Manual requests[edit]

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)

Spam pages on kiwiki[edit]

Status:    Done

On kiwiki, all contributions by Ngangawanjenga (talkcontribsaccounts) seem to be spam. See e.g.: [1], [2], [3]. Korg (talk) 10:06, 11 November 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done Deleted. Ruslik (talk) 13:02, 11 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 pt.wiki[edit]

Status:    Done

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

History deletion[edit]

Status:    Not done

Please someone delete my history page "https://fr.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Escadrille_SPA_153&action=history", some new internal military laws are in progress and some names have to be deleted. The only solution is to delete the history and I don't know how to do it. I'm the only administrator of this page.

Thank you! BOBDENARD57

French Wikipedia has its own administrators. Please, ask them. Ruslik (talk) 19:57, 14 November 2017 (UTC)

Bigdelete on en.wp: Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of voice actors (3rd nomination)[edit]

Status:    Done

en:Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/List of voice actors (3rd nomination) closed as delete and redirect, but apparently the delete part needs a steward because of the number of revisions in the history. Sandstein (talk) 12:30, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Delete - nonuse templates on kowikt[edit]

Status:    Done

These templates are unnecessary. There is no local admin on kowikt, so please delete them. And, delete these unnecessary local user pages(#1, #2, #3) too. --Nuevo Paso (talk) 04:58, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

There are a lot of pages to delete in the speedy delete category. I'll keep working down the list in a bit. – Ajraddatz (talk) 18:37, 18 October 2017 (UTC)
I deleted a bunch of Burmese words that had incorrect Unicode combining characters, since those are obviously not useful. PiRSquared17 (talk) 20:25, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
Partially Yes check.svg Done. I deleted only those that did not have transclusions. The remaining templates need to be replaced or removed from the pages where they are used first. Ruslik (talk) 18:42, 25 November 2017 (UTC)
