Is anybody familiar with rate of created accounts on this wiki? A concerned editor showed up in my talk page.

The account creation at Special:Log does look odd. I thought these were automatically duplicated in CentralAuth. I'm going to see if someone on IRC can look.

<hexmode> who do I ask to look at the account creation rate here quiddity? ragesoss?

<quiddity> looking...  [11:58]

<Reedy> hexmode:


<hexmode> Reedy: quiddity: prompted by  [12:01]

<Reedy> At least at a graphing level, it doesn't look out of the ordinary

<hexmode> ok

<ragesoss> looks like all those accounts are the same ones recently being created on meta.

<Reedy> Yeah

<ragesoss> do you now automatically get a mediawiki account when you create a new SUL?

<Reedy> CA will propogate it

<ragesoss> or was that always the case?

<Reedy> I dunno if it's delayed via job queue

<Reedy> Not always the case, but it's been like that quite a while now  [12:02]

<Reedy> Since SUL finalisation stuff

<hexmode> Is it ok if I copy-paste this on the thread?

<Reedy> Sure

And some of those usernames are spam or profane and should be blocked.

@Brynda1231, if you see a username that should be blocked, it is going onto all the wikis (here is enwiki, for example). I think you would need to file a task in phabricator for it.
