Project ideaEdit

What is the problem you're trying to solve?Edit

Reduce wiki harassment and the need for excessive self-moderation as well as moderator-moderation.

What is your solution?Edit

Automatic filter checker like StackOverflow for contributes and moderators alike. The filter would find 'hot' spots of commonly grouped words which signal incorrect form, intent, usage policies.

Create a bank of filters to match common strings of words to that are voted on being against wiki's rules. This would be a scan the current contributor could make of their post before posting as well as for others who monitor different wiki pages. The filter is not the end all, humans need to have some interaction because some things are said within a different context which work and in others do not work... Use recaptcha's model possibly and have a passive task that everyone already has to do (enter in a computationally hard image to decipher, but semi-easy for a human to decipher, and an image from a textbook that could not be Optical Character Recognized or OCR) to do voting what combination of sentence structures or "key groupings" of words which re commonly found in posts which go against policy and rules. I have an example Perl regex script which works as a prototype.
