What to do

RC Patrolling primarily consists of a four step process:

Removing or improving the edit:Needy edits should be tagged according to their need (ie There was an error working with the wiki: Code[1]), or There was an error working with the wiki: Code[4] changed immediately. Bad edits should likewise be tagged or deleted. Because no PESWikins like their edits to be deleted, it is important to leave concise but clear justifications on the talk page or in the edit summary. When adding tags, please consider placing them on the article's talk page rather than in the article itself.

Warn the editor: In the cases of deliberate vandalism or an evident lack of knowledge on PESWiki procedure, offending editors should be warned on their talk pages. While this is an optional step, it should be a regular part of a patroller's duties, as it minimizes conflict, educates new editors and alerts admins of repeat offenders.
