Wikiversity Board of Regents [1] election is on the front burner at v: at last.

Our mock w:September (2009) election will run v:user:jtneill - dean of School:Psychology and his vice-dean - v:user:mikeu against wikiversity founders Cormac and JWSchmidt. The incumbents are being called to the carpet for allowing wikiversity to:

  • end up in shambles
  • go to the dogs
  • deteriorate
  • stagnate
  • fail
  • xxx
  • yy
  • z

LiquidThreads v:template:liquidThreads are the tools of the 2020's that the New Guarde is running on for an alliterative platform. Semantically, the platform is one of order & law (taxonomic style and referential integrity) with its new catalyst role appointed through a v:Wikiversity:Community Review via a w:consensus-driven process. The process is open to both {{custodian}} and {{user}} participation with facilited, moderated, constrained, documented, sliced, diced and pureed fine-grained processes for finding out just what the matter[2]

Wikiversity:Guidelines are coming from above [3] .. kind of like Hail & Fire.

But the bleeding edge is the custodial-catalytic dynamic that PROMISES to deliver a win-win allowing JWS and Cormac to rest on their laurels for a couple more years.

Wikiversity:Process: v:liquidThreads | v:Template:liquidThreads & v:Template:VOTE // v:Template:User | v:Template:Catalyst | v:Template:Custodian
