WikiLoop Battlefield[edit]

Hello, I have serious concerns about WikiLoop Battlefield because it cannot deal with cases where a single user has made more than one consecutive vandalism edit. I believe it should be disabled until this is fixed, because at the moment it is doing more harm than good by only partially reverting vandalism in these cases. The` example I found this on was Federation of Australia on the English Wikipedia; see my message on Satdeep Gill's English Wikipedia talk page. Also, its edit summary on the English Wikipedia should really link to the English Wikipedia page on the software, not this Meta page. I hope this is a good place to provide feedback.

I've reported the former issue on GitHub. Graham87 (talk) 07:31, 4 August 2019 (UTC)
Hi @Grahamwp(@Graham87:) thanks for your report of issue. Per your request, I currently disable revert. Let's have follow up discussion on Github issue about how we can resolve this problem. You should see the application behavior already changed. Xinbenlv (talk) 21:06, 4 August 2019 (UTC)


The name may be unfitting for long-term use. Was "Antivandalism" or "Patrol" not fancy enough? ToBeFree (talk) 23:20, 30 December 2019 (UTC)

@ToBeFree: Hi thank you for reaching out, you are certainly not alone. We have been poked and pinged by Wikipedian friends and realized Battlefield is not a suitable name. We are currently asking for a brainstorm of a new name for this project, join the discussion here
