From Fanlore

If you feel a page needs gardener attention add Template:AttentionGardeners to that page or its talk page.

Fanlore Gardeners monitor, clean up and organize content, and generally make sure everything is running smoothly. Gardeners watch the recent changes across the wiki to make sure the content added (or removed) is coherent, appropriate and properly organized. Through this process they also assist other contributors in using the wiki. To continue the metaphor, these Gardeners grow, nurture and weed on the wiki.

Fanlore Gardeners may be contacted by adding Template:AttentionGardeners to the page you need help with. However, you should contact Fanlore Policy & Admin via the contact form if you have a question about Fanlore's policies or how they are enforced, need help with identity protection, or have an issue with another user on Fanlore, including a Gardener or admin. (Select the appropriate topic from the Subject menu. If you select 'Fanlore Policies,' 'Identity Protection,' 'Technical Support,' or 'Other,' your message will reach the Policy & Admin team.)

Want to be a Gardener? Contact the Fanlore committee and we'll follow up with you. Prospective Gardeners should be able to commit to regularly visiting and monitoring the wiki and should have some experience with editing Fanlore.
