Hi there - I'm developing a tool for creating new articles on Wikipedia using Wikidata. Listeria is the tool that queries Wikidata and generates a table of people to write about. Some have sources associated with them that have triggered the spam whitelist. Is there anyway of exempting my page from this? It's causing the list not to appear on Wikipedia -- on Wikidata it shows up just fine. Last note: I'll be moving this page away from my userspace into a Wikipedia space. Let me know if that will change things. User:Will_(Wiki_Ed)/Equity_queries/Gender

Please add to whitelist. They have useful non-copyrighted graphs of economic info.

This appears to be a useful site for discussing catharism and indeed, is the 2nd-ranked search result webpage on catharism (behind only Wikipedia's page on the subject). It appears to have been blacklisted back in 2007 because it is owned by James McDonald, and many links were being put on Wikipedia to his sites. Nonetheless, the edits in question appear to have been constructive in many instances (e.g. providing citations to pages on catharism/the Albigensian Crusade lacking in citations). This diff, e.g., was what A.B. chose to show as evidence of spamming at the time.

Simply submitting edits with links to a legitimate site, e.g., does not mean that is evidence of a spamming pattern necessitating blacklisting of In the same way, I disagree with blacklisting all of James McDonald's sites, particular (which is a top-ranked search site with very useful info on cathars) so that individual wiki owners like myself can't cite it. There appears no issue with the site content or an objection to said content would have been raised by now. As such, I would like this site whitelisted so I can cite it on my wiki.
