Hi! I'm evkl,
Bulbagarden's operations manager and an Editor-in-Chief Emeritus of Bulbapedia.
My name is Evan, but I go by evkl online, all lowercase
. My birthday is January 17, and I'm 22 years old, currently attending college in New York State. I'm a native of the [[wp:Philadelphia, Pennsylvania|Philadelphia]] area ([[wp:Pennsylvania|Pennsylvania]] side of the river). I've been working on Bulbagarden since Archaic took over in December of 2002, first working on the forums and later serving as the first Editor-in-Chief of Bulbapedia. I was the head of the Forums from 2006-ish until January of 2011, when I became Chief of Staff of Bulbagarden.
On other personal notes, I think knowledge is very important. I also think music is very important. Those two aren't really related at all, I'm just saying. On the knowledge front, I think Bulbapedia is a very good thing, as a specialized repository for knowledge that otherwise wouldn't be aggregated anywhere else. And learning in general is really good, and you should do your homework before you make edits on 'Pedia. On the music front, if you're talking to me, expect an away message or signature or something involving an obscure reference to music or lyrics. Or maybe not-so-obscure. [[wp:Katy Perry|Katy Perry]] is cool with me. Music is complex and relaxing--and we're missing both in our lives a lot.
