== [[Meta:Patrollers|Patroller]] granted - 2021-08-30 ==
  +
  +
Hi, [[User:Raidarr|Raidarr]]. An [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrator]] on Meta has granted you the <code>[[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Patrollers|patroller]]</code> user group permission, which gives you the ability to <code>patrol</code> [[Special:RecentChanges|recent changes]] and [[Special:NewPages|new pages]] of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Autopatrolled users|autopatrolled]] or an [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrator]]. In addition, this group also means that your edits are <code>autopatrolled</code>, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrators]], so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their ''own'' criteria for revocation.
  +
  +
In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrators]], that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.
  +
  +
Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an [[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Administrators|administrator]] or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a <code>[[Special:MyLanguage/Meta:Rollbackers|rollbacker]]</code>, of course), you should ''always'' first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.
  +
  +
# When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in '''Main''' and '''Meta''' namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (<code><nowiki>~~~~</nowiki></code>).

As a '''best practice''', you should also link to the [[Special:Diff|diff]] in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the <code>diff-permalink</code> user script from '''line 5''' of [[User:Dmehus/global.js|this page]] into either your (a) [[Special:MyPage/common.js|common.js]] or (b) [[Special:MyPage/global.js|global.js]] page (the latter applying globally on ''all'' Miraheze wikis);

# When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the ''correct'' noticeboard. If it is ''not'', you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the [[Special:Diff|diff]] page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be <code><nowiki>Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]]</nowiki></code>, where ''<nowiki>######</nowiki>'' represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;

Revision as of 02:13, 30 August 2021

Drop your comments, inquiries, etc. Please fill from the bottom of the page.

Please forgive me if my responses are a little brisk; reading this I realize I've come off too strong, and I'll try to improve that. --Raidarr (talk)

Criminal wiki

Hi Raidarr, how are you? The criminal wiki is still available if you wanted to edit more? Thanks. Sperosdurell (talk) 22:34, 6 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I believe I left you a comment regarding organization there, and that is what I would likely start with. Bear in mind that two other wikis are my creative focus, although actually focusing on them is a tricky business and the only reason I try to 'muse up' looking elsewhere. So your mileage may vary, and unfortunately it would not be daily. If you have a platform like Discord we could discuss things all at once to come up with a creative direction using whatever you have in mind and what I can manage in offshoots of my ideas. Thank you. -- Raidarr (talk) 10:25, 7 July 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Shaw's Nightmare

Hi Raidarr, how are you? Shaw's Nightmare Wiki needs some help, so maybe try to edit it more? The levels articles in particular need some love. Thanks. Mickey96 (talk) 19:10, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I haven't edited at all, and that is because I have little interest in the wiki subject. But if you would like advice or administrative work, feel free to specify what you'd like to see and I can give it a look. For content itself - the stuff that requires most familiarity with the material - I'm afraid I am not useful for. --Raidarr (talk) 20:23, 27 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Not to be a pest...

I do have a lot of stubs. My mind works in weird ways sorry. If your around sometime easypedia is there. Thank you talk to you later. Sperosdurell (talk) 14:12, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I didn't intend to be mean, personally. However, I do worry a little about the long term future. You have an account that appears to be an alt that requested the wiki, which seems odd. Previous projects seem to be left behind with nothing more than the stubs. To contribute to a place, I need to know that it will last, and that its leaders intend more for it than hoping that someone else (ie, me) will be the ones to give it depth. One-line promises cannot do this. If you have more ideas for what the wiki will do, please share. In particular I need to believe that the wiki stands for more than just being an alternative wikipedia with a lot less stuff and no content curation.
I give anything with a clear idea a chance, but there at least should be proof to more in the idea. A passion if you will. Evidence that this is 'the one' that won't be what I have seen before. --Raidarr (talk) 14:25, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I live in a hard environment to do miraheze or any wiki project for that matter. Saying that i will try and edit every day so the wiki doesn't go stale. I hope you can work with me and the Wiki. Sperosdurell (talk) 14:30, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I can respect not having much time. I'm not sure when I will go back to EP, but I'll give it another look and try to see if there is something structural I can offer. --Raidarr (talk) 15:06, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thank you. Much appreciated. Im sticking with it!!! Sperosdurell (talk) 15:10, 29 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Patroller granted - 2021-08-30

Hi, Raidarr. An administrator on Meta has granted you the patroller user group permission, which gives you the ability to patrol recent changes and new pages of other Miraheze users (both registered and anonymous) who are not either autopatrolled or an administrator. In addition, this group also means that your edits are autopatrolled, so other patrollers or administrators don't have to patrol your edits. You should also be aware that the granting of this user group is at the discretion of Meta administrators, so different administrators will have slightly different criteria for granting. Likewise, just as it is a discretionary appointment, revocation is also at the discretion of Meta administrators and, again, each will have their own criteria for revocation.

In the medium-term, plans are in the works to develop a Meta Patrollers School, likely led by one or two active administrators, that will provide a comprehensive set of guidelines for patrollers and answers to commonly asked questions.

Nevertheless, the following are some of the main guidelines for patrolling. If you follow these guidelines completely, it is unlikely your patroller user group should ever be revoked. In technical terms, even when you find content that requires deletion by an administrator or otherwise requires remediation, undoing, reverting, or rolling back (if you are also a rollbacker, of course), you should always first mark as patrolled any revisions regardless of whether that content is destined to remain extant to the page or even on Meta entirely.

  1. When patrolling talk pages, user talk pages, and noticeboards (in Main and Meta namespaces), you should first check to see whether the user properly signed their posts using four tildes (~~~~). If they have not, you should add {{unsigned}} by substitution ({{subst:Unsigned|username|00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)}}), where username is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the diff page. As a best practice, you should also link to the diff in your edit summary, so other administrators and patrollers can easily tie your modification to the original edit being modified. To speed up this process, you can copy the diff-permalink user script from line 5 of this page into either your (a) common.js or (b) global.js page (the latter applying globally on all Miraheze wikis);
  2. When patrolling the noticeboards, ask yourself whether this topic is on the correct noticeboard. If it is not, you should move it to the correct noticeboard, by either undoing the edit or manually removing the topic (if there have been intervening edits), again linking to the original noticeboard of the topic and the new noticeboard where it was moved in your edit summary. On the new noticeboard, you would simply paste in the topic (including the section header), linking to the diff page as in the first step. An example edit summary might be Moved [[Special:Diff/######|this discussion]] from [[Stewards' noticeboard]] to [[Community noticeboard|here]], where ###### represents the numeric revision ID of the originally posted topic;
  3. Also when patrolling the noticeboards and talk pages (including user talk pages), as a best practice, take care to kindly fix any formatting mistakes (such as excess line breaks or incorrect wiki code), per WP:LISTGAP;
  4. If something requires deletion, you can add {{delete}} to the top of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  5. If you come across a user who repeatedly makes the same mistakes, send them a guidance note on their user talk page, informing of the steps need to edit and post constructively on Meta; and, finally,
  6. If in doubt whether something requires remediation or not, patrol it, and then ask any administrator via their user talk page or at Meta:Administrators' noticeboard if any further action needs to be taken.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out. Thank you! --Dmehus (talk) 02:13, 30 August 2021 (UTC)[reply]
