Video Tour Script for Page Curation. Created and narrated by Fabrice Florin on September 20, 2012.

Welcome to Page Curation on Wikipedia!

This new feature aims to give curators better tools for reviewing new pages on Wikipedia -- as well as help page creators improve their articles.

Currently, page patrol tools like this one make it difficult to review new pages quickly and accurately, and can be frustrating for both patrollers and creators.

Page Curation aims to offer a better experience, by providing two integrated tools: the New Pages Feed and the Curation Toolbar.

Here's how they work.

The New Pages Feed lets you quickly see what new pages have just been created on Wikipedia. Helpful information is provided for each new page, with a color-coded icon showing its status. For example, this page was just marked as reviewed, as shown by its green icon. And this page is still unreviewed, with several possible issues highlighted in red.

The New Pages Feed can be sorted by date, or filtered by a variety of criteria, so you can easily find articles to review by type -- or even by user name.

If you're an autoconfirmed editor on Wikipedia, click on the 'Review' button to examine any page on this list. This takes you to the article you selected, and shows a Curation bar at the right edge of the page. This toolbar includes a number of useful tools for reviewing new pages: you can get page info, contact page creators, mark a page as reviewed, add tags, mark the page for deletion — or jump to the next page on the list.

Let's go over these tools one at a time.

Page Info lets you view information about this page, including its status, its creator and last reviewer, as well as possible issues, such as lack of categories or references -- and the page history.

'WikiLove' lets you send a message to page editors, to show your appreciation for their work. You can quickly select which editors to thank, then pick the award of your choice and post it with your comment on their talk pages.

Once you've reviewed a page, you can 'mark it as reviewed’, to let others know that you have checked it and did not find any serious problems. If you like, you can also add a personal message on the creator's talk page to greet them or help them improve the article. A green icon then appears, so that other patrollers know they don't need to review this page.

If you find issues with this page, you can quickly add maintenance tags such as this one, so other editors know what to fix. You can select as many tags as needed, and add them to the page all at once.

If you think a page violates Wikipedia's policies, you can 'mark it for deletion' with this special tool. This will tag that page, so administrators can easily find it and delete it.

Finally, you can use the 'Next tool to jump to the next page in your list, until you find another article to review.

So that's Page Curation in a nutshell. For more information, click on the 'Learn more' links.

This first set of curation tools was designed in collaboration with the Wikipedia community. We aimed to create an experience that's easy to use by curators, while providing better feedback for creators, so they can improve Wikipedia together.

We hope you'll find Page Curation useful. Enjoy ...
