Proposed additionsEdit

  This section is for proposing that a page title be blacklisted; add new entries at the bottom of the section. Provide links demonstrating widespread creation by multiple users or IP's. Completed requests will be marked as done or denied and archived.

New entryEdit

Add this entry to the blacklist:

.*you will be blocked.* <newaccountonly>

Is this a systemic issue? Long happening? Broadly happening? Not managed by other means, eg. checkuser IP blocks? It would be very simple to step around for any vandal, so I wonder at its usefulness.  — billinghurst sDrewth 20:06, 25 November 2021 (UTC)

Proposed removalsEdit

  This section is for proposing that a title be unlisted; please add new entries at the bottom of the section. Remember to provide the specific title or regex blacklisted, links to the articles they are used in or useful to, and arguments in favour of unlisting. Completed requests will be marked as done or denied and archived. The addition or removal of a title is not a vote, please do not bold the first words in statements.

Troubleshooting and problemsEdit

  This section is for comments related to problems with the blacklist (such as incorrect syntax or entries not being blocked), or problems saving a page because of a blacklisted title. This is not the section to request that an entry be unlisted (see Proposed removals above).
