UPD: APPLICATION PERIOD IS CLOSED!

Join the World of Warships Wiki Team!

The World of Warships English Wiki Team is recruiting!

What is the World of Warships Wiki?

World of Warships Wiki is a large encyclopedia that contains valuable information about basically every aspect of our game. Whether you'd like to know the information about the features of ships of particular nations and types, check their characteristics, learn more about in-game mechanics or economics, get acquainted with a vast and constantly expanding list of activities and content presented in the game - this is just the right place for you!

Examples of useful pages: 

What does The World of Warships English Wiki Team do?  

The Wiki Team is an independent group of players (wiki editors) who create and maintain the WoWs wiki. This involves:

  • Evaluating the performance of new ships and writing about it
  • Recommending ship builds
  • Researching and writing the history of ships
  • Tracking changes to ships
  • Explaining rules and game mechanics
  • Updating rules and game mechanics when something changes
  • Reviewing the work of others
  • Obtaining and inserting relevant images
  • Patrolling the wiki (an open document) for vandalism and low-quality edits

 

What is required of a wiki editor?

Above all, the ability to write high-quality English prose. There is no fixed requirement for participation, but an editor is expected to complete a minimum of one article or significant contribution per month. 

What are the benefits? 

  • Knowledge that you are helping your fellow players
  • You get to learn new stuff about the game
  • Access to test ships for playtest on your main account
  • A press account for research
  • ‘Volunteer’ flags
  • A forum tag so people will know how special you are
  • Reward items, including, for seasoned editors, Alabama VL
  • An active Discord server where we have a lot of fun just hangin’ with each other

 

Where’s the application?

Click here.   

You will be asked to provide a writing sample.  You don’t have to complete the application all at once; a link will be sent to the email address you provide that will let you update or complete it later. 

Good luck and fair seas!

Threw my hat into the ring. I think it would be fun to give the new ships my particular brand of military turns of phrase.

I'm glad the underpaid and over-worked wiki-staff is recruiting.
Good luck, now and in the future.  :-)

WARNING !

Once you upload the ship evaluation file, you can't change it. 

You can change everything else, though.  Just be careful with The Big One.

Is there a date when applications close?

Nothing specific.  We're playing it by ear.  I could close it now.  We have lots of applications.  But anything less than a couple weeks seems unfair.

If you're willing to make a life commitment to scribing the wiki, I'll buy you that outfit.  And stand.

 

 

Tonsure is not optional, btw.

I'm applying myself towards more profitable ventures.  :cap_tea:
Volunteers don't get pay. 
Though, they do get "street-cred", experience they can put on a résumé, possibly a good reference, some personal networking, and a sense of satisfaction for a job well done.  :cap_horn:

By the way, if there were any mud on my paws, it might be from moonlighting as a muckraking investigative reporter who could put the fictional character, named Penny Parker, to shame.  :Smile_glasses:
Or it might be that you simply made-up the claim of muddy paws out of imaginary 'whole cloth', eh?

These certainly don't look like duck tracks.

 

 

Hmmm.  I supposed it could be my clan brothers.
