This is the general discussion page for the wiki! New founders should leave a nice welcome message and encourage new visitors and editors to leave a note to get the conversation started.
Removing Video Game/Deleted Material Articles
Following the Staff Survey that we conducted in July, polls reveal that a majority of voters believe this wiki could benefit from newer Staff members. As such, we will begin a process to choose new Content Moderators. In case you need to, you can consult the whole Staff Survey here and some of its conclusions here.
Since the last election in this wiki, Wikia has released new groups of User rights, including Content Moderators, whose tools and functions can be consulted at the Help:User rights. The tools they have would allow new Content Moderators to protect and edit pages that had needed to be protected, rename images, delete or undelete articles and files, rollback undesired edits and patrol new pages. As such, an ideal content moderator should be an user whose edits are trustworthy, and, especially, that knows, follows and respects this wiki's policies and standards.
Following the release of these ranks, that are an intermediate step between a regular user and a full-fledged administrator, Wikia encourages promotion of users to these medium ranks before a promotion to administrators. So, in the proper section below, editors will be able to nominate the users they think are worthy of becoming new content moderators.
On the other hand, during the staff survey there were also comments, some in first person, about the possibility of demotions of some of the current staff members. In the proper section below, you will also be able to comment about this possibility.
