But the fact that you were able to get to where you are without even having seen this page illustrates what is wrong with the system we have now. Wiki (or forums) exist and these people are Area Managers. This is why we have so many incompetent AMs and even CMs out there.
I do appreciate your kind words, as that is exactly what I try to do. I have had to search hard to find good answers sometimes.
I do agree that the wiki is not in great shape. I see it as disorganized and not streamlined.
This page could be the vehicle where we can point all of the new editors to learn about being an AM. If we are to revise the page, I would think that the following would need to be done in order to do it properly:
I would think we would need to do a thorough search throughout the rest of the wiki to find other areas where this documentation is duplicated and instead place links to this page. This way, this page is the only thing that needs to be updated as the AM process evolves. Furthermore, it would be the sole link where we can point others in the forums.
I think it would be a good idea to keep these ideas in mind whenever we are developing wiki page content. It is frustrating to find conflicting information among various wiki pages.
