  • Personal info: Hi there. I am TBloemink and I'd like to be a candidate in the 2014 Steward Elections. I registered in 2009 but never got active. I really started editing in March 2010, and have been active ever since (with a few breaks). I became active on nl.wikipedia, where I became an administrator in November 2011. Later, started patrolling edits outside nlwiki. I already joined the SWMT and became global rollbacker in January 2012 (diff for transparity), and global sysop in February 2013(diff). Both these tools have been really helpful fighting crosswiki vandalism and doing other tasks like fighting spambots. I have asked the stewards' help for these to get these locked and IP's global blocked, checks done and such. I am also an administrator on Wikidata, where I help out with the requests for deletion. I love to help people around on IRC and on-wiki and therefore I am also a member of the e-mail response team for info-nl (otrs). I'd like to help the Wikimedia wiki's in every way I can and like, and I'd like to join the stewards' team so I can help out and protect these wiki's and their users even easier (for example, spambot and/or vandalism attacks and checkusers done), and of course continue to fight vandalism like I already did. I have read the policies, understand and respect these, and will abide by them. I can be found on various IRC channels like #wikipedia-nlconnect, #cvn-swconnect and #wikimedia-stewardsconnect and I can be reached by e-mail very easily and most time of the day. If in any doubt, I will ask another steward for assistance. Some people might note my activity: in my opinion I am active enough to do stuff without problems. If real-life problems which obstruct my work as a steward do come up, I will voluntarily step down, or leave a notice on my user page (in other words, I won't be gone without a notice). Also, because I still have classes, sometimes I am not able to edit, but am able to do requests like SRP and global (b)locks. If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them. Thank you very much for your time and consideration.
