  • Personal info: I've been editing Wikipedia (en) for almost 10 years, and have been an admin on en for most of that time. I'm less active now than I used to be, but I see I've made the top 10,000 list of Wikipedia editors, which I suppose is something. I use the encyclopedia on a daily basis; since I get so much value from it, I feel obligated to give back to the project. Serving as a steward seems like an interesting way to do that. Sadly, I am (mostly) monolingual. I can usually get the gist of what I'm reading in Spanish, but wouldn't consider my Spanish skills sufficient for working in the language. In real life, I hack code for Songza and occasionally write about topics that interest me on my personal blog. After re-considering the commitment of time this would involve, I have decided to withdraw my candidacy.
