Re: Welcome new contributors and Introduce Yourself!

Hi! I'm David Weir or satdav. I am a contributor, a reviewer of knowledgebase articles and has contributed with Mozilla since 2009. I got started by using the Firefox browser because of it's pledge to be "open". Something interesting about myself is that I am over 6 foot high. Oh, and did I mention I reside in the UK?

Hi, I am ashickurnoor, IRC ashickur-noor. I am a KB localizer and a awesome contributor of AoA Smiley Happy . I do KB localization because majority of our local people don't know English well. Even most of the people are living on the rural area. So KB localization helps them to solve there problems. Thats why I started SuMo. To help my local people. I am lazy person, it is the most interesting thing about me for last few year Smiley Tongue . Time zone: UTC + 6:00, Dhaka, Bangladesh.

ashickurnoor, I don't think we've "met" before -- appreciate your presentation! Interesting to learn more about the English language limitation where you live. It really makes your work localizing support into Bangla so important.

feer56, satdav: thanks for continuing to be awesome. Oh, and satdav, I'm 194cm tall. Do I win? Smiley Wink

I'm from Middletown NJ USA and I contribute to the Knowledge Base and support forum, both here and at MozillaZine, as you can see from my profile page. I've been at SUMO from the beginning (I'm user 11!) . I got started at SUMO by helping to migrate the MozillaZine KB to SUMO.
