Question 1) What is your In-game Username?
Question 2) What is your Discord Username/ID(example:Peripheral#5348)?
Question 3) What is your age?
Question 4) Have you ever been blocked from the wiki, or received any other infraction relating to Redemption?
Question 5) What languages do you speak?
Question 6) Write a brief introduction about yourself.
I am currently a student; I have finished a physiology and neurobiology degree with a food science minor, and am getting a second degree in medical laboratory sciences. I first played Redemption in 2018 when it was still Dreamscape, took a long break, and have recently started playing again. Each time I have played, the wiki has been a key resource in allowing me to progress; I would like to help in updating this resource for all the players of this community in hopes of helping others as much as I have been helped.
Question 7) How many hours in a week do you think you can be available editing the wiki?
1-3 hours/day on weekdays, more on weekends. I'm pretty flexible and always get the work assigned to me done in a timely manner.
Question 😎What do you think are wiki editor responsibilities? Name at least three.
1. Keep wiki pages up to date, grammatically correct, and user friendly (clean formatting, links to related articles)
2. Pay attention to the discord channel #wiki-suggestions and add/update relevant pages that are suggested
3. Ensure the wiki is updated in a timely manner following major updates so that players can navigate the new content without any issues
Question 9) If you were accepted as a Wiki Editor, do you think you would have more "power" than any other player or donator? Explain why.
Definitely not, being a Wiki Editor is a way of giving back to the community, not a position of power over others.
Scenario 1 - Are there any mistakes in this picture? If so, tell us why and what you would do to improve it.
1. It is a mage helm, not ranged
2. It is part of the early game crystal set, not "one of the best"
3. It can be obtained from the Voldemort raid, Trinity (Sponsor+), and Warfare/2K20 boxes. It can also be bought for 3,500 raid points at the Raid Rewards Shop at ::shops
4. Grammatical error "It. Is dropped by the Sea Troll Queen". --> "It is dropped by the Sea Troll Queen"
Example edit. The Crystal Helm is an early game mage helm, which is part of the [Crystal set]. It can be upgraded into the [Eternal Crystal Helm] in ::upgrade at a 20% chance. This set can be obtained in the [Voldemort] raid, [Trinity] (for Sponsors+), or from [Warfare]/[2K20] boxes. It is also available for 3,500 raid points at the [Raid Rewards Shop] at ::shops.
Brackets indicate a hyperlink to the related page
Scenario 2 - You are shown an example of what a Hyperlink is, and how to use it. Your Manager asks you to fix this page so that it correctly links to the Sea Troll Queen page. Which picture is more correct? A) or B) or C)? And why?
B) is the best choice. It provides the relevant information without wasting time with excess, irrelevant information.
Scenario 3 - You have to leave the Wiki temporarily for a few days/weeks. Who are you going to tell and where are you going to post it?
I would inform the Wiki Manager, Peripheral, via Discord and provide a brief reason and expected return date. I would also ensure any work I had been assigned beforehand is either completed or accounted for before taking my break.
Scenario 4 - You are creating a page but you know you need to get off to get some sleep. So you save that page knowing it is not finished or that it has a bunch of mistakes. Is there anything you would do before you went to sleep?
I would save it to finish the next day, without publishing it; I would never publish unpolished work that may provide false information. If the page is time sensitive, I would finish it before sleeping, or contact a fellow editor and ask if they would be available to do it for me, in exchange for helping them another time.
Scenario 5 - If someone in-game asked YOU, (who is now a Wiki Editor) a question that you didn't know and began calling you names like, "You should know this, you're a wiki editor", or "You're not a helper, keep quiet" or "Do your job already, the wiki isn't being updated", how would you respond?
I would let them know being a Wiki Editor does not mean that I know everything about the server, however I will do my best to find the answer for them and to update the page as soon as possible.
Scenario 6 - You see another wiki editor vandalizing the wiki. There are many things you can do. Name at least three.
1. Take screenshots as evidence and send them to the Wiki Manager, as well as an admin who is currently available.
2. Reach out to the Wiki Editor vandalizing the wiki and see if the issue can be resolved easily
3. Keep note of all affected pages and help to restore them to the correct information ASAP
Scenario 7 - One day a wiki editor that you've known for awhile asks you that they need your password in-game to borrow an item for the wiki. Choose the letters that you would do? C) Report them privately.
E) Provide them alternative ways to get that item.
Thanks for considering my application!
