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)

Blanking a page (removing all content from it) does not delete it. Only administrators can delete pages. I've turned it into a redirect. LX (talk, contribs) 11:44, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Whats now?[edit]

Report by Mgtny[edit]

Hi Mgtny. By "the russian version wiki", I assume you mean the Russian Wikipedia project (as opposed to some other Russian-language, wiki-based site – of which there are many) and by "the EN domen" I assume you mean the English Wikipedia project.
You are not on the English Wikipedia project right now. If you look at the address bar of your browser (a good habit to get into to avoid falling victim to phishing), you'll notice that you're on Wikimedia Commons, a repository of free, educational media files used by Wikipedia, other Wikimedia projects, and others. In line with Commons being a media repository, entries in the main namespace here are not articles (as they are on Wikipedia) but galleries intended for showcasing media files. Since the page you tried to create was not an actual gallery, it was prevented by the filter – just as intended. LX (talk, contribs) 20:28, 28 November 2015 (UTC)

The filter that says there were some strong words in the text[edit]

The filter that says there were some strong words in the text:

There no slang or strong words in the text!

IT'S A MACHINE/FILTER ERROR!

Please, fix it. —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 2601:240:C802:4437:218B:5754:DE42:2218 (talk) 03:25, 03 December 2015 (UTC)

    User pages are intended for bona fide contributors to this project to present themselves to other contributors. You are clearly not here to provide any constructive contributions to the project, which is why your edits were prevented. This is a feature, not a bug.
