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.

Woe Ray Raiyan[edit]

Please add an appropriate entry forbidding creation of accounts starting with "Woerayraiyan"; many such accounts have been indef-blocked on Indonesian Wikipedia. ArdiPras95 (talk) 02:20, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

@ArdiPras95: we can blacklist the word, we cannot manage the positioning in an account name. We would also like to see this request confirmed by a sysop or another holder of advanced rights at idWP. Please mention this request on your local admin noticeboard. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 09:02, 17 February 2017 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I've mentioned this request on "Warung Kopi" but no response whatsoever. ArdiPras95 (talk) 02:08, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: Hello. I believe ArdiPras95 wants to help on reporting "Woerayraiyan" prefix on username to be blocked from creation. The user ("Woerayraiyan") has been blocked indef for long-term abuse on idwiki. To evade blockage, he creates a new account starting from "Woerayraiyan" and adding two digit numbers at the end, such as Woerayraiyan01, Woerayraiyan02, and so forth. I am also not sure this is the right place to ask username filtering. Please advise. Thanks, ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 14:44, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
@Rachmat04: Yes, this is the right place to ask for the prevention of new username patterns. So the question is do you want a block on this pattern. Noting that it will just block the pattern for new accounts, nothing more. So it should be among methods that you utilise to respond, as on its own it will do little. Things that increase the urge to add a pattern is if it is offensive word, then it is a really good idea.  — billinghurst sDrewth 19:32, 21 February 2017 (UTC)
Yes, I agree with Billinghurst and Rachmat04. ArdiPras95 (talk) 03:18, 22 February 2017 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I guess blocking on username only is sufficient. Also, as far as I understand, this word isn't offensive or harassing, so it is unnecessary to place the word in a blacklist. ··· 🌸 Rachmat04 · 08:03, 22 February 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).
