Support Staff Columnists
Writers

The staff of Bulbanews are the editors, writers, columnists, and administrative staff who make up the backbone of the wiki. While any registered user may submit a news draft, the Bulbanews staff need to approve the article before it can be published.

Bulbanews has seven staff groups divided into three tiers. Each of these has a different job description and set of Mediawiki tools. The staff members, along with their roles here at Bulbanews, are all listed below.

Editorial staff

Board of editors

The Bulbanews Board of Editors are the highest ranking staff group on the wiki. These individuals have the authority to approve news articles, columns, and opinion articles and to appoint new staff members. They can delete and protect articles, and block problematic users.

evkl Inactive 2004 United States Flag.png United States Bulbagarden Vice-Webmaster
While Bulbanews makes every effort to keep this list updated, this list may contain more recent information.

Technical staff

The technical staff are mainly users who have staff roles on other Bulbagarden sites. These roles are largely analogous to the bureaucrat, administrator, and junior administrator roles on Bulbapedia, however most of the staff here are less than active and have powers to provide Bulbanews with additional support should it require. While these editors are more than welcome to submit news stories, and are encouraged to, they are not the core news staff. Users with an interest in journalism and regular reporting for Bulbanews may find themselves better suited in the Writer or Senior Writer group.

Bureaucrats

Members of the Bulbapedia Editorial Board are assigned the bureaucrat group on Bulbanews. Some former Bulbanews staff members may also be allocated membership of this group. They can edit published articles, move articles, delete articles, protect articles, block users, suppress redirects, change userrights, and lock the wiki to edits by staff members only of all groups below them.

While Bulbanews makes every effort to keep this list updated, this list may contain more recent information.


Administrators

Administrators are mainly senior Bulbagarden staff members who have served staff roles on Bulbanews in the past. They can edit published articles, move articles, delete articles, protect articles, and block problematic users. Bulbanews:Administrators


Support staff

Bulbanews's support staff are users who have staff roles on other Bulbagarden sites, but are not regular writers. They can edit published articles, move articles, and delete vandalized revisions of articles.
