So I would like to be certain that either I have been given that privilege or that it is OK for anybody to edit anybody's articles (by which I mean, major edits).
Anyone can edit a wiki. The main responsibilities of staff editors on this wiki will be to guide contributors, approve changes to existing articles/stubs, proofread and approve new submissions. At least, that is my understanding from Eric's welcome message when I joined the project as an editor.

If this wiki grows as we hope, there will be much work generated for all the staff and community. You've contributed quite a bit already. Please, if you feel that you can fill a need as a staff member, volunteer by sending an email request to the address at the end of THIS article.

That would be nice. It'll be tough but if it happens then great as it will give Slackware plenty of exposure.

I think it is a little much to try and claim that is the only reason. It might be the only reason for you but it is not the only reason for me, nor for plenty of others.

I couldn't handle the uncertainty of "or else", so I've humbly sent my application (can't wait to undergo the rigours of the interview process: I hear the waterboarding is to die for....)

I agree with your comments. I gotta go peace.

Yeah, that was my reason as well but it seems admins are no longer needed.

Yes, I did. I sent an email to the address mentioned by you 11 hours ago. Straight away I received the following:

Ah. I got the same reply when I first applied to be an editor. You have to get on the slackdocs-admin mailing list, here:

http://lists.alienbase.nl/mailman/li...lackdocs-admin

I wonder if all the recent applicants got that reply? Anyway, Eric knows about your applications.

Brian, that is the correct Mailman reply. We still see the email in the admin list, though. Alien Bob or kikinovak will usually reply to them.

The Admin list is private and not accessible by the general public.
