User:Jaobar/Admins to Interview List 1

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

What is this?[edit]

Dr. Jonathan Obar is teaching a course this semester on how Wikipedia is governed and how administrators are selected. We're looking for administrators so each student in the course will have a different admin to interview. This list isn't final, so don't worry if your name shows up on this list. If you wish not to be interviewed, you may either do nothing (leaving a blank under "Interested") or fill in that column with {{N}} to let us know you're not interested. If interested, please mark the column with {{Y}}. Any questions, feel free to post them. Thanks! Bob the WikipediaN (talkcontribs) 20:09, 26 January 2012 (UTC)

  • Interviews can take place over skype or IRC (whichever the interviewee prefers) and will last approximately 30 minutes. Jaobar (talk) 02:35, 27 January 2012 (UTC)
  • (NEW) Students will be conducting interviews during the last week of February and the first few weeks of March, 2012.--Jaobar (talk) 19:46, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Admins to contact for interview[edit]

Adminship may be verified by clicking "global contribs" next to the username. If the user is an administrator, the word "sysop" appears next to the wiki that user administers.
