The anti-spam filter here is excessive to the point of being silly

197.235.76.58 (talkcontribs)

The spam filter is even triggering for non-links simply by typing "http://" as you'll see in the logs when I attempt to publish this for the first time.

There is anti spam, and there is silly overzealous lazy moderation, this is an obvious case of the latter.

Malyacko (talkcontribs)

If something triggered some filter, please provide clear steps to reproduce and the error message that you received. Thanks.

197.235.76.58 (talkcontribs)

Err, just check my Ip in the logs and you'll find it.


The steps to reproduce are already the part below and above. Simply add any gibberish that includes the text bellow without spaces:


ht tp:// sillyspamfilter

I had to remove colons from this post (www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Topic:V394zwrigth8ii7c&topic_showPostId=v3rzodjka0txbkft#flow-post-v3rzodjka0txbkft) before it went through.


This anti spam is excessive to the point of blocking links to this site itself. Speechless...

Strange behaviours concerning 'Contribution' link on date selection

3
Summary by MarkAHershberger
Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all. Three strange behaviours concerning the user 'Contribution' function in upper right link. Selection configuration is the defaut one and does not impact.

1. I want my job of yesterday (17 jul 2019): I select 500 records per page, I select both the same dates in the calendar, and hit Search . Then I see work of 17 jul 2019 but also 15 , 14 ...

=> the dates displayed should be limited to what is requested.

2. I want my contributions for a day I have not worked (Wed 10 july 2019) I follow the same procedure and I see what has been done before i.e. : 8 july, 6 july ...

=> the search should match the requested date

3. I erroneously swap FROM date being younger than TO date i.e. FROM 16 july TO 15 july and hit Sarch ; then the dates swap automatically on the screen and it displays my contributions of today 17 jul and 16 and 15 and 14....

=> one can chose to display the contributions in reverse order, or popup a warning to input correct dates, but the display limits should always restrict to the selected dates.

Request to purge cache after each new deployment

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Following message "The next update for this wiki will be on Tuesday, 9 July 2019 as part of the wmf.13 deployment." I still see on my screen old translated messages indicating that the corrections were not applied. In fact they were and Shirayuki proposed to use ?action=purge in the URL - and it works, i then see translated messages correctly. Is it possible to reset the cache automatically to avoid such ambigous misinterpretations ? Thanks.

separator '''·''' in <languages/> not well rendered on translated pages

Summary by Wladek92

done. Need to purge the cache and force regeneration of the page after a new deployement occured to see the correction.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all I just open page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages

If my default page language is set to EN, page is ok and separator · is well rendered as a full round bullet. But now, when i switch to FR as always, I see that in this case, this separator is no longer interpreted and remains with quotes. Why ?

Autres langues :

English '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/fr|français]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/hu|magyar]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/pl|polski]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/ru|русский]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/zh|中文]] '''·''' ‎[[Manual:$wgAllowExternalImages/ja|日本語]]

Thank you

.... appears also for other languages except EN can you chek first line and send for translation ? i corrected with a space, others use also {{ }} and i m a bit lost with what to use.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Sounds better replacing

<languages/> by {{Languages}}

ok updated in translatewiki / Mediawiki Core. Thanks all.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

We cannot declare solved because mediawiki still displays the error. How long does it take to have the Mediawiki Core correction made in translatewiki.net visible on the Mediawiki pages ?

ok I follow this subject and then close if all is ok.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Let us say OK ; the separator is very discrete but corrected:

Autres langues :

English · ‎français · ‎magyar · ‎polski · ‎русский · ‎中文 · ‎日本語

Thanks.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

I reopened the subjetc just because some pages seems NOT to support the actual correction : Example 1 : https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Talk_pages shows a BIG BULLET more visible instead of the small one:

Other languages: English  • dansk • Deutsch • español • français • Bahasa Indonesia • 日本語 • 한국어 • polski • português do Brasil • русский • 中文  

Example 2: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Category:Recent_changes_variables/fr seems indifferent to the correction :

Autres langues :
Deutsch '''·''' ‎English '''·''' ‎español '''·''' ‎français '''·''' ‎magyar '''·''' ‎polski '''·''' ‎português do Brasil '''·''' ‎日本語

done. Thanks.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all, on page https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Talk_pages following string which holds a specific markup is just used to illustrate an example and is consequently interpreted as an entry to the TOC !

== Soup == <!--T:15--> 

which provides:

Sommaire
1 Editing conventions on talk pages
1.1 Example
2 Soup
3 Editing discussions
4 Building articles - Discussing articles
5 User talk pages

Can anyone correct protecting this string in a given manner ? Thanks.

Removed Soup from the TOC.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Hi all, When I first try to save my translation in French, I am trapped because I trigger a blacklist entry and cannot continue. Can anyone correct to deblock the situation ? Thanks.

AKlapper (WMF) (talkcontribs)

@Wladek92 What makes you think that you are banned? Nothing that you posted says that you are banned.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Échec de l’enregistrement de la traduction means I cannot save any thing of this page. 'Banned from creation' is output in the message. Please read the post completly, make the test yourself, or try to provide a solution if possible.

Hi, I edited the blacklist for you, can you try again now?

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Bingo ! Thanks , it is accepted now:

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Re-opened => the problem is now the same but with name space 'Category:' when I try to translate with => https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Translate&group=page-Category%3AGoogle+extensions&language=fr&action=page&filter=%21translated

The filter should not select the namespace to be a bit wider. Thanks

Translations:Category:Google extensions/Page display title/fr

Category:Google extensions

94rain (talkcontribs)

I guess it would solve the problem if admins can add Extension:GoogleLogin\/.* and Category:Google extensions\/.* to MediaWiki:Titlewhitelist. Or, if it is appropriate, please allow autoconfirmed users to create pages with Google in the title in the Titleblacklist.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Yes I hope administrators are still present.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

Sorry, forgot about this. Try now?

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

sorry not good; we are now speaking of "Category:Google extensions"

Krenair (talkcontribs)

I know which titles you're talking about, I think I did it wrong. Try now?

Wargo (talkcontribs)

I think the whole blacklist line is unnecessary on this website.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

yes again i say it is wrong with msg

Échec de l’enregistrement de la traduction : The title "Translations:Category:Google extensions/1/fr" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: " .*g+(o+)g+le?\S?((?!Summer of Code\/\d{4})|(?!Code-in\/\d{4})|(?!Login)|(?!extensions)).*"

The first correction made by Krenair was ok; please do the similar for Category to unblock the situation.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

I think I know what's up, will rearrange this between the blacklist and whitelist to try to improve things.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

Try now?

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

Failure again:

Échec de l’enregistrement de la traduction : The title "Translations:Category:Google extensions/1/fr" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: " .*g+(o+)g+le?\S?.*"
Wargo (talkcontribs)

Krenair, tip: you can use online regex testers. And again, consider removing this blacklist line.

Krenair (talkcontribs)

I'm trying to avoid removing the blacklist line. I've checked my latest whitelist change against regexr.com and it should match your title. If this fails I will remove the blacklist line as too problematic for legitimate users.

Wladek92 (talkcontribs)

bingo ! it works now. Thank you. Champagne !
