To enable reviewers to accommodate the special needs of new editors, we will define a Newcomer flag for ERI that will be included a) in a filter on the RecentChanges page and b) in the ReviewStream page.
- After researching current definitions and making sure we didn't stepping on something important. And
- Considering the appropriate name for the flag. And
- considering whether other "experience levels" might aid the edit- reviewing process.
We resolved on the following definitions and descriptions:
User experience level (for registered users)
Very new editors: fewer than 10 edits and 4 days of activity.
More days of activity and edits than “Newcomers” but fewer than “More experienced.”
More than 30 days of activity and 500 edits.
