Hi, [[User:Magogre|Magogre]]. 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.

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;

Account confirmation requested

Hi Magogre,

Thank you for noting your apparent Wikimedia user account, and for later listing your prior Miraheze user accounts. However, those accounts Flarehot and Juslit were previously locked by self request of the user, so unable to provide the necessary confirmation edit, and previously confirmed Hulged as their alternate account, would you mind providing a confirmation edit, from Hulged on any Wikimedia wiki of your choosing noting that your apparent later account, Magogre, is also included? As well, noting your recent permission request for wiki creator, as a recommended best practice, I would recommend noting all prior Miraheze user accounts, particularly if either of Flarehot or Juslit have requested the permission.

Thanks,

Hi Dmehus, please see this edit on Simple English Wikipedia. --Magogre (talk) 06:38, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Magogre, Face-smile.svg Thank you. That's great. Feel free to stash that diff somewhere, should you have need to call upon it again in the future for some reason. I'll review and handle your patroller request tomorrow evening, if that's alright. Dmehus (talk) 06:40, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Dmehus, yes, I'll stash that diff somewhere, possibly on my userpage.
And for my patroller request, I am completely fine if that is reviewed tomorrow! --Magogre (talk) 07:11, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks. :) Dmehus (talk) 07:15, 25 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Patroller granted - 2021-11-26

Hi, Magogre. 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) 05:14, 26 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
