Clarity reviews for proposed "GLR Roles" wiki page requested

Postby TerryPurdue » Mon Sep 19, 2016 5:25 pm

There is now a draft GLR Roles wiki page up.

Before we that page is promoted into the official GLR wiki, we'd like to offer the Region's editors a chance to review for clarity (both the image and text).

Thanks!

Thanks Terry. I would like clarification on the LAM role. Does it involve simply managing a large area, or is there more to it? The forum post got linked in your wiki doesn't really describe it, but the posts from last year in Ohio and Wisconsin do, although they both allow for change in the definition

I would reword the second bullet under Notes. The first sentence is clear, but with the second sentence it leaves it unclear about what other roles can be held simultaneously. At a minimum, I would add "For example, " to the beginning of the second sentence.

The "Role Progression Diagram" has LC as R6, but the text below LC lists R5 as a prerequisite.

Also, is it true that an R5 can become CM, but you need to be R6 for RC/ARC? That seems backwards to me since there are multiple regions within the country.

I would propose the wording to be changed on any role that requires a champ vote to be changed from "The editor must have a Champ nominate them for consideration for [ROLE] by the full group of US Champs." Replace with "The editor must have a Champ nominate them for consideration of [ROLE] to be voted on by the full group of US Champs."

Fair point; we don't have a great writeup anywhere on the LAM role yet.

Lonewolf147, SM-WI, is working on a writeup. Once we it's ready, we'll post it for review as we did with this page.

Thanks!

The Notes sections is updated to better show that it's an example case.

The LC entry has been updated to show that R5 CM is a prerequisite to be considered, and that R6 is granted upon successful promotion to LC.

  • The SM role has been updated to show that SM, ARC, and RC are the only three roles who manage editors
  • The CM role has been updated to specifically say that CMs only "manage" the map, they do not manage editors.
  • The Region Management section has been moved to the bottom section to show that the roles within are only available to Champs
Thanks!

All instances of the "nomination" wording updated accordingly.

1) I would consider in the diagram, under "Editors", (R1-R6). This would just make it consistent with the other blocks and indicate that an Editor is of any Rank.

2) Under LAM: Add "notes" bullet so that that it is consistent with the other roles. Would possibly just be something about the expiration or other point.

3) Under Global Champ: Same as LAM, add notes bullet to be consistent.

4) ARC: Same as above, add notes bullet to be consistent

5) RC: Same as above, add notes bullet to be consistent

6) Question more than anything else, is R3 automatic based on points as a prerequisite to then getting AM or can an R2 be promoted earlier without having achieved the points for an R3 automatically?

Thanks!


Going along with #6, do you have to be an R3 or is there leeway on that promotion.

And to answer part of your question Mark, R3 is automatic but it is not unheard of to be promoted to R3 early. R4+ you need approval to rank up.

Thanks again Terry for the guide!

The following is true for all editor ranks:

  • The (Assistant) Regional Coordinator may promote editors in their region who have not reached the suggested edit count for an editing rank
  • Conversely, attaining the suggested edit count for an editing rank does not guarantee automatic promotion; RCs may defer/delay promotions
Here are just a few things which may improve the chances of promotion for an editor. Note this is just a sampling, it should not be considered comprehensive.

  1. Completing one or more Formal Mentoring engagements
  2. Outstanding contributions while participating in a MapRaid
  3. Taking lead on, or participating in, in one of the numerous "special projects" that are being worked on within the region

Note that we will be keeping this thread open until Monday, 2016-10-03, 1:30pm EDT/5:30pm UTC.

We'd love to get as many suggestions that improve clarity/readability as we can, so please submit before then.
