Wikipedia:Reviewing pending changes
|This page documents an English Wikipedia behavioral guideline.|
|Reviewing pending changes in a nutshell: Reviewing pending changes consists of determining whether a new revision is broadly acceptable for public view, and if not, editing the article to obtain an acceptable revision.|
This page explains and provides the guidelines for the review process associated with the pending changes protection feature (enabled on 1 December 2012). Articles with pending changes applied can be reviewed by administrators or users called pending changes reviewers (
reviewer user group) who hold the pending changes reviewer permission. The process of reviewing is intended as a quick check to ensure edits don't contain vandalism, violations of the policy on living people, copyright violations, or other obviously inappropriate content.
