Marios Magioladitis
Administrator in Greek Wikipedia; Bot owner

About me

I am Mathematician with M.Sc. in the Foundations of Informatics and MA in Special Education. I participate in the Wikimedia movement because I believe that access to knowledge should be free for everyone.

My work

I was highly active English Wikipedia administrator for 9 years (2008-2017) with more than 10,000 admin actions and member of its bot approval group. I am currently administator in the Greek Wikipedia and I have contributions in many Wikipedias. I am considered as one of the most active editors, with more than 1,000,000 edits, and bot operators. Currently, I am member of Wikimedia Community User Group Greece and I am engaged in outreach activities. My main interests are Wikipedia's Gender Gap, Wikipedia Education Program, Photo competitions and Hackathons. In addition, I contribute as programmer and software tester.

In brief


I mostly work on English Wikipedia, but have also been quite active on Greek Wikipedia. I've been editing since 2005. I am an administrator on both English (2008-2017) and Greek (since 2015) Wikipedias. I'm also a bot owner and was member of the Bot Approval Group on English Wikipedia the period 2014-2017.

I am one of the developers of the open source Wikipedia-specialised editing tool AutoWikiBrowser (AWB).
