If you feel like you have the ability to maintain the role of staff on the Plants vs. Zombies Wiki, post your resume.

To ask for your promotion, you must ask an administrator or a bureaucrat on their message wall. The request should include:

  • What you have done for the wiki in order to have the rights;
  • Your pros, which must include why you should have the rights;
  • Your cons, which must include your weaknesses (optional).
Note: Any promotion thread which does not fulfill one of the compulsory requirements above will be disqualified.

Promotion rules

  • Begging for support from staff is forbidden.
  • Any user who demotes themselves or were demoted for inactivity can instantly get their rights back with the following requirements:
    • They must be active for at least two weeks in a row, but skipping some days are allowed.
    • They must be active in the designated sections of the wiki during the period, depending on their former rights:
      • Rollbacks must manage the mainspace articles.
      • Discussion moderators must be active in discussions.
      • Moderators must be active on mainspace and/or discussions.
      • Administrators and bureaucrats must be active on on multiple wiki spaces.
  • Once your promotion or request is finished or removed, you must wait a month to get another rank or retry your proposal if it failed, unless you are just skipping a rank.
  • Staff members can have a user demoted instantly without any discussion thread needed if the user is inactive or has proved unworthy of the position, though administrators and bureaucrats may need stricter discussions before the demotion.
  • Only staff's opinions and votes can affect the results. The staff will also agree on the duration of the thread or discussion.
  • You must have a Discord account to have an active communication with the rest of the staff team.

NOTE: All staff ranks besides discussion moderator automatically require that you meet the requirements of the lower ranks as well.
