Karsten Hoffmeyer

From semantic-mediawiki.org

My name is Karsten Hoffmeyer aka Kghbln and I am very much into wikis, especially into the MediaWiki wiki engine which allows for using Semantic MediaWiki. The first version of Semantic MediaWiki I actively used was Semantic MediaWiki 1.4.3Released on 15 August 2009 and compatible with MW 1.13.x - 1.16.x..

I am one of the most active editors on MediaWiki.org and the most active editor on this very wiki Semantic-MediaWiki.org from where you most probably know me best. I joined it on February 2, 2010 as user 74.

I also help translating the system messages for MediaWiki, Semantic MediaWiki and extensions at TranslateWiki.net where I also do translations for other free and Open-Source software projects. I am also active on WikiIndex.org and on WikiAPIary.com. In the Free Software Directory I see to it, that the listings of MediaWiki and Semantic MediaWiki are up-to-date.

In October 2015 I commenced to provide MediaWikiWidgets.org for the community as well as until March 2019 Semantic MediaWiki - Sandbox. In July 2016 the MediaWiki Foreground Skin and in March 2017 the MediaWiki Pivot Skin demo wiki followed.

In December 2015 I took over administering Semantic-MediaWiki.org and in March 2019 Semantic MediaWiki - Sandbox.

Apart from that I am co-owning Professional.Wiki a MediaWiki hosting and consultancy company as well as running WikiHoster.net a MediaWiki hosting company. I have also developed eiKoLo a database tool for charities.
