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.

Offensive word[edit]

Per gUser search result, most of the usernames that contain "肏" are offensive username. Some of the accounts were not just created in zhwiki and also in jawiki etc. Also "" this word means fuck in Chinese. Thus I would like to request blacklisting account creation that contains "肏" this word. Thank you. --SCP-2000 05:19, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

Time2wait.svg On hold @SCP-2000: Please raise the issue as an RFC on zhwiki at the word(s) to be disallowed and the conditions to be applied, achieve a consensus and get administrators to get back to us. I am never comfortable making any such change without a clear consensus of the community most impacted and in direct consultation with the administrators of the language wiki(s).  — billinghurst sDrewth 08:35, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

"online betting" for autoconfirmed[edit]

I would like to propose that we blacklist article creating for pages with a title including "online betting" for any account that is not autoconfirmed. While it will not be perfect in stopping the spambots—as we know that some do get autoconfirmed—it will put a dent in some of their operations.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:28, 1 April 2021 (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).
