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)

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)

Report by 37.24.212.73[edit]

Thanks for your report. Preferably, everyone should be able to edit all pages, but some types of pages are of such high importance or are so much more likely to attract vandalism than useful edits from certain categories of users that different types of restrictions have to be imposed. In this case, a constructive edit was prevented, but that is a generally accepted side effect of this type of mechanism, and is not an indication that anything malfunctioned.
The reason for the difference between the main page on the one hand and pages in the User: namespace on the other is that different mechanisms are used to impose the restrictions. The main page is edit protected for everyone except administrators. This is a simple on/off flag that can be checked easily at any time. By contrast, editing of pages in the user namespace by users who are not logged in is prevented using an abuse filter rule.
Abuse filter rules are a much more flexible mechanism. They apply based on the specific contents of the edit. For example, the filter you triggered does have a small number of allowed exceptions, like still allowing users who are not logged in to flag problematic content in the user namespace. Therefore, the check is only performed when you make the edit, and it is not possible to know beforehand whether or not the edit you intended to make falls within one of the allowed exceptions.
I've made the edit you tried to make. Please consider registering an account, so you can make edits like this unhindered. LX (talk, contribs) 17:57, 22 March 2016 (UTC)

  • Edit kind: Hello Kroum,

my respect for the work you did, making a map of Europe, with the prostitution regulations by country.

Over the last years, a fierce debate on prostitution has been going on in France. The majority of lawmakers in France regards all prostitutes as victims of human trafficking and abuse. They also seem to think that all customers of prostitutes are rapists. Though there is a lot of misery going on in this business, there are also lonely single men that simply long for a girl friend and hard working ladies willing to take the role of substitute, in return for some cash. One could argue that adult people could make wise decisions on their own. Others fear that forbidding prostitution would increase the numbers of rape, or would force prostitutes to go underground. Anyway, yesterday, on the 6th of April 2016, The French parliament has voted in favour of a law that penalizes customers of prostitutes.

My request to you would be to change the colour of France to orange on your map, the same colour that Sweden and Norway have.

Thanks in advance! anonymous

PS: I refuse to invest much energy in Wikipedia, since I keep ending up in edit wars with people who think that following some rule is more important than simply reporting the truth. Several of my serious news updates on wiki articles were deleted within an hour after publishing, merely because I supplied a reference, containing a copy of a news flash that was on YouTube. According to wikipedia's rules, YouTube is always trash. Some nerds are too blind to see that while YouTube indeed features a lot of trash, a repost of a news item previously published by CNN or BBC (or other news media with a serious reputation) will not change into rubbish, just because it has been deleted, or put behind a pay-wall, leaving only that repost available on YouTube. Anyway, I ended up deleting my talk page and I do not read comments any-more, especially not those comments of people who assume that I would not be serious, just because I refuse to register at Wikipedia.

  • Comments: Can someone please contact Kroum and have that prostitution map of Europe adapted to the new law in France? I supplied the news articles from 2 reputable French news papers; I think I have done enough. 82.173.160.29 21:07, 7 April 2016 (UTC)

Odd zero log entry[edit]

While scanning for zero rated crap to be deleted, I found Special:AbuseFilter/examine/log/1249543 which shows an attempt by user:clempages to 'upload' 'File:PROFILE.jpg', however the file history only has one entry of 00:07, 1 June 2010.

There is no history or log entry against the file ; see https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:PROFILE.jpg&action=history and https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Log&page=File%3APROFILE.jpg

This upload event was captured by edit filter 149, and they hit it several times as seen at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseLog?wpSearchUser=clempages&wpSearchFilter=&wpSearchTitle=&title=Special%3AAbuseLog . The edit filter is in tagging only mode, so how could the upload have no other record of occurring? This feels like a bug, but I havent done AF work for a while now so maybe I am being dumb.

Hi Cb1138. If you really took the photo yourself, try Special:UploadWizard which offers more guidance. Then link the photos here and we'll try to understand why the error was triggered and what to do about it. Nemo 18:44, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
The filter in question prevents low-resolution uploads from newly registered users using the cross-wiki upload forms, since those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations. So uploading a full-resolution version of the photo instead of a 1024×768 low-resolution version would also avoid the problem. LX (talk, contribs) 22:40, 14 July 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! The upload wizard worked like a charm. Your help has been invaluable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cb1138 (talk • contribs) 13:23, 19 July 2016 (UTC)

The filter rule that affected this upload is one that prevents low-resolution uploads from newly registered users using the cross-wiki upload forms, since those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations. If this is your own work, you should be able to provide a full-resolution version rather than a 520×520 pixel miniature version. LX (talk, contribs) 20:33, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

I'd say the filter worked as intended. Looking at the log history, in your first edit, you tried to remove all authorship information from the file. All files must have authorship information. In your second edit, you tried to remove all categories categories from the file, including Category:Paintings of boys (even though this does appear to be a painting of a boy). All files should be categorised. In your third and fourth edits, you tried to remove the categories and all copyright information. All files must have copyright information. In your fifth edit, you tried to remove the information about the approximate date of creation, which is important for the copyright status of the work. If you think any of the information is incorrect, correct it, discuss it, or nominate the file for deletion if appropriate, but don't just randomly blank stuff out.

Looking at the entries in the filter log such as Special:AbuseLog/1442053, it looks like the filter prevented you from committing copyright infringement, as you tried to upload the photo claiming that you created it (describing it as your own work and naming yourself as author and copyright holder). Permission to use a photo for a specific purpose obviously doesn't give you the right to claim that you created it, or the right to release it under a license that allows others to use it for any purpose.

Ebrithil5: The filter you encountered prevents low-resolution uploads from newly registered users using the particular upload interface that you used. The reason for this is that those overwhelmingly turn out to be copyright violations.
Unfortunately, because of the number of copyright violations, the filter has had to be defined quite broadly, meaning it sometimes stops uploads that aren't copyright violations. And unfortunately, instead of getting rid of the flawed upload interface and directing users here to Commons (which the overwhelming majority of volunteers here would prefer), the Wikimedia Foundation thinks that leading users down this blind alley is a good idea.
