MediaWiki talk:Titleblacklist

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
The following instructions were copied from mw:Extension:Title Blacklist.

The title blacklist is maintained as a system message MediaWiki:Titleblacklist.

This page consists of regular expressions, each on a separate line. For example:

Foo <autoconfirmed|noedit|errmsg=blacklisted-testpage> 
[Bb]ar #No one should create article about it

There is no need to use "^" at the beginning, and "$" at the end; these are added automatically.

Each entry may also contain optional attributes, enclosed in <> and divided by |

  • autoconfirmed — only non-autoconfirmed users are unable to create/upload/move such pages
  • noedit — users are also unable to edit this article
  • casesensitive — don't ignore case when checking title for being blacklisted
  • errmsg — the name of the message that should be displayed instead of standard

When the action is blocked, one of the following messages is displayed together with the filter row (as $1): titleblacklist-forbidden-edit, titleblacklist-forbidden-move, titleblacklist-forbidden-new-account or titleblacklist-forbidden-upload. Generic filenames have their own custom error message, MediaWiki:Titleblacklist-custom-imagename.

There is also MediaWiki:Titlewhitelist and a global title blacklist.

Only administrators and template editors can override this list on all actions. Account creators can override this list on account creations only.

Blacklist addition request: Keezy K[edit]

Per Wikipedia:Sockpuppet investigations/Brianalaflair, requesting that keezy k be added to the blacklist, at least for a while. The non-notable bio has already been recreated with several variations, and the latest Mc Keezy k(Producer) is obviously trivially alterable were it salted. --McGeddon (talk) 22:48, 17 September 2015 (UTC)

Blacklist addition request: Sachin Tomar[edit]

Per Wikipedia:Sockpuppet_investigations/Iamsachintomar/Archive, requesting that sachin.+tomar be added to the blacklist. Sockpuppets have been creating articles with many trivial variations on the name "Sachin Tomar". --McGeddon (talk) 12:40, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Blacklist request: List of Master of Science in Bioinformatics[edit]

Requesting that List.+Master.+Bioinformatics be added to the blacklist. Macdorman (talk · contribs) is attempting to create the salted article List of Master of Science in Bioinformatics under a different title. RockMagnetist(talk) 21:03, 17 November 2015 (UTC)
