WHY[edit | edit source]
I was editing Bakhos user page, but why he said "Error: This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your edit was good, please talk with an administrator of what you were trying to do. A small description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Article generated for spam", all the time. I'm a great editor. — This unsigned comment was added by Bakhos (talk • changes).
- Hi Bakhos. I'm Chris and I'm an admin here. We have a thing on Vikidia called an abuse filter. Sometimes people come here to try and advertise things, or sell things to people. Some of these things aren't appropriate for children, so if the filter thinks that your text looks like an advert, it'll stop you making that change. I'll check your edits and find out what triggered the filter, then get back to you! Also, could you please remember to sign your comments, using 4 tilde marks, like this: ~~~~)? It'll add your name and the time & date you posted to your comment! Thanks! DaneGeld (talk) 12:37, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
- Hi again. Right, I've looked at the logs for the abuse filter and it appears that you were trying to change a template on your page from Vikidia user to Person biography. As well as you having the link to your YouTube channel on the page, I suspect the filter thought you were trying to advertise your channel. Vikidia has to be really careful with external links because we can't be sure that what our users click on, will be safe for them. I'm sorry you had problems and I'm pleased to see your page is ok. If you have anymore problems, please ask! DaneGeld (talk) 12:46, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
