Guidelines



Overview
On Zelda Wiki, there are three groups of people that oversee the creation of content, the safety of the community, and the communication between other Zelda fan groups. The Zelda Wiki staff typically operate in the background of most wiki affairs, but we can be found all over working on different tasks. You may see someone with a blue name appear in the Recent Changes log, or you may see an announcement posted on the Discord server. All of these people are part of our staff team and are working to improve the wiki as a whole.

Three groups of staff operate on the wiki:

  • The Wiki Staff oversee the day-to-day operation of the wiki. They are the staff you will see editing on a daily basis. They are responsible for moderating and fixing up edits, banning vandals, answering questions, and generally keeping the wiki running. They don't typically have to write up the content themselves (although some do), but they are responsible for making sure the content that is already there is current and good-quality.
    • Wiki Staff Trainees are administrators in training. They are distinguished from full-fledged admins by the Piece of Heart next to their username (see Becoming an Admin). They have all the same rights as regular administrators, but they do not have the autopatrol role, which means that regular administrators would need to review their edits and "train" them until their edits consistently match the Guidelines.
  • The Partnered Staff are webmasters and staff members of other fansites that are affiliated with Zelda Wiki. Some of these sites include Zelda Universe, NIWA, and Fandom. All of these people can have input on discussions related to the wiki, but not all of these members edit the wiki actively.

All three of these groups have the same power in changing Policy, banning users, and influencing the wiki as any other staff. Operating between these three groups is the Wiki Director (also called the editor in chief). They act as an intermediary between the three groups and perform tasks such as organizing events such as weekly meetings, collab edits for pages, and other events. The current editor in chief is TriforceTony.

Contact the Staff

General questions should be directed in the #wiki-general channel on our Discord server, which administrators monitor regularly. Posting there assures that you will get a timely response from an admin suited to answering your question. There are also more channels under the "Wiki" category that relate to more specific questions, like #graphics which is used for questions regarding image files.

If you have a question regarding a specific staff member, you can also contact them on their talk page if you wish. In the "Contact Info" column of the Wiki Staff table below, a link to each administrator's talk page and their Discord tag is provided.

Partnered Staff

This is a list of all the people who run or have a position on a website or community that is affiliated with Zelda Wiki, like Zelda Universe for example. All of these people may have input on discussions related to the wiki, but not all of these members edit the wiki. If you wish to contact any of these people, it is best to do so from their own groups.

About Staff Membership

The staff represent Zelda Wiki as an organization and act in what they believe to be the site's best interests. They speak and act on behalf of the wiki's user base, especially its readership which does not have much of a voice on the wiki itself. The staff has a decisive influence on discussions about the content of the site (e.g. policy changes, merge and split discussions, and so on). Administrators in particular will lead many of these discussions. However, the staff does not have ultimate authority. At Zelda Wiki, the majority of decisions are made by consensus. All users have an equal say in the Discord server and on talk pages. The staff will only step in and make the final decision in situations where no consensus is being reached. That said, there are certain issues which must be handled by staff only. These include server administration, bans, promotions, demotions, page protections, and the enforcement of the Code of Conduct. Staff members reserve the right to make final decisions regarding these issues, though they will certainly consider other editors' concerns. The primary goal of every staff member is to ensure a safe and easily accessible platform for all readers and editors because, at the end of the day, that's what the wiki is all about.

In the modern era of Zelda Wiki, staff members all start out as regular users on the site. Any Zelda Wiki user can become a staff member given the right conditions. See Becoming an Admin below for more details.

Admin Roles

Administrators are trusted users who help the wiki in more than just editing articles. Their main responsibilities are:

  • Patrolling, i.e. quality control.
  • Leading the site's editor base and coaching new users.
  • Working with editors to create, amend, and implement policies.
  • Enacting said policies and enforcing the Code of Conduct.
  • Combating vandals and spambots.
  • Performing general site maintenance.

Admins are granted special rights to execute their tasks. These include deletion, page protection, banning, access to wiki analytics, and more.

Becoming an Admin

Users can be asked to join the staff team after being noticed by the staff. Staff frequently moderate the Recent Changes, and any user whose contributions consistently meet the Quality Standards will be asked to join the staff team as a Wiki Trainee. While the user is under trainee status, admins will teach the user how and when to use their new tools appropriately, as well as make sure that all of the user's edits have no consistent mistakes. Once the trainee makes consistent edits with few or no mistakes, shows that they know how to use their tools effectively and appropriately, and demonstrates an ability to work with others by participating in wiki discussions, they will be offered the Autopatrol role.

Retired Staff

Retired Wiki Staff

The following is a list of former Wiki Staff members; all of them have been recognized for their role in shaping the wiki by a permanent lavender color highlight on their usernames. Retired staff do not keep their administrative rights, but most retired staff can ask to be retrained and retake their role as an admin if they so wish. All users will be listed here, even if they have been banned for their actions.

The staff was formerly divided into three groups: patrollers, admins, and bureaucrats, each with their own rights. This outdated staff structure was a vestige of Zelda Wiki's Mastermind system and was scrapped in 2014. Bureaucrats were renamed to executives, all staff members were given full administrative rights, and a single editor was appointed Wiki Director. This was once again changed on August 22, 2021, when these groups merged into a single group of Wiki Staff while retaining the Wiki Director role, removing the position of Executive. Because of this, many retired Wiki Staff are listed under the old title of Wiki Executive or Bureaucrat because they were members of the staff team before the change.

Furthermore, some people will have a second account link tied to their profile labeled (Zeldapedia). This is because the person originally had an account on Zeldapedia, a different Zelda encyclopedia that merged into Zelda Wiki on June 15, 2019. During this transition, all active Zeldapedia staff members were given administrative rights on Zelda Wiki. Zeldapedia is now kept as an archive and old accounts are linked to it in order to preserve history. People listed under the "Zeldapedia" category were only ever members of the staff team on Zeldapedia, and members in "Zelda Wiki & Zeldapedia" were staff on both Zeldapedia and Zelda Wiki before and after the merge.

On Zeldapedia, there were three types of wiki staff: rollbackers, administrators, and bureaucrats. Rollbackers were simply trusted editors that were given the rollback feature; administrators worked like Wiki Staff and moderated the site; bureaucrats oversaw the whole site and handled user rights, including the promotion of administrators. The occupations of each of these retired staff members are listed under their roles while they were active on Zeldapedia, in order to preserve history.

This article is a work in progress.

Retired Community Staff

This list contains all former Community Staff members. These people used to help run the wiki's Discord server and social media, but generally did not directly contribute by editing the wiki. Because of this, some people may be listed under both Retired Wiki Staff and Retired Community Staff in the event that they were a part of both teams.

Prior to August 22, 2021, Discord moderators were split into two groups: Server Moderators and Server Executives. However, these two groups have been merged into one group of Discord moderators under Community Staff. Because of this, some retired Discord staff are listed under the old titles of Server Moderator and Server Executive because of their roles at the time that they were moderators.
