Ah, so it looks like my basic idea (centralized
verification of edits) isn't
entirely new. I'm guessing that the patrolling feature was turned off because
there are just too many edits going through Recent Changes for that interface
to be useful. Am I correct?
Not sure. I tried marking edits as patrolled, but there was something
clunky about the interface and people didn't seem terribly interested.
I realise of course I should have written up a proper bug report at
the time ...
The FlaggedRevisions extension has a lot more interest pushing it
forward and a lot of close attention to usability on a busy wiki, i.e.
de:wp. So that should be more useful and usable.
