Patrollers are users granted the rollback tool to keep the wiki free of any vandalism. With a single click, they can revert edits. Patrollers must apply for their position, and be approved via a community consensus. Only bureaucrats are able to grant their rollback rights.

Duties and privileges

  • Watching the recent changes and checking edits for vandalism. They are responsible for reviewing edits made to all namespaces except for those on Special:Forum.
  • Reporting vandalism to the notice board or notifying an admin on their talk page. In the event that an admin is unable to block a vandal, place {{warning}} on the vandal's talk page. This may discourage further vandalism.
  • Patrollers are encouraged to add high traffic articles, good articles, and featured articles to their watchlist to help prevent vandalism.
  • Patrollers have the ability to move pages in the [[File:]] namespace. Images should be given names appropriate to their composition and should not contain an overabundance of numerical characters. File:2334234739784.png is discouraged, while File:Stormcloak Encampment.png is more meaningful and easier to locate.
  • Scout Special:NewPages for recently made articles that may not meet our style and formatting guidelines. Articles found here should be marked as patrolled after being reviewed, by scrolling to the bottom of the article and clicking [Mark this page as patrolled]. This link only appears if the page is opened through Special:NewPages. Before marking a page as patrolled, ensure it contains an infobox, wikilinks, and appropriate categories. Flag the page as a {{stub}} or as needing {{attention}} wherever applicable.
  • Maintain an overall mature and friendly demeanor when interacting with other editors.
  • Practice diplomacy when users make mistakes.
  • Pointing new users to policies and guidelines when necessary.
  • Remaining in contact with other staff through the wiki's official Slack channel.

Maintaining the rollback tool

  • Patrollers who have not edited in exactly 30 days are considered inactive, and will no longer be displayed as active on our staff list unless they can prove they have made a steady return.
  • Patrollers who have gone "rogue" and turned into obvious vandals will have their rollback tool removed automatically. They can petition to have it returned on the consensus track form.
  • Patrollers will not lose their rollback tool or their custodial tools of page patrolling and file renaming if marked as inactive, although the "yellow" coloration of their name is indefinitely revoked. To request that a user be relieved of their rollback tool due to abuse, please petition on the consensus track form. Format the request similar to the rollback nomination layout.

Activity chart

This chart of active admins and patrollers who engage in Recent Changes review will help to coordinate times of the week during which one or several of us are unavailable. Ideally, every day should be pretty evenly spread out in terms of availability. A regular day means that the user in question will review Recent Changes to the best of their ability, as usual; an "off-day" is simply one during which they know that they will be routinely unavailable. Staff should not feel pressured to check Recent Changes during these "off-days."

Requirements

  • Been actively contributing to the mainspace for a period of at least three months.
  • Possess a minimum of 2500 mainspace edits
  • Demonstrate superior editing skills in compliance with the current policies and style guidelines.
  • Practice diplomacy when users make mistakes.
  • Direct new and unaware users to policy and help pages.
  • Serve as a mentor and community role model.
  • Maintain an active presence on the wiki.

Exceptions to these rules can be made, but never assume you are the exception to the rules.

Applying

Nomination and Application archive

It is highly recommended that you speak with one or more current patrollers and an administrator about any interest you have in the position before you apply. This is not a requirement, but it is a good idea to seek the advice of experienced editors in order to gain a better understanding of what you would have to do for the job and if you are actually ready for it.


How to vote/example

I nominate EbonySkyrim for the title of patroller. She has been with us awhile and she has been a help and pleasure the whole time. I have no doubt that she can handle this.

Today I would like to offer my help and apply for the position of patroller. Besides enthusiastic screening of images and editing when I have time, I also regularly check recent changes and report vandalism when I find something. I believe I can help by not just keeping an eye on formatting but also overseeing compliance of the rules with a diplomatic approach and helping to maintain friendly and open-minded community. Although lore will never be my thing I'm open to learn and grow with this role and act with this attitude.

Support

Voting-support.svg Support – Especially with the uptick in activity and more content being released for Online, there is no other user I can think of more suited to be a patroller at the moment than Frisy. She has demonstrated good encyclopaedic experience and I believe she has an appropriate and ideal demeanour becoming of staff on the Wiki. Although absent for some time, the contributions she has made in the past several months especially and her easy adaption to new policies demonstrates a positive commitment to the growth and improvement of the Wiki. I expect her integration into the staff group to be seamless. With extra qualified hands available to patrol, the burden of maintaining the RC backlog should be easier, especially on the other patrollers, and her continued additions to articles with new content is always a great help. I have no reservations concerning this application. Grey Fox (talk) 19:28, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Voting-support.svg Support – Frisy has been a steadfast contributor of ESO content for a long time, and her help with Recent Changes over the past few weeks has been valuable to the patrollers. I have always found Frisy amicable and receptive to feedback about her editing techniques, and able to coordinate with other editors where needed. She's clearly dedicated to the health of the wiki, and I have no doubt that she'll make an excellent patroller. —Atvelonis (talk) 20:00, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Voting-support.svg Support – A great candidate for being a patroller. She has a lot of experience with creating articles and adding photos to ESO articles, so she knows both the SaF and the editing tools. And she is also quite dedicated – not everyone can [find content the wiki lacks for 365 consecutive days to] get an Akatosh badge. TinyClayMan (talk) 20:03, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Voting-support.svg Support – Frisy is definitely a perfect candidate for being a patroller. --Rupuzioks (talk) 20:09, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Voting-support.svg Support – I see Frisy a lot adding or editing Online articles and, especially with the next chapter around the corner, I see no other reason why she shouldn't join the staff team as a Patroller! She is not afraid to change anything she sees is out of place and is an extreme help should I miss something out (which is something I tend to do). --ElderChicken (talk) 23:36, 26 November 2020 (UTC)

Voting-support.svg Support – I've been hoping that FrisyN would stick around when I saw her adding images a few years back. I was so impressed with her dedication that I nominated her for Member of the Month, and unlike many users, she kept editing (barring the break in between) and has continued to add loads of content to the wiki. I was hoping that Frisy would apply for a while now; she has shown to be very knowledgeable about formatting and guidelines, is quite approachable, and diligent in checking Recent Changes as it is. Full support from me. Ottoman Hold Message Me My Action 05:12:14 November 27, 2020

Voting-support.svg Support – I often see FrisyN's edits when I create Weekly Updates and I always see them as quality edits. And those edits were shown as notable ones in the updates multiple times. FrisyN edits the wiki on a regular basis, so they'd make a great patroller, who would visit the wiki often to see if the new edits are correct. I fully support them. Stygies VIII (talk) 23:58, 29 November 2020 (UTC)

Voting-support.svg Support – Long overdue haha, I'm sure they will be very capable in the role :) The Rim of the Sky (talk) 06:38, 30 November 2020 (UTC)
