Yes.

This would be in line with work being done under the new Wiki Masters program. The USA page could be a subpage, so [[State_Manager/USA]]

It took a bit longer than I had expected; that pesky real life thing kept intruding. Real life is soooooo selfish and demanding sometimes.... :lol:

However, good news, everyone! :mrgreen:

It's finally done! All icons have been updated and I've finalized the instructions on the page. Thanks for being patient while I dealt with this. Enjoy the icons, State Managers!

On a side note: I agree 150% with OrbitC. There's no requirement to be an official Mentor as a criteria to be a SM. Nor should there be.

What about the Mentor Program? Should that also be taken into account in regards to becoming an SM?


Good question. Besides the normal wiki training that we are developing for skillful editors, what WOULD be some good training for a SM candidate? Seems to me this is a behavior of being involved, communicating, coaching, mentoring of lower editors would be expected. Are there other forms of development we can pass on to SM candidates? Not all great rank 4/5 editors would make a good SM.

Editors are not required to mentor in order to become SM.

I made some significant headway last weekend, though it's not quite completed yet. Lots more SM badges now, though.

I hope to have them done by next weekend.

No problem. All of us have a few of these floating around in here.

Thanks for the quick update.
