My name is Gabriel Pollard and I live in New Zealand. I am a 17-year-old male and I add content to Wikipedia (My Wikipedia talk page) and Wikinews which interests me. I am the reason for the controversy surrounding Wikinews and the amount of New Zealand articles. The articles I do write can mostly be found on the Wikinews New Zealand portal so keep a eye out for them. And please remember that when you are awake, I am asleep cause you are behind in the timesĀ ;).
