Cyrillic lookalikes of names of Syria

This section was archived on a request by:  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:05, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

Firstly, the Cyrillic letter w:Ѕ is now only used in the Macedonian language, which does not use the Cyrillic letter w:І. Secondly, the state of Syria is called Syrie in French, Syrien in Danish, German and Swedish, and Syrië in Dutch. Therefore, we need to add

.*Ѕугі[аеё].*

to the title blacklist. --84.61.131.17 13:29, 29 November 2016 (UTC)

Why would you want to block article creations about Syria? —MarcoAurelio 11:34, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Firstly a country can be called in many names in many languages, secondly as long it's not derogatory it's not a material for TB. I suggest to Meta Admins to reject this request.--AldNonymousBicara? 18:05, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

Problem with TitleBlacklist entry

This section was archived on a request by:  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:06, 12 January 2017 (UTC)

When I rename any user to Arabic Name , I get this message ( The new username matches the following TitleBlacklist entry: .*[\x{064A}-\x{064F}\x{0652}\x{0650}\x{0626}\x{0643}\x{0654}\x{0621}\x{0623}-\x{0625}].* ) , could you please remove this entry from the blacklist --Mohamed Ouda (talk) 11:02, 15 September 2016 (UTC)

@Mohamed Ouda: Looking at the addition, the comment is ## Don't have Persian's Diacritic and it looks to have been added at the request of Farsi WP. Can you add comment so that we can further evaluate your request and look to see if we can steer a middle course.  — billinghurst sDrewth 15:31, 16 September 2016 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: This entry makes a problem in renaming to Arabic usernames . --Mohamed Ouda (talk) 08:13, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
@Mohamed Ouda: Umm ... I think that was fairly evident from your raising the matter. I was hoping that you could be more informative on the matter. I know that my knowledge of Farsi equals my knowledge of Arabic. ZERO! It was added for a reason, and simply removing it may be an answer, but it may not be a helpful answer, or it may be the only answer. @Mardetanha: can you add comment here?  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:57, 17 September 2016 (UTC)
@Mardetanha: can you please comment or direct us to someone who can.  — billinghurst sDrewth 00:09, 23 November 2016 (UTC)
sure, I will ask to expert from fawiki to take a look Mardetanha talk 13:52, 24 November 2016 (UTC)
Per what I've understood from unicode character map, these are vowel sounds (obviously diacritics) such as "ِ". These characters looks small and can lead to impersonating others (we had such cases before). I think it should stay as it is and if you disagree, let's start an RFC Amir (talk) 14:49, 24 November 2016 (UTC)

Hello. Looks like this entry is now blocking a creating of any account at Sindhi Wikipedia – phab:T153420. It should be probably removed ASAP. --Vachovec1 (talk) 13:32, 16 December 2016 (UTC)

I fixed this issue with this edit: [1]. That said, this rule still seems to be too wide. For example, it matches any usernames with "ي", which is a separate letter and not a small diacritic (w:Yodh#Arabic_y.C4.81.CA.BC). @Ladsgroup, Billinghurst, and Mardetanha: Are you really sure this is intentional? Matma Rex (talk) 11:57, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
@Matma Rex: All I know is that it occurred when they moved account creation blocks to be solely here. We do need a solution rather than do nothing. I know not the resolution.  — billinghurst sDrewth 12:04, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
(ec)@Matma Rex:I see why it's there. 1- ي pretty much look like the other similar character ی. 2- The other thing that happened a while ago is that ي and ی looks completely the same when they are joined (e.g. the middle letter of "بیب" is ی and the middle letter of "بيب" is ي). Someone used this trick to desysop an admin before. Amir (talk) 12:05, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
Maybe we can remove it until we figure out a solution? —MarcoAurelio 12:21, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
@Ladsgroup: That should be solved by AntiSpoof, then. It looks like it is already handled: 'ى', 'ي' and 'ی' are already considered similar characters, and creation of usernames that differ only by these characters should already be impossible, even without the blacklist entry. Matma Rex (talk) 12:22, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
In that case, I'm okay with removing ي. Just global renames should be aware of this similarity and don't rename to similar ones. Global renamers usually ignore anti-spoof warnings. Amir (talk) 12:30, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Admittedly, I know next to nothing about Arabic, but these look like legitimate letters to me. I would recommend removing the rule. Matma Rex (talk) 13:44, 20 December 2016 (UTC)

Comment Comment this letters: (U+064A " ي ") - (U+0626 " ئ ") - (U+0643 " ك ") - (U+0621 " ء ") - (U+0623 " أ ") - (U+0624 " ؤ ") - (U+0625 " إ ") are main letters in most Arabic words (like: a - e - i in English) it shouldn't blacklisted, I understand how some users may use it for spoofing, but I think we should try to find out another way instead of (global title blacklist) --Ibrahim.ID 21:19, 20 December 2016 (UTC)
@MarcoAurelio and Billinghurst: Any possibility of removing at least the letters (those with LETTER in the Unicode name) from the blacklist? The characters are very common letters of the Arabic alphabet, as Ibrahim.ID points out, and it makes absolutely no sense to blacklist them. As an example, "ي" (U+064A) appears more than 600 times on the Arabic Wikipedia main page, which is comparable to the letter "o" on today's English Wikipedia main page. This, that and the other (talk) 05:11, 30 December 2016 (UTC)
Removed Removed I have nulled the whole line re Farsi diacritics. To me it has gone on far enough with the weight of comment favouring change, and I now believe that it is up to faWP @Ladsgroup and Mardetanha: to provide a better regex rather than the crude regex that is affecting arWP so significantly.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:48, 30 December 2016 (UTC)

Account creation blocked for Arabic users

another complain from a new user, he can't create his account in Arabic language because of:

this is not clear String, make a lot of errors in many projects and languages, you should remove it first then discuss, I guess how many users can't join wikipedia due to this stupid String, please fix that urgently --Ibrahim.ID 18:56, 18 December 2016 (UTC)

This section was archived on a request by:  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:15, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Diacritics

This section was archived on a request by:  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:15, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

For example, there is "German strong language" with "Arschloch" (English "asshole"). I see no reason that someone should be able to create accounts with "Arsch(l/i)" or such words in the name. There is already an entry ".*ASS+HO+L+E.* <newaccountonly|antispoof>" and an entry ".*[aA4]r[s$]ch[lI].* <newaccountonly>", but as we have seen just today (name had to be removed globally by a steward), trolls still can create accounts with words like "ArṣchIoch" (in this case, ṣ instead of s is not forbidden here, why not?). Please change all those entries with strong language, so that also those combinations are not possible anymore. Maybe, there's missing "antispoof" for all those entries, please change that not only for this word, but for all those entries. Oversighters and stewards who have to remove those names will thank you for that. Those names don't belong in version histories or logs. --Bjarlin (talk) 20:34, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

".*[aA4]r[s$]ch[lI].* <newaccountonly>" should be ".*ARSCH[LI].* <newaccountonly|antispoof>", with the L/I at the end because of normal German words like "Barsch", "Marsch", "Nachbarschaft", haarscharf, and so on. See also de:MediaWiki Diskussion:Titleblacklist#"arsch", "spast", "ismus", "account". So just blocking "Arsch" without the following L/I is not possible. --Bjarlin (talk) 22:47, 25 January 2017 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done @Bjarlin: The antispoof extension has been improved and made less complicated, so you are correct that we can update. I have added though with a delimiter \b to ensure that we are at a word beginning. If that is too tight then we can loosen it.  — billinghurst sDrewth 01:01, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks, is this also possible for the other words "scheiss" and "wichser/wixer"? And also ".* ist schwul.*" could be changed to antispoof without problems. Nobody needs those account names, there are big problems with insulting and toilet names at dewiki. Also there the s could be changed into an ṣ, the e could become an é or è or ê or whatever more. I think, these few words in the blacklist should and can all be changed to antispoof, not only one of them. --Bjarlin (talk) 04:24, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
antispoof added, simplified though left some of the regex in place.  — billinghurst sDrewth 07:09, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
That's looking well now, thank you. --Bjarlin (talk) 18:28, 26 January 2017 (UTC)

Woe Ray Raiyan

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)

José Rafael Cordero Sánchez

Would 300+ crosswiki recreations of a non-notable autobio over the past 4-5 years using creative variations of the name qualify for global blacklisting or filtering? LTA log file is on Dutch Wikipedia, and was started by global sysop MoiraMoira.

Measures taken locally include:

  • A regex was added to the titleblacklist on Spanish Wikipedia by Taichi in April 2016.
  • A filter was set up on Simple Wikipedia by Chenzw in June 2016.
  • On multiple other projects, a host of different spellings of his name have been salted, but typically only after a 3rd deletion.

Current status is that he's only working off IPs. When he does create a new sock, his first action will be creation of an autobio; at least in the recent few years he has not established himself as autoconfirmed. (That's relevant for you to know, right?) I have, frankly, for the past many months neither had the time nor the inclination to weekly try to check up on this guy's activity, and we may have missed an unknown number of recreations that just got speedied. Time to put the foot down? Thanks, Sam Sailor 10:20, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

@Sam Sailor: Yes check.svg Done as a raw antispoof. Please continue to report successful edits that circumvent the blacklist so we can update the regex. I will look through to what I have access to see if I can adapt to some of the existing variations. Thanks.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:44, 12 April 2017 (UTC)
@Taichi: For your filters at esWP, with the update to antispoof last year, you should be able to simplify some of those filters.  — billinghurst sDrewth 23:46, 12 April 2017 (UTC)

Neo-Nazi usernames

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)

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 [2] 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)

Excessively long usernames

I proposed this over a year ago, but the discussion died out without reaching a clear consensus. The basic issue is that the change to SUL usernames got rid of the old software-imposed 64-character username limit, so now vandals can register absurdly long usernames. Several wikis have addressed this by enacting their own limits (commonly 40 characters), but we should really create some kind of global limit. I was originally suggesting that we impose a 50-character limit, but in order to make this completely uncontroversial, how about we just reinstate the 64-character limit that everyone was used to?

I am agnostic on the matter. Vandals will be vandals, and the length of the username is irrelevant to me. I am more interested in whether it is problematic for users. Can we generate a quarry report, or similar, that looks at how many accounts have more than 64 characters, and the block count or lock status, or a list of such. I would much prefer an evidence-base for implementing something like this.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:57, 15 June 2017 (UTC)

Title brownlist

I propose the introduction of a Title brownlist, which affects all Wikimedia wikis, except Wiktionaries (due to CJK languages), with the language prefixes de, als, bar, dsb, frr, hsb, ksh, nds, and stq, and prevents the creation of titles containing the Unicode characters U+0FD5-U+0FD8, U+534D, U+5350, U+11C70, U+11C79, U+11C99, U+1B204, U+1B2C8, and U+2D16B, all of which look like a swastika, by non-admins in these projects. --84.61.155.32 16:34, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

User names starting with ß

It is planned, that even the German letter ß, which had no capital form, will automatically be capitalized at the start of page titles. To prevent disruptions against user names starting with the letter ß, I propose the addition of

ß.* <newaccountonly>

to the title blacklist. --84.61.154.157 10:24, 5 July 2017 (UTC)

I am pretty certain that this is better to be discussed and resolved at deWP. If there is any concern about difficulties in enforcing change that solving systematic issues at the blacklist level is the wrong way to do it.  — billinghurst sDrewth 10:58, 6 July 2017 (UTC)

Peniz

Could there be a filter to disallow new accounts that have "peniz", a deliberate misspelling of "penis" in them? For examples, just look at this: [3]. It shows that the vandalism is ongoing and recent. It might also be good to have a filter for "penis", but then you would have to add stuff to the title whitelist to allow stuff like "penismighterthanthesword", "penistone", etc. RileyBugz (talk) 19:56, 26 August 2017 (UTC)

Question Question: how many good faith user accounts exist with that pattern?  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:37, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I don't really know, but there are no good faith accounts (those with edits that have not been blocked) that start with "peniz". Plus, this vandalism is ongoing; for example, I just saw a user named "Ducks biting off your peniz" at UAA on enwikipedia. RileyBugz (talk) 15:07, 27 August 2017 (UTC)
Tool to use is toollabs:meta/gusersearch/, or you can utilise quarry: Looking at toollabs:meta/gusersearch/?name=%peniz% it shows that we have a few accounts that legitimately use the string, the vast bulk are abuse.  — billinghurst sDrewth 22:33, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Nazi-related misspellings

Firstly, even if the third sound in German words such as Nationalsozialismus is pronounced as a “z”, it is spelled with the letter “t”. Secondly, phonetic misspellings such as Nazionalsozialismus are stigmatized throughout the German-speaking area. Thirdly, some Romance languages, such as Italian and Romansh, spell the translations of “national” with a “z”, but those of “socialism” with a “c”. To prevent Nazi-related misspellings, I propose the addition of

.*nazionalsoz.*

to the title blacklist. See also: de:Nazionalsozialismus. --84.61.154.157 15:10, 4 August 2017 (UTC) --84.61.154.157 19:49, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

(TIB

Hi, regarding this long term cross-wiki abuser, would it make sense to TBL \(TI.*? This seems (to me) like it would have been done a while ago, so perhaps there are reasons not to. Also to me, it looks like these are automated account creates, that often immediately identify themselves, so perhaps he's trying for a sort of trophy case where he can point to the response from the user lists since they all start the same? For some context, see the enwiki EF log: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:AbuseLog&wpSearchFilter=579 Thanks, Crow (talk) 18:45, 30 August 2017 (UTC)

  • @Billinghurst: actually, it seems from this guy's method, that he'd not adapt much. TIB/TSB (and also CSS it appears) are Singaporean bus route prefixes, which is this sock's obsession.

Raymond and I are running some tests with SternthalerBot to batch upload an image donation, scanned with support of Wikimedia Deutschland. We ran into the above "tech support spam" regex with the following file names (there will be more with these numbers as they indicate the negative strips):

Tibetan swastikas and hammer-and-sickle

Unlike U+534D and U+5350, which are used in some or all CJK languages, the characters U+0FD5-U+0FD8 and U+262D are just symbols, which are not used in the orthography of any language.
