Hi, [[User:YellowFrogger|YellowFrogger]]. 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>). If they have ''not'', you should add {{tl|unsigned}} by '''substitution''' (<code><nowiki>{{subst:Unsigned|</nowiki>''username''<nowiki>|</nowiki>''00:01, 31 August 2020 (UTC)''<nowiki>}}</nowiki></code>), where ''username'' is the user's username or IP address and the timestamp is the full timestamp from the [[Special:Diff|diff]] page. 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;
  +
# 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 [[w:WP:LISTGAP|WP:LISTGAP]];
  +
# If something requires deletion, you can add {{tl|delete}} to the ''top'' of the page in question, taking care to follow the instructions on that template page;
  +
# 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,
  +
# If in ''doubt'' whether something requires remediation or not, ''patrol'' it, and then ask any [[Special:ListUsers/sysop|administrator]] via their user talk page or at [[Meta:Administrators' noticeboard]] if any further action needs to be taken.

Note

Hey YellowFrogger! I see you've welcomed a nice batch of new users. While we all appreciate the effort to do so, it is generally discouraged to welcome every single user that logs into Meta. Generally, it is ok to welcome a user after they make a few contributions (excluding wiki requests). If they do make a few contributions to Meta then it's ok to welcome them. Thanks!

Hello,

Your archiving of SN has been rolled back as some of the content you removed was not eligble for being archived. ~ RhinosF1 - (chat)· acc· c - (on) 07:34, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Where are the eligibility requirements listed, for reference? --Raidarr (talk) 11:28, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
@Raidarr: Go into the source editor and look at the top of the page. At the top, there are certain parameters set that Revibot would normally follow and whatever is laid out there I would say are the requirements for archiving threads. Agent Isai Talk to me! 12:48, 20 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Patroller granted - 2021-11-1

Hi, YellowFrogger. 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) 03:07, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
