of Wikipedia Administration
I could write a lot about Wikipedia and how much I love contributing to it, but this quickie is all about me. On the 10th, I received an email from another Wikipedian with whom I’ve collaborated in the past; she offered to nominate me to receive “Administrator” rights and privileges.
Just being offered the nomination means a lot to me, and tells me that I’m (a) making a difference, and (b) appreciated. Mmmm, so good. I gave myself some time to stew over it, and just replied with my declination.
I really enjoy editing Wikipedia, but much like working on computers, I don’t want to make “my fun” into “my work”, and I’m afraid that that anchor around my neck is more responsibility than fits into my fun. Does that make sense?
