Staff criteria (again)

There are new requirements for becoming a content moderator. They are much more strict than before, you now have to meet the same requirements of becoming a bureaucrat to become a content mod. I do agree with this because I was getting many requests for content mod from users that don't help out much with the main articles. A perfect example of who this position is meant for is somebody like TMNT1987Dude. He has been helping out making edits to the main articles and is using these abilities to delete the ridiculous amount of images we have in episode galleries.

Bureaucrat's are in charge of running the wiki and the position is not meant for everybody. Since we currently have 6 bureaucrats I don't think we will be accepting a promotion request for this position. We only have one admin which I find really strange for how many bureaucrats there are.

From now on I say that if you wish to become an admin, you must first be a content mod so we know what to expect from you when given admin powers. To the content mods that have recently been promoted, now is your chance. Use these powers to help delete the images in episode galleries and limit them to 75 images. This is a slow process and I am not able to be on the wiki all the time. I absolutely love doing what I do here, but I need some assistance.

If you have complaints about me changing the way to become an admin or questions, please comment.

I agree with making the requirements more advanced, as the staff has really been growing. Due to how so many users were able to get this position before the changes, I'm surprised there aren't more rollbacks on the site. I know most of the higher up staff members have the rollback status, but I'm surprised there aren't any users who are just rollbacks. Not to say any names, but I have noticed that some users with miltiple titles seem to spend more time in the chat, than really doing much to contribute, and I'm surprised JeremeCreek isn't part of the staff seeing as how he seems more than qualified. I'm all for the idea of starting off somewhere, before being granted adminship, as it will help new staff to gain experience, and show what they can do. Not to mention some recent events have made it so we need to be more careful about who gets granted any staff positions.

The arbitrariness of position criteria has confused me on this wiki ever since I first joined. Why in the world do users need to meet the criteria of a Bureaucrat (which currently includes the Admin criteria too) in order to qualify for a lower level position? I'm baffled. That's like qualifying for Admin to be a Chat Moderator.

The Bureaucrat position is really only "in charge" of user rights (not even all of them for that matter). Do realize that Bureaucrat and Admin are entirely separate positions. Most Bureaucrats are also Admins (same here). That being said, there are more Bureaucrats than needed.

This is what I plan to fix. I would like to leave the requirements for becoming a content mod as is. The only requirement for admin would to be a content mod for one-two months so we know what to expect from you. Elections would also be required for adminship. As far as bureaucrats go, seeing how many we have I don't think we will be accepting anyone for this position for some time.

I have made the changes to the criteria. For the time being, the bureaucrat requirements are more of a placeholder since I think no matter what we won't be accepting this role anytime soon.

Please leave any questions, comments, or concerns here.

That seems about right to me.
