The English Wiktionary uses sysop-patrolling of Special:Recentchanges, 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 User:Connel MacKenzie/patrolled.js. This "whitelist voting" page is a mechanism for proposing and publicizing the addition of a user 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 Wiktionary:Whitelist/transient.

New nominations

  • Any user Foo editing the page User:Foo/Sandbox. (This will have to be via the JS, of course.)
    • Nominated by: —msh210 17:51, 16 December 2008 (UTC)
    • Currently, the JS has code to mark any edit by a user to his/her own user-page, with a comment "TODO: subpages". Do we want to do subpages in general, as the comment suggests? If so, that seems pretty easy — just replace if ( ('User:'+editor) == wiktPageTitle ) with if ( ('User:'+editor) == wiktPageTitle.split('/')[0] ) — though I haven't tested that. —RuakhTALK 02:34, 19 December 2008 (UTC)
      • Not in general, no. Some subpages are simply promotional material or other inappropriate content. --EncycloPetey 01:10, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
      • I agree with EP. But /Sandbox is common enough that I think we should whitelist it just to get it off the unpatrolled list.—msh210 19:36, 30 December 2008 (UTC)
    • Approved by: —RuakhTALK 03:25, 31 December 2008 (UTC)
