The TFOE Wiki Administration, also known as the Mapperdonian Armed Forces are the official staff members of the TFOE Wikia. Also referred to by some as the official military police of the Mapperdonian Community, its members are elected seasonally from being nominated by Wikia users. The pool of nominees is, in essence, a list of users who are considered to be capable of being part of the staff but are currently not. People in this pool typically display some sort of above-average intelligence, maturity or disciplined behavior, average or satisfactory problem-solving skills, and experience working with users and the Wikia. The current amount of staff members is 30, with 11 being active and 19 being inactive.
New staff members are usually elected from this small pool of candidates. Occasionally, new ones are filled every season and are expected to be proficient and hard-working. However, there are some special cases where the members aren't chosen but were promoted due to agreements (For example: Mindria or Zukasratavarius). However, they display slightly less discipline compared to the elected staff.
One example of this is the promotion of Mindria to administrator in November 2014 because of agreement amongst the staff members. The staff members at the time (Batran99, Goldenrebel25, and MrOwnerandPwner were the most notable) were dealing with overwhelming problems, and they were having trouble looking for new members. Batran99 helped organize this and proposed a solution to the small pool. He proposed the compromise that the people can recommend staff members to the pool, and the admins vote on it every season (this is how the tradition of seasonal recommendation polls came to be). Fortunately for Mindria, it happened to be almost his birthday. He asked Batran99 about volunteering for staffmanship. Batran99 had no one else to choose at the time, so he (along with other staff members) wanted to carry out the proposal. They voted and passed the law with Mindria (under an agreement) being the first in the "Fall 2014 Adminship". Basically, Mindria was the first test subject in an experiment. When he showed capabilities to handle alts, he was made into a permanent staff member. In 2017, a new temporary position on Discord was added called Trainee Moderator.
