Candidate for Bureaucratship

Has been instrumental in moving Wikiversity through the Wikimedia hoops. Cormaggio 17:05, 19 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]

I accept this nomination on the condition that I be formally voted in by the members of the Wikiversity community. With 194 registered users and 9 administrators (after less than one week, no less), I don't see the need for an emergency Bureaucrat at the moment. We will need a few bureaucrats to help with the single log-in feature for Wikimedia projects that appears to be coming, as there may be a need to help rename some accounts. That shouldn't be too much of a problem, however, and I don't anticipate that taking too much time.
In addtion, I believe that the 5 day discussion period is slightly small and from experience with other small Wikimedia projects like Wikibooks and Wikisource, we may want to have even more time to discuss the merits of people becoming a custodian or bureaucrat. Still, this is an honor to be nominated. When I got involved with the Wikiversity VfD (on Wikibooks) a little more than a year ago, I had no idea I would be doing what I'm doing today. --Robert Horning 23:04, 19 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Symbol support vote.svg Pro Robert has been exemplary at wikibooks and in pushing policy formation uphill for all new Wikimedia Foundation projects with quietly expressed skill and grace. Based upon my observations over a year and a half exclusive cabals are much less likely to form in any group where he participates. Mirwin 04:58, 21 August 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Mirwin, Can you provide links to examples of those policy issues?--Hillgentleman|User talk:hillgentleman 08:33, 20 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]

Symbol oppose vote.svg Contra I've got to agree with RichMac. Give me some edits to change my mind! If he would get back here and start work on that IRC algebra course, it could become be the most successful part of wikiversity. --Rayc 06:43, 2 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]
Symbol support vote.svg Pro This sort of inactivity does not hurt the Wiki. If anything, we need someone familiar with Wikiversity's beginnings. I don't expect super-wikiactivity, but rather consistency in acting and carrying out community norms. Robert has that ability. Full support. --HappyCamper 03:48, 8 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]
As no consensus has been reached, I've archived this candidacy. sebmol ? 16:13, 26 November 2006 (UTC)[reply]
