The May 2024 New Pages Patrol backlog drive was a one-month-long effort to reduce the backlog of the new pages patrol articles feed. The coordinators for this drive were Hey man im josh and DreamRimmer. The drive began on May 1, 2024, at 00:00 UTC, and concluded on June 1, 2024, at 00:00 UTC. The ultimate goal of this backlog drive was to reduce the number of articles awaiting patrol, whilst maintaining quality reviews. Awards will be given out to the participants based on their contributions during the drive. If you have any questions, please leave a message on this drive's talk page.

Points[edit]

  1. Points: Points are calculated based on the 31-day total according to the leaderboard. It is updated by BaranBOT, which counts patrols, draftifications, and deletion nominations, but can only detect deletion nominations when performed with the Page Curation tool. We will accept CSD logs made by Twinkle, which will be added to the leaderboard at the end of the drive, based on the principle of good faith. Participants will have 4 days (until June 5, 2024, at 00:00 UTC) to submit these logs on the drive's talk page after the drive has ended.
  2. Re-reviewing: As usual, rather than speed, quality and depth of patrolling and the use of correct CSD criteria are essential to good reviewing. To ensure quality reviews, credit is also given for re-reviews. To find articles to re-review, participants are encouraged to visit the leaderboard section and check any reviewer's log. Please make sure that an article was not a redirect at the time it was reviewed and that it's not already been re-reviewed by another participant. Participants are allowed to submit re-reviews for 4 days following the completion of the drive. You are encouraged to focus on re-reviewing articles from other drive participants over non-participants. All re-reviews are to be submitted by June 5, 2024, at 00:00 UTC.
