Hello, I am Malnadach Konkno (ISO 15919: malnāḍāc koṅkṇo, IPA: [məlnɑːɖɑːtʃ koŋkɳo]). I am a Konkani Kannadiga from Karnataka, India.

I rarely make content contributions to English Wikipedia. Most of my activity here consists of gnomery and various maintenance tasks. I sometimes visit any WMF wiki and clean up Lint errors there.
