Angry Hearts is a Bureaucrat
A bureaucrat is a user, in addition to performing Administrator duties, helps with the administration of the wiki by establishing the wiki rules and managing user rights.
Angry Hearts is an Adminstrator
An administrator is an enforcer of the wiki's policies, taking an active role in resolving disputes and combating vandals. She has a number of abilities to aid her in this task, such as protecting pages and blocking users. Please use the Ask the Staff board her message wall, or chat with her if you need her help.
ღ Hello lovely person, I'm Angry Hearts and I am currently an administrator here ღ If you need any help here with anything, leave me a message and I will respond as soon as possible.♥

Hello Hearts, I hope everything is well with you. During my leave of absence I took some time to reflect over what was working well on the wiki and what wasn’t working so well. I habe come to the realization that the staff on this wiki could be working more as a team rather than individual units as we have tended to do in the past. The way we were running worked just fine as this wiki was smaller, even 1 year ago, but now that the wiki has grown and become larger, with there inherently being drama, I believe it is only fair to change with the times.
As a result, I have decided that the best way to operate is to hold monthly staff meetings, which will essentially be an updated version of the old administrator meetings, although these meetings will take place in the forums. Each meeting will run as follows: the head bureaucrat (me) will begin the meeting with an introduction of any pressing wiki matters and essentially provide an outline of what needs to be discussed in the meeting. Then, each staff member must respond that they are present within 48 hours to show that they are present. If they fail to do so, they will be considered absent. Being absent for three monthly meetings in a row will result in a demotion, although for this system to function properly I highly encourage you to attend every meeting.
After 48 hours or after everyone states that they are present, the actual meeting will commence, beginning with everything the head bureaucrat outlined. This will primarily consist of voting. Matters such as unblocking users and new rule implementation will be discussed in this manner. New staff positions will still be decided in chat among only administrators while many less serious matters will continue to be left to the entire community to vote on I will explain how exactly this voting procedure will work later on in this message.
After the first stage is complete, any other staff members are free to bring up any issues they feel are necessary to discuss and this will play out similarly to stage 1, with each staff member having complete control of the meeting (although the head bureaucrat may intervene if necessary) until they are finished, and then the next staff member may begin talking and so on. Any other bureaucrats will have control, than any non-bureaucrat administrators, then content moderators and rollbacks, then discussion moderators and chat moderators, then social media managers. When multiple users have the same position, whoever has held that position for the longest will go first. When the meeting has finished, the head bureaucrat will close the meeting with a summary of all the decisions made.
Rather than only involving administrators, I believe it is in the wiki’s best interest to include all staff members, including social media managers, content moderators, and any other positions we may have in the future. These meetings will comprise most of the wiki’s meetings among staff members from now on in order to ensure that all staff members have a say rather than just administrators. However, the Instagram administrator group-chat will still function for pressing matters that cannot wait until these meetings occur at the beginning of each month. In addition, when selection new staff members, solely administrators will still meet in the wiki’s chat.
For now when it comes to voting, all staff members besides administrators will have 1 vote, while administrators will have 1.5 votes. This is to preserve the fact that administrators have some sort of final say, being the most experienced users on the wiki, without becoming overly powerful. In order for a vote to pass a simple majority (51% support the vote) is required, except for unblocking a user, where 75% supporting staff members is required.
Keep in mind that this is a VERY early, rough draft of the staff meetings and I anticipate them changing a lot over time in order to adapt to the wiki’s needs. If you have any questions or suggestions, please let me know so that the staff meetings can function the best as possible. Normally, staff meetings will take place at the beginning of each month. However, since I needed some time to figure out all of the details, the first staff meeting will be taking place on January 13. I hope to see you there!
Considering the way you just acted towards Mars, I don't think so. I was thinking of giving you a chance, but I also just blocked a suspicious sock sounding account of yours on Flipline. Also, I don't do unblock requests on wikis that aren't on Community Central. :-)
I'm an admin and founder at the official Alessia Cara Wikia. (https://www.alessiacara.wikia.com). I have a fairly small Wikia and would love to affiliate with you. personally, I love both singers, and if you are interested in doing so then please let me know. :)
First and foremost, I love your wiki’s design! However, I actually created an Alessia Cara wiki 2 years ago at https://alessia-cara.wikia.com and it has more content and users. If you’d like, you can transfer the content from yours as well as the design, which is much better than mine, and I can make you an admin at my wiki.
Hello, do you happen to have an Instagram that you’d feel comfortable using to hold discussions in Instagram rather than have administrator meetings in the wiki chat? If not, could you make one using your username here? It would be a lot easier to have discussions there instead of trying to all meet at the same time on the wiki chat.
Dang, sorry I actually don't. I've stopped getting messages notifications from this wiki for some reason. I'm not sure if I have time for Instagram anymore. Could you suggest something else? I can still stick around in wiki chats though.
Hey there. I'm so sorry for being gone for so long. I'm preparing to graduate in a few months, and AP caught up with stuff personally.
I think we gotta regulate this better by possibly adding to it. Straight up spam comments aren't okay, and a comment that draws away from the topic of the article should be deleted. Or, if they started arguments that incite bullying of any sort.
