accredited reporter. And as of February 2006 I was created an Admin, and in 2007 I became a Bureaucrat -- please feel free to if I can assist you in some way!
I was created an arbitrator on January 31, 2007. Please read about the Wikinews Arbitration Committee for more information about the final step in dispute resolution.
The reason why I work on Wikinews is because I love doing it. I love writing News, I love the community over here, when ever I get sick of wikipedia, I can always retreat here. To paraphrase Messedrocker: Wikinews has the ability to be an important project, and I love it very much. Because of how everything is arranged and set up, while the Wikinews brand may not last forever, the fruit of its efforts will.
I advocate freedom of expressing beliefs and affiliations on userpages, only if we know our prejudices and biases can we work towards NPOV.

On En, I'm an Admin. I have accounts in many other Wikipedias. Other than the Maori Wikipedia (where I am a admin), I am not likely to contribute heavily to any of those. However, I normally check many RC feeds daily, to watch for vandels etc.
I have an account at Meta I contribute things to the Wikinews pages, OTRS pages and some minor vandalism control.
