Proposed additions[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg This section is for proposing that a page title be blacklisted; add new entries at the bottom of the section. Provide links demonstrating widespread creation by multiple users or IP's. Completed requests will be marked as done or denied and archived.

Neo-Nazi usernames[edit]

I propose to add a string .*1488.* <newaccountonly> (See en:Fourteen Words#14 and 88). The string .*HITLER.* <newaccountonly|antispoof> is already in the blacklist. Accounts, created in this month in Russian Wikipedia: 228David1488, SirPivo1488, Sasaker1488, Sasaker1488, Sasaker1488, Regina1488, Адольф Гитлер 1488 (Adolf Hitler 1488). — Alex NB IT (talk) 17:37, 19 March 2017 (UTC)

We would want to hear from the communities that the accounts with the "1488" as part of the name are problematic.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:23, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
I can see that we may wish to add "Гитлер" if we have hitler.  — billinghurst sDrewth 03:28, 21 March 2017 (UTC)
Adding 1488 is a good idea as it has become a common means of identifying oneself as a white supremacist on the internet. Kaldari (talk) 05:02, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
See [1] and en:Fourteen Words#14 and 88. There are over a dozen such blocked usernames on English Wikipedia, including en:User:1488Nate from just last month. @Billinghurst: What do you think? Kaldari (talk) 22:15, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
@Kaldari: It is outside of my knowledge base, and not where I have seen issues. We know that it won't change either editing practices or ideals, but if you think that it is insulting and problematic, that you see an evidence-base, well you already have the rights. If enWP admins want it blocked any (light) consensus at that place that is referred here would be implemented, and I had been hoping that would have been the process that would have occurred.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:29, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

影武者 (LTA:KAGE)[edit]

KAGE has created masses of accounts with personal attacking names on the administrator User:Lanwi1 so I propose to add .*蘭.*維.*一.* <newaccountonly>. --Gyakusyuu no Amanojaku (talk) 16:01, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

@Lanwi1: care to comment?  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:59, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
At least all these names are suppressed on zhwp. --Gyakusyuu no Amanojaku (talk) 11:59, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
Should be add .*[兰蘭蓝藍篮籃].*[维維唯].*一.* <newaccountonly> and .*L[aāáǎà]nw[iīíǐì].* <newaccountonly>. --Lanwi1(Talk) 13:57, 27 March 2017 (UTC)

^ (也能防其它破坏者)--Lanwi1(Talk) 15:22, 27 March 2017 (UTC)
I doubt that we would want to use wildcards that extensively, though we should be able to try something like .{,12} Do you have guidance on how many intervening characters are used?  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:52, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
Can add.*[兰蘭蓝藍篮籃][维維唯].* <newaccountonly>, .*[兰蘭蓝藍篮籃].[维維唯].* <newaccountonly> and .*[LI1][aāáǎà][mn][vw][iīíǐìl1].* <newaccountonly>?--Lanwi1(Talk) 16:56, 28 March 2017 (UTC)
In fact, I believe that there will never be another "蘭維一" (It's Lanwi1's unique nickname) and "Lanwi1" except vandals. And now the title "蘭維一" are just used for vandalizing. --Gyakusyuu no Amanojaku (talk) 04:14, 29 March 2017 (UTC)

I did some queries on Quarry and found there are about 100 "蘭維一"s (including 兰维一) and all of them are insuliting or offensive names except User:蘭維一 itself. "林士涵"s (already in the blacklist) are fewer than "蘭維一"s. "林士涵" is not active now but both Lanwi1 and KAGE are still active. --Amanojaku (talk) 18:07, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Proposed removals[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg This section is for proposing that a title be unlisted; please add new entries at the bottom of the section. Remember to provide the specific title or regex blacklisted, links to the articles they are used in or useful to, and arguments in favour of unlisting. Completed requests will be marked as done or denied and archived. The addition or removal of a title is not a vote, please do not bold the first words in statements.

Troubleshooting and problems[edit]

Symbol comment vote.svg This section is for comments related to problems with the blacklist (such as incorrect syntax or entries not being blocked), or problems saving a page because of a blacklisted title. This is not the section to request that an entry be unlisted (see Proposed removals above).
