 It is my pleasure to introduce our newest Wikimedia Community Fellow of
 2012, Peter Coombe. As a fellow, Pete will be working with the community to
 improve help documentation on English Wikipedia. He’ll be leading a 6 month
 effort and taking a data-driven approach to reorganize and rewrite key help
 pages in order to make them more usable for new and experienced editors
 alike.

 Pete comes to the fellowships program with an impressive resume. He’s been
 editing English Wikipedia as The wub since 2005, he’s an admin with over
 75,000 global edits, and an active member of Wikimedia UK. Pete volunteered
 on the Social Media Team in the 2010 Fundraiser, and worked as a Production
 Coordinator in 2011. He’s got a B.A. and M.Sci. with honors in Natural
 Sciences from the University of Cambridge, and much experience breaking down
 complex topics into clear written information. He’s participated twice in a
 program at Cambridge to create online teaching and learning modules on
 advanced materials science and engineering topics. He’s also worked at The
 Helpful Book Company, publishing books that teach senior citizens how to use
 computers.

 Pete’s talent for making the complex seem simple, combined with his
 experience A/B testing in the fundraiser and 7 years editing Wikipedia, make
 him a great fit for his fellowship project. To follow his work or get
 involved in the redesign project, please visit his project page.  More info
 about Pete and his project are also on the WMF blog.  Welcome, Pete!
