Complete and up-to-date Instructions at mw:Extension:Title Blacklist
The following instruction section is copied from en:MediaWiki talk:Titleblacklist
The title blacklist is maintained as a system message at MediaWiki:Titleblacklist.
This page consists of regular expressions, each on a separate line, for example:
Foo <autoconfirmed|noedit|errmsg=blacklisted-testpage> [Bb]ar #No one should create article about it
Each entry may also contain optional attributes, enclosed in
<> and divided by
- autoconfirmed — only non-autoconfirmed users are unable to create/upload/move such pages
- noedit — users are also unable to edit this article
- casesensitive — don't ignore case when checking title for being blacklisted
- errmsg — the name of the message that should be displayed instead of standard
Also, you shouldn't add "^" at the beginning of the entry and "$" at the end. They will be added automatically.
This is possible a better regex to stop index.php spam?

"plays with blocks" should be account-blacklisted
All accounts ending with "plays with blocks" are vandalism-only accounts, and therefore this string should be blacklisted. 22.214.171.124 07:20, 7 January 2010 (UTC)
