The staff is a group of users that volunteer their time to maintain Nookipedia. Collectively, the staff team is responsible for patrolling wiki edits and assisting users. Additionally, each type of staff rank has abilities that allow them to better assist in different aspects of wiki maintenance.

Users are generally promoted to staff ranks through an application process, in which staff members vote on applicants and other wiki members provide input. After prolonged periods of inactivity, staff members may be demoted and placed in the Trustees group; if they resume their wiki activity, they may return to their previous position.

Staff ranks

Directors

Directors are the the highest in command on Nookipedia. There are two directors: Jake, responsible for supporting the site both financially and on a server level, and SuperHamster, who manages the day-to-day operation of the site.

Bureaucrats

Bureaucrats, in addition to performing Administrator duties, help with the day-to-day administration of the wiki by establishing the site's rules and managing user rights.

Administrators

Administrators are the primary enforcers of the wiki's rules, taking an active role in resolving disputes and combating vandals. They have a number of abilities to aid them in this task, such as protecting pages and blocking users.

Patrollers

Patrollers are trusted wiki users with access to additional wiki tools that allow them contribute in different ways. They patrol the wiki's edits and assist users with editing Nookipedia.

Lead Editors

Formerly, Lead Editors were staff members trusted with more wiki tools in addition to those of Patrollers. This rank's abilities have since been transferred to the Patroller rank.

What can't the staff do?

Staff members should not use their powers to settle editing disputes; for example, to lock a page on a version he or she prefers in an editing dispute that is not vandalism. Staff powers should be used to help keep the wiki clear of vandalism, spam, and users who make malicious edits, but not for simple disagreements between users acting in good faith. Ideally a staff member should not be considered "in charge," nor should the position be considered as a trophy. The ideal admin is simply someone who is trusted to have a few extra buttons and to use them for the benefit of the wiki. Remember, being an administrator is not a big deal. You're simply helping the wiki in a different way than the average user.

Becoming a staff member

Any editors interested in becoming a staff member or nominating another editor can submit an application at the application page. However, the following criteria must be met before you may apply for a staff position:

  • You must have made at least 200 mainspace edits since you joined. This only includes edits in the 'Article' namespace. Edits in other namespaces do not count.
  • If you post an application and it turns out to be unsuccessful, you must wait at least 90 days, starting from the date the application was closed, before you may apply again.

Periodically, Bureaucrats and Directors may discuss staff positions and offer promotions, along with demoting inactive staff members.
