Here's what making me happy this week: The Hebrew Wikipedia community completed initial training of ORES, so ORES can be enabled in this language soon.
48 Wikipedians manually examined 5000 random diffs and marked them as damaging or not, and whether they appear to have been done in good faith or not. If you keep hearing about ORES and you have not idea what it actually is, then you'll be able to see it very soon in Recent Changes in the English Wikipedia. I tried it briefly, and I was amazed: it guessed pretty well which recent changes are likely to be vandalism. This technology is likely to revolutionize how Wikimedians patrol their wikis for bad edits, and make unintentionally bad edits less damaging. If you'd like to add ORES support for your wiki, look at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wiki_labels Kudos to users EpochFail, Ladsgroup, Mooeypoo and everybody else involved for making this possible. -- Amir Elisha Aharoni · אָמִיר אֱלִישָׁע אַהֲרוֹנִי http://aharoni.wordpress.com “We're living in pieces, I want to live in peace.” – T.
