Patroller granted - 2020-08-31[edit source]

Hi, . 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) 03:50, 31 August 2020 (UTC)


Interested in becoming a wiki creator?[edit source]

Hi 松 (Pine/Matsu),

I know you're still deciding on whether you'd like to join the translation administrator roster on Meta, which is fine; however, with Soratako and The Pioneer's resignations, we now have, effectively, only one Japanese speaking wiki creator who is active. We notionally have one other one, but they have no made no log actions or edits on Meta in the preceding thirty calendar days. You seem to have a solid understanding of Content Policy, so I thought I'd reach out to you see if you'd be interested in either (a) self-nominating yourself or (b) me nominating you for wiki creator. You can, of course, focus only on the Japanese language wiki requests, or you could focus on all wiki requests and help out whenever you have time. It does require a community vote, but there's no minimum support threshold, so long as there's at least a rough consensus of support with no meaningful opposing arguments. In this way, it really is a relatively low risk way of expanding your Meta and Miraheze volunteerism, which has been excellent, if you're so inclined. Dmehus (talk) 15:41, 8 September 2020 (UTC)

Cheers,

@Dmehus:Sorry for the late contact.I was busy for a while and couldn't come to the wiki.I'll be checking the changes in the wiki for a while.--松•Matsu (talk) 22:18, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
@: Okay, sounds good. Please do {{ping}} me if you're interested in volunteering as either a translation administrator or as a wiki creator, as I think you'd be great for, and do well in, either capacity. :) Dmehus (talk) 22:20, 1 October 2020 (UTC)
