Dear Elitre. I'm writing you this as I saw you updating the discussion page on the Egyptian Wikipedia.

I really need to know how to implement the last good edit to the Egyptian Wikipedia, because it is not as monitored in the past and nearly half of its articles have been vandalized and still left as they are.

At least tell me where to post that question and implement that. Thanks. --Mahmudmasri (talk) 16:44, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

If I understand your request correctly, you'd want some kind of "Flagged Revisions" enabled. However, one year ago the decision was taken not to enable that extension on new wikis anymore. The code is old and unmaintained, and it seems to be damaging communities more than it benefits them. I would recommend instead gathering a small but motivated group of users and look into the possibilities that ORES offers - basically, have artificial intelligence assist you in dealing with vandalism! You can leave a message in the talk page there, and someone will be able to offer more help.

Thanks for replying. The wiki is 10 years old, though. It's not new.

New means it didn't have it before.
