Checking whether save is possible before assigning Qids
Open, Needs TriagePublic


When somebody is blocked and they try to create a new item, save is not possible but wb_id_counters table is updated, therefore a Qid is lost permanently. This may be an abuse potential (creating higher database load) for malicious users with no way either to detect or to stop on wiki. Ideally no Qid should be assigned if the save is not possible (also when label/description conflict, invalid entity data, etc).
