Sysop notes: make sure you go to Special:Preferences and in the "Editing" tab, check off "mark my edits as patrolled by default". --Connel MacKenzie 18:22, 8 September 2006 (UTC)

I don't see such an option.

What about ambiguous edits?[edit]

The advice reads:

The edit is nonsense but not offensive
Rollback the edits or delete the article and, if you wish, warn or block the user (check their contributions/talk page for context).
The edit is good but not formatted correctly
Either fix the edit or, if you know that AutoFormat will pick it up, leave it be. You may also need to leave a note on the user talk page explaining the problem.
The edit is perfect
If the user doesn't yet have a talk page, and you see them making one or two good edits, feel free to welcome them - either with a personal message or if you don't have time, slap on a {{welcome}}, {{welcomeip}} or {{welcomepedia}}.

But what about the very common case that the patrolman just doesn't know whether the edit is "perfect" or "nonsense"? E.g., some user (about whom the patrolman knows nothing, possibly even an anon IP) adds a translation (about which the patrolman knows nothing) to a page.—msh210 21:42, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

In general assume good faith - adding translations, if it is done correctly, is almost always (mark ?) able, and the same is true for correct (or very nearly correct) new foreign entries as these tend to be added by visiting foreign Wiktionarians. Conrad.Irwin 21:47, 13 February 2008 (UTC)
