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)

New users editing subpages of User:OgreBot/Uploads by new users[edit]

New users editing User:OgreBot/Uploads by new users, usually to remove their own entries, seems to be an excellent indicator of users that need a little extra attention. I came across two such entries just on one page. Could we create a rule to raise a silent alarm (i.e. log without warning) for this? LX (talk, contribs) 19:41, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

@LX: We are already hitting the condition limit for some actions (including edits), which means that some edits go unchecked for some filters and therefore I'd like to avoid everything that isn't a matter that is frequently happening. Perhaps OgreBot could check the pages itself once a day? If you were administrator, you could see all the filters (some are of arguable value, I guess), and start discussing about them… -- Rillke(q?) 19:44, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

  • Edit kind: Category should now read NYC LGBT Pride Parade 2015. Told this was unhelpful as it deleted an entire category, which was my intent.
  • Comments: The proper name is LGBT pride march, but as most people think of it as a parade, it isn't helpful to change that. But after years of referring to it as gay pride parade, we need to make all future references LGBT, in keeping with the parent category. I have no idea why it comes up under N and not 2, as do the others. This is the first time I'm attempting to create a category, and while your instructions say that category creation should rarely be required, in this case it's required annually.
