Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.
In order to access the Phabricator task corresponding to a Bugzilla report, just remove "static-" from its URL.
You could still run searches in Bugzilla or access your list of votes but bug reports will obviously not be up-to-date in Bugzilla.

Description Effeietsanders 2007-08-26 13:39:16 UTC
Currently, when there is a spam attack, IP's cannot be prevented to continue their work before they are blocked on every single wiki. This gives a huge amount of work for stewards, and early detection is totally useless this way. Please provide the stewards with a new tool, a Wikimedia-wide block to make sure that a certain IP (and after SUL, maybe also username) is blocked on every single wiki. This would be very usefull in spambot attacks.

[[mw:Extension:RegexBlock]] might be something worth of a thought: Wikia uses it and it seems like a good solution for this.
