Fanlore Advanced Editors are experienced editors who have special editing privileges. They are authorized to move and delete pages on Fanlore. Advanced Editors are not official Fanlore volunteers.
How to become an Advanced Editor
Any Fanlore editor can request to become an Advanced Editor by contacting the Fanlore committee. Requests are granted or denied based on the editor's edit history. The applicant's edit history should show substantial contributions to Fanlore to show that they are committed to the wiki and will not misuse their Advanced Editor privileges through hostile editing or deceptive practices.
If the request is granted, new Advanced Editors have two weeks to complete the move and delete page tutorial. This is to make sure that Advanced Editors know how to use their new editing rights correctly. If the tutorial is not completed within two weeks, Advanced Editor rights are revoked, but there are no further consequences.
If the request is denied, applicants will usually receive feedback from the Fanlore committee on what they could do to meet the criteria. They have the option to reapply at a later timepoint.
Yearly Follow-up and Loss of Advanced Editor rights
Advanced Editors will be asked once a year to complete a short poll to affirm that they are still interested in maintaining their status. Editors who do not answer the poll or are no longer interested in being an Advanced Editor will have their status removed.
Advanced Editor rights can be revoked at any time at the discretion of the Fanlore team if they are not used in accordance with Fanlore policies.
