Inactivity and Demotions

After prolonged periods of inactivity (between 3 and 6 months), staff members may be demoted from their positions without notice or receive a notice that they may be demoted; if they resume their wiki activity regularly, they may be allowed to return to their positions.

Staff members are regarded as trusted editors, so if a staff member presents irresponsible behavior or violates the wiki's rules, a demotion may be considered depending on the violation and its severity. Members demoted for rule violations and/or irresponsible behavior will need to wait some time before re-applying for their position and prove to the administration that they have improved their behavior.

Staff members can resign from their positions, or request to be demoted to a lower position, if they wish.
