Welcome to Nookipedia's Staff Application page! Nookipedia is always looking for active and experienced editors to become a part of its staff, who are granted a few extra tools to aid in the maintenance of the wiki. If you feel that you or another editor is ready to become a staff member or be promoted to higher staff position, please follow the application instructions below.

Requirements[edit]

Before applying, you must meet the following criteria:

  • 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.

Failure to meet the above criteria will result in your application being removed on sight. There is, however, one exception detailed below.

  • In addition, although not required at the time of application, Nookipedia staff members must have a verified e-mail address attached to their account. If an e-mail address is not added and verified within 7 days of promotion, your staff permissions will be temporarily revoked until an e-mail is verified. However, it is not mandatory (but nevertheless recommended) to have notifications enabled or allow other users to e-mail you.

Standards[edit]

Although not mandatory, it is also recommended that you show the following qualities and skills before applying, as this will give you a greater chance of success:

  • Knowledge of editing Nookipedia and our policies.
  • Willingness and ability to communicate with and help users in a courteous manner.
  • Being fairly active.

Nominations[edit]

Any editor can nominate other users for promotions. If nominating another user, you should discuss the nomination first and get their permission. Additionally, the following rules also apply:

  • Non-staff editors may only nominate users that meet the criteria detailed above (200 mainspace edits and no failed application in the last 90 days).
  • Staff members may nominate any user for a staff position, regardless of whether they have made 200 mainspace edits or not.

Remember, becoming a staff member isn't a big deal - no user is higher than another, and being a member of staff simply means that you have been trusted with extra tools to help out with.

Applying[edit]

It is suggested that non-staff apply for the Patroller position. All valid applications are considered by the current staff, who offer input and support/opposition. Non-staff users can also provide input in the Comments section, which may be considered in the final decision. A week after an application is submitted (or sooner if the consensus is clear), a Director or Bureaucrat will determine the consensus of the vote and discussion (or extend the time period if needed). If your application fails, though, don't be discouraged! Take any advice into mind, and re-apply (after at least 90 days) when you think you're ready again.


If you think you or another user is ready to become a staff member or be promoted to another staff position, simply fill out the following template and paste it in the Applications section below.

Vmario97 (talk | contribs | logs) for Bureaucrat
Result: Undetermined
Consensus will be determined by a bureaucrat after seven days.
Nomination

I have done some incredible work over the last year, and especially recently with all of the Animal Crossing: New Horizons content and my bot (Weavile). I'll try not to overuse the tools but it's duty of buraucrat to delete inappropriate messages, change user roles, etc. I'll still making the wiki better! vmario97 (talk) 11:27, August 7, 2020 (EDT)

Comments
Any editor may provide input here.

  • I suggested vmario to apply for this position, so naturally I'm in full support. vmario has done incredible work throughout his entire time on the wiki, and has been instrumental in adding the recent New Horizons content additions. This wiki would not be as great as it is without his hard work and commitment. I know he'll make a great member of the bureaucrat team! -Jake (talk) 23:26, August 7, 2020 (EDT)
  • vmario has been integral to our coverage of New Horizons - and on top of the typical editing, I've been consistently impressed with his ability to quickly dive in and master new things that bring high-impract results to the wiki, such as Cargo, database table design, PyWikiBot, Google Apps Script, and more. Would make a great bureaucrat! ~SuperHamster Talk 02:34, August 11, 2020 (EDT)
