I was recently told by a friend that some wikis use a system I think would help this wiki. It's called the patrol system (even the name suits Warriors).
Basically how it works is a group of users are assigned to "patrol" the website making sure no articles are vandalized and are allowed the power to delete and/or protect pages and images and give vandals official warnings (banning still falls upon sysops). This takes some stress off of sysops and article writers that constantly have to worry about vandals.
I think this system would be suitable. Does anyone else agree?
