Title Blacklist[edit]

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

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

Instruction Summary[edit]

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[edit]

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

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

Steward election pages[edit]

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

"plays with blocks" should be account-blacklisted[edit]

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)
