Sydney Poore
Wikipedian in Residence at Cochrane Collaboration

About me

I'm Sydney Poore with the user name FloNight on most English Wikimedia projects. I'm most active on Wikipedia-English. I live in Lexington, KY. I have been an active editor since 2005, and an administrator since 2006. I've created over a hundred articles and made thousands of edits. I have been a member of the Wikipedia English arbitration committee, oversighter, and CheckUser. Currently, I'm a member of the Wikimedia Foundation Fund Dissemination Committee.

I'm an initial member of the Fund Dissemination Committee. Look at this page for an explanation of the framework for the creation and initial operation of the FDC. Since this is a new committee we will be learning as we go. I welcome your ideas about how to make the process better. You can reach me on my talk page on Wikipedia English or meta. Or you can reach me by email.

I'll publicly note any potential conflict of interest at Sydney Poore/FloNight Disclosure for FDC and the way that I'll handle the situation.

The fastest and best way to contact me is by FloNight email.

My work

I am currently a part time remote Wikipedian in Residence at Cochrane Collaboration Like most WiR, my primary role is to be a liaison between Cochrane and Wikimedia. When I am editing Wikipedia as part of my work at Cochrane, I always strive to strictly abide by Wikipedia's accepted practices on conflicts of interest and neutrality. I will always work in the best interest of Wikipedia, because that is in line with the Cochrane's educational mission, too. For more information, see the initial job posting Wikipdia in Residnece at Cochrane Collaboration and the blog post announcement.
