Administrivia / Know the Staff

So as to maintain the order in the wiki and elsewhere on the site, TV Tropes has a staff in charge of moderating the behaviour in them. The following is a list of all of the staff members, including site owners, the moderators and some more people with more specific roles.

Most requests for staff assistance concern moderators. For wiki-side issues you can contact them on Ask The Tropers; use the "private" checkbox on the post form if the request has to be private. In the forums, you make a report for the moderators by clicking the Holler button by that post (it looks like this). If you want actions with regards to locked articles and other technical wiki page requests, use this forum thread.

Please note that general issues should not be PM'ed to individual moderators, as there's no guarantee that they will read their inbox at any particular time. If you need to talk to a specific staff member, you can use the Private Messaging system. First click on your profile picture in the top-right corner of any page, select "Message", click on "Create a PM" in the top bar, and then put their handle in the "To Troper:" field. This message will reach them as soon as they next visit the site and open their mailbox.
