The associated page is used by the MediaWiki Spam Blacklist extension, and lists regular expressions which cannot be used in URLs in any page in Wikimedia Foundation projects (as well as many external wikis). Any Meta administrator can edit the spam blacklist; either manually or with SBHandler. For more information on what the spam blacklist is for, and the processes used here, please see Spam blacklist/About.

Proposed additions
Please provide evidence of spamming on several wikis. Spam that only affects a single project should go to that project's local blacklist. Exceptions include malicious domains and URL redirector/shortener services. Please follow this format. Please check back after submitting your report, there could be questions regarding your request.
Proposed removals
Please check our list of requests which repeatedly get declined. Typically, we do not remove domains from the spam blacklist in response to site-owners' requests. Instead, we de-blacklist sites when trusted, high-volume editors request the use of blacklisted links because of their value in support of our projects. Please consider whether requesting whitelisting on a specific wiki for a specific use is more appropriate - that is very often the case.
Other discussion
Troubleshooting and problems - If there is an error in the blacklist (i.e. a regex error) which is causing problems, please raise the issue here.
Discussion - Meta-discussion concerning the operation of the blacklist and related pages, and communication among the spam blacklist team.
#wikimedia-external-linksconnect - Real-time IRC chat for co-ordination of activities related to maintenance of the blacklist.
Whitelists
There is no global whitelist, so if you are seeking a whitelisting of a url at a wiki then please address such matters via use of the respective Mediawiki talk:Spam-whitelist page at that wiki, and you should consider the use of the template {{edit protected}} or its local equivalent to get attention to your edit.

Please sign your posts with ~~~~ after your comment. This leaves a signature and timestamp so conversations are easier to follow.


Completed requests are marked as {{added}}/{{removed}} or {{declined}}, and are generally archived quickly. Additions and removals are logged · current log 2024/06.

SpBot archives all sections tagged with {{Section resolved|1=~~~~}} after 3 days and sections whose most recent comment is older than 7 days.

Proposed additions

edit
  This section is for proposing that a website be blacklisted; add new entries at the bottom of the section, using the basic URL so that there is no link (example.com, not http://www.example.com). Provide links demonstrating widespread spamming by multiple users on multiple wikis. Completed requests will be marked as {{added}} or {{declined}} and archived.

Proposed removals

edit
  This section is for proposing that a website be unlisted; please add new entries at the bottom of the section. Use a suitable 3rd level heading and display the domain name as per this example {{LinkSummary|targetdomain.com}}. Please do not add the protocol part of domain name, eg. http

Remember to provide the specific domain blacklisted, links to the articles they are used in or useful to, and arguments in favour of unlisting. Completed requests will be marked as {{removed}} or {{declined}} and archived.

See also recurring requests for repeatedly proposed (and refused) removals.

Notes:

  • The addition or removal of a domain from the blacklist is not a vote; please do not bold the first words in statements.
  • This page is for the removal of domains from the global blacklist, not for removal of domains from the blacklists of individual wikis. For those requests please take your discussion to the pertinent wiki, where such requests would be made at Mediawiki talk:Spam-blacklist at that wiki. Search spamlists — remember to enter any relevant language code

Tracked in Phabricator:
Task T366985

I wanted to use this article from this newspaper for sourcing an article but was met with resistance. Why is this news publication blacklisted? Seems reliable to me, saw nothing fishy on the city and the article I wanted to refer to was well written, had no copyvio and a clear author. Estrellato (talk) 00:59, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

You were able to link the site in your removal request (referring to "this article"), so it is not globally blacklisted. Please direct your request to the wiki you are having issues with. - XXBlackburnXx (talk) 01:23, 1 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
It's not in our local blacklist either (svwiki), but I couldn't link it. So I have no idea what the issue might be. I had to use it as a bookref instead (see sv:Ferrarito)Estrellato (talk) 07:16, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
There is nothing in the local sbl and abuse filter logs either and I could add the link in my sandbox there. I suggest asking the local svwiki administrators about this with the exact error message. There is nothing we can do for you here. Count Count (talk) 10:32, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I tried to add it on svwiki using the visual editor, it said "This source is considered unreliable by our community, and therefore is not allowed. Please choose a different reliable source.". This could be the reason Estrellato couldn't save their edit. Though I don't know what is causing this. - XXBlackburnXx (talk) 22:07, 2 June 2024 (UTC)Reply
Apparently it comes from the "Reference Reliability check" from the Edit check project. It supposedly checks the MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist or MediaWiki:BlockedExternalDomains.json but obviously something is wrong with it. Count Count (talk) 05:15, 3 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

I filed a bug report on Phabricator: T366985. Marking as   Declined, as there is nothing further for us to do here. --Count Count (talk) 06:06, 8 June 2024 (UTC)Reply

Troubleshooting and problems

edit
  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 link. This is not the section to request that an entry be unlisted (see Proposed removals above).
