*Com[bp][1Il]ex.* <newaccountonly>

Yes check.svg Resolved.

User:Kylu added that line (*Com[bp][1Il]ex.* <newaccountonly>) in February 2009 with the edit summary: (+Complex/Comblex (temp)).

I'm a member of the English Account creator team and have a request which is blocked because it contains complex. I have two questions now:

  • what means "temp" in the edit summary? Can it be removed since this more than 2 years old?
  • why was this regex added? Any valid reasons? I didn't found any at meta and enwp.

Cross-wiki abuse. There's a good reason despite good users being affected as we had hundreds of attack accounts created with that expresion. I suggest not to delist as the vandal is still active. Regards, -- Dferg ☎ talk 16:17, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. Bad that I didn't find any real comment. Account was already created (as "AGF") so fixed. Mabdul 15:08, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
