From Portuguese Wikipedia[edit]

Status:    Done

Please add these rules from ptwiki. Helder 11:36, 29 August 2015 (UTC)

Please, can anyone assist with this case? Thank you!OTAVIO1981 (talk) 21:02, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
@Billinghurst, Mardetanha, Glaisher, Kylu, Bennylin: ^. Helder 17:34, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
Pretty sure that we have numbers of those, can you please limit it to those that are Portuguese only and give it to us in a copy and paste form?  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:46, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Done at w:pt:Special:PermaLink/43435608. Helder 20:35, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done diff I've removed some entries from there and also made some more restrictive since this is global. Let me know if anything there's anything else. --Glaisher (talk) 08:33, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
@Thanks Glaisher! Did you intend to remove ".br", ".pt", "", ".wikipédia", ".wikimédia"? Helder 09:16, 21 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorry, I didn't mean to remove those. It should now catch .br .pt as well. is already caught by it so it doesn't have to be specifically added. .wiki[mp]édia won't have any effect right now (due to SULF+gblrename stuff) but I've updated that commented out entry as well. --Glaisher (talk) 09:29, 21 September 2015 (UTC)

Attacks in Czech Wikipedia[edit]

Status:    Not done

User:OJJ is repeatedly attacked by usernames of new accounts. I propose adding:

.*\bOJJ\b.* <newaccountonly|casesensitive>

Thanks Matěj Suchánek (talk) 08:30, 5 September 2015 (UTC)

That is a pretty tight and restrictive change xwiki, is it truly necessary? Can you give examples?  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:42, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
They occurred only on September 4 when I expected them to repeat regularly. Matěj Suchánek (talk) 09:11, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
X mark.svg Not done then. For mass attacks like these, you can use *temporary* abusefilter to block account creation. --Glaisher (talk) 11:14, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Javad Ramezani (2)[edit]

Status:    Done

A follow up to Talk:Title_blacklist/Archives/2015#Javad Ramezani. The user is back spamming globally, so the blacklist need to be updates to cover Javād Ramezani as well. -- Tegel (Talk) 11:49, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

Javad Ramezani (3)[edit]

The page Javad.Ramezani was created today, so a small change of the settings would be in place. -- Tegel (Talk) 17:56, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

And the contribution of the day is "Javad..Ramezani" -- Tegel (Talk) 16:54, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
And an "Actor iran" on the Finnish Wikipedia. --Stryn (talk) 16:57, 26 October 2015 (UTC)


Yes check.svg Resolved.

Why are these words still are not blocked? — putnik 09:11, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

.*AD+M1+N.* and .*5Y5[0Ø]P.* catches those as well. --Glaisher (talk) 11:57, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

Cannot create my own userpage on zh-wiki[edit]

I tried to create [1], but got this, which I believe refers to this blacklist:

本頁已被禁止創建和編輯,只有管理員可以取消此创建限制。因為標題“User:(don't talk secrets)”和本地或全域黑名單 (\S)+\([^IV]+\)$ #避免消歧義空格錯誤配合。這通常是為了防止破壞性的編輯。


help? (don't talk secrets) (talk) 08:56, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Its Local balcklist zh:MediaWiki:Titleblacklist. Please try contacting local admins--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 09:05, 5 November 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I thought it was global bcs their error text explicitly linked to here. (don't talk secrets) (talk) 09:34, 5 November 2015 (UTC)


How many more will continue holding the name of a popular artist Alexander Tatarnikov? It's chaos, even persecution, this author did not do anything bad to anyone. It was not spam. Works of this artist is very strong and show good. There is a personal dislike for this man? We ask unlock this name............

The name given to that person at birth wrong? It does not contain anything wrong. Please help remove this block in the creation of articles.

I'd really like to see this issue resolved in a positive way. Here are pictures of this author:, - also good, these pictures are not anything bad. This is because they now can not write articles? Due to the fact that it shows the Mother of God? Move to blacklist discussion is possible, but will it help?
