The Maintenance Team is ArchWiki's official group of users whose goal is supervising and fixing the edits that are made every day to the articles in the wiki.
All members of the Maintenance Team provide ways to contact them if you desire so. Nevertheless, prefer using the discussion tab above each page for page-specific comments.
Use ArchWiki talk:Maintenance Team for generic remarks or if you require assistance from the Maintenance Team, or to discuss wiki organization, conventions, etc. To contact the ArchWiki administrators in matters that cannot be discussed publicly (e.g. regarding issues about user accounts), send an email from the wiki interface to all wiki administrators by using Special:EmailUser/WikiSysop (this method allows making reasonable assumptions about the link between the username and email address).
Active members of the Maintenance Team are listed in the following table. Maintainers are periodically and automatically sorted in descending order by their number of edits in the previous 30 days.

Common requisites for becoming a maintainer are:
