Grants:IdeaLab/Develop a command line tool like Twinkle for patrollers
What is the problem you're trying to solve?
Patrollers nowdays usually use tools like Twinkle to help them with patrolling. Twinkle is a handy and useful tool for new patrollers, but may not for experienced patrollers. So I thought a command line tool may be more useful.
What is your solution?
For example, you try to report a new article that meet the criteria of CSD G11. When you use Twinkle, you have to move your mouse through the screen, find the option "G11", and click your mouse for serval times. That doesn't sound a hard work, but if tens of, or even hundreds of articles are waiting for patrol, such repeating work must be hard. As I expected, using new command tool will be much easier. When you want to report a CSD and warn the creator of that article, you just need to type word "g11" in that tool, and it will do all the rest work. If you don't want to warn the creator, you can just type "g11 -nowarning". Users only need to remember some commands instead of keep finding options and moving their mouse.
Make patrolling works may be easier.
- Excellent idea. It can come together with my idea to develop a web browser for Wikipedians. Carrotkit (talk) 05:55, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
