Forums: Index > Watercooler > Managing and building the community


Seeing that our community is growing with new unique IPs editing the Tribes Wikia every week, I feel it is time that we have team to manage the content/edits. I believe that this is important because out wiki has some pages that have become obsolete ( & The admin and owner of the Wikia has deleted their account leaving us with no leadership. Therefore we will need to adopt this wiki. With the adoption of the wiki, our wiki can move forward in building the community.

Coming to the point, we, as a community, need to decide on who would like to be responsible for becoming the bureaucrat for Tribes Wikia. I have started our appeal for the adoption here. Wendy has recommended Rhed, AviMech and myself talk about it.

So Rhed and AviMech, I would like to hear what you guys have to say, as well as any newer members. How do you feel we should move forward?

This is definitey something LONG overdue, I think it would be a great idea to see if we could appoint some sort of manager for the wiki!

What would you like to be? Do you want to be our Adoptor, since you are the first active member? I also agree that we can have multiple admins to regulate the content, since I'm sure both you, I and any other members have time constraints making so that we cannot always be online. We just need a single person to be the one to adopt the wiki and then that person will appoint admins. I am definitely willing to back either you or AviMech if either of you would like to adopt the wiki.

What are your thoughts on the community so far? Any ideas on how to grow our editor base? I ask the latter since we have quite a number of recurring IPs that edit the wiki but haven't created accounts.

We have successfully adopted the Tribes Wiki. Our next goal is to appoint management for the wiki (see below ).

Well I've got myself a computer again, and it looks like the game has gone through quite an update. Hopefully I can get updating soon,

I also suggest we merge these classes ASAP and start testing out these new weapons and unlocks. I'll probably revise my perks page to better cover the new perks, which I understand are level based.

Here's to keeping a wiki just barely getting by.

Admin RightsEdit

I have recently been granted admin and bureaucrat rights and as a community we need to set up a regulatory body for content management. Any active members that wish to apply to have adminship please do so below. If you wish to support another community member do so under their petition.

I might as well, if it's deemed appropriate. I'm sure I can help out.

Yes, Rhed you are one of the original wikia contributors. I have updated your user group.
