I am not a fan of page curation. Honestly, I don't see anything wrong with
NewPages+Twinkle. It works fine for me.

I am happy to announce that the Wikimedia Foundation has just launched
Page Curation, a new suite of tools for reviewing articles on
Current page patrol tools like Special:NewPages and Twinkle can be
hard to use quickly and accurately, and have led to frustration for
some users. Page Curation aims to improve that page patrol experience
by making it faster and easier to review new pages, using two
integrated tools: the New Pages Feed and the Curation Toolbar.

If you are an experienced editor, please give Page Curation a try:
We are also holding IRC office hours on Wednesday, September 26 at 4pm
PT (23:00 UTC), during which we will be happy to answer any questions
you may have. Please report any issues on our talk page or to our
Community Liaison, Oliver Keyes <okeyes(a)wikimedia.org>rg>.
A number of patrollers have already started using Page Curation, and
we hope that more curators will adopt this new toolkit over time. A
'release version' was deployed on the English Wikipedia on September
20, 2012, and we plan to make it available to other projects in coming
This feature was created in close collaboration with editors. We would
like to take this opportunity to thank all the community members who
patiently guided our progress over the past few months. This includes
folks like Athleek123, DGG, Dori, Fluffernutter, Logan, The Helpful
One, Tom Morris, Utar and WereSpielChequers, to name but a few. We are
deeply grateful for your generous contributions to this project!
We designed Page Curation to offer a better experience, by making it
easier for curators to review new pages and by providing more feedback
to creators so they can improve Wikipedia together.
We hope that you will find this new tool useful. Enjoy!
