Requests and proposals Requests for help from a sysop or bureaucrat (at Meta-Wiki only) Archives (current)→
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. It is only for assistance required at Meta-Wiki, help for other wikis needs to be requested at those wikis.

Link autorization[edit]

Please, I need authorization to insert the link: at Wikisul User Group. --Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 22:35, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio: ".site" seems overly broad (you added in 2018) - still needed in local blacklist? — xaosflux Talk 13:40, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
@Xaosflux: Sorry for the late reply. I've been away. All .site links I came across over here were spam or innapropriate. I don't mind delisting it and monitor its use, or maybe allow only autoconfirmed users to put links to that TLD via AbuseFilter. Ping to Billinghurst for another opinion. In any case and to allow Felipe da Fonseca to do his job, I've added the site mentioned above to our local whitelist. —MarcoAurelio (talk) 10:17, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
We can modify the regex to \.site/ if you want to allow its use elsewhere and keep out the TLD version. We haven't blocked it globally and the only other site that I see has it has a global TLD is idWS. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:24, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio: thanks for the update and notes, if this keeps coming up we can further adjust it or migrate to AF; quick look at the log shows nothing but spam in the .site TLD though. Best regards, — xaosflux Talk 12:02, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
  • @Felipe da Fonseca: you should be able to add this link now, sorry for the delay it had nothing to do with that site or you, just a general spam problem that it got caught up in. — xaosflux Talk 12:02, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
It worked, for me that's enough for now, thanks xaosflux and MarcoAurelio. --Felipe da Fonseca (talk) 14:41, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
