[EPIC] Spambot Detection System to Support Stewards
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Stewards are the group of user with the highest levels of rights and permissions across projects in Wikimedia, including global blocks, global locks and global bans that are indispensable for combatting cross-wiki abuse. Despite their critical role in governance and content moderation, stewards' workflows barely rely on advanced tools. In order to increase the efficiency of stewards in spambot detection capacities, this research project will investigate the potential of computational approaches.
