One of the essential groups in our community is the WikiTree Rangers. These are the members who take responsibility for protecting our free, shared tree in one or more hour-long shifts per week.
We need a Ranger on duty 24-7.
It doesn't take your full attention. You can do other things during your shift. You just need to check some key activity feeds every 10 minutes or so. If you spot a "forest fire," you report it.
We don't have a lot of big problems. Most Rangers don't spot anything worrisome. It's just that some problems can get much bigger if they're not stopped right away. That's why we need one member in charge of watching our tree around the clock.
The hard part about getting coverage is the coordination. You need to be there for your shift every week, or let someone know you can't make it.
If this interests you, see if you meet the requirements:
- At least three months of experience on WikiTree.
- A minimum of 1,000 contributions.
- Membership in one or more other projects.
- One hour to spare on the same day most weeks.
- Do not currently have a Referral badge and have not had one within the last 3 months.
