Hello, Moebeus. Welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum if you need help with something (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). Also worthwhile acquainting yourself with the functions of global user pages. Happy editing!
@Billinghurst: Thank you for taking the time! As an editor on Wikidata I spend most of my time editing music-related items and have found the blog in question to be a pretty good source of information on female pop singers of the 1960s. Ultimately my only objective here is being able to link to artist bios on the site when appropriate.
I wonder if readysteadygirls.eu - a pretty good blog on European female 1960s pop singers imo - is stopped by the spam filter for actual abuse, or if it's caught by some "suspected porn" heuristic based on the domain name? Not a huge deal, but personally/anecdotally I've found this to be a well-kept and information dense website dedicated to female musicians.
Where do I go from here? Moebeus (talk) 11:23, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
The conversation belongs at talk:spam blacklist, to where you transferred it, and there I linked to the original request from 2008 for the blacklisting. A removal needs a rational argument about it being a reliable source, or at least the best quality source for the subject matter, or reasonable to be used at the Wikimedia wikis. Getting support of a community, or some contributors, is useful to develop a consensus. (The argument for use at Wikidata also needs to state that the solution of a local whitelisting will not be sufficient.) The argument for removal needs to also consider whether we were being link-spammed and it was reasonable to protect ourselves with a global blacklist, or whether it is still a pertinent defence today compared to the time of the blacklisting. — billinghurstsDrewth 21:43, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
The 2021 Community Wishlist Survey is now open!
This survey is the process where communities decide what the Community Tech team should work on over the next year. We encourage everyone to submit proposals until the deadline on 30 November, or comment on other proposals to help make them better.
The communities will vote on the proposals between 8 December and 21 December.
The Community Tech team is focused on tools for experienced Wikimedia editors.
You can write proposals in any language, and we will translate them for you. Thank you, and we look forward to seeing your proposals!
We invite all registered users to vote on the 2021 Community Wishlist Survey. You can vote from now until 21 December for as many different wishes as you want.
In the Survey, wishes for new and improved tools for experienced editors are collected. After the voting, we will do our best to grant your wishes. We will start with the most popular ones.
We, the Community Tech, are one of the Wikimedia Foundation teams. We create and improve editing and wiki moderation tools. What we work on is decided based on results of the Community Wishlist Survey. Once a year, you can submit wishes. After two weeks, you can vote on the ones that you're most interested in. Next, we choose wishes from the survey to work on. Some of the wishes may be granted by volunteer developers or other teams.
