  • Personal info: Hi All, I am Shanmugam from Tamil Nadu, India. I registered as a user in 2009 and became an active contributor in 2011. I mainly contribute to Tamil Wikipedia where I am an administrator, as well as on mediawiki.org, where most of my contributions are related to countervandalism activities. I also occasionally edit Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata and the English language Wikipedia. Also on the English language Wikipedia, most of my contributions are related to countervandalism work. In early 2012, I've joined the SWMT and started countervandalism work across all Wikimedia wikis. After a year, in January 2013, I became a global sysop which helps me a lot with this kind of global countervandalism work. Unfortunately, there aren't many active stewards online in my time zone, so I've decided to nominate myself for stewardship this year. On IRC, I'm mostly available in channels like #cvn-swconnect, #wikimedia-stewardsconnect or #wikimedia-gsconnect, which would also allow me to handle emergency requests there if elected. As a steward, I plan to focus mainly on global countervandalism work (including global blocks or locks), as that falls in my current field of activity anyway. Furthermore, I could also imagine to handle user right requests. If I get elected as steward, I agree to abide by the different policies that governs the usage of steward tools. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Thank you for your consideration. Regards, Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:02, 16 January 2014 (UTC)[reply]
