You can help the CVU by watching the recent changes and undoing unconstructive edits. For more information go to the CVU's home page or see cleaning up vandalism.

Notice to participants at this page about adminship[edit]

Participants here often have to evaluate whether or not a subject is notable, decide if content complies with BLP policy, examine sources, and much more. Well, these are some of the considerations at Wikipedia:Requests for adminship.

So, please consider taking a look at and watchlisting this page:

You could be very helpful in evaluating potential candidates, and maybe even finding out if you would be a suitable RfA candidate.

Many thanks and best wishes,

2016 Community Wishlist Survey proposal to make RC patrol more manageable[edit]

In the 2016 Community Wishlist Survey, I have written a proposal to hide edits from editors you trust in Watchlists and RC pages to make our RC patrol (and watchlists) much more manageable. In fact, this proposal is the only one that directly assists RC patrol. Please consider supporting this proposal with your vote by December 12. Stevie is the man!

Today's Featured Article "view history" toolbar link[edit]

Just a note for recent changes patrollers interested in today's Featured Article. TFA History Link is a user script which adds a link to the top toolbar for viewing Special:History/Today's Featured Article in a Recent Changes format. It is primarily designed for Featured Article contributors, reviewers and recent changes patrollers to quickly see TFA revisions. The source can be found here. Thanks.

Cooperation with Cluebot NG[edit]

I've recently been RC patrolling as a change of pace from other projects, using Special:RecentChanges with a "Likely have problems" filter. It would save a significant amount of time if I could also filter out "changes that were followed by an edit by ClueBot NG" (i.e. already reverted), which would sometimes apply to about half of them. I realize that it may not be proper to specialize this feature with a specific username, but is there an equivalent way of filtering the list?

One could generalize it by filtering out any "changes immediately followed by a changed tagged as a revert", but it's possible for vandals to game that. David Brooks (talk) 14:10, 8 May 2017 (UTC)

Change the autopatrol user right[edit]

Hello community, i have the proposal to change the autopatrol right. The workload for a recent changes patroller is pretty big, don´t exist a system to show the edit was verified as a good edit, what complicates the RC patrol. My proposal is to adopt this system: when a user whithout the autopatrol right makes an edit, the edit will get a red exclamation indicating that the edit was not patrolled. Any user can patrol a edit, and i propose create the Special:Log/patrol to register who patrol a edit. So, if the proposal be approved, as well as creating pages that comply with the rules an user who wants the autopatrol right must make good edits, what will probably ocurr, a user who make good pages make good edits.
