Unclear header for ORES options in Preferences
Closed, ResolvedPublic


99% of Wikipedia users have no idea what "ORES" means. Please use "Objective Revision Evaluation Service" or some other more descriptive header for the ORES preferences.

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

In Recent Changes preferences (and just the header).

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.

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.
