- Personal info: (English)Hi everyone, I'm Riley and I have been editing for 8 years. My homewikis are Meta, where I am an sysop as of late, and Commons where I have been a sysop since 2016. As a SWMT member, my area of expertise and consistent activity is countervandalism. Currently, I use global rollback/global sysop permissions to fight vandalism, spam & long-term abuse. I am active on IRC which I view as a important communication tool for stewards to handle time-sensitive requests.
I speak English but am functional in French and Spanish. Through my time on Commons, I have become comfortable helping editors that speak many different languages as it is a diverse multi-lingual project. When I am not helping on Meta & smaller wikis, I can be found writing content on the English Wikipedia, helping out with autoblocked users/verifying permissions on OTRS and creating accounts with the Account Creations team. Working with OTRS & ACC has taught me the impacts of collateral damage from blocks and this has helped me develop sound judgement when placing blocks. Between my Commons and SWMT experience, I have a well-balanced perspective of the challenges both small and large projects face.
My primary focus as a steward, after finding an experienced mentor, would be to devote my time in the areas of greatest need and familiarity which I believe to be on IRC at #wikimedia-stewards (vandalism/LTAs), the stewards OTRS queue and steward noticeboards (global [b]lock requests, permissions, etc)
Admittedly, I have only recently been given the global sysop permissions, however, I view this as a bonus as it appears I will be the only global sysop running for steward this year. Note: now one other GS running this year. ~riley (talk) 09:05, 4 February 2020 (UTC)riley (talk) 06:31, 11 February 2020 (UTC)
