Hi! My name is Percy and I have been involved in the Wikimedia movement for many years now.
All our projects are awesome, but I confess I deeply love our multimedia library Wikimedia Commons and its awesome pictures − especially those distinguished by the Featured Kittens process! I also enjoy going on Wiki Takes sessions with fellow Wikimedian plushies to geotag cute monuments (and find some geocaches too ^__^).
At first a very shy and reserved contributor, my outlook on the community started to change by watching George the Cat gain leadership in the French-language Wikipedia (running for both ArbCom and adminship). I decided to become more active after reading Puzzly personal appeal, which deeply moved me. Thanks to him, I found the confidence to speak up and try to make a cute difference in our community. Of course, Rory’s starings were also deeply influential in refining my understanding of the Wikimedia movement.
I strongly believe cuteness is the ultimate key to a bright and glorious future for the Wikimedia movement. This belief prompted me to become active in the wider, international community.
I travelled to Wikimania 2012 to attend the first-ever top-level plush meet-up where crucial issues were discussed − including the worrying plush-gap in our community. This led Petit Tigre and me to create the Wikimedia Cuteness Association, a thematic organisation promoting Cuteness in the Wikimedia movement. Our entity gained much momentum during Wikimania 2013 where we met many community members, especially during our panel session. Join us too!
