Commons Patroller Icon.svg
How Special:NewPages looks like for patrollers. Unpatrolled pages are marked in yellow, while patrolled ones aren't.

The patrol user right is a specific user right that enables a user to mark edits and page creations as patrolled.[1] This is in order to reduce the backlog of new pages and unpatrolled edits. It exists to tell other patrollers something has been reviewed by a patroller, that it's not vandalism and doesn't fall outside of our project scope (or has been reverted/deleted in such case).

Users with the patroller right will see a link like "[Mark as patrolled]" in the right bottom corner of any new page, and on the right-hand side of any diff-view, that has not yet been patrolled. In addition, unpatrolled pages will be highlighted in yellow on Special:NewPages. Unpatrolled edits stand out by their ! exclamation mark in front of the line. Patrollers are supposed to check in order to see if they fall within our project scope. Acceptable pages should be patrolled, and non-acceptable should either be rearranged or deleted if not possible. The right is given by default to any administrator, but can be given to trustworthy users upon request. It's possible to either ask a specific administrator for the user right or to formally request the right at Commons:Requests for rights.

For a list of patrollers, see Special:Listusers/patroller (currently 331).

How does NewPage-patrol work ?[edit]

The arrow points to the mark as patrolled button on a newly created page

Any pages highlighted in yellow on Special:Newpages has not yet been marked as patrolled. This means that it may not have been reviewed. When you check the page, you should mark it as patrolled if (a) you see that it is a good page or (b) before or after you tag it for deletion. If you are not sure about what to do with a page, do not mark it as patrolled; another editor will review it later.

To mark a page as patrolled, simply click the "[Mark this page as patrolled]" link in the bottom right corner of the page.

What to mark as patrolled[edit]

  • Anything that is appropriate for Commons.

What not to mark as patrolled[edit]

  • Pages you are not sure about and no one else supports keeping (other than the author/uploader).

How does edit patrol work ?[edit]

An unpatrolled edit in the RecentChanges and follow the arrows to mark as patrolled

From the Recent changes click the (diff)-link of any unpatrolled edit. Then in the diff-view review the edit by clicking the "[Mark this page as patrolled]" on the righthand side. After marking the edit as patrolled you can close the page, or (in the event of vandalism or other wise contributions not in coherence with Commons guidelines) perform an undo or rollback.

In the diff-view one can tell whether or not a talk-page exists by the color of the link. Let the user know you reverted his/her edit by leaving a message. See also Commons:Counter Vandalism Unit#File.

Autopatrolled[edit]

Shortcut
COM:Autopatrolled
Commons Autopatrolled.svg

The autopatrolled user right is similar to the patroller right that it is a specific user right which involves marking an action as patrolled. The only difference is that autopatrollers do not have the ability to mark actions as patrolled, instead only their own actions are automatically marked as patrolled. This right is commonly granted to users who aren't necessarily involved in patrolling pages, edits or uploads; but create a high level of quality pages or uploads that do not require being patrolled by other users. This reduces the backlog of Newpage and Commons:Anonymous edits. This right is also granted to users that make a large amount of good edits, that do not need to be patrolled, to reduce the clutter on Watchlists.

Users with the patrol user right should not be granted this right, as they already have it and is redundant. Membership of the OTRS members and image reviewers user groups includes the autopatrolled user right.

For a list of autopatrolled users, see Special:Listusers/autopatrolled (currently <tvar>3,827</>).

Other notes[edit]

  • A log of all patrols can be seen at Special:Log/patrol. It includes usernames, articles, and the revision reviewed, and may be sorted by username or by article title.
  • Pages created and modified by administrators, bots, and users with Autopatrolled are automatically marked as "patrolled (automatic)".
  • There is a "Hide patrolled edits" option on Special:Newpages so that you can ignore pages that have already been reviewed.
  • Even when the last few hours or even days have all been patrolled, there is still a big backlog. Pages expire from the unpatrolled queue after 720 hours (30 days).
  • For those who patrol regularly there are a couple of gadgets available to assist (Popups and AjaxPatrolLinks).
  • Patrollers also have the abusefilter-log-detail user right, which allows them to see the details of Commons:Abuse filter log entries.[2]

CSS classes[edit]

There are three CSS classes related to patrolled edits:

  1. The class for non-patrolled articles in NewPages is .not-patrolled, so colorblind users or users who prefer a different style can, for example, add .not-patrolled { border: 2px solid black } to their user CSS files.
  2. The class for the exclamation mark is .unpatrolled, for example .unpatrolled { display:none } hides them from the RecentChanges and your Watchlist.
  3. The class for the "Mark this page as patrolled" link in the lower-right corner of each new page is .patrollink, you can style it in your user CSS file, for example: .patrollink { font: bold small sans-serif}

Notes[edit]

  1. Wondering about patrol on other Wikimedia sites? Not all Wikimedia sites have the Patrol system enabled. To check whether a given site has it, you can look at the 'wgUseRCPatrol' section in Wikimedia's settings file. Enwiki, however, manages to be an exception to this (Bugzilla19309), having an autopatrolled user right (named 'autoreviewer') without a $wgUseRCPatrol setting...
  2. Per Bugzilla35545, 3 April 2012.
