    User:Green Giant (Meta) and c:User:Green Giant (Commons). I have been active on several Wikimedia wikis on and off for twelve years. There are several gaps in activity, mainly due to work commitments but I am now able to devote more time to volunteering. Currently I have been given the privilege of three trusted permissions. I have been an OTRS volunteer since September 2014 (I have signed the confidentiality agreements), a Commons Administrator since October 2014, and an English Wikiversity Curator since April 2017. The links to check these are on my main userpage. Usually, I try to split my time between Commons, English Wikipedia and English Wikiversity plus some OTRS activities. Some of the crosswiki work I have done in the past or currently do can be viewed on my user subpage at User:Green Giant/Work, including transferring PD or licensed files to Commons from other wikis and trying to fix the summaries of those that cannot go to Commons. Some of my work on Commons itself includes deletion requests, changing permissions for users and some blocking of disruptive users. In particular I try to give such users an opportunity to change their actions by encouraging them to use their talk pages constructively, which I think is often the key to ameliorating vandalism. For anybody who is interested I am and have been a content creator on several wikis including articles on English Wikipedia and images on Commons, but one of my current projects is to improve the coverage of English Law on Wikiversity and Wikibooks.
