Other roles[edit]

Someone slightly more involved with the Bookshelf project than I am may wish to add some of these roles:

  • Checker (or something like that): basically, people who do things like RC patrolling, New Page patrolling, tagging, CSD, category checking, AfD discussion, WP:CHECKWIKI and stuff like that. This isn't really authoring but it is more involved than just reading.
  • People involved in Projects, people who answer stuff on Reference desk and Resource Exchange
  • Policy wonks
  • MediaWiki developers
  • Bot and tool developers: maybe point to examples of this like wikiEd, HotCat, toolserver, citation tools (full disclosure: I'm in the middle of building a new citation tool).
