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.

New nominations

    • Comment: Most of their edits are quite good, especially those involving cleanup of technical details in entries, but I have doubts about their judgment/common sense when it comes to their own content. The sheer volume of their edits and the range of languages they edit make it all the more important to be sure they really understand the requirements of editing a reference work.

    • Comment: I have serious reservations too. Language skills are there and interest in learning languages and tools but quality is lacking at times, relies on guesses. The number of mistakes is not large but can get worse if this editor doesn't pay attention to quality and better checks. Known to use available tools inappropriately, such as providing IPA in translation requests. Prone to ask various questions of other editors on their talk pages, which often have little to do with this dictionary. Abstaining, not opposing the nomination. --Anatoli T.
