Vandalism on new article[edit]

Here's the text of an exchange from the Wikipedia talk:New pages patrol/Reviewers if you wish to comment. Smallchief (talk) 19:05, 28 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

"Earlier today I created a new article List of New Mexico counties by socioeconomic factors. Looking at it on the New Pages feed I see it is tagged "Vandalism." What is that about? Whatever it is, I don't like the implication that this article is a product of vandalism.Smallchief (talk) 17:22, 28 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

That's odd. I'm not sure what the software is interpreting as vandalism in that article. However, please be aware that that is an automated rating, not something a human did. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 18:22, 28 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I'm wondering if the thing is detecting references to race and ethnicity and basing the "Potential issues: Vandalism" tag on that? Samwalton9 (WMF) has been doing some work on the page curation tool, maybe he knows more about how that gets generated. ~ ONUnicorn(Talk|Contribs)problem solving 18:26, 28 April 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for the replies. I'm glad to know it's a bot rather than a human judgement. Maybe I'll communicate with Walton on this. Smallchief (talk) 18:56, 28 April 2023 (UTC)"Reply[reply]
