My user name is Vsuarezp and my real name is Víctor Suárez Piñero. I contribute as an administrator and corrector in Asturian Wikipedia, where I started editing in September 2006, I have created more than 4.200 articles and I have done more than 25.000 editions. Additionally, my total number of editions is 32.149 in 30 Wikimedia projects. Since 2014 I’m also a member of Wikimedia Spain. In these 10 years I have done a constant work to make grow Asturian Wikipedia by welcoming and mentoring new users and taking care, alongside other fellow administrators, of maintenance and awareness tasks for our project. I have also tried to get as much pages and warning messages as possible from different projects translated in Asturian to make it available for our community. I did take part in online activities, like contests, having a relevant role in Catalan Culture Challenge; Peace Treaties edith-a-thon 30x30, and a winner in WikiLovesOlympics.
