User:Zeus/Volunteering Notes

From Miraheze Meta, Miraheze's central coordination wiki

This page is used for my personal volunteering notes, primarily on Meta Wiki, such as RFC voting, and likely Wiki creator in the future. Feel free to copy/reference these if you wish.

Requests process[edit source]

  • Step 1: Is there any filler content within the request?
    • If yes, attempt to evaluate the request, barring the filler content. If it's far too complicated, or the request is purely filler,  decline the request.
      • Note that Fandom imports count as filler. If this is mentioned, research the source wiki to gain a greater understanding of the wiki.
  • Step 2: Is there a clearly defined scope?
    • If no or the scope is unclear,  On hold ask for more info.
    • If yes, is the scope allowed by the current Content Policy?
      • Is the wiki forbidden (ex. Reception wikis, -ball wikis, etc.)?
      • Is the scope too broad?
      • If no to the above, research the topic for complete confidence.
  • Step 3: Does the scope exist already?
    • If yes, is the wiki a subtopic of a larger wiki? (ex. Super Meat Boy Speedrunning Wiki)? Is it a part of a wiki migration? Is it a Wikimedia fork (with a valid reason for creation)? Is this a recreation of a deleted wiki?
      • If no to any of these,  decline and redirect the user to the pre-existing wiki.
      • If yes to Wikimedia fork, defer the user to a Steward for further enquiry.
      • If yes to deleted wiki, was it deleted for Content Policy violations? Has an attempt been made to restore the wiki via the Steward requests page?
  • Step 4: Is the subdomain accurate? Is it spammy? Does it denote which language it is in?
