Proposed removals

  This section is for archiving proposals that a website be unlisted.

I have already submitted a request to whitelist, but the exchange about this topic has disappeared from the discussion. So I come back again with my request. website has been blacklisted following a report concerning articles published on wikipedia from a user matucana that were linking to UGC pages. You have removed this user account as it is described here. Since this discussion, Wikio is no more allowing UGC content and has removed all UGC content. can be considered now as a reliable source of content. So there is no more reason to keep our company website blacklisted. So can you please delist website. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Kristoguy (talk)

Galapagos Cruise

We believe this site has been blacklisted by error. It is a site that has been listed in Galapagos cruise resources. It lists every boat in the Galapaagos Islands and offers booking services. The domain is being rejected by relating it to which has nothing to do with its similar site. I suggest it be removed from the blacklist as it is a useful resource for travelers planning a trip to the Galapagos Islands. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk)

Not blacklisted here. I see that you've already found the en.wp blacklist page. MER-C 09:03, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Seeking consultation

A significant amount of analysis and experimentation has happened over at the English Wikipedia's blacklist discussion page, resulting in identifying an acknowledged problem with its spam blacklist without a solution in regex. I am hoping there is regex expertise here that could review the details and suggest a solution. See for the discussion and for the background; the latter includes confirmation by the admin who introduced the problematic regex that the current regex needs to be fixed. Thanks in advance. 11:08, 6 May 2011 (UTC)

  Done. -- seth 12:12, 19 June 2011 (UTC)
