OAuth CID: 85Snuggle (English Wikipedia) [1.0.0]

Snuggle is an intelligent user interface that is designed to help Wikipedians identify desirable new Wikipedia editors. The interface lists all accounts registered in the last 30 days along with contributions and talk page messages.

Snuggle has two primary functions:

  • Supporting direct interaction with newcomers through the "action" menu.
  • Categorizing newcomers by their intentions to help other Snuggle users focus their attention.

Note that categorizing users also provides input to the intelligent algorithm used to sort newcomers by their "desirability".
