Thanks for the note. I have tweaked the filter so that non-new Wikimedians are not caught.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:15, 18 September 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

False positive for Special:AbuseFilter/96 on Breton wikipedia[edit]

An anonymous user was prevented from creating the page br:Iain Banks (see log entry) because of filter 96 (online shopping spam). Could you please take care of this particular case? Huñvreüs (talk) 12:20, 3 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

@Huñvreüs it looks like this was stopped because the user was trying to use external links to (, something that is almost never considered a good source. — xaosflux Talk 13:29, 3 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Indeed this was the reason. In this particular case it was acceptable IMO, but anyway, the article was created. Thanks for your help. Huñvreüs (talk) 08:23, 4 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
