    Hello everyone,

    I'm Wiki13. I'm a native Dutch speaker, but also can contribute in English when needed. Furthermore I can read a bit of French and German. Unfortunately I am not able to have an conversation in those two languages.

    I created my account back in 2009 on the Dutch Wikipedia. Four yours later I became administrator there. Not long after that a colleague administrator introduced me to way smaller wiki's at which point I decided I wanted to help them out in any way I can. To do this work more efficiently I am a global rollbacker. Also, to note, I have been global sysop twice. Also I helped with Wikidata when it started, being in the first batch of administrators. I resigned voluntarily from that position after some time.

    In terms of the global work I do: I'm mostly busy patrolling small wikis for vandalism and/or spam as part of SWMT. This also includes the occasional LTAs (Long term abuse) I come across. As a steward, I would like to help in several areas like blocking/locking spambots/spammers/LTAs/vandals, user rights, etc (basically any steward request page where I think I can help people). I'm almost daily on IRC too, and if elected, I would plan to also help out with requests made from that medium.

    If there are any questions you have, don't hesitate to ask me! I'll be happy to answer them. Thanks for your time and consideration. With kind regards, Wiki13 talk 22:55, 26 January 2018 (UTC)[reply]
