Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship/RAYLEIGH22
RAYLEIGH22 (talk • email • contribs • • logs • global account)[edit source]
I request to retain Custodianship of Atlantis Location Hypothesis since I have done most of the work on it and I have recently tried to edit on Wikipedia and have had my edit deleted. In addition, I wish to apply for Curatorship or to just retain Dave Braunschweig as Curator of the site. I fear my research on this subject is not being well received or treated fairly. My posts that are based in science are being overpowered by posts/edits that are based in history.
Either we give a fair hearing to the emerging science regarding Atlantis in the Azores or we do not. It kind of reminds me of the war of the currents between Tesla and Edison. If is is a truce that you are looking for, then fine. We can have it. I will stay off of Wikipedia. But I want the manipulation and diversion to the Wikipedia site on the search engines to stop. People have a right to see other ideas in addition to the ones by historians when they use a search engine. These sources state unequivocally that they know the mind of Plato despite the fact that he has been dead for 2500 years and also that Plato's time frame suffered from a translation error.
I can get the same type of arguments from different religious denominations. None of them are based in science and in research. The research to contradict the newer science I am presenting was published in 1917. It is 100 years old.
This Atlantis thing is NOT a religious belief. It is writings by Plato that I am subjecting to scientific scrutiny.
I imagine the people who want control of the Atlantis Location Hypothesis Atlantis in the Azores both in Wikipedia and Wikiversity have vested research or perhaps other interests. My only interest is that of science. IT is instructive that I make this argument and posts so close to Earth Day. No matter what happens now eventually Science will prevail.
I am requesting Curatorship. I have asked Dave Braunschweig to be my mentor.
I reviewed this today. I understand the need to become active on other projects.
Based on Wikiversity:Curators, which curator tools are you specifically seeking to use, and how will this usage enhance Wikiversity overall? -- Dave Braunschweig (discuss • contribs) 23:06, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
I am requesting the use of no specific tools. I will need to learn to use the tools associated with this position of Curatorship and I will need to become skilled in their use.
I can be given assignments. Simple assignments at first, but increasing in importance and requiring increased knowledge. My goal would be to become a help to you and to whoever or whatever you may need to assign me to help.
If I am not successful in this request then perhaps we can take steps to eventually ensure my success.
Thank you, I appreciate all that everyone has done to help me in the past. I am retired now and I still have interests and knowledge that can benefit Wikiversity, perhaps drawing on my education and 48 years experience as a radiologic technologist. I am registered with the Americaqn Registery of Radiologic Technologists. (ARRT)
Thank you, everyone.
I have more time to devote now that I am retired.
Thanks for your prompt response,
Thanks to all for your prompt response today.
- Oppose Has little demonstrated familiarity with the practices and processes here. Has shown no desire to participate outside of a single page/topic. No clearly stated reason for how the tools would be used for the overall enhancement of en-wv. --mikeu talk 15:39, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
- Oppose the user does not seem to appreciate the difference between being an editor and holding a position that gives access to administrative tools. I also agree with the comments of mikeu above. Scott Thomson (Faendalimas) talk 20:43, 12 November 2019 (UTC)
- Oppose I haven't seen this user edit past his own topic of Atlantis. —Atcovi (Talk - Contribs) 14:01, 13 November 2019 (UTC)
