Wikipedia:Abuse response/Volunteers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


In general, there are three different levels of volunteers for the Wikipedia abuse response. Each level of participation has specific roles in the project. If you want to help out with the project beyond reporting abuse to us you may nominate yourself at the self nomination form. You can find out more about the roles on the guide to abuse response. Before adding yourself to the list, please nominate yourself for consideration and allow for confirmation by the Wikipedia community. This is required to ensure quality of the reports.

Please sign up for the mailing list once you are on the list.
