=== The problem===
The [[ https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Edit_Review_Improvements | Edit Review Improvements ]] project seeks to improve the edit-review process generally and, in particular, to provide a more supportive process for good-faith newcomers, a group that research shows have special needs. One focus of the project is [[ https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Edit_Review_Improvements/ReviewStream | ReviewStream ]], a machine-readable feed currently in development. To the basic data about recent changes found in RCStream, ReviewStream adds data valuable to reviewers of all types, from welcomers to vandalism fighters. Notably, edit-scoring data from [[ https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Revision_scoring_as_a_service | ORES ]] will help reviewers identify edits by good-faith new users and generally target their work more effectively.
By directly incorporating data that currently has to be looked up in separate processes, ReviewStream is designed to make life easier for creators of downstream edit-review tools and to make their tools faster while encouraging inclusion of features that will help new users.The feed will also benefit from extensive design and user-testing research into the best ways to make ORES' AI predictions clear and helpful to users.
Vandalism fighters and developers – especially those who design or program edit-review tools – will learn about the new feed. They will provide input that will improve the planned features and approach. Some will go on to create new edit-review tools or adapt existing ones to incorporate new feed capabilities.
===Current status of the discussion===
After wide-ranging discussion, we've written a basic ReviewStream spec (see below), and work has begun on shaping the feed's basic architecture. Meanwhile, much design, product research and user testing have gone into finding the right way to talk about ORES predictions and to present ORES scores in ways that conform with users' mental models and goals.
