    Hello, I'm Stanglavine, from Brazil. My home wiki is Portuguese Wikipedia, but I am also active on Wikidata and sometimes in Commons. Wikimedian since 2014, I was away between 2016-2017, returning in 2017's last quarter and staying active until now (except for a couple of months in early 2020). I speak Portuguese natively, but I can read English and Spanish fine, although my writing is not perfect.

    I'm a sysop, bureaucrat and checkuser in ptwiki and sysop in Wikidata. In these projects, I work in many areas (SPI, processing requests, etc). Globally, I assist small wikis by tracking vandalism, spam, and long-term abusers. As a global sysop, I routinely block spambots, spam-only accounts and vandals, while removing their edits. Sometimes local actions are enough, but in many times (maybe most of them) they move elsewhere, and global blocks/locks are needed. Due to my work, I constantly make requests for stewards, some onwiki and others on IRC (quick requests).

    As a steward, I will be able to work more efficiently (as an example, loginwiki checkuser is very useful with spambots) and I will help with the steward requests backlog. Working together and with my experience as a GS, CU today and oversighter and global renamer in the past, I know many of the routines and procedures of steward's work. When online (~15:00-03:00 UTC), I'm always on IRC and intend to help with quick or urgent requests.

    I'm happy to answer any questions and thank you for appreciation. Regards, Rafael (stanglavine) msg 22:46, 15 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
