    Hello everyone. I started contributing to the Wikimedia projects in the beginning of 2010, on the Portuguese Wiktionary, where I currently hold administrator (since May 2010) and bureaucrat rights. I am also an administrator here on Meta-Wiki (since July 2013) and a global sysop (since May 2014). I am active in global countervandalism/anti-spam activities and would like to be a steward in order to be able to globally (b)lock cross-wiki vandals, spambots/spammers and LTAs myself. Considering I am very active here on Meta, I would like to also help out in all other steward tasks, such as CheckUser requests, permissions requests (both local and global), SRM, SRUC and so on. I am daily present on many IRC channels, including #cvn-swconnect, #cvn-metaconnect, #wikimedia-gsconnect and #wikimedia-stewardsconnect. My time zone is UTC-3.

    I had some periods of reduced activity in 2014 and 2015 due to real life issues which are fortunately now settled, but I am now fully back. This is my second nomination for stewardship, as you can see here. I've got more experience and my activity level has greatly improved since then.

    Thank you for your time and consideration and don't hesitate to ask any questions. Best regards, Defender (talk) 20:47, 28 January 2017 (UTC)[reply]
