  4. 4. Patrols Patrols are used in Wikipedia to watch over a class of pages and take any appropriate actions. Most patrol actions are performed by individual Wikipedians , but some are performed by bots . There is a great need for patrols in Wikipedia. Wikipedia is huge (2.6+ million articles) . To help maintain reasonable quality a number of Wikipedia community members have set up long-standing patrols. Patrols focus on various pages , noticeboards and feeds . Many of the well-known patrols have hundreds of users, and are directly responsible as a first line against vandalism , or other potential problems. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Patrols
  5. 5. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:ClueBot ClueBot , a famous patroller ” “ I am ClueBot. I am currently enabled. I currently have 769,303 contributions. “ I have attempted to revert 519 unique article/user combinations in the last 24 hours. I know of 994 different articles that have been vandalized in the last 48 hours. “ Teacher is the most vandalized page with a total of 11 vandalisms in the last 48 hours. Today's featured article is: NeXT .” -- Cobi ( t | c | b ) 09:53, 28 October 2008 (UTC) ClueBot reverts, warns, scans, and calls for help when needed. “
  6. 6. Wikipedia Bots <ul><li>Polite: play nicely with human editors. </li></ul><ul><li>Heuristics: scoring imitates human intellect. </li></ul><ul><li>Tedious work : scanning for open proxies, identifying copyright violations. </li></ul><ul><li>Free, open source : Anybody can view and use the code. </li></ul>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:ClueBot
  7. 7. Semi-automated Counter-vandalism tools Rollback, Twinkle, Huggle, VandalSniper, Lupin’s Anti-Vandal Tool – all open source. Automated scripts patrol for suspicious looking edits and bring them to the attention of a human operator. The human decides what needs to be done, and the script takes care of the details.
