Hi Shanmugamp7, I am developing a antispam extension, which automatically detects spam edits based on bayesian techniques. For that I need a lot of spam entries for training data. I was looking at the delete log, and you have marked many spam there. Is there any way I can get the hold of that data. Please contact me on for details. I maybe better able to explain myself. --Anubhav iitr (talk) 06:40, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

Thank you![edit]

Much thanks for your help today, dealing with the Flow spam. Sorry it wasn't easier to deal with, but it did help re-prioritize this week's dev work! Best wishes, Quiddity (WMF) (talk) 08:24, 7 January 2014 (UTC)

Hey Shan, a few quick requests;

  1. Autoreview is redundant on your account so, may want to consider removing that :p
  2. I was wondering if I could possible have 'Editor' as looking around I could help out a bit with areas of MediaWiki where I am knowledgeable with reviewing other work etc.

Thanks, John F. Lewis (talk) 14:08, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes Done. Next time please use project:Requests. --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 14:11, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Thanks and will do. John F. Lewis (talk) 14:12, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

AbuseFilter 41[edit]


Special:AbuseFilter/41 triggered a block on a legitimate edit [1]. I asked on IRC to unblock him but there was nobody available at that moment to tell me what triggered the block to avoid it. Maybe you could check it to tell the user to avoid using certain words / syntax. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 10:42, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

The same user has now been blocked again because of posting a thanks message on this page... Maybe the filter is being triggered because of the username? This needs investigation. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 17:09, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
Hi, Sorry i wasn't around at that time. I know that this filter might have false positives but we had this mass flow spam attack, that's why we have enabled 'block user' temporarily. Now if there are no flow spam attacks we can just disable 'block' --Shanmugamp7 (talk) 08:52, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Apparently, the filter is matching that particular user, it doesn't matter what he posts. The filter should be edited to fix this problem so this user is not trapped but spam edits do. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) 10:29, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
this is just a test to check whether I can post again here...--ContributorQ (talk) 11:39, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
It now seems to work. I don't know why I was blocked on last october... Anyway, thank you all for your help.--ContributorQ (talk) 11:43, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
... Too bad, I still can not post a message on the Support desk's page. I've just tried a few minutes ago and I've faced a warning message : This edit has been identified as spam... This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and has been disallowed. If you believe your edit was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Temporary mass spambot attack. How can I get rid of this ?--ContributorQ (talk) 12:05, 27 December 2015 (UTC)
I have modified the filter please try now. You should be able to edit, let it me know if it is otherwise, thanks--Shanmugamp7 (talk) 06:52, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
At last, it is Ok. I have successfully post a message in the Support Desk forum. Thank you very much.--ContributorQ (talk) 18:13, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
