I am dendodge (real name George Watson), a user from England. My wiki career began over at the English Wikipedia, and I was introduced to Wikinews in late 2008 through my involvement with Wikivoices.

I have been active on Wikinews since 17 October 2008, and I was a Wikinews administrator between 7 November 2009 and my temporary retirement in late 2011. I gained community accrediation (verify) on the 20th of the same month. My accreditation details can be found below. I was elected to the Arbitration Committee in the July 2011 election. My term expired in August 2012, although I'd already left the project by that point anyway.

I officially came back in January 2013, and I'll probably do more stuff again at some point.

I maintain a personal website at, as well as a blog of a totally random nature.
