Add SUL/CentralAuth variables to AbuseFilter
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

On Commons we've setup filters to stop Wikipedia Zero abuse from new accounts. Due to quirks, newer established users never auto-login to Commons until they upload a video. They are then blocked by Filter 180 for looking like a newbie. They then complain and then a sysop flags them a few days later.

CentralAuth variables to consider adding to AbuseFilter:

  • SUL merging/registration time
  • Global edit count
  • Combined list of all user groups (sysop on somewiki?)
  • Home wiki domain or database name

It should be, however it'll need some time :-)

@Daimona should this be closed given that Wikipedia Zero is being removed?

I don't think so. This seems to be about CentralAuth variables, not WP0. Although, of course, the reported use case about wp0 is no more.
