Patrolled edits is a feature which allows certain users to mark new pages and items in Special:RecentChanges as "patrolled", meaning that at least a basic review was performed. A good edit might be marked as "patrolled", but a bad edit might also be marked as "patrolled", if it was reverted or its most obvious regressions were fixed. By default this is only available if you have the sysop permission; many wikis grant a
'patrol' permission to groups of users.
This feature is useful when reviewing recent changes for undesirable edits, link spam and vandalism. This allows people (with permission to do so) to coordinate their patrolling activity, such that edits get checked over once, with less wasted effort (different people checking the same edit).
This feature also allows setting trustworthy users' edits to be automatically patrolled, so that the people who review recent changes need not spend time doing unnecessary reviewing.
