    Hi, I'm Pmlineditor, an editor in Wikimedia wikis since 2008 and I wish to nominate myself to serve as a steward. I registered my account in the English Wikipedia on 3 December 2008 and started contributing there. Soon, I moved to Simple English Wikipedia (and other Simple English projects), where I became an admin on 12 September 2009. I have edited in multiple wikis in the last 6-7 years, including English Wikiquote, Wikinews and the Simple English projects. I have recently started contributing to the Bengali projects, particularly Wiktionary & Wikisource as well.

    Currently, I am an admin and a bureaucrat in the Simple English Wikipedia, and an admin on Meta-Wiki, English Wikiquote & Simple English Wiktionary. I have been a more or less active member of SWMT from 2010, and have global rollback (since September 2009) and global sysop (2010-2014 and from 2014 October - now) rights to help in crosswiki antivandalism and anti-spam efforts (please refer to this page for more details). I am also a global renamer since September 2014.

    If elected as a steward, I will primarily handle global locks and blocks for crosswiki vandals and spammers. As a global renamer, I can only perform SUL renames, but if elected as a steward, I can handle usurpation requests as well. With SUL finalization approaching, I expect there will be an influx of local & global rename requests, which I can help handling. I also expect to handle Steward requests made in Meta-Wiki if elected, particularly those at SRGP, SRG & SRP.

    I am a native speaker of Bengali and can fluently read and write English. I have an average understanding of Hindi and can read and more or less understand some languages written in the Bengali alphabet. I have basic knowledge of German as well.

    I am active on several IRC channels, including #cvn-sw, #wikimedia-stewards, #wikimedia-rename and #wikimedia-gs when I am online (even if I'm not editing), therefore I can take care of requests if contacted there. My timezone is UTC+5:30 (Indian Standard Time).

    I have read and will follow the Checkuser, Oversight and Stewards policy and other policies related to Steward tools. Thanks for your time and consideration!
