Face-smile.svg Hi! Please leave a message and I'll get back to you... Face-smile.svg

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you have a question or need help, whether you think I can help you as an administrator or as another contributor of content. I'll do my best and can probably point you in the right direction if it isn't something I can sort out myself. If you want to ask me about an image I've deleted, please remember to link me to the deleted image so I know what we're talking about.

I usually reply to messages here, unless the matter is urgent and I want to make sure you get the reply quickly.

Will

Can I ask[edit]

Given the block on this user can I ask if you could put their domain on the Commons blacklist. I did indicate that it would be blacklisted if they ignored the warning so they are consciously abusing Commons. I'd do it myself without hesitation if I still had rights here. I'm watching the domain globally from Meta however there have only been a couple of links on en wp otherwise so I'd be pushed to globally blacklist it at present. Thanks & regards --Herby talk thyme 12:07, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

@Herbythyme: Sure, is the following syntax OK?
 # Spam by User:Avaclemes
 \etaxdepreciationschedules\.com.au
It's been a little while since I added anything to one of the blacklists. Does it need a "\b" at the end? I can't see any obvious variants not being spam. WJBscribe (talk) 13:32, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
PS. It's good to see you around. WJBscribe (talk) 13:35, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

If it were me..

#Per https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Avaclemes&oldid=168308088
 \betaxdepreciationschedules\.com\.au

into MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist would be what I'd do (+ b & extra \ in mine) Good to see you too and appreciated. I tend to be around rather on and off these days. --Herby talk thyme 15:22, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

This is correct (i added it): \betaxdepreciationschedules\.com\.au\b. \b assert position at a word boundary and \ is to escape. --Steinsplitter (talk) 15:42, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
Thanks both. WJBscribe (talk) 16:21, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
