Patroller is a user status that can be given to Wikispecies users.

Patroller Edit

In the box at the left you can see the near live total number of unpatrolled pages, in need of being patrolled, and here is a page with live online made list.

Created files and edits by IP-addresses and users who have not yet been given autopatrolled user rights, need to be patrolled and checked that they follow Wikispecies rules and standards.

Those files have a red ! in front of them on the list at Special:RecentChanges.

At the bottom right corner those files have a link, [Mark as patrolled], which if the file is correct, can be clicked by an Admin or Patroller so the file gets patrolled.

Please consider carrying out daily patrols of new pages and edits made by users who are not autopatrolled.

Status Edit

The user right Patroller gives the user a right to:

  • have their page edits automatically marked as patrolled
  • patrol new pages and mark them as patrolled

Assigning Edit

Patroller status can be assigned by any Administrator, and may be removed by any Administrator in cases of abuse.

Requests for patroller rights Edit

If you wish to request patroller rights for yourself or another user, please explain here why. If there is a decision to grant the request, one of the administrator will give you the user rights. You can use {{subst:RFP|Username|Reason for requesting patrol rights}} when making a request to automatically create the form. Please replace "Reason for requesting patrol rights" with a brief reason for requesting the right. Do not make any other changes and do not fill in the section heading.

Ameisenigel (talkcontribsblock logall projects) Edit

Hello. I would like to offer my help with patrolling here on Wikispecies, since this page says that we have a backlog of more than 300 unpatrolled edits. I have made more than 2,000 edits here and am active as a translation administrator since June 2021. I also have some experience with patrolling on Wikidata, Commons and Meta. Thanks, Ameisenigel (talk) 21:46, 21 December 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
