    Hi everyone, I'm Yahya, a sysop of four Wikimedia projects, including Wikidata and bnwiki. I joined Wikipedia in 2017 and started with Bengali Wikipedia, my home wiki. Later, I expanded my contributions to other projects globally. I also have the global renamer and rollbacker rights. Now, I am offering myself as a steward for the next term.

    I'm an active member of SWMT and I help fight cross-wiki vandalism and spam. I also patrol small wikis and assist local communities with technical issues. I work as a Steward Clerk and help reduce the backlog of global proxy blocks. I'm also part of the English Wikipedia Account Creation Team. Through these roles: I have learned how to handle range blocks, proxy blocks, vandalism, and LTAs. I have been working as a VRT member for a long time. As a steward, I will focus on handling appeals related to global range blocks and global locks (through VRT/UTRS), as well as dealing with cross-wiki vandalism and LTAs. Of course, I will also help with other tasks like SRG, SRGP and SRP. I'm always eager to learn new things and I will communicate with other stewards if I have any doubts.

    One of the current stewards encouraged me to run for this election and I thought, why not, I'm passionate about serving the broader Wikimedia community and I believe access to some extra buttons will give me this opportunity :). I live in the UTC+6 time zone, typically editing Wikipedia most days and available most of the day for emergency contacts through IRC (nick: Yahya) and Discord. Feel free to ask any questions. Best regards.
