Uploads by new users[edit]

I'd like to tag these so that I can query these files in the database. Proposed rule:

!("editsemiprotected" in user_rights) & (action == "upload")

I know about OgreBot, but this rule has little cost, produces immutable results, and can be queried more easily. --Dschwen (talk) 16:30, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

@Rillke, Steinsplitter, Krinkle, Jarekt, Natuur12: (recent rule contributors). --Dschwen (talk) 21:29, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Sounds reasonable to me; as long as the database won't crash and AF will not auto-deactivate itself or this rule due to a high trigger rate. Well, this is something we will know after testing. -- Rillke(q?) 22:13, 4 January 2015 (UTC)
Yep. Sounds reasonable. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:56, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
Alright, I'll add the filter later today. I don't know what the usual level of discussion is for new filters (those sections are totally drowned out by reports on existing filters). @Rillke: auto-deactivation of AF is a thing? Well, our upload rate is not that high. We'll see, I guess. How to we get it back up again? Shouldn't it just deactivate the high-hit-rate rule rather than the entire filter? --Dschwen (talk) 14:51, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
As far as I remember only a filter that got too many hits was auto-disabled (wgAbuseFilterEmergencyDisable). But it was very confusing when I saw a filter suddenly disabled. Another thing is the total condition limit of 1000 which appears to be hit sometimes. Current values: Of the last 8,743 actions, 17 (0.19%) have reached the condition limit of 1,000 ... This means these 17 actions go unchecked. -- Rillke(q?) 23:24, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

✓ Done. Added as filter 137. --Dschwen (talk) 18:01, 5 January 2015 (UTC)

And the filter is getting about two hits per minute. That should not be reason for concern. --Dschwen (talk) 21:04, 5 January 2015 (UTC)
@Dschwen: Warning: This filter was automatically disabled as a safety measure. It reached the limit of matching more than 5.00% of actions. -- Rillke(q?) 18:57, 22 January 2015 (UTC)

This is not an issue with the abuse filter. It is working as intended. You have to be logged in to edit your user page. LX (talk, contribs) 17:02, 7 October 2015 (UTC)
