Yes, it's not nice that vandals can remove the template and that adding triggers the AbuseFilter. -- Rillke(q?) 14:08, 29 May 2013 (UTC)

CommonsDelinker: Replace File:Avro 652A Anson C.19 141 IAC Baldl 29.07.67 edited-4.jpg with File:Avro 652 A Anson, XIX Series 1, 141, IAC Baldl, 29.07.67.jpg across all Wikimedia projects. Reason: Incorrect file name: The depicted aircraft is a civil version of XIX series 1, not the military version C19.

  1. It is not a fascist filter. It simply enforces what is written everywhere.
  2. You are not a file mover.
  3. This page is for replacements that are required after a file was moved only.
  4. Place other requests at User talk:CommonsDelinker/commands
  5. CommonsDelinker currently does not work.
  6. File:Avro 652 A Anson, XIX Series 1, 141, IAC Baldl, 29.07.67.jpg does not exist. If you want to rename the file to that name, use RenameLink or {{rename|suggested name|reason}} directly.
  7. Don't include File:! Just the title of the file.
  8. Assume good faith.

Hallo, ich sehe hier keine Option zum Umschalten der Sprache. Ich habe jetzt etwa 20 Mal vergeblich versucht mich zu registrieren. Leider waren jedes Mal die Bildzeichen falsch und ich hatte damit Probleme sie korrekt einzugeben. Ich hoffe ich kann mich auf andere Weise registrieren. Bitte kontaktieren Sie mich unter meinem deutschen Konto (H7). Bitte auf Deutsch, ich verstehe kein Englisch. Danke.

Translation via Google Translate:

I don't even know where else in Wikipedia this photo may appear, using the Navy as the source. I am hoping if I clear this up here that it will remove all instances of its use throughout.

  • Page name: Commons talk:WikiProject Food and Beverages (histlogsabuse log)
  • Edit kind: I simply replied to another WikiProject member's comment. I had not noticed that I was logged out of Commons (must have happened at midnight?), so the edit was done anonymously.
  • Comments: I didn't use any spammy phrases, no external links, or anything else that I can think of that would have triggered the Abuse filter. I'd be very curious to know (e-mail or talk page reply) what triggered the false positive. Was it perhaps that my message was so long, and that is unusual for an anon? Thank you for allowing me to post it anyway. It would have been even nicer if the site had warned me that I was posting anonymously, though. Then I would have realized I needed to login before posting.

I would like to develop a filter detecting license template removal[edit]

If possible I would like to detect edits where before the edit file was transcluding {{License template tag}} and after the edit it was not. Example edits I would like to flag in the future:

Oh, that is too bad, I do not know much about AF, but I was assuming they have it since many rules seem to use rules like that. I looked at mw:Extension:AbuseFilter/Rules_format#All_variables and we could use new_html and old_html if we place some invisible html tag in {{License template tag}}. but it seems like old_html is disabled? I can not think of other way to do it. --Jarekt (talk) 12:55, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
