- Reviewing and accepting edits: If after while your edit has not been reviewed first: check if there might be anything wrong with it - perhaps add an explanation why you changed this. Second: Contact a staff member and ask.
- Resolving disputes between users; if there is a dispute about how a specific page should look like, if there is disagreement about a specific build, the staff is meant to help you out and find a solution. Just contact us.

Reviews and Content Moderation
These users are responsible for reviewing content, along with the others listed. If you have questions about the review of your pages, contact them.
Strategy is a rather subjective thing, and quite difficult to pin down inside of a wiki. Invariably you will get disputes about who is right and who is wrong in various articles. When Content Moderators cannot decide who is right or wrong, or if you disagree with their decision, then ask these guys. They are the leading authority for strategy concerning their respective race so their decisions are final.
