Hi, I'm Stryn, a Wikimedist from Finland. I registered to my first Wikimedia project, the Finnish Wikipedia on 6th October, 2006 at 20.54.
I've been contributing actively since 2009. During my first years I wrote mostly new articles and contributed content to Wikipedia. Later I've been doing more other things, like translating newsletters, help pages and interface messages in Finnish; and anything related to technics as much as I have knowledge; and of course counter vandalism.
I spend most of my time on Meta-Wiki and the Finnish Wikipedia, Wikidata comes as third. These three projects I count as my "home wikis", after all I have advanced user rights in all of these wikis.
About user rights and activities
On the Finnish Wikipedia I'm an administrator (January 2011–) and a CheckUser (May 2015–). I was a member of the Finnish Arbitration Committee between October 2013 and September 2017. (user page)
On Meta-Wiki I'm an administrator (September 2014–).
On Wikidata I'm an administrator (November 2012–). I was an oversighter between September 2013 and June 2014.
I'm a steward of Wikimedia wikis (March 2015–) (before it I was a global sysop and a global rollbacker). I was a member of the Ombuds commission between February and June 2014.
I work as OTRS-volunteer. I am also member of the Small Wiki Monitoring Team and I translate interface messages on Translatewiki and other messages on Meta as a tech ambassador.
I have attended some edithathons and other events in Finland led by Wikimedia Suomi. In 2016 I was in Wikimania in Italy and in 2019 in Sweden. I'm interested mostly about sports, music, technology and travelling. On IRC you can find me on libera.chat where I am under cloak user/stryn.
You can contact me by leaving a message on my talk page on Meta.
Countries where I have visited
Finland (Q33) • I live here
2019 (Wikimania in Stockholm)
I got a Wikipedia mug for my help in translation work :)
I was confirmed for the next term in the stewards' confirmations.
On 23 March I attended in the Finnish Game Museum's Edit history wikiproject, which was held in Tampere at the art collection centre in Rusko.
In March I applied for scholarship on Wikimania 2019 in Stockholm and I passed the first round. However in the second round my application was not good enough and I was only in the waitlist to receive a scholarship. Later I applied for Wikimedia Suomi's scholarship and I got it from them and I attended in Wikimania in August. I wrote about it to my blog in Finnish.
In October I was helping Wikimedia Finland in the first preliminary round of Wiki Loves Monuments 2019 to review photos using the Montage tool.
11 December I participated in Wikiprojekti:Tampereen teollisuus wikiproject in Vapriikki museum in Tampere.
