All talks are recorded and archived on YouTube, so the link below should
still work. Let me know if there's a problem with the archiving and I'll
see what I can do. I'm also working on getting all slides linked to from
the Showcase page on me.org, whenever possible!

It was a great series of talks this week. Hope you enjoy it! -J

>>>> address such transgressions by temporarily blocking the perpetrator. Such
>>>> actions, however, come with the cost of potentially alienating community
>>>> members. Given this tradeoff, it is essential to understand to what extent,

>>>> framework for studying the future behavior of blocked users on Wikipedia.
>>>> After their block expires, they can take several distinct paths: they can

>>>> straight-out abandon the community. We reveal that these trajectories are
>>>> tied to factors rooted both in the characteristics of the blocked
>>>> individual and in whether they perceived the block to be fair and
>>>> justified. Based on these insights, we formulate a series of prediction
>>>> tasks aiming to determine which of these paths a user is likely to take
>>>> after being blocked for their first offense, and demonstrate the
>>>> feasibility of these new tasks. Overall, this work builds towards a more
>>>> nuanced approach to moderation by highlighting the tradeoffs that are in
>>>> play.
>>>> Automatic Detection of Online Abuse in Wikipedia
>>>> By Lane Rasberry, University of Virginia
>>>> Researchers analyzed all English Wikipedia blocks prior to 2018 using
>>>> machine learning. With insights gained, the researchers examined all
>>>> English Wikipedia users who are not blocked against the identified
>>>> characteristics of blocked users. The results were a ranked set of
>>>> predictions of users who are not blocked, but who have a history of conduct
>>>> similar to that of blocked users. This research and process models a system
>>>> for the use of computing to aid human moderators in identifying conduct on
>>>> English Wikipedia which merits a block.

>>>> First Insights from Partial Blocks in Wikimedia Wikis
>>>> By Morten Warncke-Wang, Wikimedia Foundation
>>>> The Anti-Harassment Tools team at the Wikimedia Foundation released the
>>>> partial block feature in early 2019. Where previously blocks on Wikimedia
>>>> wikis were sitewide (users were blocked from editing an entire wiki),
>>>> partial blocks makes it possible to block users from editing specific pages
>>>> and/or namespaces. The Italian Wikipedia was the first wiki to start using
>>>> this feature, and it has since been rolled out to other wikis as well. In
>>>> this presentation, we will look at how this feature has been used in the
>>>> first few months since release.
