Request for Interview Regarding Wikipedia Bots

Greetings Tinucherian-

My name is Randall Livingstone, and I am a graduate student at the University of Oregon, currently collecting data for my dissertation on Wikipedia editors who create and use bots and assisted editing tools, as well as editors involved in the initial and/or ongoing creation of bot policies on Wikipedia. As a member of BAG and the bot community, I would very much like to interview you for the project at a time and in a method that is most convenient for you (Gchat, another IM client, Skype, email, telephone, etc.). I am completely flexible and can work with your schedule. The interview will take approximately 30-45 minutes.

My dissertation project has been approved both by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) at the University of Oregon, and by the Research Committee at the Wikimedia Foundation. You can find more information on the project on my meta page.

Please let me know if you have any questions, and I look forward to hearing from you to set up a time to chat. Thank you very much.

Randall Livingstone, School of Journalism & Communication, University of Oregon

Request for adoption

Hi TinuCherian
I have reached here following the adopt user links. I am from Kerala and would like to be called as AB. Though always wanted to contribute, I was keeping away from editing due to confusion over the processes, frustration over quality issues - peacocking, controversies and the likes - and yes of course limited knowledge. Not that I have gained sufficient knowledge now, but feel it is not worthy and prudent to stay away from Wiki.
I am not sure from where to start, or what to seek help in. Anyway, administrator, my areas of interest include, Sociology (Indian and Western), Photography, Current events, Constitution of India etc...
I assume you would definitely have a procedure for newbies like me.
Please spare sometime for me.
Thanks and regards ABEditWiki (talk) 05:07, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
