I'm Mz7, and I am a volunteer editor at Wikipedia. I made my first edits to Wikipedia in 2008 as an anonymous user. I created an account in March 2010, but I really only started actively editing in late 2011. Most of my work here is behind-the-scenes:
I'm an instructor for the Counter-Vandalism Unit Academy, which is a training program designed to help newcomers learn how to correctly identify and effectively respond to vandalism on Wikipedia.
Every now and then, I create and develop articles. See here for a list of pages I've created, and below for a list of pages I have significantly contributed to. I have three DYK credits, listed at the bottom of my user page.
Recently, I joined the account creation team, where I help create accounts for people who can't do it by themselves. When I joined in January 2019, there was a backlog of nearly 2500 requests extending back 2 months.
I help write the monthly administrators' newsletter, which aims to keep administrators up-to-date on various goings-on affecting administrators, such as changes to policies and guidelines and changes to who has access to the administrator toolset.
*opens up visor* Hey there. *removes helmet* Sorry, I need to wear this thick, heavy suit for protection when the vandals start attacking us. Anyways, thanks for your barnstar! I am usually on every day, but today I was particularly driven to stay on as ClueBot NG was down earlier. It's down a lot recently, don't you think? School got in the way, but as soon as I had some Internet access that was fast enough, I was fighting vandalism using Twinkle, Huggle, and STiki. Now that the bot is back up, I can hopefully get out of this suit. *unzips zipper* Anyways, I think I'll repay a barnstar with a barnstar, so here it is! Have a great day! ...now if you can give me a hand with this heavy suit... K6ka (talk | contribs) 21:55, 3 March 2014 (UTC)
Thank you for your work at AfD. Tricky NACs are just part of the learning process. We need more fair-minded editors such as yourself working the queues and attempting the tricky NAC stuff. See you around! Always consensus over procedure, – czar 05:59, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your over month-long contributions in planning the 5 millionth article celebration, which included writing one of the two initial letters to the community and handling the copyright issues regarding the logo change. Thank you for your help! Spirit of Eagle (talk) 17:20, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for assisting in stopping a persistent disruptive editor by implementing a range block. Evaluating the situation and discussing the best response is often an important process for admins. Also, thank you for making yourself available on IRC and ready to step in. Mkdwtalk 22:35, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
For ensuring that the Administrators' Newsletter gets written and distributed every month. Despite a good start I worried that the newsletter would ultimately die out after a few months, so it's heartening to see it still being sent out every month :) Sam Walton (talk) 23:17, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
