Set a flag for “good-faith edits by new users” in ReviewStream
Closed, InvalidPublic


Sheltering “Good-faith edits by new users” from review processes not designed for them is a high-priority goal of the ERI project. Although downstream tools can identify such edits by cross-referencing the relevant data themselves, doing that work for them and explicitly flagging this category will, we hope, make the special needs of good-faith new users more prominent and make it more likely that tool developers will feature and filter by this category.

  • As an imagined use case: an anti-vandalism tool might highlight such edits with a special signifier or offer a setting that would exclude them.
  • The new user definition should be as defined in T145159.
  • Given the imagined use cases, the threshold for good faith should ensure a relatively high probability. (Find definitions here T146280)
