Operator: Gribeco

Automatic or Manually Assisted: automatic

Programming Language(s): perl

Function Summary: anti-vandalism bot (reverts edits)

Edit period(s) (e.g. Continuous, daily, one time run): continuous

Edit rate requested: 5 edits per minute (peak, average on frwiki is 500/day)

Already has a bot flag (Y/N): N, but was approved as a bot on frwiki (vote); runs without the flag so its reverts can be seen

Function Details: Salebot follows recent changes. When a change is made by an IP or a new user, it reads the diff, and based on a regex list and past history (previous reverts, page name, etc.) it computes a vandalism score. It reverts the change if it's detected as vandalism. The bot also sends alerts on #vandalism-pt-wp.


Note that right now, anyone can edit Usuário:Salebot/Config; this is not a big problem until the bot actually starts reverting changes on its own. (It runs in read-only mode right now because of the captchas, I use the account to do manual undos so the bot can meet the editcount threshold.) --Gribeco (discussão) 02h47min de 22 de Setembro de 2008 (UTC)

Also, I am not requesting the bot flag itself (bot reverts should be visible), but the authorization to run an automated bot that can potentially cause damage. --Gribeco (discussão) 02h53min de 22 de Setembro de 2008 (UTC)

Please Gribeco, change channel to #avu-wp-pt, you have already status of operator and voice for your bot. Kim richard correio 20h06min de 23 de Setembro de 2008 (UTC)
Done! --Gribeco (discussão) 20h14min de 23 de Setembro de 2008 (UTC)

You may start running the bot at I'd like to advise you to add some kind of emergency button (in Portuguese) somewhere in the bot userspace (GOE can be used as a reference). About message localization, you can try Wikipedia:Café dos tradutores; about the Portuguese expressions, you can try Wikipedia:Coordenação robótica (we've got some bad word expressions already available for page titles). --Leonardo Stabile msg 16h42min de 24 de Setembro de 2008 (UTC)
