Perhaps for bots we create a bot that will undo edits by vandals automatically (For example, if a category is added that says a swear word, the bot will rollback the edit and block the vandal). And the name could be VandalBot.
I don't mean for this to be implemented immediately; it is going to be implemented later down the line, when the wiki is complete and running. Still though, I see your points. I'll send the plans to the admins.
Also, you can't check whether people have been banned somewhere. That's just impossible for normal users and isn't really needed as well. Somebody may have been blocked somewhere for a day 5 years ago. The person may've changed to a very good and trusted user.
Having had any other rights on the wiki before isn't needed as well. It's just important that you're a good user and can handle the tools.
And finally, there are admins etc while the wiki isn't even that old.
Regarding your first critique, I get that you can't check anywhere. However, you CAN check people's ban logs on a certain wikia... this is going to be harder than I thought. Perhaps I edit it so that you can't have been banned in the last six months?
I get that, however I do not feel good simply allowing a new user to become admin. I implemented that so there is a trust level allowing the wikia community to become used to the new staff's prescence.
The current staff were implemented to moderate the wikia and start accepting more staff. The bureaucrats and administrators reserve the right to demote someone if they lack the continued effort to stay as a staff.

The full community is allowed to support and oppose candidates, as their votes will show good or bad trust and may help influence the higher-ups decision.
Must be either Discussions or Chat Moderator first.

How Staff Will Be Picked
Administrators will be nominated by other admins and the nomination will be sent to the bureaucrat(s). If the bureaucrat(s) accept the nomination, the applying user will be granted administration rights.
Bureaucrats are special, as three fourths of the entire staff team must agree on the bureaucrat's promotion. If the former administrator is accepted by three fourths of the staff team, they will be granted bureaucrat rights and kept in check.
Content moderators must be nominated by other Chat/Discussions moderators. If two administrators approve of the nomination, the chat/discussions moderator will become a content moderator after a bureaucrat is contacted.
Chat moderators are nominated by any user and will be either accepted or rejected by the administrators. If at least one administrator approves, the user will become a chat moderator after a bureaucrat is contacted.
How an applicant can be rejected
Not meeting criteria
Not having enough administrator votes
Being currently banned
So how's that for good criteria? Make sure to use templates such as Support, Neutral, and Oppose!

It's fine; we just rarely give out rights unless someone wants to become staff.
SaltyPearl7152 has created an idea to mark all information regarding Slither.ioPlus content unofficial. For example, if there was a page about extra skins in SlitherPlus, it would be edited so that the title would be Extra Skins (UNOFFICIAL).
Thoughts? Please make sure to use the following templates:
For the main page, I believe that it should give information about the game itself, and not how much mass it takes to be on the leaderboard. For example, who developed it, what updates it had, whether it was cancelled or not, if it had any copies...
I'd be okay with combining the Strategies and Gameplay Mechanics and Strategies pages, but the Slither.io is going to soon be protected, and the Styles of Gameplay is more about... oh, I see where you're going with this...
I say combine anything that isn't the Slither.io page.
