GuidelinesEdit

  • Users should have helped out the wiki in some way, for example
    • many edits
    • high-quality or high-profile edits
    • project involvement
    • community interaction
    • generally helping out
These are not hard requirements, so if you think a user should be granted the title, nominate them with your reasoning. The title is not meant to be exclusive.
  • Nominees, nominators, and commenters should have a wiki account of at least 2 weeks old
  • Currently blocked users are disqualified from being nominated, including being blocked during the process (this does not necessarily include staff-applied global blocks, as they are hard to track and verify)
  • Nominations should:
    • include a description of why the user should be awarded the title
    • use the usual support/oppose/etc comments with optional reasoning
    • run for one week
  • There is no quota on:
    • The number of wiki users that can receive the title
    • The number of in-game accounts each user can have the title applied to (but be reasonable as it is a manual process)
  • Contributors of the Old School RuneScape Wiki, the RuneScape Classic Wiki, and active non-English RuneScape Wikis are also welcome to be nominated here (assuming they also play RuneScape itself)

These rules were discussed in Forum:The Wikian.

NominatingEdit

To nominate a user, please follow these steps:

  1. Let the user know you wish to nominate them - they may decline, in which case stop here. While it is optional to ask before nominating them, it is better to do so beforehand.
  2. Add the request to the Nominations section of this page using the following format:
----
===NOMINEE===
{{userinfo|links=no|NOMINEE}}

Describe why the nominee should be granted the title. Sign with ~~~~

Account name(s): list the nominee's in-game account(s)

====Discussion====
'''Support''' as nominator. ~~~~
  1. If not asked beforehand, the nominee should make their declination known now
  2. The nominee should fill in their in-game account name(s) in the marked section, or check them if already filled in. Make sure that exact spelling of the name(s) is clear:
    • Take care with similar-looking characters, e.g. I and l (uppercase i, lowercase L), O and 0 (uppercase o, zero), etc. When in doubt, use all lowercase.
    • If the name contains more than one space in a row, use underscores _ for readability.

The request is now ready for general commentary.


CompletingEdit

After a week, an administrator should determine consensus and close the nomination. The discussion should be archived in the current (or a new) archive.

Successful nominations should have the user (and accounts) added to RuneScape:The Wikian/Users, and the current owner of the Wikian book (Gaz Lloyd) notified - remember that both users (the Wikian book user and the successful nominee) have to meet up in-game to grant the title.

I'm a semi-retired admin on paper who made the majority of my edits back in 2006 and 2007, back when the wiki was still young, and a few in the years since. I was mostly involved in anti-vandalism, when vandalism was a far bigger problem back then it is now. Much like Gangsterls, I'm self-nominating mostly because I'm not in contact with as many wikians anymore. Thanks for your time. Huanghe63 (talk) 21:20, February 19, 2017 (UTC)

Support - I think it's important to congratulate someone who has been there on the very beggining of the community. Even if the person is not active anymore, it desevers his part on the history of RSW. Titles icon Maximus Gugu 17:53, February 20, 2017 (UTC)

Full support - Just because his activity was back then instead of now does not mean it was less important. He is also active in the cc and gives good answers to nooby questions. Degenret01 (talk) 13:27, February 20, 2017 (UTC)

We decided against giving half the Events Team the title because they do not edit the wiki. I do not think it should be different here. Their last period of significant editing was around 7 years ago. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png 17:54, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
Didn't he contributed on the beginning of the RSW with edits and stuff? Clearly deserves the title even if he don't edit anymore. Titles icon Maximus Gugu 17:58, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
Then we also have the precedent set at RuneScape:The_Wikian/Archive_2#Casting_Fishes^^ where we disallowed a chat moderator from getting the title because they've been inactive. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png 18:01, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
I wasn't here back in this guy, but I think the title should be given to people who contriuted with the history of the RSW too, even if they don't have the time to do so right now or it's been a couple years since they last edited. This people helped RSW to become what it is today. Titles icon Maximus Gugu 18:08, February 20, 2017 (UTC)
