Hi, my name is Sam and I’m a Product Manager on the Moderator Tools team at the Wikimedia Foundation. We’re exploring a potential new project for next year, to build a kind of anti-vandalism bot which could be used on any Wikimedia project, using a new machine-learning algorithm.

Since you run ChenzwBot, I wanted to reach out to ask you a few questions about your experience, so that we can learn more about the feasibility of this project.

  • What prompted you to create this bot?
  • How does the bot work? What models does it use to determine which edits to revert?
  • What does the community think about it? Were there any discussions or disagreements about deploying the bot?

If you have any other thoughts or suggestions about our idea I’d love to hear them! Hearing about your experiences will really help us in understanding whether this project is viable and what we should be thinking about.

Thanks, Samwalton9 (WMF) (talk) 12:23, 22 May 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
