  •   Support We occasionally get submissions using applied systems that may need your expertise and review. I hope you would be willing to do this. When you write "using MediaWiki to collaborate on a Raytheon project" I assume you mean the Raytheon DOMino program. Have you uploaded a copy of MediaWiki for this use or are you using the WMF projects? Have you considered contributing to the various Wikipedia articles on Systems Engineering? --Marshallsumter (discusscontribs) 02:29, 5 April 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support Certainly we could do with some more engineering knowledge on board and appreciate that professional engineering generates different outputs than academic engineering. Some more information would be useful though, e.g.: What does being a reviewer for INCOSE entail? Do you maintain a broad systems engineering knowledge or are you specialised in a particular aspect? T.Shafee(Evo﹠Evo)talk 11:37, 18 April 2021 (UTC)
  •   Support I agree with the other editor comments and would love to hear more about INCOSE. --Saguaromelee (discusscontribs) 17:23, 9 August 2021 (UTC)
  •   Oppose Not enough detail in the application, not enough reactivity to the questions here. Apply again when more experienced with MediaWiki? Sylvain Ribault (discusscontribs) 20:53, 13 August 2021 (UTC)
