I want to be an editor, I was on the TTC wiki, and I realized “What the Hell the 133 hasn’t been edited in a long time and other Malvern routes in fact. So I was wondering if I be an editor I could change that finally.

In order to become a wiki editor, you have to apply in the "Applications" section on the home page. The admins will get back to you within a week and explain why they accepted or denied the application.

I recommend becoming an editor once you've stayed on here for a few months and gotten used to posting on the board in order to gain experience.

I can't log in with "red" theme on (mobile)

I've had that issue too. The blue theme also has that glitch. Best workaround I've found so far is to switch the theme to light red which happens to work.

I've tried for months to become one. I wouldn't even bother, it doesn't get checked.

I've applied about seven times. I latest response I got was that they were unsure if my contributions were good enough for the wiki and they wanted me to show some examples of what pages I would like to edit. So I did that and got no response. Then I PMed A. Wong a week later and he said "Please try again at a later date", I never got another response since then.

I understand it's hard to be accepted as a wiki editor. Because it's protected from anonymous people messing around with it or adding fake information. So members on this board have to post thoughtfully to prove that they can be trusted to post quality updates and not mess around with it.

I had only been around for 3 months when I was promoted. I had already pushed my post count up to around 500 and I was posting reputable information on a daily basis.

The first time I applied (3 months old), I got no response. I then applied again months later. I had a better answer for what I was going to edit, and they said I was accepted based on the info I had provided in my posts

The best advice to become a wiki editor is to show exactly WHAT kind of information you will contribute to the wiki. Explain and go into detail. For example, if you found something vintage and rare to get ahold of such as prototype buses for a new livery, include that in your application. 

It could also be something current such as retirements and/or rebuilds or any other misc. information that is worth being on the wiki.

I think it's based on the amount of thoughtful posts you have made on here, not the amount of time you've been on here. If you've been here for three months and made 500 good posts, you will have a chance at being promoted. If you rarely post, it's recommended to start posting useful information to get used to the board and to have a better chance at getting accepted.

I've made a list of STO wrap ads in the content change and additions section and I've kept it up to date the last few months based on any that are new or removed.

The current ones are all spotted by me (as I do go bus fanning in Downtown Ottawa regularly) the other former ads are from various sites and photos I've taken in the past. 

The current STO wrap ads are considered reliable info because they were all spotted by me and I always post thoughtfully and never post fake spottings or any of that nonsense.

But my point is that each STO Nova LFSs pages on the wiki have a special wrap ad section and nobody ever adds or edits them and the ones already posted for the earlier models are out of date as they've all been removed years ago.

Had I been accepted as a wiki editor I would have kept the STO wrap ads up to date. I just don't understand why posts are not good enough for the wiki.

Have you included the list of current wraps in your application at some point? Merely updating them in the content section isn't enough. If the admins see your list in the application, they will know what you plan on doing with the wiki and will have a higher chance of accepting you.

Wait a few months and try again. Continue posting reliable info and don't post if you have unconfirmed info. When you decide to re-apply, make sure your application includes what you will add to the wiki (the STO wrap list in this case), along with an explanation about why you would make a great fit for the wiki.

How do you edit Miami-Dade Transit Fleet Roster for CPTDB Wiki? 

You have to apply to be a wiki editor in the application section at the bottom of the forum. Create a new thread (with your username as the title) and then state what sections in the wiki you would like to contribute to and why you would be a great role model for the wiki and A. Wong will review your application and answer back to you when he gets the chance.

But since you've only posted a few times. You should try to post more reliable info that you can before applying. Because editing privileges are really only granted to members who post that kind of stuff here on this board.

It changes, I guess. I use red theme, but when I tried it it was mostly black

Yes, there have been a few requests for dark theme. I may try to see if I can play with this Chameleon theme to change the post backgrounds, but we'll see if I am successful...

Perhaps a 'chameleon light' and 'chameleon dark' theme

Is there a way to delete your own posts on CPTDB?

No, Unfortunately only admins have the power to delete posts.

If you want your posts deleted. Just erase your post and say "Delete", "Please Delete", "Never Mind", etc.
