arwiki abusefilterEdit

Hello, just noticed AbuseFilter parser error for filter 91: Unrecognized variable basepagename at character 361 while browsing LogStash. Seems to be a local error. Can you have a look, please? Sorry to hear you're under stress! --Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:46, 4 July 2019 (UTC)

Affects also 130 AbuseFilter parser error for filter 130: Unrecognized variable basepagename at character 256. and 122 AbuseFilter parser error for filter 122: Unrecognized variable basepagename at character 308.. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 22:49, 4 July 2019 (UTC)
Hi @Martin Urbanec: Alaa just ping me to reply. I'm abuse filter editor in arwiki. And I think I can help. The problem is that when I check the filters for errors, it results no errors. And it says that the filter works 100%. Can you tell me where did you find the error log of the filters (URL maybe)?. About basepagename, this a variable created to get the page title of user page like this (user:ASammour/test -> ASammour). This variable is very important for many filters to detect mass vandalism happen in arwiki from time to time. Best.--ASammour (talk) 16:52, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for your reply. This message was from LogStash, which is an interface that allows authorized users to view logs from Wikimedia wikis. I can give you a link, but you won't be able to access it anyway. If the filter works (tried that, seems it does), it's probably caused by something else. Thanks for your time. --Martin Urbanec (talk) 17:32, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello @Martin Urbanec: Do you mind giving you permanent Abusefilter editor permission on arwiki? --Alaa :)..! 20:09, 5 July 2019 (UTC)
Hello, in case the community wants me to help them with abusefilters or would otherwise benefit from me having the permissions, then yes, I'll be more than happy to help (just ping me when you'd need anything AF-related). I don't really need the permission, it turned out to be a bug in AF extension (see phab:T214674). --Martin Urbanec (talk) 20:12, 5 July 2019 (UTC)


Hi, I requested administrator access for permanently, not only for 6 months in Zazaki Wikipedia. The community voted it as permanently, achieved consensus to make me admin permanently. Because there is no active admin in Zazaki Wikipedia. May you correct it please?. Best regards. Vuzorg (talk) 10:10, 20 July 2019 (UTC)

Hello @Vuzorg:. I can't found any things about permanent/temporary on your nomination, and we don't give permanent adminship in communities with less than 50 active users and 2 sysops (inactive). Also, it's your first nomination --Alaa :)..! 13:15, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
Yes, but as you say there is a little community in Zazaki Wikipedia and there are two inactive sysops, so there needs to be an active sysop. The period of 6 months is really short to gather all users again to vote on sysopship. It may be 1 year at least. Can't i get it for one year at least? Vuzorg (talk) 20:43, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Exert yourselfEdit

Hello Alaa, I am from zhwiki and I see that account was globally locked by you and enwiki sysop told me you may have run a xwiki checkuser on him. For another sock of IGBA was found at zhwiki, I come here to ask if you could give me some information about IGBA, thanks.--Hamish 19:11, 28 July 2019 (UTC)

@Hamish: I think Alaa should have done that global lock due to my SRG report here. Since one more sock is being found, I think a sleeper check will be worthwhile should more locks be needed. I think I'll file a SRCU request and could Alaa respond there. Thanks very much. --Cohaf (talk) 19:21, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
@Cohaf:Appreciate.--Hamish 19:28, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
@Hamish:Filed, I skipped local discussion as this is way too xwiki already. --Cohaf (talk) 19:30, 28 July 2019 (UTC)
