Wikifunctions:Apply for editing

From Wikifunctions

There are two new types of advanced-rights user-groups in Wikifunctions: Functioneers and Maintainers. The short-descriptions of each user-right are within Special:ListGroupRights, and there is more detailed context at mw:Help:Wikifunctions/User rights.

Other roles with respective user group rights can be requested on the Requests for user groups page.

Limited function editing during early access

During the first few months of Wikifunctions existence as a production-wiki, the access to creating and editing Object-pages will be limited to an initially small, but steadily growing number of trusted editors, as described in our initial deployment plans.

This is needed because there is a lot of uniquely complex software behind this project, and we want to make sure it is secure and scalable, both for users, and also for the developers in other teams who are supporting the related backend Services.

Permissions during this testing-period will be temporary (~6 months). Once this testing-period is over, the approval process will be run by the community. Processed requests are archived.

Requests for early access to function editing

Please add your username below to be on the list for approval. The development team will steadily approve new accounts as the system successfully scales with that growth. We will try to roughly follow the order of requests, but we might prefer community members in good standing.

Note: we are slowly giving out user rights for now, in order to watch for irregularities. Apologies for being so cautious!

  • I would like to help contribute to this effort in various ways, including adding / editing functions, as well as helping with backend features where possible (found my way here via Denny's posts in the Future of Coding community) Jryans (talk) 15:29, 9 August 2023 (UTC)

  • I have more experience with other sites using mediawiki. Although I will not be very active here, I still want to participate in the construction here. 星海子 (talk) 08:18, 24 August 2023 (UTC)
