    Hi all, I'm JJ. I have been a Wikimedian since 2015, a member of the Volunteer Response Team (VRT) since 2018, and an English Wikipedia (my home wiki) administrator since 2019. I also served as a member of the Ombuds commission since 2021 with my third term ending this year. I'm also an admin on MediaWiki wiki and Wikitech and a bot operator.

    As an Ombud, I evaluated alleged violations of the CheckUser policy, Oversight policy, and the Wikimedia Foundation Access to Nonpublic Personal Data Policy (ANPDP) across a number of our projects. Some of our cases lead to changes in local policies or practices to align them with the requirements in the global policies. We have also recommended changes to the global policies. In addition to my work as an Ombud, I handle non-public personal data while working on VRT tickets and processing account requests (ACC; since 2016 and tool admin since 2017). Also, I have been a CheckUser and suppressor (oversighter) on a non-Wikimedia MediaWiki since 2017. There, my primary use of CheckUser has been to combat spam bots, and my use of suppression has been limited to removing potentially libelous information.

    Most recently I have been active off wiki – UTRS, ACC, and rewriting the backend of CopyPatrol.

    As a Steward, I plan to work on Steward requests and UTRS appeals. I'm available on IRC and, if really necessary, Discord.
