Wiki labels is a human computation system for use in "Wiki labels" WikiProjects. In order to perform difficult analyses (e.g. measuring the quality of newcomers over time[1]) and train intelligent wiki-tools like ORES (e.g. for detecting vandalism[2][3][4] and assessing the quality of articles[5][6][7]), we need labeled data (also known as "hand coding") and lots of it. The Wiki labels human computation system is designed to make collaboratively labeling wiki artifacts quick and easy. The system is implemented as a MediaWiki gadget/server pair in JavaScript/CSS and Python/Flask/Postgres.


OAuth authorization. A screenshot of Wiki labels OAuth confirmation is presented.

Editors with the gadget installed will find the wiki labels "home" interface load as a single page app within en:Wikipedia:Labels or their local variant (if their wiki has been configured). This single page app will allow an editor to view active campaigns, request worksets and label revisions and other "tasks".

The system uses mw:Extension:OAuth to integrate with an editor's MediaWiki account. Actions performed in the wiki labels system will be associated with a user's centralauth account.


Per installare il gadget, aggiungi il seguente snippet di JavaScript al tuo global.js. Vedi User:Wiki labeler/global.js (o la lista di utenti) per un esempio.

Behind the gadget, a server manages "campaigns", "tasks", "worksets" and "labels". This server provides a Restful interface for accessing this data. There are 4 basic modules: auth, users, campaigns and forms. The server also provides some user-facing services for designing new forms and access to a stand-alone gadget.

Costruttore moduli

A form builder interface is provided for the development and testing of forms to support new labeling tasks. Forms fields are configured using a YAML format that reflects OOjs UI. Forms can be submitted for review.

Gadget a sé stante

l fine di agevolare lo sviluppo e il test, garantiamo accesso al gadget anche tramite un app da pagina singola. Se per qualche ragione la versione on-wiki del gadget non funziona, gli utenti possono lavorare dall'interfaccia.
