Kirkburn on the ropes at Go Ape

Hello, I'm Kirkburn, aka George!

As a community support team member, and previously a product manager, I'm here to help you if you have any issues on Wikia.

Please feel free to ask me questions on my Community Central message wall!

Who are you?

I'm a resident Brit, who spends his time listening to ELO and Justice, pretending he lives in Wee Britain, and seducing West Country villagers. I even dabble in warping the fabric of space-time, before saving the galaxy from the Reaper fleet.

In years gone by, I also created a popular addon for World of Warcraft called ClearFont.

If you so desire, you may also find me on Xbox Live and Steam.

Why "Kirkburn"?

The long version involves the 1990s, a gun-toting armchair historian, Star Wars, a harpoon and a very, very tall lift-shaft.

But the short answer is: I just thought it up one day.

I am not to be confused with a village, or with the finest Iron Age sword in Europe. Well, actually I'm okay with the latter.

Done anything interesting?

  • As a product manager, I helped work on the editing experience, blog posts, commenting, the photo and video tools, category galleries, user profile pages, the gallery creator, polls, and much more...
  • At SXSW 2008, I took part in a discussion panel regarding game wikis - report on
  • I have sometimes popped up at various Blizzard conventions, such as WWI 2008 and BlizzCon 2010.
