If nothing appears, be sure to verify that you've put the above code on the wiki you use the tool on, not per se here on Meta. Note that this tool is optimized for WebKit (Safari, Chrome) browsers. It should also work fine in Mozilla (Firefox). Internet Explorer will not be supported.
Also clear your cache and do a hard refresh. If you encounter any issues, please let me know!
How to clear cache
Note: After saving, you may have to bypass your browser's cache to see the changes. Mozilla / Firefox / Safari: hold down Shift while clicking Reload, or press Ctrl-Shift-R (Cmd-Shift-R on Apple Mac); IE: hold Ctrl while clicking Refresh, or press Ctrl-F5; Konqueror: simply click the Reload button, or press F5; Opera users may need to completely clear their cache in Tools→Preferences.
This is perhaps the most important feature of the tool. If you are logged in with an account that has the patrolright on that wiki, patrolled edits can be hidden from the list by checking the "Unpatrolled only"-checkbox. The recent changes list is also refreshed on-the-fly, so patrolled edits hide right away (either because you patrolled them, or because someone else did). This enables easy live-patrolling without wasting time clicking links that somebody else has already patrolled in the mean time !
Additionally it is also ideal to work on an anonymous checklist (such as on Commons) on your own (or with others at the same time) as patrolled edits automaticly hide from the list, leaving only behind what needs to be done from that timeframe, untill the message "Nothing matched your criteria" appears at which you know you're done with this list. See also Timeframe below for more info on how to deal with these checklists enabling you to cut out a piece from the history and view only that part.
On request, I've added to version 0.5.3+ an option to Skip a diff. By clicking the "Skip"-tab in the Diff-view the diffnumber will be remembered through this session and both the AutoDiff system and the "Next »"-tab will skip diffs that have been Skipped this way.
- When a diff has been skipped it will remain in the feed marked blue. If you want to get a skipped diff back in the normal system, simply click it's (diff)-link again and click the "Unskip"-tab.
On request, I've added to version 0.7.+ an option to query results based on Username aswell. By putting in an IP-address or username in this field there will be only contributions shown from that user.
This can be used as with MassPatrol to easily patrol a series of edits by one particular user.
Timeframing allows list generation from a certain point in time. When using Timeframing, the "Untill"-field is required, and optionally the "From"-field can be set aswell. This allows a list to be generated of, for example, a day-part in the Anonymous checklists. When there is nothing left in that timeframe, it'll say "Nothing matched your criteria".
- The timestamps need to be in a very strict 14-digit format: YYYYMMDDHHMMSS (Year, month, day, hour, minute, second).
- For instance, for 19 June 2013 01:16:33 use
Click the following link to view edits of yesterday between 6 PM and 7 PM: Click here.
- Stands for Ascending, means oldest first. So the items get newer down the list.
- (default) stands for Descending, means newest first. Here the items get older down the list.
The value in this inputfield is used as the number of seconds the script will wait, after a completed refresh, to refresh again.
Default: 3 seconds
An average broadband cable connection should have no problem with "0". The interval timer starts after a completed refresh, so even on "0" it will never refresh while there is a refresh being loaded.
Automatic edit summary
Edits that have automatic edit summaries are recognized and will be highlighted for easy reference. See an example below:
Foobar . . ←Blanked the page
- When you enable AutoDiff the script will automaticly load the next (diff)-link from the list for you when you have succesfully marked a contribution as patrolled.
- From top
- This checkbox (which also affects the "Next »"-tab in the Diff-view) makes the script pick from the top of the list rather than the bottom of it.
- Please use the AutoDiff-feature knowing that when you click a [mark as patrolled]-link there will be no time left to act upon the contribution (like reverting it). So, if you need to rollback or anything, with AutoDiff Enabled: Do that first, and mark as patrolled when ready to go to the next Diff!
- => If you don't like this, don't use AutoDiff. If you do like to automatically have it grab the next (diff)-link without having to scroll down to the list, there is a "Next »"-tab on the top right of every Diff-frame, this will also load the next (diff)-link when clicked, just like AutoDiff does.
By heavy request as of version 0.8+ this feature blindly patrols all edits in the list untill it is exhausted. AutoDiff has to be enabled and to avoid mistakes it can only be used if there is atleast 1 content filter utilized (ie. Userfilter).
When enabled, all usernames in the feed are checked against the blacklist of the Countervandalism Network. If a match is found, the username will be bolden in red, as demonstrated below:
When you hover over the icon the reason and the adder of the entry will be shown in a tooltip.
Userfilter, checking WHOIS (for IP-addresses) and a link to Luxo's cross-wiki contributions tool.When hovering a username in the recent changes list a toolbox like the one on the right will appear with links to a few popular tools such as adding the username to the

Install as Gadget
(These instructions are for sysops who can edit in the MediaWiki:-namespace)
- Copy the the Install snippet to your wiki's MediaWiki:Gadget-RTRC.js (just like when you would install it in your user script)
- Create MediaWiki:Gadget-RTRC with something like the following:
