Verify that abuse-/spam-related extensions work with Wikibase MediaInfo
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Before deploying the SDC baseline, we need to be sure that vandalism and spam is caught. Two important mechanisms for that are AbuseFilter and SpamBlacklist.

Wikibase should provide automatic integration with these via the EditFilterHookRunner class, which should work for all Wikibase edits, regardless of MCR. But this needs to be verified before deployment.

Doesn't this block T194750 ahead of T199352? Spammy or abusive edits in file caption slots need to get detected and caught too…

@Jdforrester-WMF You are right. I was mostly thinking of spam links, but dick jokes in file captions also suck (no pun intended). Changing.
