Wikipedia:New Pages Patrol

New pages patrol is a process by which newly created articles are checked for obvious problems. The patrol is entirely voluntary and carries no obligation. At its heart, it's really just a way to see that every page gets checked in a timely manner and is given a boost on its way to becoming a quality article, and that Wikipedia is not deluged with poor-quality articles and totally inappropriate pages.

Wikipedia puts powerful editing tools at the hands of all readers and users. New Page Patrol is our first line of defense against unwanted pages or for improvement of poorly written or constructed pages and it must be done accurately.
