Policies and guidelines Patrollers
This page provides information on the "patroller" group on Meta.

Patrollers are a group of users with the ability to patrol new pages, edits on recent changes and quickly revert malicious changes using the rollback feature. It was created per consensus on September 2017. The right is given by default to any administrator, but can be given to trustworthy users upon request on Meta:Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat.

Rollback[edit]

Main article: Meta:Rollback
  • Administrators have the rollback right by default, and do not need to request the right separately.
  • Users with global rollback or in global groups with 'rollback' permissions bundled in them may use that tool on Meta-Wiki.

Removal of access[edit]

Inactivity

Any user account inactive for a period of time of 2 consecutive years will have their permissions removed. Inactivity is defined as no edits or log actions in that 2 years period.

Misuse

Users misusing this tool-set by repeatedly marking bad edits as patrolled or using the rollback tool to revert constructive edits or for edit warring or content disputes may have their permissions revoked. Removal can be done by an administrator at any time, at their discretion. Advance notice is not required, but may be given. Users who have had their permissions revoked may not be re-granted the permission without a formal application.
