You do not need to be an educator to edit. You only need to be bold to contribute and to experiment with the sandbox or your userpage. See you around Wikiversity! --Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 02:04, 15 May 2019 (UTC)


I've added you to the Wikiversity:Curators group. You are welcome to delete pages when appropriate as part of your clean-up efforts. Thanks for helping support Wikiversity! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:59, 20 October 2019 (UTC)

@Dave Braunschweig: thanks so much, but are you sure? I have less than 200 edits here --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 01:01, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
Quality over quantity, and you are well-trusted on other projects. Note: Curator mostly adds delete rights. It's not Custodian / Admin status. That requires community approval. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 01:05, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
I see that - I think the rollback will be the most handy; I'm a bit leery of using delete if I cannot revert myself if I make a mistake, since curators don't have undelete rights (which, per WMF legal, require community approval). --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 01:08, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
@Dave Braunschweig: what exactly does the phrase "Undo all revisions. Resource is empty, but not deleted" mean - that it should be deleted? That it shouldn't be deleted? That after a certain amount of time it can be deleted? Thanks, --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 08:39, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
That phrase means the last editor removed all content. If the editor was the original (and only) author, we can speedy-delete the page as author request. If there are other authors, it may be vandalism to be reverted, or it may require further discussion. There have also been some rare occasions where authors have returned years later and tried to blank all of their contributions. That wasn't well-received. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:07, 20 October 2019 (UTC)
Is there some cutoff (a month? three?) after which the page should be deleted? --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 04:37, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
It depends on the circumstances. Wikiversity:SPEEDY allows for immediate deletion. There is also {{Prod}}, which allows for a 90 day deletion. Sometimes, replacing the content with a redirect or an {{Advise}} is more appropriate. Advise entries are typically deleted by bot after 30 days. I try for a balance between common sense and Wikiversity:Please do not bite the newcomers. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:41, 24 October 2019 (UTC)

My talk page[edit]

Please stop edit warring on it, and please unprotect it. I've asked you on simplewiki, and on IRC, not to edit war with LTAs, which, as I had mentioned, do absolutely nothing but violate WP:DENY, increase your edit count, and spam the subject with notifications. I am not the only person who has asked you this. Stop. Vermont (discusscontribs) 23:39, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

My intention was not to edit war, but to block the user after my first revert. I hadn't realized that curators couldn't block. The page has already been unprotected. Sorry --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 00:13, 3 November 2019 (UTC)
You made three reverts. Regards, Vermont (discusscontribs) 00:28, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

Managerial Economics[edit]

FYI, Managerial Economics is a real-world, large scale course project being created by upper-division students. They are expected to edit each other's content as they add their own. Please follow up with User:Nonto19 and see if it's possible to re-integrate the reverted content[1]. It's a very dynamic page this weekend, with an apparent due date coming. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 14:42, 3 November 2019 (UTC)

@Dave Braunschweig: thanks for the note. Will do --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 15:34, 3 November 2019 (UTC)


Welcome as custodian![2] Please update WV:staff when you get a chance. You can add as little or as much info as you are comfortable with. --mikeu talk 02:24, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

@Mu301: thanks --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 02:49, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

Comments on CU[edit]

Hi Danny, @Dave Braunschweig: and @Mikeu:,

It is not appropriate for me to comment directly on a vote I am involved in. However, I think your proposal is reasonable. I said at the outset that people with large cross-wiki experience and certainly checkusers and stewards would see this and may comment or vote. Their opposes are not directed at either @Koavf: or myself, but more against whether or not EN Wikiversity has the demonstrated need for these tools to be extended to it. At this point I am not sure much will change on this. So letting it go a little while longer seems reasonable, but a stop has to be done at some point soon. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 23:45, 6 January 2020 (UTC)

@Faendalimas: glad to know that I have your support if I close it. --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 23:54, 6 January 2020 (UTC)
We need to have 25-30 votes in support. We're not even half way there yet. We can leave it open a bit longer, but I don't think it will change anything. Perhaps another time. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 00:03, 7 January 2020 (UTC)
We didn't quite get to the thesrshold though we came close. I'd like to thank everyone for offering to help Wikiversity. --mikeu talk 02:04, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

added interface administrator[edit]

I've added interface administrator. Please update. --mikeu talk 01:35, 6 February 2020 (UTC) 01:30, 6 February 2020 (UTC)

@Mu301: thanks. I have commented at Wikiversity:Notices for custodians#Temporary interface adminship requested (once more) regarding an issue I ran into. --DannyS712 (discusscontribs) 06:38, 6 February 2020 (UTC)
