    I'm just curious, but why isn't the wiki setup or available for public edits? 

    Wouldn't it be better if the wiki was open for editing by any player in the Torn community? For an example, I tried to add something I thought was important to the wiki a long time ago, and gave up when I realized I couldn't make any edits or that it would be a pain in the ass to contact someone else to make the change. Instead of relying on a few contributors, letting everyone have the power to contribute when they have something to add could make the wiki an extremely useful tool, while the current wiki staff could act as moderators correcting information or making revisions as appropriate instead of being the only people adding any value to the wiki.

    What kind of red tape is there? Like on the weapons page you have a basic write up on stat ranges but I don’t see one on the armor page. 


    If someone like me were to write up a basic gist of armor values would that be acceptable? Considering I trade in weapons and armor it’s what I pay attention too, but would not want to see anything misconstrued as for profit.


    For me that’s always the biggest deterrent for applying for anything. Committee, staff, helper, wiki, etc. I really want to be sure no one can say I crossed a line and jeopardize my several years playing. Whereas anything I write in the forums now is just from a player to player and no position of influence.

    Open access would allow for a considerable amount of griefing and/or considerable moderating work for "official" contributors or Staff who are simply volunteering their spare time. 

    If you have a minor issue to report, it really isn't too much trouble to:

    - contact a contributor

    - post in this thread

    I'm not sure what you mean in terms of red tape. The idea of the wiki is just to put information out there and should have nothing to do with personal profits, I can't really see how it would if what you're writing is objective. 

    As for the armor page, perhaps it needs a PM to discuss further but this page does have the ranges for each Armor. If I'm misunderstanding please PM me about it.

    I can write about scams (not how to avoid them or anything, as that'd be t&g shit) but as an "anti scam enthusiast" I can definitely teach noobs a thing or two about this torn!

    Thoroughly enjoy explaining the wonders of torn city to the new ones, thats the reason why i held at level 12. Quite active on torn too, i do think that i keep up with all the news on torn, so imma apply for this

    I do use the wiki a lot to cross reference some torn guides when im on my tutorial&guides forum thread binge, i could say that despite my under a year age, im very familiar with how torn city works.

    I would like to apply

    As a restart I have 11 years of experience on the game. So I've built an account from an inexperienced 13 year old stand point, and as an experienced 21 year old. Using the game mechanics to sky rocket my new account from day 1. I've learned many lessons on torn from ethics (don't cheat) to being a competitive legit player. I know I don't know everything about Torn but I feel as though I could teach anyone to become a competitive player. Which must count for something when it comes to being a wiki contributor. Thanks

    I think I would be a good fit for this. 
    I'm a long time player with a lot of knowledge about the game, and I've enjoyed sharing that knowledge with new players, helping several learn the game. I also have professional writing experience. I've been looking for a way to get a little more involved in the Torn community and would have the time and passion to update info.

    I would be very interested in this position and motivated in helping with the Wiki , as someone who regularly uses it.

    I have written various detailed guides such as How to make money, Defense v Dexterity, Grouping and Temporaries. Throughout the last six months I have learned a wealth of information regarding various mechanics of the game such as the stock market, attacking system and weapons. I feel all this experience well equips me for this role as I can use my knowledge of these mechanics to explain them from the perspective of someone who had no prior understanding of them .

    I enjoy researching and writing accurate and clear information that anybody who is not informed on the subject can easily read at a glance and understand. So if given the opportunity I would gladly take the position. I hope you will consider me for the job.

    Hullo, I'd be interested in this position. I've picked up quite a bit of knowledge of the game in the 10 or so years I've been playing it and always try to seek out more. I think knowledge of a game as intricate as Torn is valuable and I enjoy imparting it on people who need it. 

    As far as time and/or ability to commit goes I currently have more free time than I'd care to admit, haha. I'm well written and attentive to detail as well - I've also been looking to get a bit more involved in the Torn community as of late and a little bit of responsibility like this seems like a good way to do that.

    Although I'm relatively new to this game, I figured I might as well apply. I'm always willing to learn new things and already have a good knowledge of Torn as I've basically memorized the wiki am I've always wanted to help new players learn the game more with my giveaways and being a wiki contributor would help me help others.  I have a big chunk of free time as all I've been doing is reading Torn guides in my free time mainly.

    I'd be interested in helping, perhaps from a different background. As a returning player, I came back knowing the basics, but I've spent a lot of time hunting down information in order to brush up. It'd be great to offer something less in-depth than a long guide; helping make the wiki both accessible and useful would be a great project.

    I'm interested in applying for this because I like to give my friends more information than they can digest in one sitting. As a relatively new full-time Torn city resident I've consumed and adsorbed a lot of information that even people with years of experience have missed. I'd only hope to be helpful to as many people as possible

    I'd like to contribute to the Torn Wiki. I use it myself often and I find it a valuable tool and resource. My knowledge of the game isn't on bogie's level, but for Wiki's purposes I believe my contributions would help other players. In terms of activity, I believe my activity stats speak for itself, however, I want to mention that I am mostly online throughout the day. I look forward to being able to work with the Wiki team and write for Torn. Thanks!

    I'd definitely like to contribute to the wiki. Again, I'm relatively new, so if you're not looking for a new player, I'd suggest skip past. But I do frequently refer to the wiki, and I like to always see whether I'm correct or not (I guess I seriously don't like giving out wrong info whenever possible ). If there's ever any edits, even small edits or little things to change, I'm someone to try and pick out all the little details to see if I can find anything wrong that I know of. Updating the wiki to make sure it's accurate for all players, especially any new ones that might get lost, is what I'd love to help in.

    I'd like to apply to help with the Torn wiki.
    I do like learning and sharing all the knowledge I have learned in this game, but as a young player I mostly try to stay out of the public eye so that has meant close friends and faction members. Not really sure what else to say here, plenty of good applicants so I won't lie and say I know the most.
    Thanks for your time

    Hi, I would like to help out here.
    I can help with factions, company, education, and various others areas. I am also not shy to reach out to more experienced players to gather inputs in areas where my understanding is limited, to help the Wiki grow.

    I will like to apply for becoming a contributor to Torn wiki. 
    I have been an active member here since past 1.5 year and have learned a lot of stuffs. I will like to share the knowledge with the young ones in Torn so that they can enjoy the game too. Also, I'm a system engineer in RL and have worked on documentation phase of projects, so I'm a bit experienced for the same and I might be able to use it here.
    Thanks
