Hello, I am Joan Francés Blanc, an Occitan with Czech and Romanian roots as well, living in France, working in French and sometimes in English, Spanish, Slovak, Occitan. As a citizen of a quite democratic country (even under constant police and NSA scrutiny), I find no interest in acting anonymously on the mediawiki projects.
I am a sysop and a bureaucrat at Occitan Wikipedia (over 30,800 edits since 2005), and a contributor to other projects as well (mostly: French, Czech, Kikongo wikipedias, with a global edit count over 55,000).
Feel free to contact me, there is no dumb question, no silly remark, no stupid point. Any interaction brings knowledge to both parts.
