The WoWWiki experts approval or change process will be a straightforward consensus process with an admin interpreting the comments to decide if and expert should be approved or changed. Feel free to discuss any changes to the process you would like to recommend.

Approval process

To get approved the candidate must have a section on the signup page.

  • An admin will review comments made by other users about each candidate and decide on approval if the candidate meets the minimum requirements or gets overwhelming support or opposition.
  • A minimum of 5 positive or negative comments will be needed before a decision is made.
    • As usual, sockpuppets or other means of gaming the system will result in disqualification (likely permanent).
  • An admin will decide on approval based on comments and try to seek consensus.
  • Once an expert is chosen, they're signup section will be archived.

Change process

The signup page will also be used for requests by other users to change the expert (basically choose a different expert).

  • An admin will review comments made by other users about other candidates besides the incumbent expert.
  • Alternative candidates must have a minimum of 5 positive comments and at least one more positive comment than the incumbent.
    • As usual, sockpuppets or other means of gaming the system will result in disqualification (likely permanent).
  • An admin will decide to keep incumbent or choose an alternate based on comments and try to seek consensus.
  • If the incumbent is chosen to remain, the signup section of the incumbent will be archived.
  • If a new expert is chosen, the signup section of the previous expert and the new expert will be archived.
