Commons talk:Counter Vandalism Unit
Bots to the rescue
Alright, so we're doing a fairly good job at patrolling right now. We're closing in on the back of the backlog, soon we'll be monitoring 'live' again with weekly catch-ups of a few edits. However we should be able get rid of most obvious vandalism with the use of bots (ClueBot), and be able to make some of our human actions redundant (such as signing unsigned talk page contributions, SineBot). I don't know to what extend these are programmed specifically for en.wikipedia, but we should look at getting them over here. –Krinkletalk 07:31, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
- Support for a signing-bot in Commons/Commons-talk-Namespace and Support for a bot that undoes edits that are not preventable with abuse-filter. -- RE rillke questions? 21:59, 25 January 2012 (UTC)
- Hmm, I do not like the idea of a spam filter-like semi-clever bot (like Cluebot) with wrong reverts - or does this very very seldom happen (like with a good spam filter)? If it has fixed rules for reverts (like those in abuse filters), fine. In dewp there also is a signing bot (de:user:CopperBot) which works fine and which I miss here. Rillke, I think you do not want to have a signing bot on COM:L, want you? ;-) Cheers --Saibo (Δ) 00:13, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
We made it to 0 again!
Wow! After quite a lot of patrolling and hard work done, we finally made the unpatrolled anonymous edits reduce to 0! Great work guys! It is 21 now, but subtracting off TimedTexts and translations that cannot be patrolled, the number is 0! Thanks to me, JurgenNL, Krinkle, Zhuyifei1999 and all the other patrollers for their hard work over the past 20 days! Jianhui67 talk★contribs 14:46, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
