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 their position. Only bureaucrats are able to grant their rollback rights.

Duties and privileges

  • Watching the recent changes and checking edits for vandalism. Always paste {{revert}} on the talk page of a user whose edits have been rollbacked; even IP addresses should be notified.
  • 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 can be marked as patrolled, 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.

Maintaining the rollback tool

  • Patrollers who have not edited in exactly 30 days are considered inactive, and will no longer be displayed 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 if marked as inactive, although the "yellow" coloration of their name and their "custodial" tools of page patrolling and file renaming are 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.

Nomination 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.

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.

I am applying to be a patroller, and feel that I am qualified and able enough for the position. I revert and report any vandalism I see, and I take the time to check through the recent edits to find anything that can be fixed or added onto, as well as marking any spam pages I see for deletion, and adding categories on images/pages that I come across that need them.

I am very consistent in how active I am and have been here on the wiki, and have been active on the Recent Changes/Mainspace/Chat for some time now. I understand how to edit, and what things I don't know yet I will be very willing and able to learn quickly. I have also helped a few other users who have had trouble with editing or had questions, and have let some know of any mistakes they may be making if they are severe enough. I believe that becoming a patroller may give me more tools that I can use to make more useful edits, and, as we have only 3 at the moment, I believe I could help out and have the work be distributed more to make things easier for them. And lastly, I will be committed to giving the time and effort required to take on such a responsibility.


Voting-support Support – I was actually wondering if you will apply. She has probaby been more active in patroller duty than us patrollers recently. she has been with us for about a year now, is dedicated to the mainspace of the wiki, and she has a good grasp of editing. Therefore she has my support. The Cat Master (talk) 22:06, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – Kora has shown that she's more than competent of being a patroller. She knows her way around editing, page formatting and policies. She'll no doubt make for a great patroller. CarloV3r (talk) 22:01, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – Shows the commitment to edit frequently. Very conscientious and the most frequent remover of vandalism. Competent and learns fast. She'd make good use of the tools available. Keeps very close tabs on RC and will make a great patroller. xx Bronkiin (talk) 22:08, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – More than qualified, I have no doubts she'd do very well as a patroller. Like others have said, she's very active in reverting vandalism and checking recent edits in general. --Shockstorm (talk) 22:40, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – Kora Stormblade is more than qualified for the position of Patroller. She is constantly editing the pages on the look out for vandals, and with already being a Chat Moderator she has proven she can handle the tools and pressures of being staff. I say, why not upgrade her to a Patroller! :) Zippertrain85 (talk) 23:02, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – Kora would make an excellent patroller. She's been watching over Recent Changes very closely for a while, and has over a year of experience on the wiki. She reverts vandalism on a daily basis and consistently proves her skills in looking over new edits and also tagging poor-quality images as such. I'm positive that she will be a great patroller. —Atvelonis (talk) 23:33, July 24, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – Kora is an excellent moderator, and I'd like to think she would make an excellent patroller. I personally believe she is more than qualified for it, so I support. TAOA 00:46, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – we need more patrollers so yup here's my vote Blitzbear93 (talk) 00:58, July 25, 2016 (UTC)Blitzbear93

Voting-support Support – Kora is more than qualified. She has been actively editing for a while now. Also she has helped out Crusader with many edits. She knows how to edit and has taught me some editing tricks in the past. She also a while back helped me out on a large editing project that I still value her for toady. So yeah, IMO she is more than qualified to be a patroller. Qahnaarin1997 (talk) 03:08, July 25, 2016 (UTC)

Voting-support Support – Kora is beyond qualified, as many others have already stated. She is very active and stays on top of everything going on. She will be a great asset in this field and deserve it. User:~*LilithRayn*~(User talk:~*LilithRayn*~)
