Auto-refresh of Special:RecentChanges

One feature that User:Connel MacKenzie/patrolled.js offered was the ability to automatically refresh Special:RecentChanges every so often. I imagine that this was mostly useful when it was the only automated form of patrolling (i.e., before we started adding people to the "autopatroller" group), but I figured I might as well ask — is this a feature I should add to MediaWiki:Gadget-PatrollingEnhancements.js? (I'm thinking it would be off by default, but admins could add something like GPE.refreshEveryNMinutes = 5; to their Special:MyPage/common.js if they wanted it.) Would anyone use that, or should I not bother? —RuakhTALK 23:01, 4 April 2012 (UTC)

I wouldn't use it; when I patrol, I tend to pull up Recentchanges, hide patrolled edits, set it to 500 items, turn on Lupin popups and take my time going through things, refreshing manually when necessary. - -sche (discuss) 00:24, 5 April 2012 (UTC)


Er, what are the rules for making a rollbacker on here? Personally, I like that this isn't too ruly, but I feel like I don't always know what's going on. --Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 15:07, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

I don’t think there are any rules about it. It doesn’t come up very often. Usually if someone is ready to be a rollbacker, he’s ready to be an admin. I seem to remember only one case where someone wanted to just be a rollbacker (he wanted to fight vandalism, but didn’t care to make edits or do any other kind of work). It wasn’t a problem, and it doesn’t require a vote. —Stephen (Talk) 04:14, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

only sysops?

In steps 1,2,3 could we change "sysop" to something like "sysop or bureaucrat", maybe even allowing autopatrollers and rollbackers to have a say? SemperBlotto (talk) 15:28, 28 October 2013 (UTC)

I wouldn't go as far as autopatroller. Otherwise, sounds good. (You know, you could just act as if you're still a sysop and no-one would complain. We miss your patrolling.) —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 01:04, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
The use of "sysop" is not so much an expression of policy as a statement of fact: the page is protected so that only sysops can edit it. (Naturally, we could change that protection level if we wanted, but the next level down is "autoconfirmed", which basically just means that the editor has been around a few days. Unless there's a strong reason to open up the page to non-sysops, I think we're better off leaving it as it is.) —RuakhTALK 02:56, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
I think lowering the protection level would be reasonable. There are a number of editors who have been around quite a while but are not admins for whatever reason. I don't think it's really necessary to limit the procedure to admins, as it's not exactly something likely to be abused. --Yair rand (talk) 04:15, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Request for autopatrolled flag

I think being in the autopatrolled group might solve this problem (permalink) for me. Is someone willing to nominate me on this page? Mathonius (talk) 03:45, 21 November 2013 (UTC)

Nomination suggestion

I suggest adding Taokailam (talkcontribs) to the autopatrolled group, a Hebrew editor that has been doing good, careful edits with overly descriptive summaries for a while now. —Enosh (talk) 10:42, 20 November 2016 (UTC)

Request for template editor rights

If I may, I would like to request that template editor rights be granted to my account. (On a related note, I get the feeling that there are probably more accounts that could also do with these rights here and that the "template editor" user group is currently underused.) —suzukaze (tc) 10:45, 31 December 2016 (UTC)
