  • Personal info: I started editing the Dutch Wikipedia back in 2006. Later I became active on MetaWiki and the Wikimedia Incubator, primarily to help the creation of new language versions, which has given me experience with small language communities. Consequently I became a member of the Language Committee. To help me with cross-wiki tasks, I became a global sysop in 2011. I have also been an active MediaWiki developer, primarily for internationalisation of the software, for which I have been active on translatewiki.net as well. I have also been active on projects like the English Wikipedia, English Wiktionary, … Nowadays I am also active on Wikidata (where I am an administrator). I was reluctant to run for steward because I have not been as active lately on Meta-related tasks and issues as I would like to be, but fellow Wikimedians convinced me to submit my candidacy anyway because of my experience in the Wikimedia projects. I think this makes sense; it is more important that others can trust a steward and are sure that he will use the tools wisely regardless of the level of activity. I hope others feel so about me; and in any case I plan to become more active again from now on. I will help with handling steward requests where possible, as well as be available on the IRC channel for help. I agree to abide by the policies governing steward access, checkuser access, oversight access, and privacy. Thank you for your consideration.
