Automoderator should not revert self-reverts
Closed, DuplicatePublic


One behaviour we noticed that contributes to Revert Risk's false positive rate is that it doesn't know what edits came before the edit it's considering. As such, it often falsely scores self-reverts highly. An editor reverting their own edit might look like a large removal of information, but it's actually an innocuous edit, because the editor is just undoing their own work. As such, we would like to skip these edits entirely.

A 'self-revert' should be defined as an edit which is a revert, where the edit being reverted was made by the same editor as the edit under consideration.

Acceptance criteria

  • If an edit is made by an editor which reverts the same editor, it should not be reverted by Automoderator
