Patrolled edits is a feature that allows specific users to mark items in recent changes as having been "patrolled" or "approved".

By default patrolling is only available to wiki guardians and administrators.

This feature is useful when reviewing recent changes for undesirable edits, like spam and vandalism. This allows people (with the necessary permissions) to coordinate their patrolling activity, such that edits get checked over once, with less wasted effort (different people checking the same edit).

Any members of user groups with the autopatrol user right will have their edits automatically marked as patrolled. See Special:UserGroupRights for a list of all groups with this right.
