    I'm Einsbor from Warsaw, Poland. I had begun contributing to Wikimedia projects in 2012, became more active in 2013. My contributions are focused in general on recent changes patrolling, fighting vandalism and long-term abuse, mostly on plwiki, but I also help in global countervandalism work. I am an admin, oversighter, member of local ArbCom at plwiki and OTRS member. Because I still feel that with my skills and knowledge I can do more for Wikimedia projects, I decided to apply for stewardship.

    Due to the fact that I have relatively little cross-wiki vandalism and spam fighting experience, if elected, I want to help mostly with oversight, checkuser, permissions requests and LTA fighting. On plwiki we have a problem with an LTA user - Wikinger. Due to his abusive activity (including libelous contribs) a few Polish providers had been banned globally (a few times) by a former Polish steward, a lot of open proxies have been banned. Now I give work for stewards - if elected, I will be able to do it by myself.

    I live, as I wrote before, in Warsaw (CET), but due to the character of my occupation, I'm active at various times - night, early morning, evenings - depends on the shift. While online, I'm reachable at #wikimedia-stewards, #cvn-wp-pl, #cvn-sw, #wikipedia-pl channels. I speak Polish as my native language, English at a decent level and basic French. I have read, understand and fully accept steward, oversight, checkuser and privacy policy.

    In nonwiki reality, I am an automation engineer.
