    Hello everyone, I'm Martin Urbanec and I'm editing Wikipedia since 2014. I'm a Czech Wikipedia administrator since 2015 and bureaucrat since 2016. Since December 2017, I also serve as a Czech Wikipedia checkuser, and I was an arbitrator since November 2016 to February 2019, when my mandate expired. Outside of Czech Wikipedia, I'm a global renamer and Meta Administrator since 2019. I'm also a Wikimedia system administrator since May 2019 (see my Phabricator account). During my work in CU/sysadmin roles, I have learnt how to deal with sensitive information.

    Especially during recent time, I notice that stewards are less responsibleresponsive at the #wikimedia-stewards IRC channel, and I would be happy to provide my hands to help the movement. I would be also happy to help the steward's team with my technical knowledge, by helping to maintain the steward's tools. I'm also happy to help with work that needs to be done, which doesn't necessarily have to be the work I would like to do.

    Thank you for your time and consideration, and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have, --Martin Urbanec (talk) 08:31, 15 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

    Full Disclosure: I work for / provide services for the Wikimedia Foundation link to WMF userpage, but I do not think that my status as Foundation staff conflicts with the stewards position, as my role as a staff member is communicating with Czech Wikipedia community, my homewiki under stewards policy.
