Wiki Size: 25,342 pages see stats...
(As of: 08 March 2014)
Culture

The English Wikiversity is pretty laid back. The sysops show a great deal of restraint, aside from being about as eager as Meta-Wiki sysops to revisiondelete edits on questionable grounds (although the page on the topic theoretically suggests that "Its use should be kept to a bare minimum"). The process for becoming a sysop (known on Wikiversity as a custodian) involves mentorship and evaluation.
