Description Pierre Maissa (aka Poppy) 2006-04-05 20:08:55 UTC
I have an idea who could be interesting. I have seen that it was possible to tag
edits on [[Special:Recentchanges]] to show to all users that an edit is good 

It could be really interesting to do the same thing on [[Special:Newpages]]. The
idea is that on some wikipedias (French for example), a good bunch of new
articles are created every day (around 500). So, it's almost impossible to check
every new articles on Recentchanges.

New articles are usually checked on Newpages but I have found out that some 1 or
2-days-old junk articles haven't been deleted and so I think that some bad
articles aren't checked (and some others are checked multiple times). It could
be interesting to allow "old" conributors (# of edits>500 or 1000) and sysops to
tag articles to improve the efficiency and to prevent bad articles to come in
wikipedia. A tag would allow to see immediatly on Newpages which new articles
need to be checked.

Thanks in advance.

Unpatrolled new pages *are* distinguised in Special:Newpages.
