And if it takes wiki admins becoming Discord staff to ensure our suggestions get a voice, then that'd also be what I'm arguing for.

Beyond that, I'd like to see better server–wiki coordination.

Whilst the Discord staff have criticised some of the folks in #productive_work for not being active enough in other areas, or for actively voicing their ideas to Discord staff, this argument cuts both ways, as one could equally argue that the Discord staff should be proactive in addressing the needs of their users, including the wiki editors.

There is no server suggestions channel, as there is on some other Discord servers. For the time I've been there, no Discord staff have reached out to us and asked if there were things we could suggest to make the server more useful for us. Whilst I understand that the majority of the server's patronage are regular fans, and that's to whom the staff spend most of their time catering, this is why it seems to me that the editors have been relegated to the sidelines. I personally don't care about roles. But I would find it useful if we had a means to look Discord users up by their wiki names, so we can ping them about edits. Or a dedicated channel for regular editors to log vandalism, so those users get warned and don't fall through the cracks.

And if it takes wiki admins becoming Discord staff to ensure our suggestions get a voice, then that'd also be what I'm arguing for.
