I would like to apply to the CVU post. I'm an active member of the wiki, I have the most contributions and I'm actively against vandalism. I am already a Custodian, and I have used that privilege to help the wiki grow and decrease vandalism.

Oppose Not done — Having both CVU and Custodian rights is not allowed. Such a thing would effectively make you an admin.
