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)

:Well, since the quick reports come before normal reports in the workflow, the table might better be put at the top of the page; this would also preserve the functionality of the + button at the top for adding a discussion. An alternative would be to move [[ArchWiki talk:Reports]] to [[ArchWiki talk:Maintenance Team]], move [[ArchWiki:Reports]] to [[ArchWiki talk:Reports]] and leave only the table in [[ArchWiki:Reports]].

I've gone through a number of old redirects, and I've updated the pages that linked to them to point to the proper page, which means the old redirect pages can be deleted. Is there a special place or method to report these pages? I did see that some of them were deleted via recent changes patrolling, but I think a better way to report them is needed. Should a semi-permanent section on [[ArchWiki:Reports]] be created to list them so that an administrator can go through the whole list?

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:

More detailed investigation is probably also in order...

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. We should probably restructure the article a bit, or add a new section? Do you have any ideas? -- Kynikos (talk) 14:21, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
I read just Special:NewPages along with Special:DoubleRedirects and Special:BrokenRedirects. I don't have time for more.
I don't think we need to mention them explicitly. -- Karol (talk) 14:57, 25 February 2014 (UTC)
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)
