Hi, I'm new to Wikiversity. But, I've been doing a lot of social media. I can contribute to the PR role for Wikiversity, school news, news, updates, to-do lists, proposals, social media esp. Twitter feeds. Some newsworthy and notable ideas will take a lot of review and discussion to get to publication, but many more are just 'low-hanging fruit' easy for social media people to mention.
I'll happily review the role of social media in the university and education industry. Furthermore, I'll review the standard of publication expected from Wiki media-sources. During the probationary period I can slow the process down to give a mentor an oversight on my direction. I believe a custodian role would achieve the correct level of access to complete these tasks.
Wikiversity the scratchpad for the future of university education!
Hi Brett - Your ideas and initiatives are very welcome. We'd love help and want to encourage new custodians. Although there is no edit count per se requirements for probationary custodianship, it would be helpful I think to have a longer editing history on en.wv and/or outline previous admin experience on wikis and WMF sister projects.

I concur with Jtneill. You need either or both experience on another WMF wiki like Wikipedia (especially one in which you are an administrator/sysop) or a high edit count on this wiki. Not yet, though early content work is encouraging.--Jasper Deng (talk) 14:55, 25 September 2012 (UTC)
I also agree that someone with ability and enthusiasm should be encouraged, but I cannot see why you need the extra abilities that being a custodian gives you. Do you see any need to block vandals, for example?--Collingwood (talk) 12:07, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
I agreed with the first, second, and third comment. I was mainly interested in delivering on initiatives requiring clearance, such as Twitter. I realize the custodians full duties requires a lot of experience and study. I'm in agreement that I don't have all the insight that is required. Brett Johnston (talk) 13:06, 28 September 2012 (UTC)
Which means that I have rejected this request for custodianship. --~~Goldenburg111 22:02, 30 March 2014 (UTC)
