Hello, I am going to try to be a Patroller. I know about styling and technical side of the Wikia, at least some of it when to comes to templates. I will not be good about lore, walkthroughs or strategy guides though. Still it is worth a try according to some people of the community.
{{Support}} Been waiting for this for a long, long time. In his three years on the wiki, Rupuzioks has amassed over 35,000 edits adding content, reverting vandalism, correcting new users' edits in RC. He's created thousands upon thousands of articles and has uploaded over 3,000 files ranging from {{Legends|!}} card art to {{Skyrim|!}} audio clips to {{Morrowind|!}} item renders. He also does a certain amount of upkeep with templates and modules, especially for ''Legends''. He's clearly very familiar with the wiki's [[TES:PAG|policies and guidelines]], as well as its editing-related [[TES:SF|style guides]]. Rupuzioks is a knowledgeable, talented, and devoted editor, and a really humble and agreeable person as a whole. Given how we're in need of more patrollers right now, I think he would make a great addition to the team. —[[User:Atvelonis|Atvelonis]] <sup>([[User talk:Atvelonis|talk]])</sup> 20:51, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
{{Support}} Rupuzioks is a highly dedicated contributor to the wiki. The amount of his additions to the wiki is trully impressive (36k contributions in three years is on par with some of the past admins). He is also familiar with the wiki's formatting rules. Moreover, despite not being a patroller, he patrols the Recent Changes, fixing formatting mistakes and reverting vandalism. Therefore, I think that he has all the qualities required of a patroller, and his promotion will greatly benefit the wiki. —[[User:TinyClayMan|TinyClayMan]] <sup>([[User talk:TinyClayMan|talk]])</sup> 21:31, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
{{Support}} I've been waiting for this! As Atvelonis and Tiny have already said above, Rupuzioks has already shown that he is more than capable enough for this position, being knowledgable of the wiki's editing policies and guidelines, as well as being very active. He is definitely suited as a patroller and is much needed, especially now, with how much we could use another staff member. I wholeheartedly support his application. [[User:Rozty|Rozty]] <sup>([[User talk:Rozty|talk]])</sup> 21:34, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
{{Support}} Out of all the people who could apply for this position, Rupuzioks is by far the most in his place to do so. I think I speak for us all when I say we've heard, and seen, great things of Rupz. All that I wanted to say has already been said. [[User:Blademaster Jauffre|Blademaster Jauffre]] <sup>([[User talk:Blademaster Jauffre|talk]])</sup> 23:01, January 27, 2019 (UTC)
{{Support}} I was wondering when he would apply. He has long since proven that he would make an excellent patroller. [[User:The Cat Master|The Cat Master]] <sup>([[User talk:The Cat Master|talk]])</sup> 05:05, January 28, 2019 (UTC)
{{Support}} Rupuzioks has been an editing tank for a while now. Of course I support this application! {{User:Ottoman Hold/SigReal|05:53:26|January 29, 2019}}
{{Support}} Will be a great addition and has long been doing the job without the title. About time too! —[[User:Bronkiin|Bronkiin]] <sup>([[User talk:Bronkiin|talk]])</sup> 14:31, January 29, 2019 (UTC)
{{Support}} Very pleased with his work and his ability to work effectively with other editors. The Morrowind Factions page would not look nearly as nice as it does now without his skillz and help.

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 the chat or 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."

  • 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.


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

EbonySkyrimTalkContribsEdit count

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.
