    Hey, I'm Sammy, but you likely know me as TheresNoTime. I was previously a steward (2018 - 2020), and am standing for re-election after a break from Wikimedia projects for personal/mental health reasons.

    The sudden and unannounced break (and the concern it caused) is something I regret deeply - I believe as stewards we have a commitment to maintain a certain level of activity, and if re-elected I will ensure I devote the time needed to effectively contribute to the backlogs and assisting the global community.

    As I mentioned in my previous election statement, I am a checkuser and oversighter on my home wiki, the English Wikipedia. Since then, my proficiency in using these tools has increased tenfold. I was also a Meta administrator (RfA) during a portion of my stewardship, and used this access to maintain the spam blacklist and abuse filters.

    If re-elected, I can offer the steward team technical knowledge, previous experience with the tools, a familiarity with global policy and a good chunk of my free time. Not to mention my amazing jokes.

    As many kindly pointed out in my successful 2019 confirmation, I committed significant time to reducing SRG's backlog and being responsive on IRC - my work schedule for the foreseeable future lends itself to maintaining, if not increasing, this level of activity.

    Re-reading my 2020 confirmation, for which I was absent from Wikimedia projects and understandably did not pass, is somewhat emotional - I appreciate and understand the impact my contributions have, and wish to again step up and give back to the community.

    I hope you can support me based on my previous work, my current activity and my future commitment to the projects. Thank you.
