- My name is Paul Williams, and I have been contributing to the Wikimedia wikis since the 8th of August 2005, when I "slightly expanded" the English Wikipedia article "Internet Relay Chat admin". From then I have gone on to contribute to a number of different wikis, and on the 23rd of June 2006, I made the English Wikinews my new home project.
- I am 23 years of age, and come from Essex, England. I graduated with a BA in Technical Theatre from East 15 Acting School, part of the University of Essex, in July 2013.

- Please use the appropriate talk page for the nature of the question (Wikinews questions on my Wikinews talk page, for instance). If you do not know where to go, please start the conversation here on Meta. I will reply as follows:
- If a user indicates they want responses in a certain place in their message, that takes priority.
- If no indication is made, I will use any signature link to a talk page.
- If there is no signature link, I will use the local project's talk page.
- You can also contact me on IRC - I frequent many #wiki* channels as well as #defocus and #freenode - just go ahead and PM me if you need anything!
