    Hello everyone, my name is Hasley. I have been an editor on Wikimedia since late 2016, and signed up in 2017. I serve as an administrator and bureaucrat on the Spanish Wikipedia (simultaneously elected), CheckUser on Meta-Wiki as of late, administrator on the English Wikiversity and Wikidata, and as a global sysop. I am active on other projects, such as Wikimedia Commons, besides being a member of the SWMT since mid-2019.

    Globally, I routinely identify and deal with long-term abusers and spammers, and regularly make reports for global actions, mostly through IRC. I have got involved in other areas, working with local or global blacklists and abuse filters occasionally and collaborating to a variety of miscellaneous stuff, like keeping Wikimedia portals updated, and advising new users both on- and off-wiki. Through the contributions over the years I have been here, I am well-acquainted with the general procedures and policies governing the use of steward tools.

    I am grateful to those fellows who encouraged me to putting myself forward. As I have noticed that there is a significant amount of work in some of the steward venues, I have decided to step up to the plate further and outlined those areas where I intend to take part in, if elected:

    • Global blocks and locks. My main area of focus would be on dealing with cross-wiki abusers, which means helping out at SRG. I see that LTAs and spambots target various wikis frequently, which requires a global (b)lock/LWCU. As a steward, I could hammer them down quickly.
    • Global and local permissions. I would be active in granting user rights over at SRP/SRGP, based on established norms and MVR guidelines.
    • #wikimedia-stewardsconnect. I am usually up late into the night (American zones, up to 06–08 [UTC]), when reports tend to go unattended for hours. I am very active on IRC (under the nick mahler), and would be able to assist those requests there.
    • Other requests. Once I feel more confident with the steward toolkit, I will branch out into other areas, wherever it would be needed the most, such as more complex cases, and user renames. I expect to continue processing requests at GSR as well.

    Anywhere I may lack experience, I will approach it on the job, slowly and cautiously, looking forward to getting feedback from more knowledgeable users. That said, I believe that my participation across multiple projects, combined with the qualifications detailed above, gives me a good insight into the steward role, and would make me a positive addition to the team.

    Thank you for your time and consideration.
