Forums: Index War Room Admin Subdivisions

Here's my idea - we have many active admins... 5, if I'm not mistaken.

I'm bringing up an idea that may or may not have been cast off before - admin subdivision.

So what is it, exactly?

As two or three more people are likely going to become admins soon (Imrlybord7, Bovell, and Poketape, based on their past edits), it may become necessary to include specific admin jobs so the admin workspace doesn't become overpopulated.

This has already been put into effect on a small level, with the "Vandalism Patrol", however, that is on a much smaller basis than what I would like to see implemented.

Thoughts and opinions?

Five admins isn't that much for a wiki of our size, the way I see it. The RuneScape Wiki, for example, gets only a third of the traffic we get and they have thirty-nine active administrators.

With signing certain admins to specific jobs, it should honestly be completely voluntary and have no obligation or quotas tied to the administrator, which then half-defeats the purpose of starting the subdivisions. All users have their tendencies as to what they normally do when released out on the wide open plain of the Wiki. Even contributing is completely voluntary [(so, yes, all sysops could decide to up and leave all at the same time if they really wanted)], so I think assigning specialty areas and tasks to specific users wouldn't be the best way to go.

I agree about no quotas; but do you really think that the Runescape Wikia needs 39 admins? -- 01:34, February 1, 2010 (UTC) --user is not registered--WouldYouKindly 01:36, February 1, 2010 (UTC)
Unless we grow to the size of Wikipedia, we don't need to divide our admin staff. --Scottie theNerd 09:01, February 2, 2010 (UTC)
