A Tutor (or a Buddy) is a moderately experienced wiki user, who is familiar with how the community works and the basic conventions of WikiToLearn editing.
Duties of a Tutor[edit | edit source]
A Tutor has several duties.
- Welcoming new users
- Tutors are the first point of contact to the user. They should be sending welcome messages to newly-registered users and offer to help with basic tasks. They are the main point of reference when a user has a problem, and they should be able to point the user to whoever is in charge of a certain area when they cannot solve the problem for themselves.
- Checking logs for spam
- A tutor is familiar with basic tools. He/she is expected to monitor the feed of recent changes, and notify admins in case of problems.
- Bug reporting
- Every tutor should know about Phabricator and other tools used by the working groups and should report every bug found on WikiToLearn.
