    Hi everyone, I'm Bencemac! I'm bureaucrat of the Hungarian Wikipedia since 2017 and administrator of Wikidata since 2018. I am also OTRS agent since 2016 and global renamer since 2018. I'm from Hungary and if I'm correct, I'm the first candidate from there.

    I'm applying for stewardship to accomplish the following few goals. First of all, I'd like to add Hungarian to the language list. I'd like to help those who can reach stewards only in my native language. Secondly, I would like to help in (I think) less popular sides. For example, as far as I know, the backlog of steward OTRS queue is sometimes big. As a steward, I'd like to help answering these mails in order to reduce the work. Since I'm an OTRS agent, I have dealt with thousand tickets and I think I'm experienced in many aspects of OTRS; general questions, permissions, legal complaints and sensitive information too.

    My focus would be also SRGP because I feel confident enough and experienced because of my years as a bureaucrat. My help would be expected with SRUC requests as well. Currently, I deal with local rename requests only from huwiki, because originally, I applied for GR to help my single huwiki colleague, but I'm willing to help there too. I deal (mainly from Wikidata's RfD process) with cross-wiki spam and pages created by LTA accounts. As a steward, it'd be much easier, and I also would be a useful hand cleaning after globally (b)locked accounts. I use IRC when I'm online and I am willing to do help there as well.

    Thanks for reading my statement! If you have any questions, feel free to ask them, I'll do my best to answer them.
