    Greetings and thank you for participating here. I'm Operator873. I created my acount in 2008, but was only an avid reader for many years. In 2017, I became active on the English Wikipedia. I worked mostly anti-vandalism in the beginning, but then became involved with OTRS (which I am no longer active) and ACC (with which I still serve). In June of 2018, I became active on the Simple English Wikipedia and grew to enjoy being active in global efforts. I consider the Simple English Wikipedia my home wiki. In November 2018, I stood for consideration as a sysop on the Simple English Wikipedia and was successful. In early 2020, I became a CheckUser with unanimous support.

    Globally, I work to detect and remove spam as well as the associated spambots. I am currently a Global sysop and use that tool kit in this effort. I very much enjoy working with the smaller communities and admire the dedication of those Wikipedians. I am very active on IRC. I develop Bot873 (known as GlobalSysBot on IRC) to assist the Global sysops. I use SWViewer as well as the CVN network to assist in monitoring the smaller communities. As a Steward, I would continue and expand my effort against spam, doing LWCU work, combat LTA activities (locks and gblocks), and serve the global community's requests. Like many other Stewards, I would make myself immediately available for assistance via IRC as needed.

    Thank you kindly for your consideration! Operator873talkconnect 22:05, 19 January 2021 (UTC)[reply]
