Please add your request for custodianship (or other staff positions) below. Include a short summary of why you think you should be given the privileges and please refer to your involvement in other Wikimedia projects. If you have sysop/bureaucrat status at a sister project, please indicate so as well.
In a wiki, trust arises from good editing of webpages and "good editing" is what advances the project. If you have a record of good editing then you are likely to be trusted and be granted the tools to protect pages from vandalism and block vandals and delete useless pages. Having those tools really just means you have to do more work -dull and boring work - for the community.
Please place candidate requests or nominations on a subpage and transclude it here.
Requests and Nominations for Curatorship
As suggested by User:Dave Braunschweig. I happily accept the nomination. I have been here since the day the site was founded, occasionally active and attempting to be helpful. I have autoconfirm rights now and advanced rights on several WMF wikis (admin on wikispecies:, bureaucrat on outreach:, I was one of the original admins on d:) and non-WMF wikis (bureaucrat on wikiindex: and wikilivres:, admin on most editions of Wikitravel). Please let me know if you think I can be of further assistance here. Thanks. —Justin (koavf)❤T☮C☺M☯ 17:37, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
- Support - As mentor. It is my pleasure to nominate User:Koavf for curatorship. Justin has been a part of Wikiversity from the beginning in August 2006, and has more than 1.5 million edits on across the various wiki projects.  More recently, he has shown a renewed interest in improving Wikiversity and assisting other users here. Having curator tools would assist in this effort. -- Dave Braunschweig (discuss • contribs) 17:56, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

Custodians willing to mentor
I am willing to mentor, although with Justin's extensive wiki involvement on Wikiversity and elsewhere, I don't expect much mentoring will be necessary. -- Dave Braunschweig (discuss • contribs) 17:56, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
- Koavf satisfies the requirements for Curatorship, has a willing, experienced mentor, and has community support.
- 10:59, 21 October 2016 Jtneill changed group membership for User:Koavf from (none) to curator (Per Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship/Koavf). -- Jtneill - Talk - c 00:08, 21 October 2016 (UTC)
Requests and Nominations for Probationary Custodianship
I have recently celebrated a year of editing on Wikiversity, although I have been a Wikipedia editor for several years. During that year I have:
- Worked with the University of Westminster putting SPIR608 Political Simulations and Gaming on WV
- Worked with the University of Westminster and the University of Surrey putting Portal:Simulation and Gaming Archive on WV
- Worked on British Empire course design
- Developed templates so that the List of Custodians sorts by date order
- Promoted WV at the Wikimedia UK Conference:Wiki in the lecture room
- I would also like to see WV develop by working more closely with Wikimedia Outreach on developing Open Educational Resources
- I have also been active on Wikieducator and would like to see a closer relationship with them.
I feel becoming a WV Custodian would help me make further useful contributions to WV.Leutha 08:20, 13 August 2011 (UTC)
