To help get you started contributing, we've created a tips for new contributors page, full of helpful links about policies and guidelines and style, as well as some important information on copyleft and basic stuff like how to edit a page. If you need help, check out Help, or post a message in the travellers' pub. If you are familiar with Wikipedia, take a look over some of the differences here.
- It's definitely at least a usable article. You might want to add descriptions of the neighboring towns to the "Go next" section, but it's looking nice. -- Ryan • (talk) • 01:41, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia survey
If you were a patroller, you would be able to revert edits easier. User:Ikan Kekek, I'm sure this isn't within my abilities. Do you agree that JakeOregon should become a patroller? JakeOregon, would you be okay with being a patroller? --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 02:39, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
- Sure, that sounds helpful when handling repeated vandalism. Is that the "rollback" feature I've seen in other's edit summaries? And is there a public discussion or is the patroller function given directly by an administrator? JakeOregon (talk) 05:01, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
- I would think it would be within your abilities, SelfieCity. Did you check and see whether that is an option for you under "User contributions -> user rights management"? I think any admin can make someone a patroller, but if I'm wrong and you don't see the option, let me know and I'll gladly take care of this. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:53, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
- @Ikan Kekek: According to the "Change user groups" button, it says there are three things I can do: add autopatroller status (not patroller), make an IP block exemption, and allow a user to make template edits. But I can't add patroller status.
- We don't have many patrollers, and I think we could do with having a few more. They're useful for patrolling edits and rolling back edits with one press of a button, but don't require nominations.
- Also, JakeOregon, you will find WV:Recent changes patrol relevant. It gives you the ability to mark certain edits as not harmful. And while not everything at the administrator's handbook is relevant to you currently, the section about rollbacks is relevant. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 16:31, 18 November 2018 (UTC)
