Title Blacklist

Complete and up-to-date Instructions at mw:Extension:Title Blacklist

The following instruction section is copied from en:MediaWiki talk:Titleblacklist

Instruction Summary

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 blacklist is Meta-only and does not affect other wikis. ~Kylu (u|t) 23:29, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

index.php spam

This is possible a better regex to stop index.php spam?

(?:.*?\/)?index\.php(?:\/.*)?

Steward election pages

Stewards\/election[ _]200[5-9]\/statements\/.*

to prevent creation after this time.--Kwj2772 11:54, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

Has this actually been a problem?  — Mike.lifeguard | @en.wb 20:26, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

"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. 80.179.192.75 07:20, 7 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done. --Az1568 (talk) 07:37, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Add "Sapianus" to the blacklist

Since they have threatened to vandalise other Wikimedia projects again, maybe add Sapianus to the blacklist. They were globally locked as Sapianus. Nigos (talk) 12:51, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

I want the following regex to go here:

# Editnotice psuedospace
Template:Editnotices\/.* <noedit|errmsg=titleblacklist-custom-editnotice

X mark.svg Not done what are you trying to solve @IPad365:? We barely have any of these, was there a discussion on why this pseudo-protection would be warranted? — xaosflux Talk 20:04, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
&check; Done because I want it to be blacklisted editnotices because they’re used in system messages. IPad365 (talk) 02:32, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
