Bach's Special Training Services

All varieties of training and help offered from moving up the ranks of the Admin team to coding to general wiki editing related stuffs...
Notice: I have been given permission by Brock, Wonder, Slay and Demi to make this page and to offer training services to all users for all things. I may not be a Crat currently or an Admin, but I've been one long enough in the past to be able to train someone else to fill the roles :) Also this page is a massive WIP!

General Training Packages Offered
Becoming an Official Helper:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

Are you looking to become an official wiki helper? Do you want some training first to be sure you know everything you need to? Sign up for Official Helper training (honestly it's not too hard, the really hard position is admin ;) ) You should know, the only thing you can do as an Official Helper that you can not do as a Regular Level Five user is comment on claims. It can also help give you an idea if you'd like to eventually get onto the Admin team. Like testing the waters.

1 0 Actively Offering. Anyone taking this class will receive the same prizes as the admin team training program
Becoming a Rollback:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

Have you ever dream about joining the admin team? Well going for RB is the way to start! In this class you learn the ways of wikia as well as maneuvering yourself to becoming a well respected admin team member. Anyone can take it even if your already an Rb cause as Dr Seuss once said “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.” You also do not have to be an official helper first, but being an official helper can give you a better idea what to expect on the Admin Team and help you to be sure it's something you want. After completing training you should be able to confidently check claims, be proficient with all the rules and policies and be able to aid the Admins and Crats in running the wiki.

Becoming an Admin:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

Admin training is much different from that of RB. Obviously first you have to already be a rollback before you can even think about running for Admin. There is more required for Admins. You have to be willing to lead others, be proactive about projects and work you do. By the time you are Admin you shouldn't just sorta know the policies, you should be able to recite them. You should set a standard for all users. By the end of this class you should know the policies forwards and backwards, you should be confident in not just being on the wiki, but striking out and taking risks, running events, help to mould the future of the wiki.

Becoming a Crat:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

This is the last stop for Admin Team training, the highest position one can be granted. This position may be stressful and hard yet this training is meant to make it easier for you to tackle the position. You may think to yourself never in a million years would you go for Crat, but life is short and what's the worse that would happen? For Donald Trump once said “If you’re going to be thinking anything, you might as well think big.” Being a Crat isn't just about doing the work, it's about having passion and love for the wiki. It's about having a vision for where you'd like to see the Wiki go. It's about wanting to lead users and help them reach their full potentials. Crats are the guiding hands of the Wiki, they lead by example, they fight for the rights of the users. They are like a combination of your parent and your boss. They need to be stern yet caring, firm but willing to compromise when necessary. They need to have ideas how to keep the wiki running, while not overlooking the ideas that users under them may have themselves. Being Crat is a real balancing act.

Basic Wiki Editing Skills:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

In this course you’ll learn not just about ways you can aid the Admin Team as a regular user, but also basic wiki functions and editing techniques. You'll learn the do's and don'ts of editing basics, what's ok to do, what's not, what just plain isn't done on this wiki. At the end of this class you should have a good grasp on the knowledge of how to edit on a wiki beyond roleplaying and making characters.

2 0 Actively Offering. This is generally a short class that shouldn't take more than a few sessions.
HTML/Basic Coding and Template Making Help:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

Hearing the word 'coding' you may cower away in fear, as you start to imagine all sorts of intricate complicated things that you couldn't possibly ever grasp. Some of it may be difficult, but nothing is impossible with a bit of effort and a dash of assistance, which I am here to provide. By the end of this class you should be comfortable with filling in wiki templates, making your own templates, using tags such as: <span> and <div>. You should have a basic idea of how css works. You should be able to change fonts easily. You may even be able to design your own user and character page styles.

6 0 Actively Offering. Heads up, I suck at js so I will not be covering js and I will only be doing css basics.
All-Encompassing Roleplay Help:
Description # Currently Enrolled # Completed Status of Class/Notes

Roleplaying is the easiest activity to do here. All you need is a claimed character and a partner and you can start roleplaying. Though maybe you want to do more complex plots than you've been doing, maybe you want to be a stronger fighter, maybe you want to do quests but don't know where to begin. This class covers the entire scope of roleplay, not just fighting, but every day meet and greets, romance roleplays, creating in depth plots, creating quests and carrying them out. Anything that has anything to do with roleplay will be covered.

Signing Up for Training
Read First:

Notice: To ask for training/sign up, you may comment here on this page, though to be completely sure that I receive the request, I'd prefer if you messaged my talk page. I will keep a list here of who's currently being trained, for what and who's trained in the past. If you complete a training program with me in preparation to run for a position on the Admin Team, the prizes apply that you'd get on the other training program, the difference being I will not receive any type of prize, reward or incentive per user I train as that would not be fair as I intend to train as many as possible that I have time for, sometimes multiple users at once. I am not completely doing this for free, every 6 to 12 months I actively train users and show proof for the effort, I will get one prize.

Bach's Training Schedule
These are the hours that I am available to train, if there is a spot free please message me via Wiki, Skype (BachLynn23) or Email (BachLynn23@gmail.com) to sign up for a spot available. If you have signed up for one and will be unable to train, please let me know so that I can see if someone else would like to use the spot. If no one is signed up for a time, I will still leave myself available then juts in case someone wants some training that they hadn't planned ahead for. All times are Eastern Standard Time (UTC-4). This doesn't mean if the time isn't on here it can't be negotiated, this is just a general idea to make sure that you guys have an idea when I have free time and may not feel as intimidated to ask me.

General tips, ideas, help, lists, etc

Notice: I plan to fill this space with general tips, important links, ideas, etc...

Pages to Help You Help the Wiki Keep Organised
These are pages on this wiki that list you to various things that need to be either fixed, updated, altered, deleted, created, etc. These are types of things that are needed on all wikis, not specific to roleplay wikis. These are things that just keep the wiki generally organised and do not directly relate to activities or roleplay. These are things that are generally not a priority here, but that doesn't mean they don't need to be done eventually, it just means don't ignore things like claiming, roleplay, activities or keeping the user/char lists updated to do these things.
List of Broken Redirects:

The pages listed on this page are old redirect pages that now link to deleted pages. The old redirect pages need to be deleted. If you are not an Admin or Crat, you can mark the pages with {{Delete|'''reason for deletion'''}} and someone will delete them later.

List of Double Redirects:

These are pages that have been moved more than once, because of this it has created a chain of redirecting. The original pages (first column in the list) need to be edited and redirect changed to the newest page in the chain of redirects (the last column in the list). This makes sure that redirecting stays smooth.

Categories Without Categories:

These are category pages that do not have categories on them.

Pages Without Categories:

These are regular mainspace pages that do not have categories on them.

Files Without Categories:

These are files (images and videos) that do not have categories on them, this is always a huge list because people rarely remember to or bother to add categories to files, a list of what types of image categories there is to add is here.

Templates Without Categories:

These are templates that do not have categories. An idea of what Templates can get for categories (besides the user category that owns the template) is here.

Categories Not in Use

These categories are no longer in use and need to be deleted or marked with {{Delete|'''Not in use on any page'''}} if you do not have delete privileges.

Files/Images Not in Use

These Files/Images are no longer in use and need to be deleted or marked with {{Delete|'''Not in use on any page'''}} if you do not have delete privileges.

Templates Not in Use

These Templates are no longer in use and need to be deleted or marked with {{Delete|'''Not in use on any page'''}} if you do not have delete privileges. However, it is important to note, that just because a template is not in use does NOT mean it should be deleted per se. It requires common sense and user discretion to decide what is important and what is not. A word bubble of a user who left that never used the template should be deleted, a power template for a god parent currently not in use should be kept just in case. These are just a few examples, if you are unsure of something, always ask.

Videos Not in Use

These Videos are no longer in use and need to be deleted or marked with {{Delete|'''Not in use on any page'''}} if you do not have delete privileges.

Needed Categories

These are categories that have yet to be created but that have been added to the bottom of active pages. Just because it is listed here, doesn't necessarily mean it /has/ to be created. Someone may have just spelled a category wrong (Character instead of Characters with an S at the end). Spelling and capitalisation is VERY important when it comes to category names.

Red-linked Pages

Pages are often deleted on this wiki, that also often leaves the wiki with lots of unintentional red links. A red link is when someone linked to a page link example but then the page was deleted deleted page example. In order to fix this anywhere that page was linked, needs to be unlinked (remove the [[]]'s that turn it into a clickable link).

Red-linked Files/Images

These are files that have either been deleted but their links not removed, or someone just randomly added file links to images that they never uploaded (some users put "WIP" where a file name should go, which creates a red link situation). Links need to be removed or pictures uploaded.

Red-linked Templates

{{User:BelladonnaTook/Scroll5

These are Templates that have either been deleted but their links not removed, or someone just randomly added the Template:'s for a template but never created the template in question. This could happen if a user intends to make the template at some point later on but has yet to do so. These links either need to be removed or the template's created.

Pages With Interesting Info
These are pages you can use to find information about the state of the wiki, what are the longest pages, the shortest pages, who are all the users who have ever edited here, that sort of thing.
List of Longest Pages on the Wiki:

This list organises the pages on the wiki from largest to smallest.

List of Oldest Pages:

This list organises the pages on the wiki from oldest page to created to newest page created.

Pages With Fewest Revisions:

This list organises the pages starting at the top with the pages that have been edited the fewest times on the wiki.

Pages With no Images:

These are pages that do not have any images on them.

List of Protected Pages:

These are pages that for whatever reason have been locked so that only Admins or Crats may edit them.

List of Short Pages:

This list organises the pages on the wiki from shortest page to longest page. This is VERY important if this wiki applies for Spotlight because any pages under 300 bytes can keep the wiki from getting spotlight approval. A few are allowed, but it should be a VERY small percentage of the overall page count on the Wiki.

Tags Report Page:

This keeps track of some of the most commonly used wiki tags (<createbox>, <dpl>, <gallery>, <mainpage>, <poem>, <poll>/ <slider>, <slideshow>, <verbatim>, <watch> and <youtube>) and will tell you where they are in use on the wiki.

Special Pages This Wiki Doesn't Use
These are pages that we do not really have a use for on this Wiki and why.
List of Dead End Pages:

These are pages that do not have any links anywhere on the pages. This isn't important because as we are not an Encyclo wiki, linking to other pages on every single page isn't a priority. It can't hurt, but it isn't something that needs to be done either.

Orphaned Pages:

This lists pages on the wiki that are not linked anywhere. In some ways this list could be handy, because one has to ask yourself, if this page isn't linked anywhere on the wiki, is the page really that important. If the page that doesn't link anywhere is a character page, that can indicate that the user has not roleplayed that character at all and possibly not even made a word bubble for them. Perhaps it's an abandoned bedroom page of a character that was deleted, but it also gets a lot of pages that never get linked on pages and that's claims, because of that this list can be very hard to sort through, and the benefit isn't really worth the effort.

No Inter Wiki Languages:

This page means jack to us because we are not an encyclo wiki so we do not link to other wikis on the same topic in a different language.

Pages not Followed/Watched

These pages are ones that not users are getting watched/followed updates on via emails.
