|Anonymität im Internet ist eine Illusion.|
Janwo = Dr. Jan Wohlgemuth
You can call me Jan, JanWo, or Doctor Wo; my preferred pronoun set: he/him/his.
Out of principle I do not have sock puppet accounts and I generally never make anonymous edits.
My Wiki history
I registered at :de:wp on 8 December 2005. Prior to that, I always refused invitations to contribute by friends and colleagues, saying that I wouldn't want to be part of something so untrustworthy. But then my mentor convinced me to co-teach a seminar involving MediaWiki Software. This led to the creation of Linguipedia, in which I held bureaucrat status. I am still editor-in-chief and administrator of its successor project Glottopedia. For a few years, I also ran the Wiki for a German online community (wiki.Jappy.com).
I am mostly active on Meta and on de:wp, id:wp and en:wp. Since September 2020, I am a member of the Language Committee.
