Hey, do you mean in preferences or beta features part?
(Just to be sure)

In Recent Changes preferences (and just the header).

Ladsgroup moved this task from Backlog to Prioritized on the MediaWiki-extensions-ORES board.

I guess this really only matters once ORES is no longer a beta feature (since you have to activate ORES to see the header), but it's never too early to plan ahead :)

I honestly doubt people will understand what "Objective Revision Evaluation Service" is either.

Revision scoring?

@kaldari What about "ORES review tool"?

I like the term "Revision scoring" as it implies what's being done. I don't think that expanding ORES' acronym is all that valuable.
