Performance improvements to global abuse filters[edit]

Status:    Done

While setting up filters for the 2017 Community Wishlist Survey (see discussion), I noticed on Meta we're regularly hitting the condition limit. It looks like some global filters could be improved, which I believe require steward intervention:

old_size == 0 &
user_editcount < 10 &
article_namespace rlike "^(0|2)$"
contains_any(added_lines, "Goji", "Gochi")
old_size == 0 will cancel out more edits than the edit count check, and we can use regex (fast in this case) on the namespace to consume one condition instead of two.
old_size == 0 &
user_age == 0 &
article_namespace rlike "^(0|2)$" &
contains_any(lcase(added_lines+article_text), ...)
  • Special:AbuseFilter/82, 91 and 94 could probably be combined.
  • Special:AbuseFilter/80 – Put the old_size == 0 as the first condition, as it is more likely to evaluate to false.
  • Special:AbuseFilter/78 – (private, so I'm not being descriptive) The new_pst variable is very slow, and from my experience may not always work. You could probably just use added_lines. Also put the article_namespace condition first, as it is more likely to evaluate to false.
  • Special:AbuseFilter/72 and 76 – Use article_namespace rlike "^(0|2)$"
  • Special:AbuseFilter/69 – Put the article_namespace condition first.
  • Special:AbuseFilter/46 – You can probably get rid of the action = "edit" condition because the other variables used (added_lines and added_links) only apply to edits. This filter would normally trip on deleting the page, but we are only checking for non-autoconfirmed users. The added_links conditions could also be combined into one condition, like added_links rlike "one|two|three".
  • Special:AbuseFilter/19 and 132 – Shouldn't need action == "edit".
  • Special:AbuseFilter/138 – Use user_age == 0 instead of !"user" in user_groups (marginally faster), and put the irlike as the second condition and not the last. In this case, doing the regex first might slow things down a little, but it will definitely reduce the condition count. We have a new logstash dashboard that shows which filters are very slow, and we can check if this one shows up (but I don't think it will).
  • Special:AbuseFilter/141 – Similar to above, use user_age == 0 as the first condition, then I'd probably put the edit_delta condition as the second, followed by article_text, then the rest.
  • Special:AbuseFilter/144 – I think you could use action contains "upload" instead of the two conditions checking the action.

Just a few friendly suggestions! — MusikAnimal talk 23:06, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

I changed some of them. I may do the rest later. Ruslik (talk) 18:55, 6 November 2017 (UTC)

Thank you, but not all articles have been deleted. I guess it is because they have more than one revision. Korg (talk) 21:09, 12 November 2017 (UTC)

Page deletion in[edit]

Status:    Done

Please delete the page "Naruto ninjutsus list" in, because the community decided to eliminate it by unanimity. --Conde Edmond Dantès (talk) 20:08, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
