Check if edits involving specific domains are reverted
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

If edits on different articles involving a specific domain is regularly being reverted, then add them to a list over domains needing further investigation. If the list reaches a certain length, lets say 5 entries, then stop doing replacement of the urls for this domain until the investigation has been completed.

You will probably need a secondary list of domains that should have their urls rewritten anyhow. This will typically include domains that are investigated and where the conclusion is they should go to the archive.

Checking for reverted edits is an extremely costly task to implement. A different solution is in the works.

It sounds so simple when you lay it out, but the bot's code structure doesn't have room for that kind of check. At least, not that I know of.
