@Billinghurst: we need a Template:Blacklist-toolbox somewhere at the top. -- Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 10:23, 14 November 2021 (UTC)
Do you mean for listing the available templates, like is done in SRCU? If yes, can we wait until the allow and disallow rename is done in the next weeks? We can take notes of what we want to build in the list in the meantime.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:24, 14 November 2021 (UTC)

I am not managing to get the search right for the noredir components. <shrug>  — billinghurst sDrewth 02:26, 21 November 2021 (UTC)

adsense analysis going wild <=> web.archive.orgEdit

The xwiki reports of COIBot has kicked up so that reports are now three times the size that they were see classicalmusicianstoza.blogspot.ca history. Seeing this on predodminantly blogspot reports, though am seeing it elsewhere too, and seems to be related to Special:WhatLinksHere/User:COIBot/LinkReports/ which is the wayback machine web.archive.org.  — billinghurst sDrewth 11:43, 27 November 2021 (UTC)

Probably happens because the archive has the original website's AdSense, and then that gets assigned to archive.org. There is some data in there, but maybe I should code against storing adsense for archive.org (we may have that already). Please put it in User:COIBot/Wishlist and maybe I will get to it at some point. Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 10:41, 28 November 2021 (UTC)
@Billinghurst: I deleted 10588 rows of adsenses ... but I am afraid there are more to kill. Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 12:19, 14 December 2021 (UTC)

How we will see unregistered usersEdit


You get this message because you are an admin on a Wikimedia wiki.

When someone edits a Wikimedia wiki without being logged in today, we show their IP address. As you may already know, we will not be able to do this in the future. This is a decision by the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department, because norms and regulations for privacy online have changed.

Instead of the IP we will show a masked identity. You as an admin will still be able to access the IP. There will also be a new user right for those who need to see the full IPs of unregistered users to fight vandalism, harassment and spam without being admins. Patrollers will also see part of the IP even without this user right. We are also working on better tools to help.

If you have not seen it before, you can read more on Meta. If you want to make sure you don’t miss technical changes on the Wikimedia wikis, you can subscribe to the weekly technical newsletter.

We have two suggested ways this identity could work. We would appreciate your feedback on which way you think would work best for you and your wiki, now and in the future. You can let us know on the talk page. You can write in your language. The suggestions were posted in October and we will decide after 17 January.

Thank you. /Johan (WMF)

COIBot XWiki report format issueEdit

Hello. COIBot seems no to like https for a reason and keeps adding the protocol as a Link to blacklist. See e.g. User:COIBot/XWiki/jennycasino.com. Is this something you can fix on COIBot config? Thank you. Best regards, —MarcoAurelio (talk) 11:04, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

@MarcoAurelio no, that is something that gets picked up due to wrong formatted links in edits which I should manually kill in the db, and try again to stop detecting in the bot. Dirk Beetstra T C (en: U, T) 04:14, 24 March 2022 (UTC)
