RedWarn and improving Wiki counter vandalism into the 2020's
From Ewan McAndrew on August 16th, 2021
We are Ed6767 and Chlod, two aspiring young and technically minded Wikimedians who, along with the rest of the RedWarn team, have developed one of the newest and most popular counter vandalism tools on the English Wikipedia. Counter vandalism and recent changes patrollers play an important role on all Wikimedia projects - in fact, it's how many senior Wikimedians got their start. We will be discussing the history of patrolling tools, the process and importance of counter vandalism and how we plan to improve the space for every Wikimedian, and beyond to every MediaWiki user.
