Is is really necessary to distinguish between "Quick Reports" and "Reports?" Why not simply direct maintenance team members to the already-existing [[ArchWiki:Reports]] page. (We can add a table at the bottom for use with Wiki Monkey.) -- [[User:Pointone|pointone]] 12:01, 14 February 2012 (EST)

I have the feeling that [[Special:NewPages]] is somewhat overlooked in regard to patrolling. It should be definitely mentioned on this page, here are a few common mistakes that should be looked for:

* wrong [[Help:Style#Title|title]]

* wrong [[Help:I18n#Article_titles|localized title]]

* missing interlanguage links

More detailed investigation is probably also in order...

New pages patrolling

I have the feeling that Special:NewPages is somewhat overlooked in regard to patrolling. It should be definitely mentioned on this page, here are a few common mistakes that should be looked for:

Well, of course we can mention it, however Special:RecentChanges does show newly created pages too, so patrolling Special:NewPages could be presented as a less demanding task for those who would like to patrol but don't have enough time to cover all the recent changes.

I read just Special:NewPages along with Special:DoubleRedirects and Special:BrokenRedirects. I don't have time for more.

Well, a link to Special:NewPages is now easily accessible from the sidebar, see MediaWiki talk:Sidebar#Link to NewPages?. -- Kynikos (talk) 10:15, 27 February 2014 (UTC)
