Description Michael Frey 2008-08-10 08:12:27 UTC
As member of the usergroup "Editors" of de.wikipedia I own the right "patrolmarks", which should allow me to see the patrolmarks but I shouldn't have the permission to patrol edits, because that right is called "patrol" and part of the user group sysop.
(compare with

But in the category namespace I can patroll new pages:

No, you have the 'patrolother' right, that lets use patrol semi-content pages (as defined) that are not fully reviewable. This is by design.
Comment 2 Michael Frey 2008-08-10 09:14:19 UTC
I'm confused, I see the "autopatrolother" right on, but not a "patrolother" right.

I from my point of view autopatrolother mean that that edits from users in the usergroupe "Autoconfirmed" and/or "Editor" in not main spaces are automatical marked as patrolled. So fare, so clear.

But why can an Editor patrol edits in not mainspace from an other user?

When "Editors" own the right "patrolother", why is it not shown on ListGroupRights?
Comment 3 Aaron Schulz 2008-08-10 09:17:29 UTC
Sorry, it's 'review' not 'patrolother' that lets you do this. 'autopatrolother' auto-patrols edits in non-reviewable mainspace.
