    Like most other stewards, my activity and availability has been affected by the pandemic. I would still like to help out where I can, as there is plenty of maintenance work and improvements we can make to improve processes and tools used to protect projects from LTAs.
    Separate from the pandemic, I have been a bit discouraged by the lack of response from the Foundation to address a language/translation issue which would greatly improve accessibility for those who don't speak English so they can understand why they cannot edit a page or why they are blocked, and the necessary steps to get an exemption etc. if necessary.
    Despite there being 11 Wikimedia Foundation staff on the Language and Translation team, no substantive action has been taken on this task since October 2020, nor the closely related task filed in January 2020. Should this still be a problem next year I can say with near certainty that I would not stand for re-confirmation on the basis that the Foundation does not adequately listen to or support the communities which produce and maintain the integrity all of the content that make the WMF relevant.
