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.

Addition of Өөрд Хальмг to the global title blacklistEdit

An LTA has been using usernames with the format of "Өөрд Хальмг" + number of account, which has been repeatedly used to annoy others. Special:CentralAuth/Өөрд Хальмг 44, Special:CentralAuth/Өөрд Хальмг 23 and Special:CentralAuth/Өөрд Хальмг 22 are some examples. Nigos (talk) 13:26, 14 November 2019 (UTC)

I doubt this could prevent them instead of make them switch to another username and take us some time to recognize. --WhitePhosphorus (talk) 13:35, 14 November 2019 (UTC)
Agree with WhitePhosphorus, that is what they will do; it is hardly their first set of accounts they have abused with, especially with what they have abused me with. And that is the purpose of what they are doing, they are being a troll. Better off to write a local filter to stop them from editing. That is more adaptive from your perspective. Remember that this troll can see and knows about title blacklist.  — billinghurst sDrewth 13:59, 14 November 2019 (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).
