The project coordinators are generally responsible for maintaining all of the procedural and administrative aspects of the project, and serve as the designated points-of-contact for procedural issues. They are not, however, endowed with any special executive powers.

The Lead Coordinator (one open position) bears overall responsibility for coordinating the project; the Coordinators (four open positions) aid the Lead Coordinator and focus on specific areas that require special attention.


From Wikipedia:WikiProject Christianity/Coordinators:

The primary responsibility of the project coordinators is the maintenance and housekeeping work involved in keeping the project and its internal processes running smoothly; this includes a variety of tasks, such as keeping the announcement and open task lists updated, overseeing the assessment and review processes, managing the proposal and creation of task forces, and so forth. There is fairly little involved that couldn't theoretically be done by any other editor, of course—in only a few places have the coordinators been explicitly written into a process—but, since experience suggests that people tend to assume that someone else is doing whatever needs to be done, it has proven beneficial to formally delegate responsibility for this administrative work to a specified group. The coordinators also have several additional roles. They serve as the project's designated points of contact, and are explicitly listed as people to whom questions can be directed in a variety of places around the project. In addition, they have highly informal roles in leading the drafting of project guidelines, overseeing the implementation of project decisions on issues like category schemes and template use, and helping to informally resolve disputes and keep discussions from becoming heated and unproductive. The coordinators are not, however, a body for formal dispute resolution; serious disputes should be addressed through the normal dispute resolution process.

Some more specific examples of day-to-day coordinator work can be found here.

Voting is now concluded.

Comment: Tinucherian opted to be Assistant Co-ordinator and nominated John Carter for the role of Lead Co-ordinator.

John Carter[edit]

John Carter (talk · contribs)

I have been somewhat active with Wikipedia:WikiProject Saints and a few of the other Christianity WikiProjects. My strengths, such as they are, are primarily in assessment, review, portal development and maintenance, and working on templates as required. I consider myself somewhat knowledgable about several areas of Christianity, but I hope others would say that I don't have such a high opinion of myself that I would place my own opinions before those of individuals who are more knowledgable about the particular subject in question.

Comments and questions for Tinucherian[edit]

  • Tinucherian has been very active in the project and recently spearheaded a campaign to fight the backlog of unassessed articles.
