Forums: Index WoWWiki technical Not able to edit Page: Tradeskill leveling table

I was trying to add more helpful blacksmithing/alchemy/enchanting professions links to the Tradeskill Leveling Table page, I was able to preview the page edits just fine however it won't let me save the changes because of errors inputted by another user for another site(thenoobschool). It kept telling me that Thenoobschool links has errors.

I even went in to simply add a missing "www" on one of the links just to see if it'd let me save the changes, it still wouldn't save and just error out saying that Thenoobschool links in the code is invalid.

I went ahead to test it out further by removing the Thenoobschool links, it still wouldn't let me save the changes pointing out that yet Another site's link in the source code is invalid. I remove that other site plus Thenoobschool links, still same result, won't save and point to yet a different site that has invalid links in the page. Seems to me the "-" in the links are triggering the filter to not let us save the page?

Please help, thank you.

Someone apparently added to the spam-blacklist. You will either need to remove all the occurrences of that web site from Tradeskill leveling guides or get an admin to remove it from the blacklist. It could be on the blacklist for a good reason, but it seems dumb to add a site to the blacklist without checking to see if a bunch of pages use it or not. It is also possible it is part of a global Wikia blacklist, in which case you would need to use Special:Contact to get it removed.
The list of admins can be found here: Special:ListUsers/sysop. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 9:24 PM PST 18 Nov 2010
I've looked all over and I can't find where the blacklist is defined. I'd remove it if I knew where the blacklist was. --Kris talk 12:32, November 19, 2010 (UTC)
Normally, I think it would be MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist, but it may be in a Wikia global blacklist which I used to know the URL of, but have forgotten. It is also possible it isn't publicly viewable anymore. You should probably use Special:Contact and have Wikia staff look into it. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:28 PM PST 20 Nov 2010
I did a little research and it looks like you can report the problem here: w:c:vstf:Spam filter
Make sure to check that the site is not blacklisted for a good reason first, though.
The Wikia global blacklist was publicly viewable, but isn't anymore. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 4:32 PM PST 20 Nov 2010
