Custodian[edit]

Congratulations! You are now a Wikiversity custodian. I'm sure you're familiar with the tools. Please add yourself to Wikiversity:Staff and regularly monitor Wikiversity:Request custodian action and Wikiversity:Notices for custodians. Let us know whenever you have any questions. Thanks! -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 13:46, 2 November 2019 (UTC)

Thank you for moving the discussion of Location Hypotheses of Atlantis. When, where and how may I start with moving the Location Hypotheses of Atlantis out of Draft? thanks again!

Faendalimas,

Congratulations on your achieving custodian status. I look forward to working with you!

thankless job[edit]

Helping to develop policy is often a tedious and underappreciated effot. I would like to thank you for your work on the CU policy and encourage you to continue these helpful contributions to our project. We greatly appreciate your efforts to improve our site and we want you to know that we value the thought and care that you have demonstrated in our community discussions. Congratulations on your recent custodianship! I'm confident that your participation will improve wikiversity. --mikeu talk 06:52, 4 November 2019 (UTC)

Thankyou its all cool, it is pretty much the same everywhere. How long do you wish to leave this policy up? It seems to have been accepted. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 06:56, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Usually I would close a discussion like this as SNOW as it is obvious that there is very strong support and little chance of substantive objection. Given that CU is a more serious consideration than most routine proposals that we discuss I'd like to leave it open for a little longer than we typically would. This is merely to ensure that the process is not rushed and to provide time for infrequent contributors to participate, should they choose. --mikeu talk 07:24, 4 November 2019 (UTC)
Two weeks is generally a good amount of time for such proposals. This would be about 7 November to hit that point, it could go a little longer though. I would suggest that if you plan on seeing if we can get local checkusers it may be worth applying for those as soon as the policy is in place, while its fresh. Yourself and Dave are going to need to mass mail the members, carefully of course, however if Justin and I apply as some seem to want us to we cannot be involved in that as it would be seen as canvassing. Do not be surpised if some Stewards and Global Sysops cast votes in a vote like that. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 07:28, 4 November 2019 (UTC)


I must change this for ALL of you. A sincere thank you to everyone who is working to make Wikiversity possible. May this site provide a research home for all of those who need one and may the research create breakthroughs and advancement in many subjects that would not have been possible without Wikiversity.

Thank you all once again!

  • I closed the CU discussion because the rate of new comments had slowed down considerably. It didn't look like we'd reached the criteria in a reasonable amount of time. Thank you again for working on the policy. That framework will be important as the community grows. Perhaps we'll reach a threshold where participation in these discussions is sufficient to reach the requirements. --mikeu talk 19:41, 29 January 2020 (UTC)
    • Yes @Mu301: perfectly reasonable to close at this point. I am not worried about it. You have a policy in place now thats the important thing. Local CU´s can wait for now. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 14:57, 1 February 2020 (UTC)

Wikiversity:Requests for CheckUser[edit]

Please review: Wikiversity:Requests for CheckUser. Do you have any suggestions for adding instructions to this page? Not that we need to anytime soon, as it will likely take quite a bit of time before we need it. --mikeu talk 05:38, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

@Mu301: yeah there is quite a bit needed in that page, it works better if its a form. This is the Wikispecies one here it has to explain the various definitions etc we use for everyone. I will put it together if we end up needing it if you like. I figured it would be easier to determine if we will have local checkusers first. Cheers Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 06:29, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
Yes, I'd wait until there are about a dozen or so supports. Also, I archived the old page to the talk. --mikeu talk 21:17, 27 November 2019 (UTC)
