    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)[reply]

    Thank you for your consideration, I hope you can place your trust in me. ~riley (talk) 08:34, 23 January 2020 (UTC)[reply]

    Disclosure: I recently returned to activity after having life altering events over the years that restricted my ability to edit. These life events are long behind me and my activity has been incredibly strong since then. I am committed to maintaining my activity and hope you will give me the chance to prove I will be an active steward. ~riley (talk) 06:31, 11 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

    Reaffirming support. For MF-W issue, I am one of those who seen through the admin handbook and think that it has potential to be a guideline for admins. The GS experience is a little unfortunate and not all stewards are GS before elections. I think should they not raised this up in the nomination will be better. Overall, I don't see them as a jerk and meets my stewards criterion quite well.--Camouflaged Mirage (talk) 16:18, 21 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
  12. Jianhui67 (Eligible, checked by Stryn)2020   When this candidature popped up, I somewhat expected opposition about their activity and tenure. The candidate has sufficient experience in crosswiki affairs, and most importantly, they have good understanding of global policies and steward affairs. Their answers to questions reflect their competence and understanding of policies. I believe the advantages outweigh the disadvantages. Hence, I'm supportive of their promotion.

  64. Masumrezarock100 (Eligible, checked by Tks4Fish)2020   I am afraid I will never understand why some people are citing the assignment date of GS rights as a reason for opposing. Having GS is a proof of trust and experience. I am pretty sure there are some people with just GR applying for Stewardship this year. Would you have preferred if he applied for Stewardship without having GS right? As for inactivity concerns, we all have real life and I don't think anyone should be as active as if Wikimedia is like real life to them. I would rather have more stewards working together instead of having a handful of active ones. This can prevent wearing them out. He has been active enough over the past few months, so I don't see that as a reason for oppose. At the start of the next year, he can always be stripped off his rights after the confirmation process if the community thinks he has been inactive enough to have his rights removed. As for this, we all make mistakes. See what is good about him instead of assuming the worst. He has proven that he can learn and improve himself. He has plenty of existing Stewards near him who can mentor him and show him around. So I see no reason to hung up about that. Masum Reza📞 22:24, 10 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]

  17. MF-Warburg (Eligible, checked by Stryn)2020   First of all, I want to say I remember you from years ago and if my memory serves me well, you are a very decent person. However, speaking of "years ago", I was very surprised to see - from Rschen's links - that you have been active mainly for some months in 2013, then for some months in 2016, and then only really started again in November last year. I was even more surprised that you glossed over this in his candidature statement. Instead, we read "I view it as a bonus that I will be the only global sysop running for steward this year" when apparently, it was only on the same day that you became a GS. That in itself is nothing bad, but phrasing it this way in the statement? I don't like it too much. What also caused me to oppose was the strange fact that you asked questions to the other candidates - I think candidates should be better not do that - and then also said you would only answer these himself if someone specifically asked you. Also, what happened recently with the "meta admin handbook" is very strange to me: not only did you write an admin handbook only a short time after becoming an admin, but you also immediately proposed it as a guideline, which was (IMHO rightly) opposed for being too bureaucratic. Then, ending on a minor issue, there was even more bureaucraticness about it on Meta:Babel (and two sections above there) which just leaves me with a bit of an uneasy feeling about how you might handle steward requests - I fear both too "bureaucratically" and also with language that is sometimes difficult to understand. MF-W 23:36, 10 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
    Hi MF-W: I will adjust my statement; my focus was looking forward rather than backwards. Yes, I recently returned to activity in October of last year. I have had some life altering events over the last few years and edited when I had the access to. These are long behind me and my activity has been strong since then. At the time I applied for GS, I was not planning to run for steward and submitted questions. I was approached by a steward to take the chance to run, so I changed my mind. It was recommended I wait until my GS request was over, so I waited until then and submitted my application. My statement was not intended to to imply GS experience, I clarified this in one of my answers. Yes, I wrote an admin handbook; I am able to pull from my experience as an admin elsewhere and had it reviewed by other admins as well. As any author can be, I was biased to the positive reception I received from other admins and so I began the process of gaining community consensus and notified the community on Meta:Babel. The instructions to discuss on the handbook's talk page were not followed, so there was two ongoing discussions. I realized my biasedness through the consensus comments and I immediately withdrew the proposal. Mistake made, lesson learned.
    If you take the time to look through the many of steward requests I have been involved in or ask any of the stewards that have supported me above, I think any cause for concern regarding bureacratics will be eased. I hope you'll see that the pros outweight the cons and give me the chance to demonstrate this. ~riley (talk) 06:17, 11 February 2020 (UTC)[reply]
