Description
I was mainly extending the history section, just adding some more facts. Nothing odd or subjective - so the non-constructive notification was a surprise. Perhaps it is because I removed a photo and a link of a nearby housing development that someone had previously added to the page? These had nothing to do with the page topic, and had clearly been added for commercial purposes. Thanks.

Attempt was made to correct false information in the last sentence of the 'History' section. Technically, the stream is not "Salty Bet", but rather "Salty's Dream Cast Casino". Also the sentence indicates that all matches are 1 vs. 1, yet with the addition of 'Exhibition Matches', '2 vs. 1' and '2 vs. 2' matches are now a common occurrence. I do not know of any usable citations backing this up, besides for either the site's FAQ or simply visiting the site and seeing for yourself.

Many Thanks.

Monitor lizard (filter log)
Description
In the very last entry in the species list, V. spinulosus, I tried to move the local (not English) Solomon name saba that was added by an earlier user to after the citation, to avoid people being mislead to thinking that the directly following citation supports it (it doesn't -- it only supports the English name; Spiny-necked monitor). Having the local name in cursive after the English name also matches format used elsewhere in list and MOS:ITAL ("Foreign words" section). Basically:
V. spinulosus, Saba, Spiny-necked monitor<citation>
to
V. spinulosus, Spiny-necked monitor,<citation> saba

Metamodernism (filter log)
Description
I'm kind of befuddled here; new to this, and I wanted to discuss ways to make the page more representative of all the work that has appeared in reference to the term. I made no edits to the page itself; I merely engaged on the talk page, wanting to see what the general consensus/opinions were, and how we could improve upon what was already there. The user Esmeme has claimed I have connections with Festal82, which I assure is not the case; I'm a grad student wanting to see metamodernism gain more traction in the academic community. Feel free to conduct whatever necessary search. If I'm being honest, it appears I've been put on the wrong end of some sort of ridiculous cyber witch hunt.

Reporting this on behalf of an IP, 86.157.144.73, which five times attempted to change "later" to "latter" (text was "...scores to A, B, C, D, E, F, the latter made for television..."; this was definitely a correct move) and kept getting prevented by filter 622, genre edit-warring. The IP thought this page was protected and thus reported it at WP:VPT instead, so I figured I'd report it, since this definitely is a false positive.

The filter has a low, but unfortunately non-zero, false positive rate. The IP ranges effected are the home of three separate editors that have been blocked permanently for incessantly edit-warring about the genres of musical works, and this particular edit appeared to the filter to be just one more.—Kww(talk) 14:32, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

The filter stopped you because of the YouTube link; most YouTube videos are completely unsuitable for sources, and although this one is different (a news broadcast from RT (TV network), as far as I can tell), I don't know how the filter can understand this and allow anyone to add the link. However, I see this kind of link occasionally, so it's possible somehow; maybe someone familiar with the filter can suggest a way to include it? Nyttend (talk) 15:00, 10 August 2014 (UTC)

Description
All I did was add a bunch of internal links, and correct the spelling of three foreign names (so that the links to their already-existing Wikipedia pages would work). Why would a filter veto internal links?
Date and time

For what it's worth, it turned out to be the internal link to the NCAA Men's Tennis Championship (Individual champions, Singles) that was causing the problem. All the other internal links (and the spelling changes as well) went through without a hitch when I submitted them on their own, without the NCAA link. But that link — whether to the specific section, or just to the article as a whole — gets stymied by the filter every time.
(I initially left this section blank, as requested, but this additional information that I learned later on seemed important enough to pass along.)
"ASCII art"?????? The link was blocked because the filter thought its characters constituted a fragment of ASCII art??? (Apparently due to the inclusion of the string "_Men % 27 s_" in the URL text for "NCAA Men's Tennis Championship". Or else perhaps to the repeated characters "AA" and/or "nn" in "NCAA" and "Tennis"?) Good grief!

We are confused why you think we used first hand content as our references are verifiable third parties. Also, we did not use promotional materials, only objective facts referenced by reliable sources. Please advise how we can make our edits on this article stay without being removed, or our account being blocked. The current content that appears after we make our edits is errant, and unconstructive, and we need to resolve this issue. Lucky5576 (talk) 16:42, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

At No Pants Day, I was restoring the version of 2014-07-03T19:45:47 and was prevented.  I commented out an offending link, and now I get a new error that says, "An automated filter has identified this edit as potentially unconstructive, and it has been disallowed. If this edit is constructive, please report this error."  The page to where I was told to report, "WP:Edit filter/False positives", was marked that that was not the page to use, and it told me to post here.  There are no error numbers or any indication as to the nature of the problem.  The attempted edit summary was, "revert merge, this is the version of 2014-07-03T19:45:47 less a link to archive.today due to a software restriction".  Unscintillating (talk) 20:53, 16 August 2014 (UTC)

You restored a revision with a link to the blacklisted archive.is website, and the filter specifically watches for this link; it's not a false positive, but an ill-thought filter. The filter doesn't affect administrators, so I tried to revert to it, but because admins are affected by the spam blacklist, I still couldn't put it through. As a result, the only way to restore the desired contents was rather complicated:
  • Delete page
  • Restore the revision of 2014-07-03, 19:45:47, and all revisions before it
  • Make a null edit, creating a new revision from today
  • Restore the remaining deleted revisions, which were those after 2014-07-03, 19:45:47 and before the one I just now made
This works because it's possible to edit a page with a blacklisted URL; you just can't add it or revert an edit that removes it. As a result of all this, I accidentally produced an edit with a very confusing edit summary; I'm going to have to explain things at the talk page. Nyttend (talk) 21:21, 16 August 2014 (UTC)
Never mind, the filter prevents admins from adding the archive.is URL, but the spam blacklist no longer pays attention to this URL. With that in mind, the filter's working fine; the only problem is that we're still stuck with the mindset of getting revenge on the website's operator by preventing links to it.

adding in an editorial note indicating that a live url could not be saved into either archive.org or archive.today; this insertion took the form of a cite web parameter ... "deadurl=no". Revising to remove "archive.today" from the comment allowd the edit to be saved. I think that one should be able to refer to archive.today in a silent edit () even if links to archive.today are not allowed as live links. Thanks for considering this.

I was trying to add that he broadcasted NASCAR races in 1986, and I cited a youtube video of a race on ABC tv in 1986, which Trautwig was broadcasting. I got an error message that the edit is "potentially unconstructive" was would be disallowed.

this diff seems to indicate a false positive. Edit was performed by a new editor who has asked about it at the AFC helpdesk. I'm reporting it on their behalf.
