Because FIRSTwiki is not a traditional wiki, it isn’t easy to allow completely unmoderated content. Instead, there is a team of moderators that will approve contributions.
Who can be a moderator?
FIRSTwiki is still developing, but initially there will be some qualifications for moderators. Here are some initial minimum qualifications.
- Must be involved with FIRST Robotics Programs for at least a year
- Should be a validated ChiefDelphi member who has positive reputation and 300+ posts
As the community grows, these conditions will probably change.
Role of moderators
Moderators are intended to serve the following roles:
- Gatekeepers for FIRSTwiki to ensure that it only receives high quality content
- Be neutral intermediaries in the event of a conflict
A moderator is expected to speedily approve content if it is topical and meets the FIRStwiki standards.
