    Hello, my name is Adrian and I go by User:Ajraddatz on Wikimedia projects. I have been a Wikimedian since 2009, working with the Small Wiki Monitoring Team since 2010 and on Wikidata since it was founded in 2012. Most of my wiki work has focused on cross-wiki counter-vandalism and various activities on Wikidata. I hold advanced permissions on Wikidata (administrator since 2012, oversighter since 2013) and on Meta (administrator since 2014, CheckUser since 2016). I previously served as a steward from 2014 to 2020, when I stepped down to serve two terms on the Ombuds Commission. After taking a period of reduced activity following that appointment, I have been back to more regular activity since last fall and am interested in helping out as a steward again. I have extensive experience both with the steward toolset itself and with the CheckUser and oversight tools, have signed the confidentiality agreement and use two-factor authentication to keep my account secure.

    My primary area of steward work, as it was during my previous tenure, would be focused on global counter-vandalism and responding to the backlogs on SRG and the unblock ticket request system, as well as on permissions changes and policy development.

    In terms of availability, I have less time than I used to for wiki work but will still be able to commit to ~10 hours per week and would expect to land in the middle to upper range of stewards by activity. I am active on Discord (English et français) and am around during the UTC 0100-0400 time period which is often underserved. I am also active on IRC when home under the username ajraddatz. I am responsive to messages that people leave me on my talk page or send me via email as soon as I am able.

    In terms of steward philosophy, I believe in empowering local communities and processes. I am always happy to discuss an action I have taken and am always open to reconsidering my approach, something that I think is essential for any holder of advanced permissions.

    Thank you for your consideration! Please ask any questions you may have.
