User:Rubbish computer change

I have made over 1,000 edits, have created about 5 articles and multiple redirects and understand the policies of Wikipedia, such as notability (a subject's overall impact on the world), no original research (not combining previously uncombined sources or including one's own research) and neutral point of view (stating points of view without taking a side.

I'm not going to say yes or no, because I'm borderline on your case. I will say that the very few articles you have created (actual articles, not redirects or dab pages) were minimal stubs, some of which needed some work. That's not really enough to show that your articles would be in good shape. Whether or not your request is approved, I would recommend that you work on understanding how to fully categorize articles, because that's one thing I saw others doing with the articles you created. I'd be glad to help you learn about that if you want. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:35, 26 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Soon, I think. To practice articles you might pick pages which are ridiculously short on topics or people whose importance merits more. Working them up to a more worthwhile article uses most of the skills of editing. Macdonald-ross (talk) 10:24, 27 October 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Macdonald-ross: @Auntof6: Okay, thanks. --Rubbish computer (HALP!: I dropped the bass?) 23:42, 6 November 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Auntof6 and Macdonald-ross: Should the user renew this request, I want to bring to your attention the stats at this link, as well as the fact that the user has new pages patrol and auto-patrolled rights (plus rollbacker right) on EnWiki. With over 50,000 edits (more than 80% of which are mainspace edits), I doubt very much that he would misuse the requested tool here on Simple.

User:BRPever change

I like to Patrol new pages and changes. I am patroller in commons and rollbacker in English wikipedia too. I have created more than 21 pages and this right will help me further to help Simple English Wikipedia. BRPever (talk) 09:57, 24 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Not done You have been editing here less than two days. This Wikipedia does some things differently from others. Some of the things we do can look like vandalism if you aren't familiar with how things are done here. If you're interested, I have a list of some of those things at User:Auntof6/Things I would like Wikipedia editors to know#Things we do here that might be different from other Wikis. Feel free to look at that and let me know if you have any questions. Besides that, part of what comes with having the patroller right is that your own pages don't have to be patrolled. You might not have noticed, but some of your articles have needed to be copy edited and simplified to meet the requirements for this Wikipedia. Look at what was done, ask any questions you have about it, and use that info in other new pages you create. After you get used to this wiki and have worked here for a while, you can ask again for the patroller right. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:26, 24 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Jeff G. change

I would like to Patrol new pages and changes to help keep Simple English Wikipedia clean. I have rollbacker permission and over 300 edits here and the following permissions on other WMF projects: autoreviewer, filemover, ipblock-exempt, reviewer, and rollbacker on English Wikipedia (over 95,000 edits); Image-reviewer, filemover, patroller, rollbacker on Wikimedia Commons (over 13,000 edits); autopatrolled on Wikimedia Meta (over 200 edits); editor, reviewer, and sysop on Test Wikipedia (over 100 edits); and sysop on Wikimedia Outreach.  — Jeff G. ツ 10:56, 31 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Done Your help will be appreciated. --Peterdownunder (talk) 11:04, 31 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Peterdownunder: Thank you. I am surprised that there is no Autopatrolled right here.   — Jeff G. ツ 16:19, 31 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Jeff G.: I thought there was an autopatroller right, so either I have forgotten something or am imagining it. --Peterdownunder (talk) 21:06, 31 January 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Peterdownunder: @Krinkle: There is on English WP. In any case, when I am using m:User:Krinkle/Tools/Real-Time Recent Changes, and I tap "Mark", the edit gets skipped, not marked as patrolled. It works on other projects. :(   — Jeff G. ツ 03:56, 3 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Peterdownunder: @Jeff G.:, Are you sure you were tapping "Mark" on something that was currently unpatrolled? (!; red exclamation mark). Remember the Simple Wikipedia project, similar to English Wikipedia, currently only has New Page patrol enabled, not for other edits. I can't reproduce the skipping behaviour you describe. It works for me (permalink, patrol log). Perhaps try again after logging-out and logging-in. This could be a bug in the user right system (not related to my RTRC gadget, but rather the wiki software itself). Krinkle (talk) 23:25, 3 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Peterdownunder: @Krinkle: Ok , it works for a bunch of new pages, but neither marks nor advances when tapped on Template:Deaths in, Wikipedia:TPLATE, and Mexican revolution. I'm sorry, I didn't realize non-newpage edits were not patrollable here.   — Jeff G. ツ 02:22, 4 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Peterdownunder and Jeff G.: Autopatrol right is included within patroller here. StevenJ81 (talk) 22:22, 7 February 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Oshwah change

I am requesting the Patroller right in order to assist with the patrolling of new pages created. I understand that the Simple English Wikipedia has different policies than the English Wikipedia (where I do most of my editing - see here), and I have read and I understand Wikipedia's deletion policy, including quick deletion and requests for deletion. If any administrators have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to ask. Thanks in advance! :-) ~Oshwah~ (talk) (contribs) 12:55, 8 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Music1201 change

I have major patrolling experience on the English Wikipedia and would like to help out here. Music1201 (talk) 01:11, 18 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Not done You've been editing here for less than a month. You've only done a couple of dozen edits, and most of those have had to be reverted (mostly because we don't want a lot of links to English Wikipedia). You've only edited 4 different mainspace pages. We do some things differently from enwiki, and some of those things can look like vandalism if you don't know our practices. I have a list of some of the things we do differently: it's at User:Auntof6/Things I would like Wikipedia editors to know#Things we do here that might be different from other Wikis. Take some time to learn how things are done here before you ask for rights. --Auntof6 (talk) 01:43, 18 April 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Lolcats20 change

I would like patroller as I revert lots of Vandalism on Simple Wikipedia, and also do a lot of QD for newly created articles that are vandalism or do not meet the requirements. I am familiar with what a patroller is and the guidelines to follow. I am also very active and have created many articles. I also attempt to help those who need it.

User:Music1201 change

After getting my last request declined, I have familiarized myself with the patroller guidelines and read the page written by Auntof6. I am ready to start patrolling pages, and this user group will help me stop vandalism on this wiki. Music1201 (talk) 03:21, 2 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Not done I'm glad you read the guidelines and the write-up I did, but you still haven't been here very long nor made many edits. Two weeks additional experience isn't long enough when you make so few edits. You've only been editing here since March 21. You've made fewer than 40 edits, not nearly enough to show us that you understand how things are done here. Not only that, but only eleven of those have been to articles; of those, only 1 appears to have been an attempt to undo vandalism, but in fact it restored vandalism to the page. Your English Wikipedia record doesn't look very extensive, either: you've been editing there only since March 19. As I said before, take time to get to know how things are done here. Make constructive edits to articles, edits that don't get reverted as most of yours have been. If you see something you think needs doing, try running it by someone first to be sure it won't cause a problem. I would say wait at least a month before asking again, but that might not be long enough if you aren't making constructive edits. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:49, 2 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • (Non-admin comment). Music1201 It is not necessary to have the patroller right to fight vandalism or to write good articles. When other editors create new pages, they show up in the recent changes log (which you can review). Check the page over the same way you would if you had the patroller right. Fix what should be fixed or nominate the page for deletion if it is total junk. No special right is needed, but your efforts will still help the encyclopedia.

User:Oluwa2Chainz change

I request this right as I am familiar with COI and NPOV. I am active on this wiki and have created a few articles with the intention of creating more. Oluwa2Chainz (talk) 21:33, 17 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Not done -- not yet, anyway. The patroller right gives you two things: you can patrol other users new pages, and your own new pages don't need patrolling. You haven't created enough new pages to show that you consistently create pages that don't need work (some of your new pages have needed a little bit of work). Create more new articles and look at what people change in the ones you create to see the kind of thing I'm talking about: it's partly categorizing, and some simplifying. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:37, 19 May 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Some Gadget Geek change

Short reason for wanting permission to go along with my rollback rights. << S O M E G A D G E T G E E K >> (talk) 15:02, 5 December 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Done as your changes do not need regular checking. But for the record rollback and patroller are different skill sets - one is recognising vandalism and dealing with it, the other shows an understanding of the layout and content needed for a good page and knowing how to correct them if necessary. As with all extra tools, please use carefully and do not be afraid to ask questions.--Peterdownunder (talk) 12:29, 6 December 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
