Patrolled edits is a feature which allows specific users to mark items in recent changes as having been "patrolled" or "approved". By default this is only available if you have sysop permissions.

This feature is useful when reviewing recent changes for undesirable edits, link spam and vandalism. This allows people (with permission to do so) to coordinate their patrolling activity, such that edits get checked over once, with less wasted effort (different people checking the same edit).

This feature also allow setting trustworthy users' edits to be automatically patrolled, so that the people who review recent changes need not spend time to make unnecessary review.

Marking edits as patrolled

To mark an edit as patrolled
  1. Access Special:RecentChanges
    Changes which are not patrolled will be indicated with a red exclamation mark (!)
  2. Click the diff link next to an edit
  3. To mark the edit as patrolled, click the Mark as patrolled link

Hiding patrolled edits from recent changes

Patrolled edits can be hidden from recent changes by adding &hidepatrolled=1 to the URL in the following form:

https://wiki.soylentnews.org/w/index.php?title=Special:RecentChanges&hidepatrolled=1

Note: this works only for users with the patrol or patrolmarks right. This might change after mediazilla:42246 is solved in future.

Marker

The formatting of the unpatrolled edit marker can be altered using CSS. The exclamation mark displayed on the Recent changes log is styled using the span.unpatrolled class.
