The Fairy Tail Wiki Policy & Standards Council is a group of users responsible for reviewing and enforcing our policies. They also have the responsibility of maintaining the quality standards of Fairy Tail Wiki articles by helping other users adhere to the policies of the wiki. Their most notable ability, however, is their ability to "rollback" edits. Like Administrators, Councilors have an extra "rollback" link on difference pages and on user contributions lists that lets them revert vandalism faster, without the extra steps of going to the page history and opening an earlier revision.

Currently we aren't looking for any Policy & Standards Councilors. If you wish to become a councilor, or wish to nominate someone else, please apply on the User Rights Requests page. Please also try to provide a supporting statement.

Inactivity Edit

Councilors should remain active to assist the wiki, who has entrusted them with additional user rights.

  • An active status is defined as:
    • Continuing substantial contributions, defined as edits that do not include modifying user space pages, or correcting spelling/grammar/formatting.
    • A steady flow of such contributions, defined as editing on most days each month.
    • Reasonable speed in replying to user talk messages, defined as replying before the poster of the user talk message is forced to make an alternative consultation.
  • Councilors should alert the community to a leave of absence by adding the inactivity template to their user page. The councilors should also mark themselves as inactive on the list of councilors. Leaves of absence may be for any length up to two months.
  • If the councilor continues to be inactive for a prolonged period of time, removal of user rights will be considered by the active bureaucrat. Consideration will begin from when any leaves of absence were meant to finish.

Becoming a Councilor Edit

Main articles: Project:User Rights Requests

In general, the wiki should not have more than four councilors (occasionally five) at once. However, users may always nominate themselves to become a councilor so that they may be considered if a position ever opens. The Chairman/woman of the Policy & Standards Council, under certain circumstances, may have administrative powers but this is temporary.
