    Hello, I'm Enkhsaikhan Shinegerel (Enkhsaihan2005) from the Mongolian segment of Wikipedia. I'm an active member of Mongolian and Buryat Wikipedia. My activity mostly lies on the technical aspect of these Wikipedia (creating new templates, editing and renovating old ones, creating modules for templates, and so on) to make these projects more standardized and friendly to new users. I'm still learning new things and made some mistakes. Last year I used sockpuppets which is a very serious crime in Wikipedia. I learned my lessons and won't be creating any sock accounts ever again. I have a decent knowledge of foreign languages. My native language is Mongolian. I have a C1 level of English, so I can freely interact in English. Also, I have a very high knowledge of Russian, because I have been learning the Russian language for almost 13 years. In addition, I have some knowledge of Chinese and German languages. So I believe I will be able to reach many people. This is my first time as a candidate in Steward Elections. I promise I will not be biased and will be just in making decisions. Thank you all!

Klein Muçi edit

    Hello! I'm Klein Muçi and I'm a crat coming from SqWiki where I've been an active member since 2013. My online activity mostly deals with so-called "tech-stuff" like extensions, tools, modules, bot approval, system messages, edit filters and interface changes in regard to projects standardization and new-user friendly optimization. Offline I'm active as a wiki-tutor in my country where I help new users learn the basics of the WikiWorld and not-so-new users tackle different tech-problems they may encounter. It is usually through these workshops where most of the aforementioned interface changes originate. Outside of SqWiki, I'm mostly active in MediaWiki/WikiTech/Phabricator/ToolForge tech-spaces where I try to help (and learn!) as much as I can. Because of this I believe I recently got invited at the Wikimedia Hackathon 2023 as one of the "top Gerrit contributors in the Wikimedia area in 2022" but I would say that most of my patches through that time were actually typo fixes instead of code working per se so take that notice with a grain of salt. I'm also active occasionally in SWViewer. When I'm not dealing with any particular project, I find checking the stream for vandalisms while listening to music can be a pretty relaxing activity to pass time. (Actually going through the 2022 talk archives of SWViewer you'll see that I've been a tiny bit involved in some of its technical features too.) Other privileges I currently hold maybe worth of mentioning are admin and interface admin at SqWiki, admin at SqQuote and translator admin and campaign editor at Commons. I've also applied as a volunteer on the back-then-called-OTRS on 2022 but apparently there weren't any help requests coming from Albanian speaking people at the time so there wasn't too much I could do subsequently and was put on hold indefinitely. I can interact in English and Albanian in a native level and I believe to be decent enough in Italian too. I've also been studying Latin for quite some years now (usus est magister optimus) but I doubt that will be of interest in steward duties. This is the third time in a row (and maybe the last) I take part in the Stewards Elections. You can find my old statements in here and here. I've been involved with Wikimedia for 10 years now and I believe I've gained from it as much as I've given it back. I've enjoyed this relationship and I've tried to help wherever I can. This is a continuation of that relationship.

Mykola7 edit

  • Languages: uk, ru-4, en-2, pl-1, de-1
  • Personal info: (English)
    Hello everyone! I'm Mykola and I'm editing Wikipedia since 2018. My home wiki is the Ukrainian Wikipedia. At the beginning of my activity, I contributed mainly to Ukrainian Wikipedia, but later I became interested in other Wikimedia projects and at the present time am active globally.

    In Ukrainian Wikipedia I am currently an administrator since April 2021 and checkuser since August 2021. I also served as administrator on Ukrainian Wikivoyage from January 2021 to July 2022. I am an administrator here on Meta-Wiki since May 2022. I am also a global renamer since September 2021, global rollbacker since March 2022 and global sysop since October 2022. Last year I served in the Ombuds Commission and my terms will expire in February 2023.

    I am active in the global fight against cross-wiki vandalism, spam and LTAs. I have frequently filed requests at SRG and have often contacted with stewards through other communication channels when quick action is needed. I usually work in the areas where the steward tools could help me much more in stopping cross-wiki vandalism, spam, and other abuse. If I am elected steward, I will also help at steward request pages, mostly at SRG, SRP, SRGP. I will also continue to process global rename requests, which I often do.

    My time zone is UTC+2 in winter time and UTC+3 in summer time, but I am available most of the day. I am a night owl and can be online both late at night and early in the morning. Often during the day, if at that time I am not at the computer, I am available from my smartphone, from which I also edit quite often, so I am equally comfortable. I get notified, so I will not have a problem when quick responses and actions are needed.

    Thank you for your attention.

Superpes15 edit

  • Personal info: (English)
    Hello everyone! I'm Superpes15, an itwiki sysop, and recently also a metawiki sysop. My activity in WMF projects mainly concerns areas of global interest. I'm indeed also a global renamer and a global sysop/rollbacker. Currently my activity is focused on fighting cross-wiki vandalism/LTA and spammers/spambots, but also assisting with service pages and with renaming. To be honest I don't like to show my flags like badges or to collect them, because I know they're only tools to be used and not certificates of merit, and I place them in this application only to make my experience known to the users who have never met me on wiki.

    Two years ago, in 2021, I had the honour of being part of the Ombuds Commission, a role I tried to carry out with the utmost seriousness and professionalism, and I hope that the users who have been part of it with me have had the same impression. We evaluated the applications of the CU/OS/Privacy/ANPD policies and this has given me experience with policies and CheckUser/Oversight tools. As a member of the OC I worked together with the rest of the team on several cases which also led, in some situations, to WMF actions. We have also resolved some internal issues and ensured that the 2022 commission could start working with few issues. What is publicly seen is only a small part of the work and I have personally dealt with several reports but obviously I cannot provide details of what has been done by a private commission. Unfortunately, during the second part of the term, some important and sudden commitments in RL slowed me down and didn't allow me to be at my best in that part of the year. On meta-wiki I have often translated into Italian, this has allowed me to learn about various policies over the years (including the Stewards policy), and to be able to apply them better and better. I'm also active on IRC in the various Wikimedia channels and you can find me on Discord too (which I only use to read and rarely to write).

    I also use VRTS since I've been a renamer (and currently also for Italian requests and permissions) and I really like answering tickets, because I believe that feeling human support, both in private and delicate matters, is the main thing for those who have a problem. Many requests come from inexperienced users and it's always nice to help those who are beginners. I like to always be transparent and clear diplomatically and politely, and I believe that this can often resolve many disputes, even if unfortunately it’s not always enough in some situations.

    So, in the end, I ask for the opportunity to join the steward team. I think the beauty of this role is that you can work both in a team and privately, discussions with others are very important, and knowing you can count on the opinion and help of other colleagues is essential. As a steward, I would mainly deal with all the areas I have already mentioned, cross-wiki vandalism and LTAs, spambots and open proxies and miscellaneous spam, fulfilling requests on SRG and continuing to do cross-wiki patrolling via IRC and SWViewer. I'd also be active on the meta-wiki request pages (SR(G)P, SRM, etc.) and I’d continue to rename and help small wikis that need it as I've done so far. I'd also help the team processing requests on the steward queue on VRTS. I'd be active for any urgent requests on IRC. In controversial issues, I’d intervene with my opinion, but, obviously, I’d never take a decision against the will of the community or contrary to policies and being a steward wouldn't make me express a more relevant or otherwise different opinion than what I would have as a non-steward user. I think that having served in the OC would make my job, when concerning CU/OS tools and privacy issues, easier. I also believe that being a steward requires flexibility and wisdom that I hope to acquire more and more in my life, also thanks to this experience, if the community will allow me to do it. The choice to apply was not easy at all, I thought about it carefully, and I feel the responsibility of the role, but I'm still ready to do my best. I’m always ready to ask for help, because I know everyone can learn more from others, and I believe that every person we meet leaves us something to learn from, so if I’m elected I'll ask other stewards for help when I have some doubts without acting hastily. My goal is not to have high numbers in statistics as soon as possible, but simply to help the community in my small way, with my work which I always try to do with consciousness and quality although, of course, I'm not perfect, I'll try to limit mistakes as much as possible.

    I’m always available for any questions, and I thank anyone who took 2 minutes of their time to read my (somewhat long) application. Best :)

Xaosflux edit

    Hello all, I'm User:Xaosflux. My home wiki is enwiki where I've been an admin since 2006, and am a current bureaucrat and oversighter. I am a bureaucrat, oversighter, and checkuser here on the Meta-Wiki. I am a member of VRT (mostly in info-en\tech-issues). I am a global abuse-filter maintainer. You may see me on phabricator frequently, where I try to bridge the gap between sometimes vague community reports and what the developers need to work on issues. If elected, I expect I'll continue to do maintenance functions such as updating local abuse-filters, interface pages, etc - on projects that don't have communities to do such. I have a long history of dealing with bureaucratic processes and will volunteer to help in more such as the periodic admin activity review. I also have a long history of working with bot governance, and will help at bot status requests. I am generally active on-wiki every day. Thank you for your consideration, — xaosflux Talk 01:17, 27 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]

    Hello, I'm a global sysop, rollbacker, renamer and an VRT member. Locally, I'm a sysop and bureaucrat in the Azerbaijani Wikipedia (and other Azerbaijani-language projects). My activity mostly revolves around combating cross-wiki vandalism and spam (mostly through Svwiever). Steward tools will help me in this, it will make my work become more effective. It will also make my tasks as a renamer easier. To note, yes, I've read the guidelines such as checkuser, oversight and have got acquainted with them. Thank you for your attention, sincerely.--Turkmen talk 18:19, 27 January 2023 (UTC)[reply]
