Current requests for patroller[change source]

User:Derpdart56[change source]

I've gotten better at editing over the year I've been here and I'd like to start helping out with patrolling stuff. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Derpdart56 (talkcontribs) 15:58, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
(Non-administrator observation) The user has created around 70 articles, most of which appear to be uncategorised, unwikified stubs. --IWI (talk) 16:04, 26 January 2021 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done We only give out patroller to people with a history of good articles. As mentioned by IWI most of your articles are not up to the standards needed by a patroller. -Djsasso (talk) 18:51, 26 January 2021 (UTC)

I'd like to patrol new pages. --Saroj Uprety (talk) 02:31, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done I looked at some of the articles you've created. The biographical articles I checked don't appear to me to meet notability requirements. Since the patroller right here includes autopatrol, and the articles you've created need patrolling, giving the patroller right would not be appropriate right now. --Auntof6 (talk) 02:37, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
Okay, thanks, but all the articles I've made are from enwiki and they meet the criteria of notability there. Saroj Uprety (talk) 03:12, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
@Saroj Uprety: Two comments about that:
  • First, the enwiki articles may show notability, but the articles here don't have everything that enwiki has. You may have removed the part(s) of the articles that show notability. To show notability, the article has to state something that makes the subject notable and support it with a reliable source. As an example of this, Shirley Setia says only "Shirley Setia is a singer and actress from Auckland." Being a singer and actress is not notable by itself. Carter Cruise also doesn't state anything that indicates notability.
  • To use one of the same articles as an example, the enwiki article on Shirley Setia has a notability tag on it, so it may not meet the criteria there, either.
I didn't check all your articles, but those two are of concern. --Auntof6 (talk) 07:39, 30 January 2021 (UTC)
ok, Thank you. Saroj Uprety (talk) 10:12, 31 January 2021 (UTC)

User:ShadowBallX[change source]

I have been editing here for around 4 months, with a total of 115 pages created, and 3 deleted pages (Two QD A3 from October, and one QD G7). I think I am ready to request for Patroller. ShadowBallX (talk) 16:07, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
(Non-administrator observation) Statements are  Confirmed as per [1]. DJRC (talk) 16:18, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done I took a look at a handful of articles and they mostly all appear to be single sentence stubs or close to it. What we need to see for patroller is decent size articles that show your ability to write Simple English. I am unable to get a sense of that looking at your articles. -Djsasso (talk) 16:31, 1 February 2021 (UTC)
(Non-administrator observation). See @ShadowBallX:, for getting patrolling rights, you have to simplify the articles as well during or after creating it, as stated by Djsasso. Only 110+ articles created doesn't give you good sign to assign the rights. See WP:Patrollers for more information. You can still try you level best to do editing in this simplewiki.DJRC (talk) 08:28, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
(Non-administrator observation) @TTP1233: I think ShadowBallX's articles were simple and good. No, they weren't the longest articles in the world, but take a look at some of them, they are not awful articles by any means, and they are definitely simple. --Belwine💬📜 08:32, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
oh and with "only 110+" articles being created, it is worth noting that Darkfrog24 created 168 articles at patroller request, which is not too far off, so I think ShadowBallX could get the patroller right in the future. --Belwine💬📜 08:35, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Correct! Still most of the users never get this right either of two reason. 1. User edited less that 3 months. 2. Article simplication is failed.DJRC (talk) 08:50, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
Theirs were also mostly longer articles (ie picked at random from articles created back then Common mist frog). Single sentence articles do not really show that you understand writing Simple English with simple sentence structure etc if you are only using a single sentence. Remember the main purpose on this wiki of the patroller flag is not to patrol articles but to have your articles marked autopatrolled. Single sentence stubs most definitely still need to be patrolled. -Djsasso (talk) 14:39, 2 February 2021 (UTC)
