Policy for trainer activity?[edit]

Does CVUA have a policy regarding activity of trainers on their student's CVUA pages? Many CVUA pages have hardly been updated in months even though students are active and presumably awaiting evaluation of their work. They have to keep notifying their instructor about the CVUA which has led me to suppose that these trainers are hardly taking CVUA seriously, having voluntarily signed up to be one and not even taking responsibility for it. As such, I am thinking that a policy should be in force to ensure that the list of trainers should be active. Any suggestions? <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 22:53, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

I am bringing this issue up as I am concerned that I and Redolta have CVUA pages set up by Music1201 whose contributions have been rather sporadic. All the other CVUA trainers have been much more active recently, which makes me repeatedly question our trainers' ability to take responsibility for his volunteer role in the Academy. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 20:21, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
As a trainer, I completely agree. I'll create a proposal. ThePlatypusofDoom (talk) 21:34, 1 February 2017 (UTC)


Trainers in the CVUA must have edited in the last 3 months to have their names listed at Wikipedia:Counter-Vandalism Unit/Academy/Instructors. If they have not edited in 3 months, a bot will automatically remove their names from the page.

  1. Support as proposer. ThePlatypusofDoom (talk) 21:37, 1 February 2017 (UTC)
  2. Support, but I have a question. Must the edits be CVUA-related, or can they be any kind of edit? Redolta📱 Contribs 18:28, 2 February 2017 (UTC)
 Comment: Permit me to make an amendment to this proposal: that trainers have edited in the last month, in addition to having made at least one edit to a CVUA page in the last three months, in order to remain listed as an active trainer. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 18:54, 2 February 2017 (UTC)

Pinging @Kudpung: to this discussion. <<< SOME GADGET GEEK >>> (talk) 20:06, 23 March 2017 (UTC)
I think this is a reasonable enough proposal but what gives me pause is that something so obvious even needs a discussion. Probably the best solution would be to ping the listed 'Active' trainers to this discussion. Note that this CVUA project is managed by anyone who feels they should take an initiative - the former 'management' group was forced to disband some years ago when it had become more of a MORPG or social network than its specific goal.
