When a new contributor comments on your repository, sentiment analysis is run on their recent public comments. If 5 or more comments stand out as toxic, then an issue is opened for this user in probot-background-check/{your-github-username}-discussions private repository so that you and other maintainers can review these toxic comments and discuss whether or not you all want to allow this hostile user to participate in the community.

Setup the app

  • Install the app from here in your repos.
  • You'll receive an invitation to join a repo in probot-background-check org. Accept it.
