What hasn’t Delltechie done to enhance the WikiAnswers community in the less-than-a-year he’s been a contributor? Let’s see… He’s made it to Platinum Contributor status with over 200,000 contributions. Dell has worked his way up to Floating Supervisor and Mentor while taking on the tasks of WikiGuide and Site Guardian. Above all that, he’s behind a WikiAnswers Fan community on Ning.
So it comes as no shock that Dell has his own WikiAnswers work station from where he “eats, sleeps and dreams WikiAnswers.”
In addition, Dell’s a trustworthy fellow; after all, he was a recent recipient of ‘Most Trust Points’ WAmmy Award (for the record, that’s 2,384 trust points… for now…). Which is music to our ears, since he’s worked as – literally – a Dell techie over the years and helped plenty of people with their computer troubles, on WikiAnswers and off. He’s even got friendly advice to offer from his bio page.
Here are some more reasons to trust Delltechie, in his own words:
How did you originally hear about WikiAnswers?
I was looking for some information on a certain spyware and found WikiAnswers. But i found the answers blank. So I started on an answering blitz of 1500 answers on the first day.
Explain your .
Delltechie is made up to two words: ‘Dell’ as in Dell Corp, where i used work as Dell tech support. ‘Techie’ is what all Dell tech support staff are called, as they are chosen from the best of the best. In my training course there were 50 trainees and at the end of the month’s training there were eight left and only three hit the floor. Hence the name Delltechie.
What motivates you to volunteer your time to the WikiAnswers community?
I like the people on the site. And as I have been helping online for many years at sites like allexperts.com, answers.yahoo.com and askmehelpdesk.com, helping comes as a second nature. And I truly believe you are remembered for the help you give others and not for the amount of money you make. Thanks to nice people – like Brave3 – who keep me updated on issues, that is what truly motivates me to keep helping on WikiAnswers.
What are your areas of expertise?
I usually help out with the Computer Viruses questions. I also am a Site Guardian, scanning the site for vandalism.
What is your favorite WikiAnswers feature?
The Community Forum, as this is where everyone from around the world can meet and share ideas.
What has been the funniest question you’ve seen or your funniest experience on WikiAnswers?
Share a random fact (or two) about yourself.
I’m a certified fitness instructor, scuba diver, trekker, and The Alchemist follower.
