    Prevent users from adding middle fingers in user space[edit]

    Per subject, personally I feel that middle finger emoji is inappropriate Wikipedia itself, noting how it is often used for talk page vandalism, I suggest here after a talk that filter 680 (or any other appropriate filter) should block middle finger emojis (and potentially other emojis being added by non-autoconfirmed/IP) from userspace, not just mainspace.

    I recommend adding it to 1053 (hist · log) and have a possible filter change, if any EFM wants to take a look mail me. Nobody (talk) 06:53, 8 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @1AmNobody24: Is this what you had in mind? Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 21:52, 12 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    @Suffusion of Yellow Not exactly, sent you a mail. Nobody (talk) 05:14, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Set filter 1305 to disallow[edit]

    Standard notification. Looks overly broad at first glance, but zero FPs so far. There are a few other checks that could be used to narrow it down, but I'll wait for FPs before doing so. Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 17:51, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Special note, I've assisted by creating changes for them to implement via email as this led to this filter's creation. Don't discuss details here. Codename Noreste 🤔 La Suma 18:47, 13 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    And already added to DatBot. Definitly needed for now. Nobody (talk) 05:07, 14 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Expanding 614[edit]

    In this thread, it was suggested to expand filter 614 (hist · log) to include low-effort ways to bypass the blocking of the meme "skibidi". While I know we can't block every variation, we could try to block some of the more common variations. Specifically, we could change \s*bozo|skibidi|gyatt part of 614 into \s*bozo|sk[i1]?b[i1]?d[i1]?(?<!skbd)|gyatt (change if there are any FPs, but I know that the string 'skbd' is used in some articles). Also pinging @Myrealnamm: and @Suffusion of Yellow: who participated in the previous discussion. – PharyngealImplosive7 (talk) 22:19, 16 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I have another suggestion: replace both gyatt and \bgyat\b with \bgyat{1,}\b, as the very latter I made (and tested with regex101) catches both gyat and gyatt. Codename Noreste 🤔 La Suma 17:36, 17 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    I think the issue with that is that right now, 'gyatt' is disallowed by the filter if it is present anywhere in the added text, while 'gyat' only is disallowed when alone and surrounded by spaces. We might have to test if that change leads to any FNs first. – PharyngealImplosive7 (talk) 16:52, 19 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Correct. If the absence of a word boundary isn't causing FPs, best to just leave it. Some people just see a text entry box, stab their finger somewhere in the middle, and start typing. Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 20:13, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    This was already almost covered by \bs+k+[i1bdt]{4,}y*\b, but they actually used "cskbidi". I removed the beginning word boundary, which is probably safe. Removing the ending boundary would match "skidding" and "skittish". Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 20:05, 20 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    "Nuh uh"[edit]

    I recently encountered this vandalism adding "Nuh uh" to the end of the artice. Anyone else encountered something like this as well? Feels like it's a possible candidate for mix-used words, noting how a known meme exists for the phrase as well. ABG (Talk/Report any mistakes here) 01:48, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I'm not 100% confident, but I'm pretty sure the mixed-use words and other related filters started based on data collated at User:Suffusion of Yellow/Commonly reverted words and phrases (EFN post: #New report to check before going to EFR).
    @Suffusion of Yellow, would it have shown in your reports if it was significant? – 2804:F14:80E4:8401:DCFE:5436:C21:470C (talk) 02:41, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    "Nuh" is already a part of 1297 (hist · log); they just ignored the warning. It seems to fluctuate in and out of the report, probably because I'm including all namespaces, and it's not revert-on-sight when posted on a talk page. Suffusion of Yellow (talk) 05:11, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    Skibidi uwu gyatt 42069[edit]

    I just got done with the bot-reported part of AIV: thank you, thank you to all of you building these filters that keep SO MUCH SHIT out of our articles. I appreciate it. Drmies (talk) 14:20, 23 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]

    I had a look because I was curious, and I can absolutely say I have had enough of "gyatt" and related terminology for at least a few years. EggRoll97 (talk) 00:50, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
    Kudos to 614 (hist · log) for keeping all of this brainrot nonsense out from articles, ¿eh? Codename Noreste 🤔 La Suma 01:35, 24 May 2024 (UTC)[reply]
