Edit Review Improvements/New filters for edit review/yi
|רעדאקטירונג רעצענזיע פארבעסערונגען (ERI)|
New Filters for Edit Review is a suite of improvements designed to help edit reviewers be more efficient and effective on pages like Recent Changes, Watchlist and Related Changes.
An additional goal of the project is to help new contributors, who require a more supportive edit-review process according to research. The new tools do this by enabling reviewers to identify, for the first time, edits by new volunteers who are making errors but are, nonetheless, acting in good faith.
The New Filters for Edit Review introduce an easier yet more powerful filtering interface as well as a whole list of new filters and other tools, including live page updating, user-defined highlighting, the ability to save filter sets for re-use, and predictive filters powered by machine learning. This page summarizes the new tools and other benefits the project provides. The documentation pages can help you learn how to most effectively use these new capabilities. The New Filters were created by the Global Collaboration Team.

וואס איז ניי מיט די ‘נייע פֿילטערס’?
The following items describe key additions and enhancements of the New Filters for Edit Review project.
נייע פֿילטער גרופעס
Get predictions about edit quality
Available on certain Wikimedia wikis only
The “Contribution quality” filters offer predictions about edits. Are edits likely to to be of high quality or to have problems? With those filters, it is easier to search for good edits, to thank or help productive contributors. The filters can also detect bad-quality edits and help patrollers to improve them.
ORES, a machine learning service, makes the quality predictions based on statistics. ORES has been trained on a large set of edits, previously scored by human editors. These quality predictions filters are available only on wikis, where the ORES “damaging” test is enabled.
Get predictions about whether users are in good faith
Available on certain Wikimedia wikis only
The “User intent” filters offer predictions about whether edits were made in good faith or not. With those filters, it is easier to search for edits made in good-faith, by good-faith users. By enabling detection of bad-faith edits, filters assist reviewers looking for vandalism.
Like the Quality filters above, these predictions are made by the machine-learning service ORES, based on statistics. These intent predictions filters are available only on wikis, where the ORES “damaging” test is enabled.

Three new filters let you search by the experience level of editors who are making changes. These filters can be useful in a number of ways. For example, research shows that new editors are particularly vulnerable to rejection. The Newcomers filter enables reviewers to treat new users with the care they require.
These are the three new experience levels:
- Newcomers - Registered editors who have fewer than 10 edits or 4 days of activity.
- Learners - Registered editors whose experience falls between "Newcomers" and "Experienced users." (corresponds to autoconfirmed status on English Wikipedia).
- Experienced users - Registered editors with more than 500 edits and 30 days of activity. (corresponds to extended confirmed status on English Wikipedia).
The filters return the edits only of users who are currently logged in.
Search by new change types
In the past, reviewers had the ability to hide Category changes and Wikidata edits only.
The New Filters add three additional “Types of change” filter:
- Page edits lets you filter for changes to content and discussion pages.
- Page creations lets you use Recent Changes to patrol new pages.
- Logged actions lets you isolate—or exclude—things like account creations, page deletions and administrative actions generally (the events tracked on Special:Log).
Get (only) the latest
The “לעצטע ווערסיע” filters let you choose to see only the most recent edit to any given page. All prior changes on that page will be omitted.
Watch your Watchlist (from Recent Changes)
Use the “דפים ברשימת המעקב” filters group on Recent Changes to isolate or highlight changes made on pages you watch.
See the ‘Unseen’ (on Watchlist)
Beta feature, on Watchlist only
On Watchlist, use “שינויים שנצפו” and “שינויים שלא נצפו” filters (in the “פעילות ברשימת המעקב” group) to identify changes to pages you have or haven’t visited since the changes occurred.
Search by namespaces and particular edits
זוכן לויט נאמענטייל
Filter namespaces to narrow your search.
Search by tags
Filter tags used on your wiki to find particular edits.
Make results more meaningful with Highlighting
Highlighting lets reviewers apply color intelligently to emphasize edits that match desired criteria. Used correctly, highlighting adds meaning to Recent Changes search results and can help you find what you’re looking for more quickly.
Bookmarking: save and reuse your settings
The New Filters provide a lot of new functionality. To help you manage the wealth of options conveniently, we’ve provided the ability to save sets of filters, by name, for later use. Just click the bookmark icon to save your current settings. You’ll find all your saved settings in the “Saved filters” menu, where you can easily switch among them.
Manage preference right on the page
With bookmarks, you can declare a set of saved filters as your default. Those settings will load automatically every time you visit the page. This means you no longer need to visit the Preferences page to set your preferred behavior.
We plan to remove all redundant Recent Changes and Watchlist preferences, consolidating the remaining options on one tab.
A much-requested feature, “Live update” lets you use Recent Changes for near-real-time monitoring. In Live Update mode, the Recent Changes page automatically adds new changes to the top of the search results every three seconds.
Easier to use
To make the sophisticated functionality offered by the New Filters as friendly as possible, the filtering interface has been completely re-imagined. Functions are grouped logically and explained clearly. An "אַקטיווע פילטערס" area shows at a glance what your settings are. And a smart help system provides in-context guidance.
In a number of ways, the New Filters are organized using a different logic from the old ones. For example, by putting related filters into logical groups, the New Filters enable users to intelligently broaden or narrow their searches. Similarly, most previous Recent Changes filters offered only a simple option to hide a certain property (X). By augmenting those old filters so that they now let users show or hide both X and its opposite (notX), the current tools provide more control. For example, previously, one could show Wikidata edits or hide Wikidata edits, but one could not show only Wikidata edits.
June 12, 2018: ‘Hide filters’ function coming to Watchlist and Recent Changes
We plan to add the ability to hide/show the “Active Filters” area of the New Filters interface on both Watchlist and Recent Changes. See the designs below (or this ticket).
The design for this hides the Active Filters display area and the search bar, so that patrollers can see more search results sooner on the page. But even with these tools hidden, the page is still fully usable, with patrollers able to interact with tools like Live Updates, Saved filters and the ability to change the time period searched or number of results displayed. When you need to edit a filter setting or create a new filter, you just click the “show” button to restore the Active Filters area.
Making the New Filters tools collapsible is something users have asked for for some time. We should be able to release this change in June (2018). We’re moving on it now to particularly accommodate Watchlist users, for whom the New Filters will be graduating out of beta this month to become standard on all wikis (see the post below for more details on that).
June 2, 2018: New Filters on Watchlist to graduate out of beta soon
In September of 2017, subscribers to the New Filters beta got the New Filters on Watchlist.
The filters will be out of beta on Watchlist by late June or early July 2018. After launch, this suite of improved edit-search tools will be standard on all wikis. Individuals who prefer the existing Watchlist interface will be able to opt out by means of a new preference.
The New Filters introduce an easier yet more powerful filtering interface to Watchlist as well as a whole list of filters and other tools that make reviewing edits more efficient, including live page updating, user-defined highlighting, the ability to create special-purpose filter sets and save them for re-use and (on wikis with ORES enabled) predictive filters powered by machine learning. If you’re not familiar with the New Filters, please give them a try on Watchlist by activating the New Filters beta feature. In particular, it would be very helpful if you can test the new functionality with your local gadgets and configurations. The documentation pages provide guidance on how to use the many new tools you’ll discover.
- Known limitations
The New Filters may take about a half-second longer to load than the old interface, especially the first time you visit the Watchlist after some days (times will vary depending on how fast your computer is, the speed of your connection, the size of your Watchlist…). And the new interface, which provides a lot more functionality, may take up more vertical space than the old one—about one line of search results, depending on your window size, filter combinations, and other variables. As noted above, anyone who prefers to use the old interface will be able to opt out of the new version via a setting in Preferences.
- Let us know what you think
Over 70,000 people have activated the New Filters beta, which has been in testing on Watchlist for more than eight months. We feel confident that the features are stable and effective, but if you have thoughts about these tools or the beta graduation, please let us now with a post on this talk page. In particular, tell us if you know of a special incompatibility or other issue that makes the New Filters problematic on your wiki. We’ll examine the blocker and may delay release on your wiki until the issue can be addressed.
Sept. 2017: Standard on Recent Changes (and Related Changes)
Since May 2017, the New Filters have been available as a beta feature on Recent Changes (and Related Changes). In the months since then, Global Collaboration Team has received and acted on numerous feature suggestions and bug reports from community members and others, and the features have been through multiple rounds of user testing. They have, in general, received a very positive reception.
In September and October 2017, the principal New Filters features listed above graduate out of beta on Recent Changes only, becoming standard parts of MediaWiki. Users who want to can opt out of the improvements in their preferences.
Sept, 2017: in beta on Watchlist
In September of 2017, subscribers to the New Filters beta god the New Filters on Watchlist.
