Patrollers are a third tier of experienced users who have access to technical features that help with maintenance. Those include monitoring protected pages, monitoring the Recent Changes log for adverse edits, and undoing these actions as well. The FFXIclopedia looks to patrollers to perform essential housekeeping chores that make the job of Administrators a little easier. Please monitor the talk page for info on various projects that need to be completed.

Protected pages

  • There are very few protected pages in the FFXIclopedia. Most notable is the Main Page. You can suggest changes to these pages on their respective talk pages. For more information, please see FFXIclopedia:Article Protection. By default, patrollers do not have the ability to protect or unprotect pages themselves; however, for special projects such ability may be granted on a temporary basis.

Patrolling

  • Patrolling edits is a way to verify that it is a good edit, and to collaborate on filtering spam and vandalism. This feature inspired the name for this group as users who are known to make edits that help make FFXIclopedia the number one Final Fantasy XI resource that it is today.
  • All edits made by Patrollers are automatically marked as Patrolled.

Reverting

  • Patrollers have a faster, automated reversion tool to help them revert vandalism, spam, or other edits that are adverse to FFXIclopedia:Policies.
