Help us keep an eye on edits to the Candidates database
Time required: Five minutes
We run the UK’s database of election candidates. It’s crowdsourced: anyone can add information. Errors are rare and vandalism is even rarer. However, for good practice and reassurance, we keep an eye on the edits of new users and edits to prominent candidates.
If you’d like to help us to watch over the edits, please join our Slack and join the ‘candidate-edit-review’ channel. Each time a noteworthy edit is made, it’ll be flagged in this channel. Whoever gets there first can check it, and if it’s okay, use a green check mark (✅) to show that it’s been checked. If there are problems, you can discuss them in the channel.
