Hello there! I'm Ed Erhart. I've been a volunteer editor on Wikipedia since March 2006 and a site-wide administrator since September 2009. In the past, I have been the editor-in-chief of the Signpost, a Wikimedia movement-focused newspaper, and a coordinator of the Military History Project.

Aside from these responsibilities, much of my time on Wikipedia has been spent writing. I have concentrated on early-twentieth-century warships with a particular interest in the South American dreadnought race that gripped Argentina, Brazil, and Chile from 1907 to 1914. I have helped write twenty-eight featured articles, a quality marker awarded to "the best articles Wikipedia has to offer". Most have furthered the goals of Operation Majestic Titan, a long-term collaborative project that will see all battleship and battlecruiser articles rewritten and combined into a single featured topic.

When not contributing to Wikipedia as a volunteer, I work with the Wikimedia Foundation's Communications department. My staff account is located at Ed Erhart (WMF). Edits, statements, or other contributions made from my volunteer account (this one) are mine alone and do not reflect the views of the Wikimedia Foundation; I have plenty of views that are separate from those of the organization. Any accidental cross-pollination between the two accounts, such as forgetting to log out, etc., will be swiftly corrected.
