    Hello you,

    I am Taketa, a medical student from the Netherlands. I mostly write articles and add images to pages. I am a member of WM Netherlands and WM Belgium, visited Wikimania '11 and '12, and assist/coordinate offline wiki starter courses, GLAM cooperations and activities.

    My home project is the Dutch Wikipedia where I wrote my first article in February 2008. There I have been an administrator since December 2008, a bureaucrat since February 2010, and maintain the admin and bureaucrat mailing lists. I was a member of the Arbitration Committee in 2009/10 and 2012/13, became an OTRS volunteer in 2010 (info-nl, info-en, permission) and a Wikidata admin in June 2014. I was one of the first global renamers in September 2014, and mainly help at the English Wikipedia request page, which is still open for the moment.

    There are over 100 global renamers and stewards watching the rename request pages, mainly on meta. As such the global requests can be dealt with in a timely manner. In my experience however usurpation requests can, at times, take longer. The work is mainly done by only few stewards. I would like to help answer these usurpation requests as a steward. I used to handle usurpation requests as a bureaucrat, and have experience with renaming on the Dutch and English Wikipedia. With the upcoming SUL finalisation, and possible new functions to combine accounts, an extra hand will lessen the load. I would also like to assist with permission requests and eventually help in other steward duties.

    I speak Dutch, Limburgish and English, and understand German and French. I live in UTC+1 timezone, am online several times a day, and can be reached via email. I am only sporadically on IRC. I agree to abide by the policies governing steward access, checkuser access, oversight access, and privacy. Thank you for your consideration. Feel free to ask questions!

    Sincerely, Taketa (talk) 14:38, 19 January 2015 (UTC)[reply]
