    Hi everyone, I'm Stryn from Finland. My home wiki is the Finnish Wikipedia where I started contributing actively in October 2009. There I have been an administrator since January 2011 and member of the Arbitration Committee since October 2013. During my first years on Wikimedia I contributed mainly on Finnish Wikipedia, but later I became interested also of other Wikimedia projects and nowadays I'm active globally.

    I became an administrator on Wikidata in November 2012. There I was also an oversighter between September 2013 and June 2014. In September 2014 I became an administrator here, on Meta-Wiki. I am also a global sysop (from April 2014) and I have an access to few OTRS queues (fiwiki-info and wikidata). In 2014 I was about 5 months member of the Ombudsman commission.

    I have been active member of SWMT where I have patrolled vandalism since January 2013. I decided to nominate myself for stewardship to be able to stop cross-wiki vandals and spambots. Though I try to help also in other steward duties as much as I can.

    I speak Finnish as my native language, but I can also understand English pretty well, though long discussions may take more my time. I know Swedish basics, but long discussions using that language are not possible for me. I live in UTC+2 timezone. I am available most of the day either by email or onwiki. On IRC I'm always online when I'm on my computer.

    I am aware of the policies regarding usage of CheckUser and Oversight tools as well the stewards policy. Thank you for considering and don't hesitate to ask questions.
