This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Message Wall:30215 article.
  • Hi all, just a heads-up that I'll be on the lookout for some new wiki staff. The former staff were all inactive for too long, so they were recently removed and now some spots have opened up.

    Currently I'm prioritizing rollbacks and thread moderators. (Not looking for chat moderators because I never see the chat box being used. Still a nice feature to have though, which is why I haven't simply disabled it yet.) Criteria for each has been detailed below. I've also recently updated the "How to be promoted" section of the wiki administration page with more general criteria.

    Not doing anything too formal about this - no applications, eliminations, time frames or the like. Just brief background & activity checks, and then just going by my best judgment in my own time.

    If anyone is interested and meets good standards of the criteria, please let me know (either in this thread or on my wall). Again, no apps, but you'll be put on a short list. After that, I'll discern when the appropriate time to appoint people will be. Let me also know if you have any questions or comments.

    Thanks! --§ρøττεδςταr(talk)
