Wikipedia:Requests for permissions/Patroller/Archives/2011

User:Ruy Pugliesi change

I would like to request the patroller user right in order to help in countervandalism work. I am currently a global rollbacker (verify), and I already hold patroller permissions on bswiki (verify), enwiki (verify) and commons (verify). Thanks in advance.

I'm a little hesitant to give the tool right now, as I don't see any articles created here. We give out rollback easily to people with the tool on other wikis because the rules are generally the same x-wiki, but when you get into creating articles in different languages or forms, it gets a little more tricky. I would personally like to see some experience in writing simple English articles before granting the tool, however I'm not going to mark this as not done, and we can wait for a second opinion. Thanks. --Gordonrox24 | Talk 22:48, 11 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I know that. However, this permission has already been granted to users without any articles created here (global rollbackers). I think it would be quit useful to have patroller right, because this permission would allow me to mark others' edits as patrolled while I'm monitoring RecentChanges.

I agree with Gordon here. I've seen use of rollback that was against policy so not happy to give out another tool yet. fr33kman 22:59, 11 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I've used Twinkle in this diff, not rollback feature. Ruy Pugliesi 23:05, 11 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It doesn't matter which tool was used but that you could only see the edit as vandalism. fr33kman 00:01, 12 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Sorry... I don't understand. I saw the edit as it was: a vandalism. Could you define this (or even this) in another way? Anyway, I didn't use rollback feature, although it was suitable for that. Ruy Pugliesi 01:33, 12 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm sorry, I failed to check. You are correct. fr33kman 01:56, 12 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Ruy, as far as I know, we don't mark edits as patrolled here (unlike meta and some other wikis, that feature is not enabled here) with this flag. The flag is for marking new pages patrolled after seeing that they have the correct format and getting one's own page creations patrolled. I don't know why the flag has been given to people who do not create good quality articles because that is not what the right was created for. NotImportant 06:53, 12 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
NotImportant, I've just thought this flag was purposed for marking others' edits as patrolled, as it occurs on enwiki and some other wikis, where I already have such permission. I didn't know that. In this case, it wouldn't be suitable for me, I guess. Sorry for that. You can close this request. Ruy Pugliesi 14:18, 12 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Not done, then, for formality's sake. sonia 20:16, 13 June 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Experienced patroller on enwiki and have the same autopatrolled rights (120 articles) there as well. I will be focusing my editing here by patrolling the backlogs over the summer. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 17:37, 26 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Done No concerns per history on en and here. EhJJTALK 17:44, 26 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:MC10 change

I would like to request the patroller user right to help combat vandalism. I am currently a rollbacker here, and I am also a trusted user on enwiki. Thanks. mc10 (u|t|c) 04:42, 6 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Avicennasis change

Hello. I would like to request patroller rights here. I believe I could be of some assistance in watching new pages for vandalism, in addition to other issues, such as copyvios, et cetera. Thanks. -Avicennasis @ 06:48, 17 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

He has created 23+ articles. This might help reduce the load off New Page patrollers. --SEPTActaMTA8235 11:51, 21 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Baseball Watcher change

I would like to have the patroller to lessen the stress of new page patrollers and I also have rollback rights here too. Baseball Watcher 20:47, 22 April 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Edin Auto-Simplify change

Created a bunch of articles, reduce load off New Pages Patrollers. --SEPTActaMTA8235 18:55, 5 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Suggest that this isn't done. Other than the fact I have concerns about how this account is operating, all of the articles created have needed a significant amount of work doing to them, though frankly I've given up because we shouldn't be automating article creation anyway. Effectively hiding these edits from patrollers would be a bad thing. Goblin 19:00, 5 May 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Juliancolton!Reply[reply]
Agree with Bluegoblin7. In my opinion, automating article creation is usually a bad idea, and it is better if users review the article creations to fix the formatting etc. NotImportant (talk) 08:38, 15 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Not done - How I hate automatic article creation. Simply importing stuff from enwiki and then making one edit to "try" to simplify it usually doesn't work. Any edit here should be checked. -Barras (talk) 08:41, 15 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Quintucket change

Hi, I'm working on a couple projects right now on economic development, international relations, and the Arab World Protests. I'm an English teacher, with a fairly good idea how to simplify techincal language. Since I've decided it's easier to do a lot of little edits than a few large ones (which I usually do on the English Wikipedia), I thought it might help if I were autopatrolled. I'd also be happy to watch for vandalism sometimes. --Quintucket (talk) 13:45, 18 May 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Done Please read WP:ROLLBACK. Thank you, Jon@talk:~$ 18:00, 3 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Scream, this is for the Patroller flag, not the Rollbacker flag - you seem to have got your wires crossed? :-) Goblin 22:54, 3 July 2011 (UTC) I ♥ Pmlineditor!Reply[reply]
I've switched those around. Sorry for the long wait in getting the tool!--Gordonrox24 | Talk 01:44, 4 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I apologise. I don't know what to say exactly. I'll be more watchful. Jon@talk:~$ 01:28, 7 July 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Auntof6 change

Requesting patroller rights so I can mark pages as patrolled. I often look at the list of new pages anyway, looking to be sure that stubs are tagged as stubs, articles about people have birth year, death year, and defaultsort specified, and that articles have appropriate categories. --Auntof6 (talk) 23:24, 11 October 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Orashmatash change

I am requesting patroller rights because as you will be able to see, the pages I have created are filled with reliable and trustworthy information. I am also looking to start vandal-fighting, and think this tool will be useful in looking for vandalism in newly-created pages. Orashmatash (talk) 15:58, 10 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Not done While the articles you have created are of good quality, I think that you need more experience in article creation and antivandalism for this right. Also, I'd suggest you do more work in articles/against vandalism before trying to collect rights. Regards, Pmlineditor (t · c · l) 16:06, 10 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I understand, I will wait until I have more experience. Orashmatash (talk) 17:54, 10 September 2011 (UTC)Reply[reply]
