About me

Moin, I'm Jan. In my volunteer capacity, you can find me as Jan eissfeldt, which also happens to be my nick on IRC. I started contributing to Wikipedia - first and foremost to its German language version - in March 2004 and tend to edit topics related to philosophy of language, logics, macroeconomics, and philosophy of science in English, German or Spanish. However, you may also encounter me working on articles concerning philosophical aspects of the differences between common and civil law; an issue heavily interacting with my preferred academic pet: argumentation theory. I currently operate from East Asia.

My work

My foundation role is to help the WMF improve and scale its Support and Safety programs. Therefore, I'm not only always keen to learn more about the cultures of various project communities but also happy to help volunteers get access to information and resources they need from the Wikimedia Foundation. In case you are unsure if I can help you, please feel free to ask. If it turns out I can't, I will try to guide you to people or resources who can.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.

Contact me

You can reach me on my talk pages on the English, German or Spanish language Wikipedia projects. The equivalent here on Meta, however, is usually a good bet, too.
