s are Editors who have been trusted to make edits that are automatically approved (AutoEdit
s) without going through the normal voting process, as well as approve other editors' edits. There is a list of all AutoEditors.
If you are an AutoEditor, you can participate in the AutoEditor elections.

Obligations of an AutoEditor
s should always align themselves to the CodeOfConduct. Furthermore they should be able to look beyond their own nose regarding the data they edit. It is good to have experts in certain areas but every AutoEditor should at least know the basic rules for editing data in every music area and be familiar with all kinds of structural edits and processes. Additionally it is always good if they show some interest in the community, the FutureWork and general issues.
Subscription to the AutomodsMailingList is mandatory for all AutoEditors and they are encouraged to participate in nomination discussions there.
Becoming an AutoEditor
In order to become an AutoEditor, another AutoEditor has to nominate you (see AutoEditorNomination). If your nomination receives two seconders, and a simple majority of votes, you will be promoted to AutoEditor status (this may require you to logout, and login again to be activated).
