We need a sketch of steps and tools used to detect sockpuppets on Wikimedia projects. Christel volunteered to help with this in our last meeting. Request captured in some details at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research_talk:Sockpuppet_detection_in_Wikimedia_projects#Sketch_of_sockpuppet_detection_steps_and_tools
|Resolved||• DarTar||T171251 [Objective 3.1.2] Models for sockpuppet and toxic discussion detection|
|Resolved||Isaac||T171635 Prototype new models to facilitate sockpuppet detection|
|Declined||leila||T175103 Create a sketch of how sockpuppets are detected now|
@srijan Can you remind me what the status of the sketch is? I'm pretty sure we can resolve this since the survey is done and the information is collected. Are there private docs (because of the nature of this specific point), that we can link to, even if access to them is not possible? (I can turn this task to NDA access mode after you add the link).
@srijan if you don't mind emailing it to me first, that'd be great. If it's super safe to share it, we should eventually put it on meta at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Research:Sockpuppet_detection_in_Wikimedia_projects
Update: Srijan and I talked. There was a misunderstanding about what this task is about. We still need this to be done. :) If I understand correctly, T176379 was done to be able to do this task and get a better understanding of checkuser needs.
@CSteigenberger do you have time for the two of us to work together to summarize the survey results and also create a sketch? Both information, even in exaggerate, should be kept private, and only shared back with checkusers for their information.
