Good Qualities for Candidates

  • You have been around this Wiki for a while.
    • Dedication is a nice thing. It's nice to see users who are likely to stick around for a while.
  • You are an active member of the Wiki.
    • This does not mean that you need to make an edit daily. Quality is highly valued over quantity. The number of edits you have is not important as anyone can rack up a large amount of edits. If you tend to take off for a week or longer regularly, that is not ideal. It is completely understandable that you may take off every now and then, but it should not be a regular thing.
  • You are able to keep calm.
    • Sometimes conflict will come about. You do not need to be friends with anyone here, but you certainly should not be provoking other users. Being able to stay calm shows that a contributor is able to stay in control.
  • You have a friendly attitude.
    • We want users to feel welcome here. There are no dumb questions or dumb ideas. It's understandable that you might have a bad day every now and then, but you can feel free to distance yourself if needed. Remember, being staff is just a volunteer position.
  • You are familiar with Town of Salem.
    • You do not need to know how everything works with Town of Salem, but you should be familiar with the basic things such as how roles work and the main rules of the game. If you see an unanswered question in the comments for example, please try answering it if you know the answer!
  • You are open to learning.
    • Everyone has to start somewhere! It's okay if you're not the most knowledgeable person out there. As long as you have a positive attitude and are willing to learn, you'll do nicely!
  • You are overall a patient person.
    • This goes hand in hand with being calm. Sometimes a user might be acting silly or something may need to be moved or deleted. Staff members may not always be around, but most cases tend to be pretty minor.
      • A user has vandalized an article page? Undo it. Every user can undo vandalism. With that said, please do not go to a staff member's page and ask for someone to be blocked or banned. You can let the staff know that someone has vandalized, but do not tell them how to handle the situation. They are staff for a reason, after all. They are capable of handling the situation.
      • A user created an article page which shouldn't be an article page? Slap on the "Candidates for deletion" category. If you leave a comment, properly direct the user to where they may post their information. Direct them to their blog page or the Wiki's forums for example. Be helpful.
      • Unable to get a staff member's response? If it's urgent, consider asking other staff members. If it's not urgent, well.... just wait. Do not spam a person's wall asking for them to respond. They will respond when they are available to do so.

Remember that you do not need to be staff to be useful for the Wiki. Most contributors have made the Wiki what it is today without any sort of power. Of course we all have lives outside of the Wiki and sometimes people will become inactive. If there is a need for more staff, then users will be approached and asked if they would like a promotion. Keep in mind that not everyone will become staff, but if you match the criteria listed above, then you will have a higher chance of being promoted next.
