A patroller is a user who has access to a few additional features to help with checking new edits and combating vandalism.
What features do patrollers have?
- Marking high-quality page revisions as "patrolled" to help with the reverting of poor or bad-faith edits.
- Deleting page revisions and hiding usernames for removing inappropriate content.
- Blocking users and IP addresses who are vandalizing the wiki.
- Quick reversion ("rollback") of undesirable edits.
How do I become a patroller?
Patrollers are usually selected on an as-needed basis only. Because the main purpose of the patroller program is to mark good-quality page revisions for the aid of preserving article quality, users with good-quality edits and regular activity under their name are usually seen as potential candidates to join the program.
Users who want to become patrollers have the ability to submit a request for patroller rights on the talk page. Admins may also nominate users to join the patroller group. The following requirements have been set forth for those requesting patroller status:
- Users must have at least 500 edits or sysop status on another wiki (please link to the wiki).
- A member of CyberAcme for at least four months.
- No history of vandalism, abuse of CyberAcme, or compromised accounts for the user in question.
- No history of blocking on the basis of harassment or personal attacks.
All requests will be reviewed by the administration, who will decide whether or not to approve or deny the request. There is no limit to the amount of times a user may apply for patroller rights. However, users must wait at least one month to submit a new request after any unsuccessful requests.
Administrators who have resigned their status or are inactive are automatically granted patroller status unless otherwise noted.
