The Feed The Beast Wiki is created and maintained by the efforts of the community. This page describes roles that users can give to themselves or can be appointed to by others.

Contact

The community IRC channel is on EsperNet: #FTB-Wikiconnect

There are a variety ways to bring issues to the attention of the community:

  • Centralized discussion: This is for any and all issues that affect the community in any way. Most issues should be taken here.
  • Translators' noticeboard: This if or any issues relating to translation and multilingualism on the wiki.
  • Administrators' noticeboard: This is for issues and actions that need to be addressed by administrators' and/or bureaucrats, and cannot be tackled by people without these permissions.
  • Bot operators' noticeboard: This is for issues relating to automated wiki processes and bot accounts.

If your issue affects a single page or user, leave a message on the according talk page.

Roles

There are a variety of roles described here. Since roles are largely conceptual, there is no limit to what roles you may ascribe yourself or be given.

  • Bureaucratic red tape: The duties of this role are bureaucratic. This role is limited to those in the bureaucrat and sysop right groups.
  • Editor: The duties of this role are to curate and maintain content articles and templates on the wiki. Since everyone can edit, there is no limit to who is an editor. However, this is a right group, editor, which provides some additional permissions to aid in the mod documentation process. There are too many editors to list here.
  • Translator: The duties of this role are to translate content into non-English languages. Since everyone can translate, there is no limit to who is a translator. Translation projects are listed at Project:TP.
  • Wiki singer: This role is for those who entertain the community by singing on Discord, Teamspeak, and other VoIP services.
  • Web developer: The duties of this role is to maintain our JavaScript and CSS primarily, as other web development is handled by Gamepedia.
  • Mod version updater: The duty of this role is to update the mod versions listed on mod articles in real-time (as they are released).
  • Lua mastermind: The duty of this role is to maintain Lua/Scribunto modules.
  • Translation administrator: The duty of this role is to handle bureaucratic translation mumbo-jumbo. This includes, but is not solely, marking pages for translation.
  • Extension developer: The duty of this role is to handle the development of our custom MediaWiki extensions, like OreDict and Tilesheets.
  • Mod-specific curator: Mod curators handle documenting and maintaining the documentation for specific mods. Anyone can appoint themselves to any mod.
  • Public relations: Public relations handles advertisement and interaction between the modded community at large and our wiki community.
  • FTB Core Team representative: Represent the interests of the community directly (through any kind of open communal decision-making process) to the FTB Core Team. This is an elected role, and the representative can deposed and replaced via voting.

Staff legacy

Before 2017, there was a staff system, in which people were promoted through the wiki hierarchy democratically. Staff were responsible for helping new users, watching for vandalism, etc. However, since this role can easily be filled, in most cases, by the community without the need for democratic leadership and leader appointment, this has been dissolved.

Former staff list

This list is kept for historical purposes. It lists everyone who was previously considered staff. People who were staff, but were de-staffed as a result of the group overhaul (which dissolved the staff system, as mentioned above) are not listed here.

This list is no longer maintained as of the group overhaul of 2017.
