Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship/Draicone
This is an archive of community discussion related to the nomination for full custodianship of User:Draicone.
I would like to help out in a greater capacity at Wikiversity. I am a well known vandal fighter on the engilsh wikipedia - my user page there is w:User:Draicone. I have clearance for user of both VandalProof and VandalSniper, am assisting in the development of a vandal fighting tool for Wikimedia projects and would like to help co-ordinate efforts at vandal fighting here. I am familiar with sysop tools, especially after managing the now defunct MWT wiki as a bureaucrat, and have over 2500 edits on the engilsh wikipedia. I am familiar with policy establishment there, participate in the wikipedia-l and wikien-l mailing lists, have set up wikiprojects and proposed reforms. --Draicone (talk) 12:39, 13 September 2006 (UTC)
- I suppose I should clarify my involvement at Wikiversity. As some of you may have noticed, I'm a professional php developer and would like to establish a decent php learning system on Wikiversity, among other things; and I would like to help assist with establishment of foundations for Wikiversity, such as proposing guidelines, creating boilerplates, simplifying policy for new users and working on schools (naturally, school of computer science comes to mind). I personally feel Wikiversity has great potential, and with the help of a dedicated community, can achieve a well deserved place in a person's course university education. I feel I should be granted sysop/custodian privelages as I am familiar with the nature of sysop actions and can devote time to handling everything from representation issues to janitorial tasks (some en:wp users are familiar with my spending an hour staring a lupin's anti-vandal tool, spellchecking articles with AWB, developing MWT and adding my opinion to the wikipedia-l and wikien-l mailing lists all at once). --Draicone (talk) 11:38, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
To the candidate: Please indicate who you will accept for your mentorship
- I will accept any custodian, however I would prefer JWSchmidt, as I have met him previously.
I will mentor Draicone. --JWSchmidt 01:11, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
- I am more than happy to be mentored by JWSchmidt. --Draicone (talk) 21:28, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
- Mentor: JWSchmidt (Talk) –
- I nominate Draicone for full custodianship. Draicone has been a probationary custodian since September 26, 2006. Draicone has helped transfer of Wikiversity content from Wikibooks to Wikiversity (see), protect Wikiversity from vandalism and delete pages that were not needed. His efforts for Wikiversity have been facilitated by Draicone's participation at IRC freenode #wikiversity-en, Wikiversity:Colloquium and Wikiversity:Import. After having served the community during the probationary period, Draicone should be confirmed by the Wikiversity community as a custodian. --JWSchmidt 19:20, 26 October 2006 (UTC)
- Support -- I mostly see his approach on IRC, where he's always looking for solutions to problems that need solutions. --SB_Johnny | talk 12:26, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
- Support - Draicone's been doing great work on Wikiversity. Cormaggio 15:56, 27 October 2006 (UTC)
