Minutes from this morning's hour:

  • I am so glad the block preventing article creation in foreign scripts is still working.
  • I am so glad I like chicken more than I like Turkey.
  • I am so glad I missed out on the peak activity.

Can we agree that one or more sysop needs to be given access to Special:Protectsite? Or some other approach? ~SnapperTo 17:19, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

Words in that language wasn't included in the filter, it was actually generally meant for a different purpose. We do have AbuseFilter. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Oct 13, 2010 @ 17:25 (UTC) 17:25, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
Special:Protectsite is now usable by sysops. Keep in mind that protection for creation and editing is separate, so in a case like before you could actually probably simply set it so that you have to be a registered user to create a page to mitigate the attack. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Oct 13, 2010 @ 23:48 (UTC) 23:48, October 13, 2010 (UTC)
Not really, it can protect uploading, editing, moving, account creating and page creation from IPs and registered users as well. Omnibender - Talk - Contributions 00:15, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
Yay for useful non-obtrusive features :) SimAnt 00:23, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
I mean, creation and editing are separate, so ideally if possible it's a good idea to try protecting creation of new pages by anons without restricting general editing. ~NOTASTAFF Daniel Friesen (DanTMan, Nadir Seen Fire) (talk) Oct 14, 2010 @ 02:49 (UTC) 02:49, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
Could you poke them to separate page creation from image uploading? SimAnt 21:27, October 21, 2010 (UTC)
