Hi I'm John. I'm the Co-Founder of Miraheze, active Operations member and Steward.

If you don't know who to go to about something, then the answer is probably me or I'll know (hint, it's probably me!).

And if it's about any of the following, you're better of coming to me because these are my areas of expertise:
