General discussion[edit]


Are Patrollers even a thing anymore? I can't help but notice there are only 4, two of whom have not edited in well over a year. The page states they are selected on an "as-need" basis. I put forth that they are no longer needed. We already have administrators and rollbackers who fill this role. --Emblem 1.jpg Rusty - 112 00:49, 11 September 2012 (EDT)

Not sure if it is a "thing", but I see this usergroup as a necessary addition to the wiki's environment; they would take certain duties (i.e. deletion, removal, rename) of administrators whenever the administrators are not around.— subtank 01:23, 11 September 2012 (EDT)
I agree with Subtank. However, we should probably demote the inactive Patrollers and add some new, responsible users to the group.--Spartacus, Halopedia Administrator Talk 13:54, 11 September 2012 (EDT)

Adding Patrollers onto the list[edit]

Someone add Spartawhale. --I don't know how to deal with signatures... 20:19, 27 September 2017 (EDT)

I thought it was the responsibility of the Patroller to add themselves in. But I will bring it up with the two patrollers missing if they wanna be listed.-CIA391 (talk) 08:07, 28 September 2017 (EDT)

Request: Xamikaze330 (Passed)[edit]

Date: 06/29/14

Reason for request: Hey people, I'm a regular (daily) user here on Halopedia since March 20, 2011, with an edit count of 22,047. I'm a rollbacker here, and would like to request to become a Patroller here to help step in and assist with maintaining the wiki, and taking care of some of the workload when other admins/patrollers are occupied and unable to do so, like deleting images and image revisions, and having additional tools to assist in fighting vandalism. If there is a need for another Patroller, then may I humbly submit my candidacy. --Xamikaze330 [Transmission|Commencing] 14:32, 29 June 2014 (EDT)Xamikaze330

Request is granted.--Spartacus TalkContribs 11:42, 2 July 2014 (EDT)

Request: Arcmind (Passed)[edit]

Date: 03/1/17

Reason for request: Hello fellow Spartans, I am Arcmind, an admin over on Destinypedia where I help run, maintain and improve the wiki. Since things there have more or less begun to take shape, I'll have more time on my hands to help out here. I am on the wiki daily - though I tend to lurk around - and would be able to help with Vandalism and any other maintenance tasks that might require an extra set of hands. I am always willing to help out however I can, and can perform whatever tedious or otherwise difficult jobs normal editors might not have the tools or the time to do including images and templates. So if you guys could use an errand guy, perhaps you might consider myself as a candidate for the program. stickArcmind Execute long hold for reactivation. stick AI-COM/ACMD SIGNOFF 16:43, 1 March 2017 (EST)

  • Support.svg Support - Arcmind satisfies all the requirements. As a sysop on Destinypedia, he has experience using extra tools in a responsible manner, something I have witnessed firsthand.--Spartacus TalkContribs 10:55, 2 March 2017 (EST)
  • Support.svg Support - Per above. --Jugus (talk) 13:45, 2 March 2017 (EST)

Tick.JPG Done--Spartacus TalkContribs 12:37, 4 March 2017 (EST)

Thanks everyone, I shall endeavor to be worthy of your trust! stickArcmind Execute long hold for reactivation. stick AI-COM/ACMD SIGNOFF 16:22, 4 March 2017 (EST)

Request: CIA391 (Passed)[edit]

Date: 14/3/17

Reason for request: Hello everyone. I am CIA391, a current Rollbacker on here. I am here to try and move up a rank so I can continue to do even better work on this wiki. I have over 3,000 edits and have been here since the 2015(kinda in 2010 but I really wasnt active then). I have a few plans like my Community outreach program, but I feel they would be more suitable if I had more of a Patroller/Admin rank, than someone with little power at all. Hopefully ya'll will accept me to join the Patroller ranks here. Some might say it was a long time coming for me to ask this also, but I will await judgement and will respect and choice given in this regard.-CIA391 (talk) 16:01, 14 March 2017 (EDT)

Request: BaconShelf (Passed)[edit]

Date: 28/08/2018

Reason for request: I've been doing a lot of editing recently in the realm of bringing articles up to date with Halo Wars 2 content - notably stuctures, Flood units and general Phoenix log info being added into articles. I've also been uploading renders, screenshots and concept art from Artstation and other sources to improve the quality of articles' image galleries. My request for Patroller status is to help in this regard, and to be able to assist in other image cleanup projects around the wiki (IE renaming images to fit proper image naming conventions, adding categories etc) and other small tedious tasks. I only have roughly 400 edits at the time of writing, but I have been a bureaucrat over on the Titanfall Wiki for over a year, in which time I've performed a near total overhaul of the wiki's uncategorised and unused images alongside general quality improvements to the wiki as a whole. I joined Halopedia in 2015, though didn't really become particularly active on the wiki for more than sporadic edits until late 2017/ early 2018. I've also been fairly active on the Discord server in regards to posting links for art uploads and other misc discussions. If you guys want someone to help out with the catching up and other more tedious tasks round the wiki, I'm the guy for the job! BaconShelf (talk) 12:17, 28 August 2018 (EDT)
