Inappropriate related articles on mobile apps
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

In the apps for mobile devices, you get advice for relates articles. In the Dutch article about "misogynie" (misogyny) you're advised to read the articles about "Kalam (Islam)", "Islam" and "Allah". The Dutch OTRS team was contacted by an Islamic female who thought this to be anti-Islamic. As a member of the Gender Gap project group I also find them very anti-Islamofoob and anti-female.

  • How are these advised articles compiled?

Technically, Elasticsearch finds up to 25 "most important" terms, based on term freq in the document compared to term frequency of all articles combined, in a document. It then performs a search for these terms.

For this document the chosen words were:

allah
behoed
bestat
god
hat
hetzij
hoofdstuk
islam
koran
korintier
man
mann
paulus
sommig
vak
ver
vorm
vrouw
wester

This is roughly equivilant to the query: https://nl.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=allah+OR+behoed+OR+bestat+OR+god+OR+hat+OR+hetzij+OR+hoofdstuk+OR+islam+OR+koran+OR+korintier+OR+man+OR+mann+OR+paulus+OR+sommig+OR+vak+OR+ver+OR+vorm+OR+vrouw+OR+wester

It's not exactly the same because the morelike search is performed against a single field, the text, while providing the same list of terms to the full text search uses 7 different fields to build up it's score.

Thanks for explaining!
Now: how can I change the chosen words/how are the words chosen? (And by document you mean "article"?)

In web you can override these with {{#related:Preferred title}} {{#related:Preferred title 2 }} {{#related:Preferred title 3}}

@Ciell as mentioned by @Sjoerddebruin you can set a fixed list of recommendations on a specific article by using a special wikitext syntax (please see https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:RelatedArticles).
(It's not possible to tune/choose the set of words used by Elasticsearch).
