Gadget/extensão de avaliação de artigosEdit

Criar uma interface fácil de usar para adicionar predefinições de avaliação de WikiProjetos em artigos. Provavelmente exigiria algum tipo de página de configuração em JSON para listar as predefinições disponíveis. Funcionaria de forma parecida à extensão Wikiamor (que adiciona medalhas às páginas de discussão). Kaldari (talk) 17:30, 19 May 2015 (UTC)


  1.   Oppose WMF specific and well within the capability of volunteer editors. There is no need for this to be an extension, the gadgets above should be sufficient.

Melhorar o robô de “detecção de copiar-colarEdit

Atualmente, temos um robô que analisa "todas" as novas edições à Wikipédia inglesa por motivos de copyright. Seu registro está aqui (em inglês). Este tem potencial para trabalhar em muitos outros idiomas.

O problema é que ele não é tão confiável como deveria ser. Além disto, a apresentação de preocupações poderia ser melhorada. Gostaria de ver o registro transformado em uma extensão e formatada semelhantemente ao feed de páginas novas da Wikipédia inglesa.

Atualmente, o registro é classificável por WikiProjeto. Seria ótimo criar módulos específicos para WikiProjetos para direcionarem a páginas individuais nos projetos. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 03:45, 4 November 2015 (UTC)

Ferramenta automatizada para reduzir interações tóxicas em páginas de discussãoEdit


Construir uma ferramenta de inteligência artificial para identificar ocorrências de abusos aparentes em páginas de discussão na Wikipédia inglesa em tempo real, desenvolvendo funções existentes nesta Wikipédia como etiquetas e filtros de edição.

Benefícios previstos
  1. Um filtro de edição poderia avisar usuários antes de postarem, dizendo que seus comentários talvez deveriam ser reformulados para serem considerados como apropriados:
    1. Abaixando drasticamente o número de mensagens abusivas postadas em páginas de discussão.
  2. Editores poderiam verificar mudanças recentes com etiquetas:
    1. Trazendo olhares mais que necessários às páginas de discussão onde um(a) editor(a) possa estar enfrentando assédio sexual ou outros tipos de abuso.
    2. Diminuindo a espera e aliviando vítimas da obrigação de pedir a administradores por ajuda.
  3. Prevenção de agravamento em páginas de discussão.
  4. Melhora na cultura das páginas de discussão.
  5. Retenção de editores melhorada.

Uma discussão anterior relacionada a esta ideia pode ser encontrada em https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#Proposed:_Tag_.2F_edit_filter_for_talk_page_abuse (em inglês).

Como User:Denny ressaltou na lista de discussão Wikimedia-l (em inglês) ontem, um projeto semelhante foi relatado na comunidade do jogo online League of Legends a fim de melhorar a qualidade de interações sociais, com um sucesso considerável: ocorrências de abuso verbal naquela comunidade diminuíram por mais de 40% segundo relatos.

Outra descoberta interessante deste projeto foi que “87 por cento do comportamento agressivo vinha de cidadãos neutros e positivos que apenas estavam tendo um dia ruim. [...] Tivemos que mudar o conceito de como as pessoas pensavam sobre uma sociedade online e mudar suas expectativas do que era aceitável.” Isto é algo que também parece se aplicar à Wikipédia.

Os designer de jogos e cientistas trabalhando neste projeto começaram a compilar um grande conjunto de dados de interações consideradas não produtivas (comportamento agressivo, assédio e abuso) pelos membros da comunidade e então aplicaram uma aprendizagem automatizada a este dados para poderem fornecer comentários rapidamente aos participantes sobre a qualidade de suas interações (Também estão procurando identificar comportamentos positivos e colaborativos).

Gostaria de ver a Fundação explorando se esta aproximação poderia ser adaptada para endereçar os problemas semelhantes na comunidade da Wikipédia. Revisar eliminações e vigiar postagens nas páginas de discussão na Wikipédia inglesa poderia fornecer um conjunto de dados inicial, por exemplo; assim como a comunidade do League of Legends, a Fundação poderia convidar laboratórios e institutos acadêmicos externos para ajudar a analisar tais dados.

Há consideráveis dificuldades envolvidas no desenvolvimento de um sistema sofisticado o bastante para evitar números inaceitáveis de atos positivos falsos, mas este desafio é familiar à programação do ClueBot, e uma das equipes do League of Legends parece ter solucionado: A classificação das palavras foi fácil, mas, e quanto às linguísticas mais avançadas, como algo sarcástico ou agressivamente pacífico? E quanto aos conceitos mais positivos, como frases que apoiaram a resolução do conflito? Para enfrentar os problemas mais desafiadores, quisemos colaborar com laboratórios internacionais. Oferecemos a chance e trabalharem naqueles conjuntos de dados e resolverem tais problemas conosco. Os cientistas se juntaram a nós para fazer diferença e os avanços prosseguiram. Começamos a entender melhor a colaboração entre desconhecidos, como a língua evolui com o tempo e a relação entre a idade e o comportamento; surpreendentemente, não havia ligação alguma entre idade e comportamento nas sociedades online.

Um projeto bem sucedido deste tipo poderia subsequentemente ser também oferecido a outros projetos da Wikimedia. Isto endereçaria um longo e muito discutido problema na Wikipédia inglesa, e colocar a Fundação na vanguarda da cultura da internet. Andreas JN466 20:03, 14 November 2015 (UTC)


  1. Comment: This is something I mentioned to an OS during Wikimania actually. Basically, imagine a system that automatically hides suspicious edits pending OS review. Think of it like FlaggedRevs but with a more strict set of rules. Certain OSable content is fairly trivial to spot. Emails and phone numbers, social security numbers etc. follow a certain pattern detectable with a simple regex for example. AI would learn such rules. We often see same content be reposted as well. I would propose a OSed content campaign where clustered content would be hand labelled by humans (perhaps oversight users to avoid privacy concerns). Humans would go through the unsupervised clusters and label them (this one looks like a phone number so it should be hidden, that one looks ok so it doesn't need to be hidden) and we can then use this to train AI (clustering or multi class classification). AI would develop a level of confidence of "bad content" such that if the post is above a certain threshold it would be hidden until reviewed by AI. -- とある白い猫 chi? 19:47, 30 November 2015 (UTC)

  10.   Oppose any project for English Wikipedia only. A Community Tech project must be a global one, but making a reasonable machine learning tool for detecting problematic talk page comments is a huge challenge even for one language (as our words may be offensive of not depending on the context), and would take an unreasonable number of resources for all wikis — NickK (talk) 10:03, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

  15.   Neutral Searching for strings that could be phone numbers, social security numbers, and other sensitive information sounds like a great project, but this seems too nebulous/open-ended, with too many areas that can go wrong beyond those numeric strings which seems like a much more doable project that enwp could do on its own, since it's less applicable elsewhere. — Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:13, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
  16.   Neutral I like the idea, but I'm not sure we have sufficient actual-human resources to positively analyze and act upon the talk-abuse occurrences such a bot would detect, nor do I have confidence in the Foundation staff's technical abilities to develop such a bot.

Migrar ligações inativas à Wayback MachineEdit

Ver também: mw:Archived Pages (em inglês).

A maioria das ligações externas têm uma média de vida útil de 7 anos antes de se tornarem inativos. Com o passar do tempo, os problemas com ligações inativas na Wikipédia aumentam. A Internet Archive fez parceria com a Wikipédia para garantir que todas as ligações externas tivessem cache na Wayback. No entanto, não houve nenhum processo formal na adição de ligações à Wayback na Wikipédia (com o recurso citar web |archiveurl=…, por exemplo). Houveram tentativas de automatizar vários robôs (ver pt:WP:Ligação inativa), porém o código é muito complexo e múltiplos esforços voluntários não obtiveram sucesso. Provavelmente, será necessária uma equipe de programadores trabalhando em tempo integral, algo além do alcance dos poucos voluntários trabalhando em seu tempo livre. É este tipo de trabalho que o MediaWiki poderia fazer parceria e fazer uma grande diferença na qualidade do conteúdo, impactando todos os artigos. -- Green Cardamom (talk) 19:27, 7 November 2015 (UTC)

Comment: I was pointed here as someone already involved in this project. I am indeed already working on a bot, approved on the English Wikipedia on a bot that does just that.

In the worst case, some domain is archived for years and the archive links are used, then the registration expires, the domain is scooped up by a squatter or some other company, they put up a robots.txt denying access, and boom, the existing archives for the former site under that domain are inaccessible. Or a site is bought out by some other company, and the new company redirects every URL from the old site to their existing homepage and throws up a robots.txt denying access to everything on the old site so as to prevent Google potentially penalizing it as a SEO trick, and boom, the existing archives for the old site are inaccessible. Or a site just reorganizes everything and puts up a robots.txt blocking access to the old URLs to get them out of Google searches, and boom, the archives for the old pages are inaccessible. Anomie (talk) 14:53, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
    The situations you describe happen rather rarely. More commonly seen are: 1) rare cases where robots.txt is changed for "censorship" purposes (this usually means the matter is controversial and there are probably secondary sources); 2) widespread cases of domain parkers which buy hundreds of thousands of domains and block everything in their robots.txt (these are usually smaller websites, but not always; it would be interesting to see how many are used as sources on Wikimedia wikis).

  34.   Support Wittylama (talk) 15:15, 1 December 2015 (UTC) While the Internet Archive is an excellent 'catch all' source, I'd also like to see this solution be able to address the fact that many national libraries already perform web-archiving of their national domain. For example, the Pandora service of the National Library of Australia has a far more professional and consistent archive of Australian content than IA does, but it is done on a 'permission' basis due to local law. It would be good if any tool build to solve this request could be made to search other notable web-archives too. Wittylama (talk) 15:15, 1 December 2015 (UTC)
    Like Internet Archive, Pandora is member of the IIPC (International Internet Preservation Consortium), so they're supposedly already working together. Perhaps Wikimedia Foundation should join the consortium? If I understand correctly, your point is that we should look for more sources: that should be rather easy as long as they are IIPC members and use compatible tooling. In the long term, if WMF joined the IIPC, then it could push for some sort of federated openwayback (or just send patches upstream?).
    For now however, the main goal is probably to somehow store the archived URLs MediaWiki-side so that some sort of parsing can happen to fix links without running bots on hundreds wikis. Otherwise, bot owners are in a better position to deal with the issue. Nemo 07:34, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

  39.   Support This is a serious issue which definitely needs to be worked on, and is, in the end, going to need a much more permanent and inventive fix. I don't know if a full-on editing team is required -- maybe just an improved bot, or a section on some kind of common page (like the Wikpedia Community Portal) listing pages tagged with a "improve dead links" template (which would need to be created, I believe). I also definitely agree with user Sadads above, that any work done should build off of editors' current efforts, rather than starting completely from scratch. -- 2ReinreB2 (talk) 17:11, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

  54.   Comment Often, there is a better ("live") replacement for a dead link than the Wayback Machine's archived version. An automated process could discourage people from actively looking for such a replacement. Using an archived version should always be seen as a last-resort option; I'm not convinced that a blindly acting bot is what is needed here. Gestumblindi (talk) 01:11, 2 December 2015 (UTC)

  119.   Neutral-- I am Pascal Martin, creator of Wikiwix, the French wikipedia link archiver since 2008. We host 80 million links from fr.wikipedia.org on our archive. We also archive the English ( not sure all ) Hungarian and Romanian link sources although we do not link to these. I think that a better solution than having all links archived by IA would be to allow users a choice of which archive version to use. This already works very well on dead links on fr.wikipedia.org, as for example in references 4 and 5 on this article: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Front_de_gauche_(France).And if Wikimedia Fondation is thinking of sponsoring someone for archives, Wikiwix would like to be considered for the job!
