  • Personal info: Hello, my name is Techman224, and have been editing since May 2007. I started out on the English Wikipedia, where I first got introduced to counter-vandalism, and where I first got rollback. In late 2008 I started to get involved in CVN and SWMT. As time went on, I started to get involved in other projects. In February 2012 I became an administrator on Wikimedia Commons, and in early January 2013, I became an administrator on Wikidata. This brings me experience with multilingual projects. I also have done various other activities. I'm also an OTRS agent, working mostly in permissions. I have done some work with the Mediawiki software and even done a few commits in Gerrit. I also help deal with bugs on Bugzilla when I encounter one. If I become a steward I could help with cross wiki vandalism and spamming, which I currently report on Meta and in the #wikimedia-stewardsconnect channel. Being able to globally block cross wiki spammers and vandals would help me greatly. I'm also comfortable with the Abuse Filter, which will come in handy when Global Abuse Filters are enabled on more wikis. I use it on both Commons and Wikidata, and it would help greatly against spambots. I also hang out on IRC, so I would be able to help with requests from there as well. I'm also open to doing other steward activities like Permissions and doing some Checkuser queries. I agree to follow all relevant policies that come with the tools, and I will be submitting my identification before the deadline. Thank you, Techman224Talk 18:40, 20 January 2014 (UTC)
    Withdraw: I withdraw my nomination. It looks like my nomination will not succeed. It's time to move on to other things. I'll be back. Techman224Talk 02:07, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
