Thanks for helping out on Recent Changes Patrol!

Patrolling is wikiHow's first line of Quality Control, and it's awesome you want to lend a hand! There's a lot to learn when you start patrolling, but a few guides can help:

How to Patrol Recent Changes
Interactive RCP Tutorial
How to Do a Manual Revert
Expert Tips & Advice on Patrolling

Some Patrolling Basics to Get You Started:

  • Article edits: If they're accurate and helpful additions, hit Mark as Patrolled. If they're vandalism or involve unnecessary inclusions of brand names or external links, hit Rollback. If they are helpful but are not in wikiHow style or format, or the edit contains mistakes, do a Quick Edit to fix the change.
  • Articles needing lots of help: If you come across an article with many mistakes, you can use Quick Edit to fix them up, or add templates for further editing. If you're not sure what needs fixing, just go ahead and skip it so someone else can add any necessary templates.
  • Talk pages: Generally, messages between talk pages that aren't vandalism or abuse are fine, too. You can mark them as patrolled, most of the time.
  • Discussion pages: Generally, most comments here are fine to patrol, but if you see obvious or repeat spamming, abusive or offensive content, you can remove it.
  • User pages: Most edits here are okay. Only rollback or question the edit if it's clearly vandalism by another editor or contains abusive content.

If you have questions, just let me know, or you can ask the Help Team. Thanks for helping out!

Hey, could you please add photos and a video to the wikihow article "How to Prevent Suspension From wikihow" and understand that it shouldn't be merged because of the reason that I stated in the discussion page.

Hello MattIntellectual. I just stumbled upon your edit to Make a Haiku Poem as I was doing recent changes patrol and I undid it because I think it violates one of wikiHow's policies. I'd be happy to explain in further detail, if you'd like to know. I'm also willing to consider that I misunderstood your edit, and that maybe it isn't against policy after all. Write back if you think that's the case. Really? You turned this article into something unnesicary

Hi there, MattIntellectual!

Again, I'm really glad that you're taking such an interest in getting involved in wikiHow.
About the clubs (AKA Projects and Teams), you can find a list of every wikiHow club/project/team here. I would suggest joining only the ones that you have a great interest in and that you feel you can commit to and do work towards. For example, since you seem to enjoy patrolling, you could join the Recent Changes Patrollers. If you want to join a team, their page will give you specific instructions on how to join. Those clubs are really fun, I've joined quite a few and even created my own. You also meet lots of wikiHowians with the same interests as yourself through the projects/teams/clubs.

As for your question about nominating articles for deletion, you can, in fact, nominate articles for deletion. Anyone can nominate an article, but only Admins (basically wikiHow staff) can actually delete it. Read the Deletion Policy to find out more about nominating articles for deletion. Once you've nominated an article for deletion, users of wikiHow will vote via the article's Discussion Page about whether the article should be kept or deleted. If a concensus for deletion is achieved, an Admin will delete the article. If not, an Admin will remove the NFD (Nominated for Deletion) template.

I hope that my answer hasn't been too confusing for you! I wanted to be thorough with it, but it's turned into a novel... :-).
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me!

Just out of curiosity, why are you removing harmless talkpage messages from my talkpage? It only adds another edit to be patrolled....

Ok I'm ok with all that your saying Matt. Lol but it's getting an awfull amount of views and some of the info could be useful. Just keep that in mind when you are deleting it. Oh nd I made both dealing with frenimies things so I feel that I have some say into which one goes and which one stays. I did create both articles therefore I OWN those articles and I have the call. Jesus there's so much freaking drama on wikihow! Lol who knew! I go through this much drama in school lol. Whatever it's all bs anyways…

Hey Matt! I just came across your profile and wondered why I hadn't bumped into you yet, then I saw that you've been here only two weeks. Hard to believe because you've made a lot of contributions and seem like a natural! I'm impressed :) I enjoyed reading your essay about how you become more interested in wikiHow. It was especially cool to see that the community dashboard had a lot to do with that. It was developed specifically for that purpose - to show new people hey, there's a whole bunch of stuff you can do to help out!

Anyway, welcome and hello!

I was wondering, would it be alright if I featured you in our "Meet a Community Member" widget, which shows in the right siderail of most pages on wikiHow? It would show your avatar, along with a short description written by me. And if so, could you upload an avatar of yourself? It doesn't have to be a close-up (for example mine doesn't show my face) but I find that since the widget is about meeting people, visitors really enjoy seeing a photograph of the person in the widget :)


I like to feature a mix of new community members who are doing great things, mixed with veterans who've been around for a while and are still doing great things! I'll be rotating people sporadically, so I can't say how long you'll be in the widget, but probably for at least a week.

Let me know if this is okay with you!
