Grants talk:IdeaLab/Similarity measure for AbuseFilter

Grant proposal?Edit

Hey Jeblad, this more or less mirrors my comments over at Grants_talk:IdeaLab/BadWords_detector_for_AbuseFilter; I wanted to check in to see if you were thinking about seeking out funding (either through Rapid Grants or Project Grants for this kind of development work around the AbuseFilter. Looking at both proposals, you could fold them into a single grant proposal about general improvements to the AbuseFilter, with two arms: One for similarity, and the other for inappropriate language. One area I think both proposals could benefit from is getting some feedback from community members, particularly those who have some experience working with Filters. Have you considered inviting folks on en:Wikipedia talk:Edit filter and mw:Extension talk:AbuseFilter to check out these ideas and provide some feedback?

This is somewhat easy to implement, but its use is far from easy. It makes it possible to track 1RR, and block violations, but the question is whether we want to do that. Parts of the code is already written, but it lacks some specific features for AbuseFilter. I can do a tech writeup. — Jeblad 21:13, 22 July 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Grants to improve your projectEdit

Greetings! The Project Grants program is currently accepting proposals for funding. The deadline for draft submissions is tommorrow. If you have ideas for software, offline outreach, research, online community organizing, or other projects that enhance the work of Wikimedia volunteers, start your proposal today! Please encourage others who have great ideas to apply as well. Support is available if you want help turning your idea into a grant request.

The next open call for Project Grants will be in October 2016. You can also consider applying for a Rapid Grant, if your project does not require a large amount of funding, as applications can be submitted anytime. Feel free to ping me if you need help getting your proposal started. Thanks, I JethroBT (WMF) 22:49, 1 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Sorry, but I don't think I can do this for now. Perhaps I will reconsider later, but then it will probably be necessary to do some preliminary testing to see if this is feasible. At least there should be some statistics to infer necessary length on digests, and what the length imply for time span for blocking of a contribution. Strategies for rollback of multiple entries should also be considered. — Jeblad 14:10, 4 August 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
