Proposal of Application Process[edit]

Hey guys - since the beginning of Nookipedia, staff members have been promoted based on closed discussions amongst current staff members. Our system is flawed for several reasons, most important being:

  • Discussions took place on the Bulletin Board, which is unattached from the wiki and, as was seen with the recent downtime, caused hold-ups
  • Editors could not easily see the discussions regarding why they were or weren't promoted
  • It's hard for editors to "apply" for a staff position, since there is no formal process

A more formal, open process has been in the back of everyone's minds for a while, but it was never put into action (until now). I've created an application page, which revolves around these basic principles:

  • A user can apply themselves or nominate someone else for a position, with their permission
  • Editors can comment and any staff members vote
  • A Director, Bureaucrat, or Administrator, a week after the nomination, determines whether a promotion is successful, based on staff votes, and also on editor comments

This is all tentative and up for discussion. It's what I think is the best system, but if anyone else has suggestions, comments, or changes, please say so! Feel free to edit the page, too. Thanks guys. ~SuperHamster Talk 21:33, 10 November 2012 (EST)

I quite like the idea of this page and the template for ways for users to apply. As I was reading this, I remembered [page] that we had drafted as an application page. Although I like the practicality of the wiki one, I quite like the design of the html page one. However I do like the idea with actually making a form that users can submit.

The form sounds like a real nice idea, too. Would be much easier to use. I'd support that, though we'd need Jake to do his code-magic. ~SuperHamster Talk 12:35, 11 November 2012 (EST)

Implementation[edit]

Since we've left discussion open for a few days, I've gone ahead and implemented the application process. We can adjust kinks as time goes on (if we need to), and if we ever get the form-applications mentioned above by Leem working, we can switch to that. ~SuperHamster Talk 01:37, 15 November 2012 (EST)
