Random proposal◄ Admins and patrollers  The survey has concluded. Here are the results!

Mark all consecutive edits by same user as patrolled

  • Problem: Often users (especially unregistered and new ones) make lot of consecutive edits that can be rollbacked and checked in the history diff at once with a single click, but those will result unverified unless every single edit is marked as such one by one, which is tedious. As a result, no patroller uses this feature on my wiki.
  • Who would benefit: patrollers, mostly.
  • Proposed solution: "mark N edits as verified" link or something like that, in recent changes, history and such, just how it's available for rollbacks.

  • I believe the user script here does what you want? Not sure what wiki's it's available for though. ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:17, 23 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I believe it works for any wiki. Note that there may be forks, the most up-to-date one is on cswiki. --Matěj Suchánek (talk) 08:25, 24 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
    I used your tool since I discovered it and I can say that any patroller should have/use it to save a huge amount of time. I agree that it should be installed by default in any wiki as a standard tool. --Andyrom75 (talk) 18:39, 11 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • This would not be a problem to start with if you could simply patrol edits from recent changes instead of having to open each individual revision. I do support the idea though. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 23:03, 24 November 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't this the same as rollback? Firestar464 (talk) 01:12, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • In ruwiki we have flagged rewiews and patrollers just mark last edit as patrolled and next edits can be autopatrolled if maked by users with such flag. I do not understand a problem.Carn (talk) 06:01, 9 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
