User:Neotarf change

I would like to try this patrolling. —Neotarf (talk) 01:59, 29 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Why? What do you think the job of patrolling includes? --Auntof6 (talk) 02:22, 29 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Crasstun change

Whilst content creation was never my strongest point, I think my recent article creations have been satisfactory and I would like to help out patrolling where I can. Crasstun (talk | contributions) 21:53, 31 March 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Crasstun: Since you have apparently renamed yourself again, please update this request with your current name if you would still like this right. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:25, 29 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Yeah I completely forgot to do that after I got renamed. It's done now.--Crasstun (talk | contributions) 10:53, 29 April 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Wwikix change

Creating numerous pages, mainly location. Pages are almost always good to go at this point, without need for any changes. --Tbennert (talk) 16:56, 19 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree to this proposal. Wwikix (talk) 09:33, 21 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  Done If you choose to patrol new pages, please be sure to make sure they're in good shape before marking them as patrolled, or add any maintenance tags that are needed. --Auntof6 (talk) 20:00, 21 January 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Dqwyy change

I am an experienced patroller in Chinese Wikipedia. I want to make contributions to Simple English Wikipedia. The yellow background of the unpatrolled pages in Special:NewPages will help me to do my job more efficiently after I become a patroller. I use WP:Twinkle to do the job. You can check my User Group, Patrol Log and Quick Delect Log in Chinese Wikipedia. --dqwyy (talk) from zhwiki 10:30, 24 May 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •   Not done Editor hasn't done much editing here yet to understand what makes a good article on this wiki. I would prefer to see local work first. -DJSasso (talk) 10:57, 13 July 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Hi, sorry to be away for so long. I wanted to find out what it is about. It was because of a conversation I had with a patroller on my talk page. I would imagine it involves looking at new pages and checking for vandalism. —Neotarf (talk) 21:25, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
No disrespect intended, but if you have to "imagine" what it involves, you A) haven't checked what you're applying for, and B) clearly do not need it. You don't apply for something first and then figure out what to do with it once you have it, that's like buying a car before realising you can't drive. I'm not an admin, but I'd give this a "no". DaneGeld (talk) 21:35, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I see that English is not your first language, so you might want to check the meaning of "imagine" in a learner's dictionary. It is not realistic to expect users to have already used the permissions before requesting them. —Neotarf (talk) 21:52, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You are absolutely correct - English is not my first language, that would be Danish. You do not understand what the permission you are requesting is for, and you have to guess - which by any stretch of the mind, is what you are doing, then you need to read the pages about patrolling to learn about it. I wasn't saying you need to have used it before you get it - that's just plain stupid! What you are doing is asking for tools before you know fully what they're for. I recommend you follow the instructions at the top of this page, and read Wikipedia:Patrollers, which tells you about what you're applying for and what it is used for. DaneGeld (talk) 22:20, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thank you for your advice. Try definition 1b of "imagine": "to form a picture or idea in your mind of (something that is not real or present)" or definition 3: "to think or believe (something)". It does not mean I am guessing--I have been following NPP and AFD discussions on and off for quite some time--it is a polite phrase only. —Neotarf (talk) 23:54, 22 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@DaneGeld: Please leave it to the admins to determine whether to grant rights. No good can come from one editor bashing another like this, and the community does not vote on these requests. --Auntof6 (talk) 19:07, 26 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:power~enwiki change

I have this permission on the main English Wikipedia and plan to patrol the New Pages feed here as well. Power~enwiki (talk) 18:40, 26 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Not done Not done at this time. You have been here only a short time. I'd prefer that you first demonstrate that you understand the requirements here, some of which are not intuitive to people used to working on enwiki. Also, with the patrol right, your own creations do not need to be patrolled, and looking at a couple of articles you created, they do need patrolling. Spend some more time here and get familiar with the requirements of simplewiki before asking for this right. --Auntof6 (talk) 18:58, 26 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Those are two separate rights on, and I agree that I don't want auto-patrolled at this time. Is there any way I can see the list of un-patrolled pages without the right? Power~enwiki (talk) 20:15, 26 October 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@Power~enwiki: Sorry for the late reply: I don't know any way to do that. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:39, 4 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Artix Kreiger change

I think I have enough articles created for the patroller permission Artix Kreiger (talk) 20:26, 13 November 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  •   Not done I would need to see significantly more time on this wiki before I granted this. Not sure you completely understand the differences between here and etc. -DJSasso (talk) 15:07, 19 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

User:Clarkcj12 change

I would like to help review new pages, as I currently do a quite a bit of patrolling I do have the permission on English Wikipedia. Clarkcj12 (talk) 00:53, 19 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think the issue Osiris brought up the last time you requested is still happening. Copying stuff directly from without attribution. I wouldn't be comfortable with granting while that is still an issue. -DJSasso (talk) 15:06, 19 December 2017 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  Request withdrawn I am withdrawing and will do this later when @Djsasso: says I should be good. --Clarkcj12 (talk) 05:03, 4 January 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]
