Users by language

I am (Gustavo) Góngora, hailing from Trondheim, Norway. I am a philologist and an Mphil in Linguistics student at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU Dragvoll), in Norway (where else?), and I am active in many parts of Wikimedia (on and off). I am active on both the Spanish and the Catalan Wikipedia as an editor and administrator, as a volunteer with Wikimedia Norge (and previously with Wikimedia España, Wikimedia Uruguay, Iberocoop and Amical), and some other international Wikimedia-related projects. In the past I was also an ArbCom member on the Spanish Wikipedia. From 2011 through 2012 I was jury member of Wiki Loves Monuments.

I have been a Wikimedian since July 2006, an administrator and bureaucrat on the Spanish Wikipedia since April 2007, an administrator on the Catalan Wikipedia since 2009, and a checkuser on the Catalan Wikipedia even before that. I have written more than 4,000 articles in different languages, mostly by translating from English into Spanish, Catalan, French or Norwegian. I have been an active user on the Norwegian Wikipedia (bokmål) since 2012.

In 2009 I was unsuccessfully a candidate for the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees. In 2011 I was part of Wikimedia España (Spain) Board of Trustees, within the Public Relations sector. Between 2008 and 2011 I was a press room contact for Wikimedia Foundation.

You can sometimes find me on Freenode IRC in channels like #wikipedia-es and #wikimedia. You could try to locate me under the nicks Gongora, Gustavo86 or Terere.
