There's now also a #100wikidays challenge on Wikidata, aptly named #100wikidatadays! It is a personal challenge in which a person very significantly improves (at least) one Wikidata items per day, for 100 days in a row. There was already a version of the challenge on various Wikipedias, on Commons and on Wikisource - now on Wikidata as well. Participate and make Wikidata shine!
Hello, since you are more expert in spam issues, I would like to know if there is any effective way to stop this kind of situations, considering that they change IP, they use proxies and they have more than 1 week in the project with no way to stop them (these are all the accounts you have created). A steward implemented an abuse filter there but it has not worked either. Are there any more alternatives to stop this? Regards. —Alvaro Molina (✉ - ✔) 06:43, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
@AlvaroMolina: Abuse filters and title blacklist. I have updated Title blacklist to the shown examples. When we have people doing the spam rather than spambots they are unfortunately dynamically adapting. Always feel welcome to add alerts to Talk:Title blacklist for new variations, just like you have here, and that also means that it is global protection. — billinghurstsDrewth 07:13, 14 April 2017 (UTC)
You have used the "pre" command in citations. It seems to push the text overboard because there is no functioning line break in the "pre-text". Could you consider using some other way to do that? --Pxos (talk) 10:59, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Sorry about that, it was a quick and dirty comment late at night. — billinghurstsDrewth 13:21, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
An another thing altogether: the previous message titled "Wikidata weekly summary #256" seems to ruin the balance of the section system. This section is now subservient to the weekly summary, which is not nice. --Pxos (talk) 11:01, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Yep, looks that WD screwed up their sections. It will archive away in four weeks. — billinghurstsDrewth 13:21, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Fixed it. --Pxos (talk) 14:39, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
