Meta-Wiki has a small active community. When a normal user requires the assistance of an administrator or bureaucrat for some particular task, it is not always easy to find one. This page helps users find one when they need one; asking specific admins directly via their talk pages is one way to elicit a fast response.

special:AbuseFilter/6[edit]

I feel that the filter is not working correctly. I have more than 50 edits and I'm getting ratelimited by it often. I had to add this but the editcount flag seems that the filter is not working well either. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by MarcoAurelio (talk) 21:49, 25 July 2017‎ (UTC)

I batch tested the filter without that last addition out against your name/edits, and got zero hits, so maybe it is a systemic fault rather than the filter itself. The < 50 is a clear step that could not be ignored.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:53, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: [1] - how can we make sure that this is an extension error before reporting to Phabricator to avoid later being shouted "NO BUG!!!11"? :) —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:08, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Interesting. Test https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/examine/log/312159 with filter 6 loaded. You'll get that the filter matched the change but if you look at the list below of parsed variables, neither user groups nor user editcount are there. Maybe that's the reason? —MarcoAurelio (talk) 14:10, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
Fixed, | overlooked during cleanup. --Steinsplitter (talk) 14:52, 26 July 2017 (UTC)

To me it is more interesting that running the check against your last set of edits failed to trip the test mode, yet it trips if you run the specific filter on the edit through examine mode. Something to bear in mind.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:24, 26 July 2017 (UTC)
