    Dear all,

    My name is Nahid Sultan and I hail from Bangladesh. I’m a native Bengali speaker and I’m able to communicate in English as well. I’ve been an active Wikimedian for over three and half years now. I started with contributing to the English Wikipedia on 30 April 2012, then gradually became active on Bengali Wikipedia and Wikibooks, Wikimedia Commons, Meta and various small Wikimedia projects. I’m currently an administrator on Bengali Wikipedia (since December 2013), Wikimedia Commons (since May 2014), Meta (since January 2015) and a global sysop for small wikis since March, 2015. More recently, I've joined the Ombudsman commission and my terms will expire on February 2017. I’m fairly active on every projects I’m holding advance rights. I usually do clean up tasks on small wikis and am an active SWMT member since September 2014. I’m quite often present in multiple IRC channels including #cvn-sw, #wikimedia-gs, #wikimedia-admin & #wikimedia-stewards under the nick NahidSultan. I’m also an OTRS member since May, 2014. As of this moment I have made 56,692 edits on all Wikimedia wikis.

    Other than my online contributions to the movement, I am also active in doing Wikimedia works offline—working actively for Wikimedia Bangladesh chapter where I currently serve as a Board member. I’ve conducted a number of Wikipedia workshops in all of the seven divisional cities (I’m the first person to do so) and various educational institutions of Bangladesh. More recently, I have coordinated the Wikipedia 15 programs in Dhaka. That’s why my global online contributions may seem a bit low for the last couple of weeks.

    As a Steward, I would like to help with the Steward requests backlog. In particular I would like to work with SRP, SRG, SRM and SRCU and various other maintenance tasks from time to time. As a SWMT member I also want to access my steward privileges to fight cross-wiki vandals and spammers. To demonstrate my ability to work in a crucial timeframe, I would like to quote one of the former stewards (my colleague from Bengali community as well) as I also fall under similar condition, “My timezone is UTC+06:00, so I’m usually awake when most of the stewards are in sleep. ;)” My stewardship would also provide an effective linkup between small wikis and the global community, also increase the diversity of the team. I would like conclude my statement with my agreeness to respect stewards policy, and other policies such as CheckUser, oversight and privacy policies. Thank you very much for your time to read this and your consideration.
