I'm not sure where exactly false positives should be reported, but here's some. I expected that granting the user the "confirmed" and/or "autopatrolled" rights would have done the trick, but that didn't work - what groups could I have used? Legoktm (talk) 08:09, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

@Legoktm: Having had a quick look, it seems it doesn't filter against groups at all. I agree that confirmed would be an appropriate group to exclude - do all projects use this group (or a variant, ie. autoconfirmed?) - TNT 08:50, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I added "confirmed" exclusion. Ruslik (talk) 09:42, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

Login throttling

Status:    Not done

Hi! I'm the alternate account of w:user:Enterprisey on ENWP. I seem to be getting the "You have made too many recent login attempts. Please wait 2 days before trying again." message way too frequently. Is there any way that the flag that tells the software to throttle my login attempts could be removed? --Enterprisey-alt (talk) 05:01, 10 February 2018 (UTC)

You should approach enwiki for a solution to your login and edit issues. If you have issues on wiki, then you may look to use their UTRS block resolution process.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:28, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
I'm not sure that they could do anything about it, seems to be more software-side to me. @Enterprisey-alt: you could open a phabricator ticket, and maybe get some more information about the login attempts and what can be done regarding your account. – Ajraddatz (talk) 05:37, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Ajraddatz I think that it is something that the local community needs to work with the user; see w:file:355-failed-attempts-2018-01-15.png there is a deeper problem here which the user has not expressed. A phabricator alone is not going to solve the issue when there is other components in play. Looking at the other accounts suggests that we have something else trying to login, so the community should probably assist the user.  — billinghurst sDrewth 05:57, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
@Enterprisey-alt and Enterprisey: If you login with your main account at meta, do you have the issue? If no, and once logged in, what happens when you follow a link to enWP?  — billinghurst sDrewth 06:07, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
It's a technical issue. You could inform the local community about the issue, but I don't see how a local admin on enwiki's UTRS could do anything about it. – Ajraddatz (talk) 06:12, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
Alright, I seem to be able to log in now on enwp. It also works when I log in on meta. A Phab ticket sounds like a good idea, and I will open one if this issue comes up again. Regarding what billinghurst suggested, I have re-enabled that notification and I haven't gotten any login attempts for over two weeks, so I should be good on that front. Thank you all for the advice! Enterprisey (talk) 20:53, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
And it just happened again! I've opened T186975. Enterprisey-alt (talk) 22:14, 10 February 2018 (UTC)
This was resolved, Enterprisey was doing it himself from a task he forgot about on his computer (see phab notes). This should be able to be canceled. — xaosflux Talk 03:14, 13 March 2018 (UTC)

@Jusjih:, you can just request the import tool for yourself? --Artix Kreiger (Message Wall) 03:01, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Hold on please. Please give us more time for discussion. Thank you.--J.Wong 13:45, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
Surely wait for b:zh:维基教科书:删除请求 to decide.--Jusjih (talk) 02:35, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
The result is that only one page (b:zh:1/81的循環節) needs to be imported, until the revision 98674 (included). There are only less than 50 revisions and we can ask local admins to deal with that. Maybe it's time to close this request? It seems that local admins cannot import from zhwikibooks. (cc @Jusjih) --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 07:58, 2 March 2018 (UTC)
@Jusjih, Wong128hk, and WhitePhosphorus: any new thing here? and why not just copy and paste it on wikiversity? --Alaa :)..! 17:35, 17 March 2018 (UTC)

Massive vandal attack at the Udmurt Wikipedia

Status:    Done

There is a massive vandal attack at w:udm today. I marked several pages for deletion, but pretty much everything created by IP users today is vandalism. I am not a global admin, and help is needed. (I am a global rollbacker though and will roll back now whaterer can be rolled back). Thanks.--Ymblanter (talk) 21:21, 23 March 2018 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion required for publicity-seeker page

Status:    Done

A new page created on the ZU WP for zu:Jaume Vives has no notability (whether Zulu language or South Africa) for this small, underpopulated project. The subject appears to be a young journalist/artist with a local presence only (CA WP/ES WP), and the Wikidata item d:Q19299759 is poorly sourced. I suspect promotional motives. -- Deborahjay (talk) 06:33, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
