I would like to request administrator status on the wikiversity project. I plan to be a major contributor to the site. My credentials are as follows : I have a degree from the University of London in Computer Engineering (1st Class Honours) and am about to commence a PhD which involves assisting Undergraduates and marking coursework. I therefore will be able to assist in most Engineering and Technical subjects as I have actually done or doing the courses. Oliver 11:49, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

  • Comment - I would like to say that I appreciate your enthusiasm and would like to thank you for applying for adminship here. I would also like to point out that there is much you can do simply as a "registered user" here where your contributions will be taken seriously. The primary purposes of "adminship" is mainly a protection of the project against those who would do harm. Significant tools available for those with "sysop" status include user blocking, page protection, and page deletion/undeletion, all of which are mainly to stop those who would try to "vandalize" this project and add content that is decidedly inappropriate. Those individuals currently with this "privilege" are mainly those who have been involved with Wikiversity for some time and have been known among the organizers of Wikiversity. With one exception, everybody has also been an admin on other projects and brings considerable experience from the other Wikimedia projects to here as well. That said, becoming an admin is not supposed to be a big deal. --Robert Horning 13:46, 18 August 2006 (UTC)

Hi :) I request Custodianship on Wikiversity. I have been on English Wikipedia for quite a while, and have around 1,500 edits. I have my own wiki that I mess with and test things on, so I am familiar with the tools. I have Vandalproof and Rollback priv's on english wp, so I am trustworthy. I would be happy to be under the full watch of a mentor or two, and am happy to learn new things. I would mainly watch Recent Changes, New pages etc for vandalism; and would protect pages and temp block users where necessary. Thankyou. --Deon555 03:54, 20 August 2006 (UTC)

I think I should be an admin because I am admin and founder of The Beatles Wiki, and the Your Pets wiki, on Wikia. I think I am elligible because I spend lots of time online, and love helping.Jimmy Ambo 14:47, 17 November 2006 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • Comment: "Dealing justice" isn't what custodianship is about - or, even if it unfortunately turns out that way, it should not be someone's intention in becoming one. It sets an immediately bad tone, in my opinion. Perhaps you have other motivations/desires that would be more appropriate? Cormaggio 14:13, 9 November 2006 (UTC)

I am requesting a mentorship for custodianship. I want to help with many of the custodian related tasks here on Wikiversity, as there aren't a whole lot here now, and I think I could be of help. Just to be clear, I do realize there is much I can help with without having sysop access, but I'm very familiar with the way MediaWiki works, and as such, this is my main interest here. Although I am not a sysop on any Wikimedia projects (yet), I have about 2800 edits on Wikipedia, where I contribute ALL over the place (see my userpage here). I have been all around Wikimedia for a couple years now, and I have the utmost interest in helping it achieve its full potential. As far as MediaWiki goes, the reason I understand it well is that I have helped develop php code for my own wikis and have taken the role of sysop/bureaucrat on a few others. Since I am requesting a mentorship for custodianship, I think that if chosen to be mentored, you will see the amount that I have to offer. Thank you for the opportunity, and I hope there is a mentor willing to accept me. Alex43223 Talk | Contribs | E-mail 04:54, 27 January 2007 (UTC)

Student Galaxy[edit]

Hello, I am a very experienced editor at wikiversity and I have had up to 6 months experience, being here since November. In this time, I have been very involved in the community creating many pages, often welcoming new users, and helping cleaning up vandalism on many occassions. I think I could do with the admin tools here as I am careful in what I am doing and I often avoid breaking rules and rushing in without thinking. I like to have responsibles, and I know there is no fun in becoming a trusted member of the community, but I am sure I could manage it. Student Galaxy 21:02, 28 May 2007 (UTC)

Questions and dicussion[edit]

Special:Contributions/Student Galaxy frankly (in my opinion) does not indicate much "custodial" type of activity, but this should not exclude your nomination as a probationary custodian. My hope is that your editing activities will grow to include a bit more Wikiversity:Maintenance and get more "maturity" as an editor of learning resources. My intent is to encourage you to be patient and show some more diligence - not to discourage your nomination. Hang in there, Student Galaxy! -- CQ 21:41, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

Comment: I really hate to do this, but I'm afraid I must strongly oppose Student Galaxy's nomination for now. CQ is right on the money: hang out a bit more, and if you find you need the tools, you'll ceetainly have them. --SB_Johnny | talk 23:30, 29 May 2007 (UTC)

I request the "no big deal" of sysop status. I am a seasoned editor over at the English Wikipedia, and enjoy taking part in behind-the-scenes housekeeping tasks. Granted I'm brand-spanking new here (however I've done a fair bit of reading), but I would like to put the custodian buttons to good use in the running this wiki, and my mop would be used as a mop, not as an accompaniment to subject matter edits. I intend to help out with any tasks needing custodian action, especially things like setting up new initiatives and projects, as I have done on Wikipedia. I'm sure this excellent project would benefit from someone else's help - I won't hurt anyone :-) --Bennyboyz3000 17:07, 25 August 2007 (UTC)

Questions and discussion[edit]

  • Custodianship might be "no big deal", but you have to be able to attract a mentor. Generally this means that you have to show some devotion to editing at Wikiversity. --JWSchmidt 15:41, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi OpenSource lovers! I am here to kindly request the role of custodian... I have been using wiki-related services for about 5 years. I have at my disposal many papers that I have written from my research that have piled up. I haven't had the nerve to publish my papers until now. I hope Wikiversity will give me a chance.

I am always online, participating in various collaborative projects and I feel I want to be a part of what's going on at Wikiversity! I hope this plea of mine will be granted. Thank you. Vicmiclovich 11:06, 15 July 2008 (UTC)Victor

Hi Victor, Sounds like we could really do with you around here! Lots of possibilities. Custodianship I would think sounds very much within your grasp, but you would be well advised I think to plough ahead with editing, develop your user page, build your edit history, participate, create some learning resources, and start publishing your papers (we really need more of this!). And delve into Wikiversity, what it is, how it works, etc. This will help you to get to know the place while it gets to know you :). Then you would be well placed, I imagine, for custodianship. That could all happen quite fast, depending on you. We want custodians, but we are also wary of those who seek for fast 'status' without first some dedicated local apprenticeship. See Custodian and How to be a Wikimedia sysop for some more ideas. Also, feel free to discuss anything you like also at the Colloquium. Look forward to seeing you around. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 12:24, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
Oh, and when you want to nominate (or when someone nominates you) for Probationary Custodianship, it goes here: Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 12:32, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Mirwin (talk | email | contribs | stats)[edit]

I request adminship and sysop status. I was an early administrator on English Wikipedia[[w:User:Mirwin][[[w:User:Lazyquasar]]] until nonparticipation triggered reversion to regular user status. As http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/User:Lazyquasar at Wikibooks for the express purpose of participating with Wikiversity, I have been active in discussion and debate regarding Wikiversity on all applicable sites and the foundation mailing list. I have contributed a fair bit to the Engineering section at the Wikibooks prototype. I intend to be doing a fair amount of work with Wikiversity and feel I can be an efficient and fair administrator. I also have some interest in seeing Wikimedia ported to Java and interfaced to some distributed technologies. I owned/operated a computer consultanting firm for eight years and have a clear understanding of "first do no harm" when given access to mission critical servers. As owner it was my responsibility to train the systems analysts I dispatched to client site in the art of doing no harm that could not be repaired or recovered efficiently. --Mirwin

  • Support - Michael has been a very long-time supporter of Wikiversity during much of the phase while this project was before the WMF board of trustees, and has helped contribute a major portion of the content that is already here on this project as well even before en.wikiversity became live. I would love to see him become the first "official" admin (not done on a temp basis just to get thing going). He certainly understands the mission of Wikiversity and wants to make some very meaningful contributions, and would be very useful for the vandalism patrol as well. --Robert Horning 13:38, 18 August 2006 (UTC)
I no longer require custodialship, please put me on the list to be stripped of this responsibility at earliest opportunity. I will be limiting my participation for a while to tutoring algebra if my nephew or other people need it from Robert's Algegra Environment. Thanks! Mirwin 06:14, 20 August 2006 (UTC)
