Title blacklist addition seems broad and an elevated status
Hi. While I don't doubt that there is some necessity to protect WMKR, I feel that the addition could have some discussion, especially in a broader context as at this stage none of WMFr, WMDE, WMSE, etc. are protected. To this point we have only protected WMF and that was due to their process for restricting the addition of addresses. If the accounts of the broader WM family are needing to be protected how should that occur, what is the provision for such a creation, and does there need to be a provision for closing out the account. Your relationship with koWP and presumably aspects of WMKR may be seen as an interest that would not have you implement what could be seen as a new policy approach. Personally, I think that there should be something analogous to an RFC for a consensus on what is appropriate if we are going to start offering a protected status to such accounts. — billinghurst sDrewth 11:53, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
- You are fine to revert it. I don't want to drain my time with RfCs when I have much more things to do. — regards, Revi 11:55, 16 May 2019 (UTC)
special:abuselog Korean language infused spam
Hi. I am sure that you have seen plenty of the spam in the abuselog that throws the occasional Korean language word/phrase as spam (I am presuming that they are actually proper words). Noting that I am seeing a fair amount related to casinos and betting at the moment. Is there any terms that you are seeing there that we could look to put into title blacklist maybe with use of <autoconfirmed> to put some of this away? Even if we need to globally blacklist the terms, then make some allowance through the local Korean instances of Mediawiki:titlewhitelist.
Other examples seen are
- It has to be broad term 'casino' (in this instance
카지노) that needs to be blacklisted to be effective. And you are right that it's casino — it's basically c:User:레비/KS. — regards, Revi 00:17, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
- Thanks. As a starting measure I have added the term to special:abusefilter/169 and if there any other easy terms to add then seems at least an easy place to lessen the load. — billinghurst sDrewth 01:51, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
