General questions

What are your best contributions to MicroWiki, and why?

Joseph Puglisi says:
‘I spend time fixing up newbie pages often, and enjoy nominating ad-like articles for deletion as a patroller. Overall I feel as an admin I'd be able to get more done, deleting the ad-like articles and spam faster, and more.’

Billy Neil says:
‘I Suppose my best contributions to the wiki would just be the general copy editing work and general upkeep. That and the file uploading I did but I haven't finished that yet.’

Smyg says:
‘The categories, of course. Without me, this wiki would have been even more unorganised than it is now. Specifically, the image categorisations are something I'm proud of. However, I love all types of general upkeep.’


What administrative work do you intend to take part in?

Joseph Puglisi says:
‘All kinds of general administation and whatever else is needed. I'm very active so I can easily get a lot of things done if given the oppurtunity. Text replaces to get done easier, user-friendly, etc.’

Billy Neil says:
‘I intend to work in the page maintainance and upkeepish part of adminship, deleting unneeded and spam pages and what not.’

Smyg says:
‘Anything that needs help will get help. Maintainance and upkeep is the road to success.’


Have you ever been in conflicts over editing in the past or have other users caused you stress? How have you dealt with it and how will you deal with it in the future?

Joseph Puglisi says:
‘The very few edit conflicts I've seen are easily dealt with by simply talking it out, something which I believe is needed to be done more here.’

Billy Neil says:
‘I probably have clashed with other users, and even admins, before, but I believe all conflicts were resolved using logic and most of the time I have apologized if I have caused anyone any anguish. The same will apply with future events.’

Smyg says:
‘In my opinion, I might have had a minor scrap or two, but it has always worked out in the end. The key is to not get emotionally involved.’


What can you bring to the wiki that is currently absent from the current staff?

Smyg says:
‘What I can offer certainly isn't absent, but the level of basic upkeep and maintainance sure could use a large boost.’

What do you believe to be the regular tasks of an administrator on MicroWiki?
