active
member of Wikimedia UK. Pete volunteered on the Social Media Team in the
2010 Fundraiser, and worked as a Production Coordinator in 2011. He’s got a
B.A. and M.Sci. with honors in Natural Sciences from the University of
Cambridge, and much experience breaking down complex topics into clear
written information. He’s participated twice in a program at Cambridge to
create online teaching and learning modules on advanced materials science
and engineering topics. He’s also worked at The Helpful Book Company,
publishing books that teach senior citizens how to use computers.

Pete’s talent for making the complex seem simple, combined with his
experience A/B testing in the fundraiser and 7 years editing Wikipedia,
make him a great fit for his fellowship project. To follow his work or get
involved in the redesign project, please visit his project
More info about Pete and his project are also on the WMF
Welcome, Pete!
