AbuseFilter false positive report (fixed)

Armorica Online (talkcontribs)

Well, we meet again, Ondo!

I was working on the creation of an article about Uranians, a 19th Century classification/group of third gender people which later came to encompass effeminate men.

When I went to publish the article, however, the vandalism filter appeared, refusing to let me publish it. I'm not sure if this is just because I haven't been autoconfirmed yet, or because of the contents of what I'm trying to post. The one thing that might have made the filter think I'm a vandal (which I can think of) is that the pseudonym given to a schizophrenia patient who identified as a Uranian was Adolf, which I wouldn't be surprised if the filter took that and thought I was talking about the other, infamous Adolf.

(I'm not sure if this makes anything more clear, but the abuse rule it says I violated is: Prevent vandalism from non-autoconfirmed users)

I have the contents saved for when I'm able to post the article, so should I just wait the couple of days until I'll be autoconfirmed? I'm in no rush (a little extra editing time would be nice) and doing as the template says, so I don't need a rule change to get this on here faster!

Hi! I reviewed the logs and it was the most frequent false-positive, so I've tweaked the filter and it shouldn't trigger anymore with your edit. The autoconfirmed statues is given out after 4 days and 10 edits (both conditions must be met), just so you know.
