We should all extend the same benefit of the doubt to our fellow admins, until they repeatedly prove that they are unworthy of such a presumption.

WikiProject Administrator[edit]

Hey there. Hope you don't mind, I added your User:NoSeptember/The NoSeptember Admin Project page as a link from Wikipedia:WikiProject Administrator. This will give it wider exposure. Regards, œ 18:56, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

That is fine, although many of the pages are a bit out of date - but anyone who wishes to can bring them up to date. Thanks, NoSeptember 20:42, 4 January 2010 (UTC)

I was looking at the above page and would be curious to get the same for fr:. Did you run your own script, or do you know of one that is freely available on the toolserver?

question of admin data[edit]

Hi, NoSeptember,

Thanks for reading. I have found the project of admin made by you about graphs and some data. For my research, I want the list of admin in en.wikipedia with promotion and retired date. Do you know where I can get such data from? thanks very much!Zeyi (talk) 13:47, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Hi there! I spotted a small error in a link on this page and corrected it (diff) - thought it would be easiest to fix it myself - hope you don't mind. Regards. Mato (talk) 13:06, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

I appreciate any updates on these pages, even though sadly they are now several years out of date. Cheers, NoSeptember 22:34, 9 November 2011 (UTC)

User:SebastianHelm/Sheep vote[edit]

Just so you know, I deleted User:SebastianHelm/Sheep vote because it doesn't represent my view anymore. However, some of your userspace pages still link there; so, if you (or any of the many people who worked on this while it was in project space) want it in your userspace, please feel free to restore it. — Sebastian 08:06, 7 January 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for the note. We all change our opinions as we go along, I'm sure that some of the things I have written and placed in my Admin project no longer represent my current views. I leave them because they still represent the historical views I had, and may agree with someone else's current views. It is something for anyone to read over and ponder, and either agree or disagree with as they choose. NoSeptember 21:30, 11 January 2012 (UTC)

MSU Interview[edit]

Dear NoSeptember,

My name is Jonathan Obar user:Jaobar, I'm a professor in the College of Communication Arts and Sciences at Michigan State University and a Teaching Fellow with the Wikimedia Foundation's Education Program. This semester I've been running a little experiment at MSU, a class where we teach students about becoming Wikipedia administrators. Not a lot is known about your community, and our students (who are fascinated by wiki-culture by the way!) want to learn how you do what you do, and why you do it. A while back I proposed this idea (the class) to the communityHERE, where it was met mainly with positive feedback. Anyhow, I'd like my students to speak with a few administrators to get a sense of admin experiences, training, motivations, likes, dislikes, etc. We were wondering if you'd be interested in speaking with one of our students.

So a few things about the interviews:

  • Interviews will last between 15 and 30 minutes.
  • Interviews can be conducted over skype (preferred), IRC or email. (You choose the form of communication based upon your comfort level, time, etc.)
  • All interviews will be completely anonymous, meaning that you (real name and/or pseudonym) will never be identified in any of our materials, unless you give the interviewer permission to do so.
  • All interviews will be completely voluntary. You are under no obligation to say yes to an interview, and can say no and stop or leave the interview at any time.
  • The entire interview process is being overseen by MSU's institutional review board (ethics review). This means that all questions have been approved by the university and all students have been trained how to conduct interviews ethically and properly.

Bottom line is that we really need your help, and would really appreciate the opportunity to speak with you. If interested, please send me an email at (to maintain anonymity) and I will add your name to my offline contact list. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can post your nameHERE instead.

If you have questions or concerns at any time, feel free to email me at I will be more than happy to speak with you.

Thanks in advance for your help. We have a lot to learn from you.

RfA voting records[edit]

Hey NoSeptember, I'm pretty sure we haven't met before, but I was just updating your RfA voting records subpage (hope you don't mind) and I started wondering if it'd be a good idea to move some of its content into Wikipedia space under the same page name. I figured I should post here before doing anything, just to make sure you're OK with it. Kurtis (talk) 05:15, 23 August 2012 (UTC)

I have no problem at all with the moving of the RfA voting records subpage or a portion thereof. Many of the pages in The NoSeptember Admin Project are years out of date because I was the primary updater of the pages. A page that has been brought up to date is certainly a good candidate for a move, but if the page gets out of date again, it should be moved back to my user space, since sooner or later someone will decide to mark the page as "historical" or delete it otherwise. You are somewhat taking on a commitment to keep the page updated to the extent others don't come along to help with this task. I know other editors did that for several years after I stopped work on this page, but I also note that in the three years before you started your 2012 edits there were only two edits to the page. Look through the others pages in the project to see if they are of interest to you too. Many pages are out of date but are still a good record of the early years of Wikipedia history. Cheers and Good Luck, NoSeptember 14:16, 24 August 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for your thorough response, I appreciate it. I've been very familiar with your admin project for some time now, and felt compelled to update it when I saw that very few pages have been added since that time. I think it is helpful for us to maintain a record of such things for easy reference should the need arise; I'm also planning on reworking the chronological unsuccessful candidacies pages so that they will also list the final tallies and the person who closed any given RfA.

Oral History Project[edit]

Hey, NoSeptember,

Just wanted to say how interesting your Admin Project pages are. It's hard to find much data on WP administration or any detailed history of the early years (2001-2005) that explains the process of how certain procedures or structures came to be. WP could really use an oral history project (which really could be done on WP or via email) before memories are forgotten.

Unless one is working on a grant project, collecting stats is kind of a thankless task so I just wanted to let you know that I found them useful. Thanks! Liz Read! Talk! 20:35, 10 November 2013 (UTC)

  • Thank you for your comments. I did the pages on early history precisely because I found so little information about it when I was looking. I agree that it would be nice if someone did an oral history project on our early history. Anyone interested? NoSeptember 23:26, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
