[Wikimedia-l] Patrolling photographs of living people

2016-03-31 Thread
Link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:BLP_overwrites

A flag waive for this handy cross-project report highlighting when
'newbies' have overwritten a photograph of a living person or someone
recently deceased. Technical problems caused the report to be offline
for several months, it is back though running slightly less
frequently. The live report gives a convenient way of spotting
potential image vandalism such as "revenge porn" attacks, which are
not currently highlighted using standard anti-vandalism or article
patrol tools on Wikipedia or Commons. Future improvements under
discussion for general watchlists may give us more local options.

The report is targeted at Commons hosted images used by the English
Wikipedia, but if non-English projects have experienced this type of
vandalism and would like a similar tool, please feel free to approach
me on Commons and I'll take a look at the possibility.

Thanks,
Fae

I dunno. I found it both informative for the broader community and
on-topic for this list. That it's used by enwiki admins was pretty
obviously not his main point.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:BLP_overwrites

It was chance that the English Wikipedia was the first noticeable
target of a revenge porn attack. The serious concern about potential
public impact started me looking at how to build a report to help
address the problem of image overwrites not being visible to
biography article patrollers. I would be happy to hear of non-English
Wikipedia cases that would provide an incentive to extend the report
to other projects based on experience. The SQL underpinning the report
identifies images of living people by searching relevant categories on
the English Wikipedia for images, but several language databases could
be added in (I would need local language help in choosing similar
categories), with a constraint that it would be nice to keep the
report updates within the current 5 minute cycle.

This is a report for Commons hosted images which are used on *all*
other projects. The majority of images currently listed are used in
many languages, so if they are being overwritten with defamatory
material, the internet footprint can be extremely large. For a real
example, the current report highlights
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:JohnTerry.JPG which is used
on 28 different Wikimedia projects.

Cheers,
Fae

I think we can agree to disagree - I don't want to clutter other
people's inboxes even more.

Still, I'll hold you to this PoV next time I'll feel the need to
constantly remember other people about my initiatives.

Best regards,

[Wikimedia-l] Patrolling photographs of living people

2015-03-12 Thread
http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Commons:BLP_overwrites

A quick reminder about this report which helps vandalism patrollers
for the English Wikipedia spot when images used in Wikipedia
biographies are being overwritten by newbie accounts. I recommend
more admins add the report to their watch-list. It is not too much of
a pest, as in a day it tends to change between 4 to 10 times with
normally only 1 or 2 new images being added.

The report has been running continuously on Labs for 5 months, changes
being added to the on-wiki report within 5 minutes of upload. In that
time there has not been another revenge porn type attack. Commons
remains open for contributors to overwrite images and vandalism can
happen. Based on this report a number of less desirable image
overwrites have been promptly spotted and reverted, mostly with the
only action being an explanation to the uploader of the the Commons
overwriting policy as they were acting in good-faith.[1]

I consider the report useful and very stable, the only recent change
being to filter out svg format images as this was adding a lot of
flags and symbols used in BLPs that have not been an issue to date.
The most active Commons patrollers I have noticed taking action on
reported images being Deniss and Mattbuck; so hats off to them for
lots of useful admin work. :-)

If there are other Wikipedias that may benefit from a similar report,
please drop me a note on Commons or email me.

P.S. If haphazard copyright violations being uploaded from Flickr have
worried you, then you may enjoy taking a look at my Flickrstreams of
concern report which has a more than 50% hit rate for identifying
problem sources that may need to be black-listed.[2]

 Based on discussion with 99of9 at
 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User_talk:F%C3%A6/BLP_overwrites#Boundary_conditions
 the report has been changed to include editors with up to 1000 edits
 on Commons and 2000 edits on Wikipedia. The images list has jumped to
 20 from 6, still a small and manageable list for new image patrollers.
 A previous minor change was to how often the report runs - checks are
 made every 5 minutes now, previously it was every 15.

 If you would like to see other improvements, please raise suggestions
 on the above talk page and I would be happy to discuss what would be
 sensible to include or adapt.

 Due to recent vandalism a new report on Commons for page patrollers
 has been started at
 https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:F%C3%A6/BLP_overwrites.

 This page shows images actively used on English Wikipedia biography
 articles, where a new upload has overwritten the original by a
 newbie* account. The report should be automatically refreshed within
 15 minutes of a new image upload/overwrite of this type.

 Instances of deliberate image vandalism of this type are rare, but
 important to handle promptly. If you have suggestions for improvement
 of this report, I would be happy to do my best to accommodate them.

 Notes:
 * For convenience newbie accounts have been arbitrarily taken as
 accounts with fewer than 200 edits on the English Wikipedia or fewer
 than 100 edits on Wikimedia Commons.
 * The report is maintained by Faebot and should be considered in a
 draft state as it may be moved to a more 'official' location or be
 taken on by more skilled bot operators.
