Yes, you read it correctly! We are looking for some fresh pairs of hands to help out on the wiki.
It's great to see everyone so keen to help! I will reply to all of you over the next week or so. Please make sure the have read the criteria before you apply.
But... let me say first of all, that we are not looking to hire any new administrators (sysops). Also, if you have the "NEW EDITOR" tag on your profile page, you cannot apply for any of these positions. Nor if you have under 40 edits.
So, with that said, the positions that are up for grabs are:
- 2 Chat moderators
- 2-4 Forum moderators
These people will need to be very level headed and be able to help users. But being able to laugh is still important!
Forum moderators are going to be a new addition to the infrastructure here. Due to the fact that Wikia doesn't yet have a "Forum moderator" user group you will not have any special permissions over and above other wiki users. You will, however, be trusted by us to help users use the forums, remove spam threads and comments and move threads that are in the wrong boards. You will also need to report any users that are spamming the forums to an active admin.
Anyone can revert vandalism and bad-faith edits, but it takes a couple of clicks in the page history to get it done. Users with the "rollback" permission are able to undo bad edits with one click, by using the rollback link on diff pages, user contributions list, or the list of recent changes.
NOTE: For you to be eligible for this, your edits must show that you are good at reverting vandalism and bad-faith edits.
Make sure you have read all of this blog before you apply and you have not been ruled out by the criteria at the top.
If you think you are eligible and have got what it takes for one or more of these positions, leave a comment down below and write a little bit about why you would be good for said position(s).
Good luck and we look forward to hearing from you!
