Meaning of "dupe"
Regarding this edit summary, "dupe" has been used for some time as an abbreviation for "duplicate". Per this English Stack Exchange answer, it seems to have originated in (or close to) photography. This usage is acknowledged by quite a few online dictionaries, from the looks of it. 「ディノ奴千？！」? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 06:05, 10 June 2018 (UTC)
Creating empty pages
Good day. Creating blank pages just to immediately fill them with content, like you did here, is not constructive, as explained in this post. Please refrain from doing so in the future. Thank you. --AttemptToCallNil (report bug, view backtrace) 11:21, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
- Okay. I know that. I will put a infobox next time. HaydenKenMutthew Talk 11:23, 15 June 2018 (UTC)
Ignoring the question of who that is, this content has no place on this wiki, regardless of whether it's in an article or on your userpage. Please remove it. 「ディノ奴千？！」? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 07:58, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Hi! Dinoguy1000 has put you in the patroller user group, which allows you to mark other edits as patrolled and rollback edits. It's strongly recommended to take a look at MCW:Patrollers for an explanation of the role, as well as a quick guide. Here's a brief overview of both of the permissions the user right provides:
- Marking edits as patrolled. This basically tells other patrollers and administrators that the edit has been reviewed and any problems both content-wise and formatting-wise, have been fixed - e.g., open HTML tags or incorrect information. Since you're a new patroller, if you're unsure about something, it's better to leave it to a more experienced patroller or administrator. Additionally, you can take a look at Special:log/patrol, to get an idea of when other patrollers mark edits as patrolled.
- Rolling back edits. Clicking "rollback" will instantly rollback all of the last contributions to the page by the user without leaving an edit summary, while clicking the pencil button will allow the summary to be edited. The most important thing here, is if there's any chance that the user was trying to be helpful to the wiki or the information might be correct but you haven't tested it, make sure to leave an explanatory edit summary.
If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask! Additionally, if you don't want this user right, feel free to ask for it to be removed here, and I can ping Dinoguy.--Talk to me 13:20, 2 August 2018 (UTC)
