The English Wiktionary uses sysop-patrolling of Special:RecentChanges (this link contains a filter that only works for users with the
patrol right), so that vandalism can be picked off more leisurely. Known good accounts can be added to the “autopatroller” group, so that their contributions don’t appear on that list. Known good IP addresses can be added to MediaWiki:Gadget-PatrollingEnhancements.js, as can widely-watchlisted pages where vandalism is quickly reverted anyway.
This “whitelist voting” page is a mechanism for proposing and publicizing the addition of a user or page to that group/script; the principle is to have as “lightweight” of a vote as possible without succumbing to any one person’s whims. The existence and purpose of this page were made official by Wiktionary:Votes/pl-2008-09/Whitelisted users autopatrol; the details of its functioning are fairly well established now, but still not official per se.
Also see Special:Log/rights.
The guidelines are: remove entries here that are stagnant for two or more weeks. Remove whitelisted entries after a couple of days.

- Approved by: Equinox ◑ 16:51, 17 December 2021 (UTC) Procedural note (??): I wouldn't vote or approve if I didn't agree with it, but Svartava2 was nagging me about voting and approving and I said more than once "I will never create a vote I am asked to create". OTOH I think he/she is fine. So whether that's vanguardism or the new IRC kid who wants ops, I dunno. Yeah. Approved, shut up, Equinox.
