Stev's application for Wiki Maintainer.

Recommended Posts

Ckey/BYOND Username: steviii

Position Being Applied For: Wiki maintainer

Have you read the Lore Team Rules and Regulations wiki page? I’ve read the entire page, then re-read anything that would be actually important to a wiki maintainer

Past Experiences/Knowledge: I’ve written plenty of private/public guides, plus I know a serviceable amount about editing the wiki here. Exceptions to that knowledge being separately editable sections inside pages.

Examples of Past Work: minor changes on various pages including but not limited to:

https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Job_Guides Scrubbing mention of cloning and ‘Identifying antagonists’

https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=NanoTrasen_Liaison Removed mention of loyalty implants, and cloning
I have plenty of other minor edits, but none of them are saved anywhere, so it would take a while to scrub through all the pages to find what pages I've edited, so this is just the ones I remembered doing in one sitting.

Plus, my magnum opus:
https://wiki.aurorastation.org/index.php?title=Guide_to_Modular_Weaponry Wrote this entire guide, commonly updating various parts.
 

Additional Comments: I imagine when NBT drops, the wiki team is going to be scrambling to update things as fast as possible, so I would like to help lessen the load.
As a plus, I will be actively editing pages throughout this entire application process, so I'll edit this with any additions.

Hello, just posting here that I am aware of this application and will review it fully during the weekend.

I know I encouraged you to come forward with this application, but I do still have a couple questions that I felt were better answered in a public forum :^)

1) What areas of the wiki are you keen on working on?

2) You have told me before you wanted to apply because you wanted to contribute to the community in a meaningful way. What made you want to apply for this over being a moderator or code contributor or developer?

3) Finally, do you feel as though this is a role you can commit to for a long period of time?

Good luck with your application dude and thanks for taking the time to apply!

I'm especially interested in writing guides, especially research guides, cause I feel like research guides are a bit shriveled, even though its the reason the station exists. I'll obviously work on other things, but my main stuff is going to be improving the guides related to research, making more, re-formatting, the like.

I've tried applying for moderator in the past, and failed, plus I have very little coding skill, so I decided that my talent for bullshit writing would help more. The only reason I didn't want to just continue doing it as a normie is mostly the fact that the team is going to be swamped around the NBT, so I felt it'd be more meaningful if I instead applied for this job

I'm hoping to stay till at least the end of the wiki rush around the release of the NBT, but I'm going to stay as long as I'm not burnt out. So, likely plenty of time, as I'm a massive nerd with way too much time for very weird things.

It seems I messed up the link and included a : on the end. All the links have been corrected.

ooooh, well that fixes that.

the guide looks well done and it appears you've even made some editions to it based on feedback. overall your temperament feels like someone who is able to work well in a group. +1 😄

The questions I was going to ask were asked, I've talked to people and overall there is no problem and you seem to have a healthy attitude.

I don't really see a reason why I shouldn't accept you.

Application Accepted.
