New Pages New pages are sometimes vandalism, mistakes, copyright violations, nonsense, or otherwise not suitable for Wikibooks. For vandalism, nonsense and test edits, mark pages with {{delete|reason}}. For copyright violations, use {{copyvio|source}}. For mistakes, use {{query}}. For content that belongs on another wiki, use {{transwiki|Wiki}}. Users with experience patrolling may request patroller rights.
Uploads     Look through the recent uploads for copyright violations and media without license information. Add {{copyvio|source}} to copyvios; warn the uploader with {{subst:nothanks|page|~~~~}}. For media without license info, add {{subst:nld}}, and use the template code provided to warn them.
Vandalism  Look for vandalism in RC; fix it and warn the user. Large or tiny additions or deletions, replacing the page, and strange or offensive edit summaries are giveaways. Anon users are often the worst vandals. If there is repeated vandalism by one user, or lots of vandalism from many users, tell an admin on-wiki or in #wikibooks (say !admin@enbooks to get attention). Experienced vandal fighters may request rollback rights.
New Users  New Users often make mistakes - if you find someone having trouble, give them a hand. If they're doing good work, welcome them with {{subst:bigwelcome|~~~~}}. Sometimes vandalism is found here as well.
Redirects   To fix double redirects, make the first in the chain point to the last in the chain. All redirects should point to the current location of the content. To fix broken redirects, check if the page at the location that doesn't exist was moved elsewhere; if so, redirect to that location. If the target page is gone, or if you can create an orphan while fixing double redirects, then tag the orphan redirect with {{delete|orphan redirect}}.
