Wikiversity:Candidates for Custodianship/Sotiale (Bureaucrat)

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hello, everyone. It is self-nomination for bureaucrat tools. I want to do volunteer work for our community! I always think that crat absence due to inactivity is very dangerous. Because this situation will cause community inactivity. As you know, Wikiversity BETA is an incubator project. Many contributors visit here and endeavor for establishing each language Wikiversity. Sometimes some users request Custodian tool. But if all crats are inactive, this process have trouble in dealing. Our community have 3 local crats, but 2 crats are inactive.

I know what is bureaucrat works because I have served as bureaucrat in Korean Wikipedia. I have served as custodian in here and deal with deletion and spam almost every day. If you have a question, please give me a question. Thank you and have a good time. --Sotiale (talk) 15:39, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

  2. Support Support : ... Allways there... Good Luck! Yarden (talk) 14:52, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
  3. Support Support I completely trust Sotiale although I cannot see any need for a new bureaucrat, honestly (apparently only 1 crat action was necessary since Crochet.david was promoted in February). Anyway, bureaucratship is no big deal. Vogone (talk) 16:13, 19 August 2013 (UTC)

  7. Support Support active as custodian, and why hasn't this been closed as successful? If there is a problem, please inform. (Single active 'crat might not want to close since supported the candidacy?) --Abd (talk) 15:50, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

  • Hi Sotiale, as custodian and now possibly in the future as a 'crat, why did you not yet comment on the proposal to move betawikiversity to the Incubator? --AFBorchert (talk) 08:08, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
    I already knew the existence of RfC, just observed it carefully. As you know, this proposal isn't first time.. therefore I wanted to know what the point of proposal is. Although I don't have enough time, so very short, I stated my view. --Sotiale (talk) 14:49, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
    Thanks, I just noted it. In your statement, you mentioned in particular that images can be uploaded at betawikiversity. Do you really see this as an advantage? What do you think about recent uploads like File:Ass Me WW2.jpg, File:Palmach.jpg and File:Irgun.svg.png that come without copyright information and description. Does betawikiversity has an Exemption Doctrine Policy per this WMF resolution? Otherwise, it seems best to restrict uploads to Commons. --AFBorchert (talk) 22:39, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
    Thank you AFBorchert. Anyway, I changed them to images on Commons. Yarden (talk) 07:36, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
    My answer is yes. As you know, 2 times proposal included 'project inactive' factor. So I endeavored to make a plan for project reactive. First step will be arrangement of polices and guidelines, second step will be active community. The end of the road will be 'limited non-free contents using for learning resources'. Of course, not now. I think that incubator project is not imitation but real. Therefore EDP will be valid. listed files are the reason why I think 'not now for non-free contents'. I will go forward steadily like I did establishment of Korean Wikiversity and try at reactive for Korean Wikiquote, Korean Wikisource. Of course, if Wikiversity BETA will exist.. --Sotiale (talk) 14:33, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
    But is there any reason to keep new uploads coming in at betawikiversity as long as no EDP has been established? And how is this expected to work when individual projects grow out of betawikiversity, becoming projects of their own? New uploads without licenses keep coming. Here are the three most recent ones: File:星尘自然共和国.jpg, File:20120809Cheesefoot-Head(1) nr-Winchester Hampshire.jpg, and File:Stonehenge nr-Amesbury Wiltshire.jpg. They are interestingly used by pages like The Natural Republic of Astro-dust or Numeripoints kinematics. How does this fit into the scope of this site, given its language and its content? --AFBorchert (talk) 07:21, 26 November 2013 (UTC)

on the meta RfC and EDP issues[edit]

We don't have a collapse template here, apparently, so I will archive this to history and place a link. --Abd (talk) 15:30, 30 January 2014 (UTC)

  • the section as written: [1].
  • To take home:
  • The meta RfC to close Beta was improperly filed and, as filed, cannot satisfy clear, WMF-adopted policy for project closure. An new process would need to be filed, with, among other things, immediate announcement here, and it is already obvious it would fail. An unsigned link on Babal here, days later, obviously didn't cut it, there was no comment appearing from that. A site notice, a month later, brought in most comments, before then, the RfC was dead. In other words, suggestions that comments be made there caused the RfC to remain open, probably.
  • Beta needs an EDP policy. See the Wikiversity EDP: [2]. I believe that it can be improved for Beta's purposes. --Abd (talk) 15:43, 30 January 2014 (UTC)


Above, I requested that anyone with a problem with the appointment of Sotiale as a bureaucrat please inform us. No negative comment appearing, and the only active local bureaucrat having supported this unanimous request, I have requested steward action, at [3]. --Abd (talk) 13:22, 19 February 2014 (UTC)


Yes check.svg Done. Crochet.david (talk) 17:11, 19 February 2014 (UTC)
