History of Alaska/Statehood (1959-present) (filter log)
Description
I tried edit more and an edit filter disallowed me to do so because it thinks, I'm making nonconstructive edits.

PSP/Translation Projects (filter log)
Description
I tried to keep the list up to date with current statuses as of October 2022, which involved adding and updating several links, triggering the "automated throttle designed to limit spammers".

@Pikawil: you may need to wait a while until you add more links, and try adding them one at a time. L10nM4st3r / ROAR at me! 20:19, 8 October 2022 (UTC)

@CrazyEyeOah: "blanking" pages is not allowed, and what you were doing made Wikibooks (wrongly) think you were blanking. You can get around this by removing a smaller bit of content per edit. Say, 1 or 2 paragraphs at a time? L10nM4st3r / ROAR at me! 14:39, 14 October 2022 (UTC)
ok thanks CrazyEyeOah (discusscontribs) 01:16, 15 October 2022 (UTC)

@Cherry-ALC: It appears that you've been trying to link-spam your own sandbox. Link-spamming is not okay, though. --SHB2000 (discusscontribs) 09:59, 18 October 2022 (UTC)

Trying to add addition content for class project as a team. Multiple saves were done since this was a group project. The last addition was to correct content and probably cite sources. New to wikibooks so sorry if I'm doing this incorrectly.

Chess Opening Theory/1. d4/1...d5/2. c4/2...c6/3. Nf3/3...Nf6/4. Nc3/4...a6/5. c5 (filter log)
Description
Creating new page on the main 5th move for white in the a6 Slav while not logged in (for that matter, while not having an account). Was told "[a] brief description of the error is storybots spam." Have created other pages in this same book in the past without issue, and there weren't any obvious red flags as I see it. The only external link would have been one transcluded from Template:Chess Opening Theory/Position. Then tried to report the filter false positive here (again, while not logged in) and hit the same filter, which absolutely should not happen. Finally made an account so I could report this false positive.

Thanks. I'm looking into it now. I added new filters yesterday to counter a spammer so trying to see which word or words tripped the filter.--Xania     talk 03:12, 6 November 2022 (UTC)
Can't figure out exactly what word tripped the filter so I have removed most of the changes I made yesterday. Should be OK now.--Xania     talk 03:42, 6 November 2022 (UTC)
Tried creating Chess Opening Theory/1. d4/1...d5/2. c4/2...c6/3. Nf3/3...Nf6/4. Nc3/4...a6/5. c5 again while logged out, copped a 6 hr block. Possibly related, and possibly not (I have no idea what the filter actually filters), I just realized even the links to Special:AbuseLog in Template:Falsepositive are tyechnically external links, maybe that's what done it earlier. Anyway, I reckon I'll edit logged in going forward. GoodLineBadLine (discusscontribs) 11:05, 6 November 2022 (UTC)
Unblocked that account. Sorry for the problems. That filter is just weeding out keywords related to recent spam and, I think, not targeting external links. I'll change some things.--Xania     talk 00:35, 7 November 2022 (UTC)

User:Lombard (filter log)
Description
I screwed up about the kind of page, that is to be moved, by keeping it in the user category of pages.
(The blame could be on creamless americano coffee with coffee blossom honey.)
The proper page is supposed to be Lombard if anyone would like to help me and Gat lombard (discuss · email · contribs · logs · count) with improving it.
