Hello, so I was looking at the Content Developers page the other day, after having seen "Ninja team" relatively high up on the search digest, and left a message regarding the state of the page. Apart from easily making former devs into a subpage, and updating the page, I'm still left thinking about how the page can be gone about. Nowadays, as the Jagex team openly communicate with the players, we know much more about the people who make the game, the JMods.

There are pages for (obviously) the [[Template:Jagex Moderators|head JMods]], and there's the Content Dev page. That's it, minimal mentions of the Community Team, and other members of the Ninja Team/MTX team, - with members/notable things etc - but we do have a list of QA mods. A lot of JMods who make content for the game don't purely/primarily have the job title of 'Content Developer', and therefore aren't listed on the page.

Anyway, I thought I'd make this thread to see people's thoughts and brainstorm ideas. Some jumbled ideas from me, to start:

  • Make pages about JMods subpages of Jagex Moderator (Jagex Moderator/Content Developers, Jagex Moderator/Community Team etc)
  • Rename Content Developer to Game Developer, or something. So people like Mod Pi, Mod Kelpie and such can be included.
  • Developer page stay as it's own page, to be split into sections, including - CM Team (maybe? see 2 points below), Ninja Team, MTX team, whatever else. Maybe summary of teams+members (The Guardians, The Dukes, The Watch etc) at top of the page, go into detail of members and developed content further down. An "Other" section for those who don't fit anywhere. H
  • Content/Game Developer stay as it's own page, summarise the teams as in above point, but have the teams as subpages (Game Developers/Ninja, Game Developers/Content or whatever)
  • Point 3, but instead have Community Management as a separate page, as they aren't actually developers.
  • This still leaves out the Customer Support team (and others like the web guys), as well as other artists/audio etc. Sections for them somewhere with a list of names, similar to the QA team list?

Other points

  • Link JMod twitters in their appropriate section?
  • Link JMods to their sections in Quest/Event infoboxes?
  • Mods who leave, with the exception of content devs, wouldn't need to be kept listed under a "former [insert role here]" heading.

Apologies if this is a bit jumbled. Basically there's just a lot of teams and people who work on the game/heavily involved with the community and we mainly only have stuff dedicated for mods who are purely content devs.

Discussion

Support - It looks like you've put a fair amount of thought into this, so I'd say be bold and see how it works. We can always tweak it later if some parts don't work. cqm 09:01, 23 Aug 2015 (UTC) (UTC)

Support - I'd be all in for better documentation of the various JMod teams and their members and projects. It would be tricky to list former JMods in more obscure departments (that is everything bar content and CM) and document the frequent changes in teams though. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Comment - I don't see any reason for pages like Content Developers to be moved to a subpage of Jagex Moderators. I'd much rather they just be left as their own articles. MolMan 20:13, August 23, 2015 (UTC)

Do you have any ideas for the article names (or content dev subpages)? Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 02:47, August 24, 2015 (UTC)
I'd just go with whatever you'd have used but as its own page; e.g., "Ninja Team", "Content developers", "MTX team". MolMan 02:48, August 24, 2015 (UTC)
Any thoughts on this? Section on Jagex Moderator with links to those pages, and then a section somewhere (on Jagex Moderator? on a separate hub page for the links? somewhere else?) with list of names of the JMods who're left out of having their own page because there isn't enough info on them to warrant one (ie. web guys, customer support, whoever else).

I'd just create a section in the JMod article that serves as an index for these pages. We can probably use nested lists to include jmods who are worthy of their own article as well. MolMan 22:43, August 27, 2015 (UTC)

Closed - Be bold and try the suggested improvements. --LiquidTalk 12:27, September 4, 2015 (UTC)
