Hello! My name is El bes. My partizipation in Wikipedia started in 2006 (see here), and my home wiki is the small Bavarian Wikipedia, the dialect wikipedia for Austria and Old Bavaria, where I am also administrator (sysop). I'm also quite involved in the German language wikipedia, where I am more or less a heavy user and also author of more than 100 articles there. I'm also a little bit active at Commons, where I have uploaded some old archival material, but also some self shot photos, mostly buildings, etc. In other projects I'm only a reader, besides infrequent correction of interwiki-links. I often visit the en.wikipedia and sometimes the Spanish and Portuguese ones and also the Romanian one. Due to interesting information, that is to be found there, I sometimes also visit the Russian and the Hungarian wikipedia, although I do not understand the language and can read both unfortunately only with the help of online translation.

My interests and working fields are:

  • linguistics
  • history
  • politics
  • geography
