TypeVandalism detection on Wikipedia

STiki is a tool available to trusted users that is used to detect and revert vandalism, spam, and other types of unconstructive edits made at Wikipedia. STiki chooses edits to show to end users; if a displayed edit is judged to be vandalism, spam, etc., STiki streamlines the reversion and warning process. STiki facilitates collaboration in reverting vandalism; a centrally stored lists of edits to be inspected are served to STiki users to reduce redundant effort. STiki is not a Wikipedia bot: it is an intelligent routing tool that directs human users to potential vandalism for definitive classification.

To date, STiki has been used to revert 1,215,480 edits that its users have identified as vandalism, spam, or otherwise unconstructive (see the leaderboard and editor milestones).
