The English Wiktionary uses sysop-patrolling of Special:RecentChanges, so that vandalism can be picked off more leisurely. Known good accounts can be added to the "autopatrolled" group, so that their contributions don't appear on that list. Known good IP addresses can be added to MediaWiki:Gadget-PatrollingEnhancements.js, as can widely-watchlisted pages where vandalism is quickly reverted anyway.

This "whitelist voting" page is a mechanism for proposing and publicizing the addition of a user or page to that group/script; the principle is to have as "lightweight" of a vote as possible without succumbing to any one person's whims. The existence and purpose of this page were made official by Wiktionary:Votes/pl-2008-09/Whitelisted users autopatrol; the details of its functioning are fairly well established now, but still not official per se.

Also see Special:Log/rights.

New nominations

  • ‎Čumbavamba (talkcontribsrights) — ‎Čumbavamba adds interwiki links to the Latvian Wiktionary; and now adds genders to Latvian entries.
    • Nominated by: Lo Ximiendo (talk) 23:29, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
      • Defer, please. The edits are so rare and so minor that there is little point in whitelisting. Keφr 23:52, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
    • I disagree; there are a lot of edits and they seem good to me. Approved by: —Μετάknowledgediscuss/deeds 18:33, 3 February 2015 (UTC)
  • KarikaSlayer (talkcontribsrights)
    • Nominated by: Chuck Entz (talk) 04:25, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
      • They've been editing in some very difficult languages for a couple of years without a single comment on their talk page- which has to count for something. Chuck Entz (talk) 04:25, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
        • Probably that they have been editing too rarely to be noticed. The list of their contributions fits on a single page for me. Keφr 09:42, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
    • Approved by: --Anatoli T. (обсудить/вклад) 04:56, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
