Description Guillaume Paumier 2006-11-12 19:32:47 UTC

When the ''Patrolled edits'' feature is enabled, some users can choose to mark
all their edits as patrolled by default.

If a new page is created by someone who has not checked this box in his
Preferences (or by someone to whom the box isn't available), the new page is
considered as unpatrolled and is highlighted in yellow in [[Special:Newpages]].
Trusted users can mark this page as patrolled and the yellow highlight disappears.

But if someone creates a new page (unpatrolled) that is edited by a trusted
user, the page stays unpatrolled in Special:Newpages (with the yellow
highlight), although the trusted user's edit is marked as patrolled.

Doesn't make sense. The trusted user's edit was patrolled, sure, but they might
not have touched any of the stereotypically dodgy content introduced in the
creation process.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-11-12 19:39:42 UTC
I don't think this is necessarily a good feature.  What if the edit was just to
fix a typo and the user wasn't really paying attention?  Marking a paged as
patrolled should be effortless enough that automatic assumptions like this can
be minimized.
Comment 3 Guillaume Paumier 2006-11-12 19:41:21 UTC
Ok I get it. Thanks for your comments.
Comment 4 Rotem Liss 2006-11-13 14:56:27 UTC
Also note that the "trusted user" can mark the edit as patrolled by himself,
because only users who can mark the edits as patrolled have this checkbox.
