AVBOT: Detecting and fixing vandalism in Wikipedia
Abstract Wikipedia is a project which aims to buildWikipedia is a project which aims to build a free encyclopaedia to spread the sum of all knowledge to every single human being. Today it can be said to be on the road to achieving that goal, having reached the 15 million articles milestone in 270 languages. Furthermore, if we include its sister projects (Wiktionary, Wikibooks, Wikisource,...), it has received more than 1 billion edits in 10 years and now has more than 10 billion page views every month. Compiling an encyclopaedia in a collaborative way has been possible thanks to MediaWiki software. It allows everybody to modify the content available on the site easily. But a problem emerges regarding this model: not all edits are made in good faith. AVBOT is a bot for protecting the Spanish Wikipedia against some undesired modifications known as vandalism. Although AVBOT was developed for Wikipedia, it can be used on any MediaWiki website. It is developed in Python and is free software. In the 2 years it has been in operation it has reverted more than 200,000 vandalism edits, while several clones have been executed, adding thousands of reverts to this count.adding thousands of reverts to this count.
