Help:Patrolled edits

From ATWiki

Jump to: navigation, search


In MediaWiki 1.4 and above, a feature exists allowing specific users to mark items in recent changes as having been "patrolled" or "approved". This is useful when reviewing recent changes for undesirable edits, link spam and vandalism.

Marking edits as patrolled

To mark an edit as patrolled
  1. Access Special:Recentchanges
    Changes which are not patrolled will be indicated with a red exclamation mark
  2. Click the (diff) link next to an edit
  3. To mark the edit as patrolled, click the mark as patrolled link


Patrolled edits are enabled for sysops.

Automatic patrolling

In MediaWiki 1.6 and later, there is a user preference available to users who are able to mark edits as patrolled. When set, this causes their edits to be patrolled automatically.

This option is not available if patrolled edits are switched off.
