Gather checkuser feedback about sockpuppet detection model
Open, MediumPublic



The sockpuppet detection model being built by the WMF Research team is close to ready for being evaluated and validated by checkusers. There are a few reasons we want to do this:

  • We want to evaluate the performance of the model and verify if the model is using the correct vectors to make judgements
  • We want to verify if the model's input and output formats are as expected by checkusers
  • We want to get checkuser buy-in on the model seeing as they will be the first users to get their hands on the model

Ultimately, we want to get to a place where the model is ready to be used to build a tool that can be handed to checkusers and eventually more people on the wiki.

  • Draft initial communication to checkusers mailing list seeking a smaller group of checkusers who are interested in helping validate the model
  • ...
  • @Johan: Community Relations specialist working with AHT and the checkusers
  • @Isaac: Researcher working on the sockpuppet model
  • @Niharika: PM for AHT team which will productize this model eventually
