|This page in a nutshell: The "autochecked" user group will not be meaningful until pending changes level 2 begins to be used.|
Autochecked is a user group associated with the pending changes and flagged revisions protection features. With pending changes, it allows the edits of autochecked users to be automatically accepted, rather than need to be reviewed by an administrator or reviewer. All administrators and reviewers are granted this right by default. Under the current consensus that pending changes level 2 shall not be implemented, this right need only be granted to non-autoconfirmed users (to whom it would usually be better to grant the 'confirmed' right instead), as edits by (auto)confirmed users are automatically accepted under the pending changes level 1 configuration.
This userright also allows for users who are (auto)confirmed users to have their edits to PC2 protected pages to be accepted automatically, without need for the full "reviewer" rights package.
