Easy list whitelist

RhinosF1 Wikipedia
Hi,
Could someone please see if WMF wikis could be whitelisted as a follow up
to
https://github.com/easylist/easylist/issues/3188?

Despite the short term distruption, Could it be placed on Tech News as
users were noticing that some pages were blocked?

Thanks,
RhinosF1

What does that mean? Whitelisting what exactly? Where? Please include
sufficient context to allow folks on this list to understand relevance.

See https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News for "Inclusion criteria"
under "Get started". Obviously I have no idea what "Easy List" is.

Cheers,

Easy List seems to be one of the component in various adblocker tools
(possibly enabled by default in some or all of them?). https://easylist.to/
E.g. the "uBlock Origin" extension's settings panel which lists it,
apparently enabled by default:

I've submitted a pull-request at
https://github.com/easylist/easylist/pull/3190
(and +1 to the "please include sufficient context" note :)

Re: Easy list whitelist

RhinosF1 Wikipedia
Hi,
Thanks to Nick for the PR.

As far as I understand, Easy list is some sort of ad blocking system that
multiple ad blockers use.

From what I can see, Wiktionary got caught up in a block on URLs ending in
/ads and /advert making some pages blank. It's best to read the Tech IRC
log from 4pm onwards to get the idea.

I'll have a look at Tech News. I'm happy to write a proper report on what
happened if necessary. Where you would suggest posting it? I can't use
Wikitech due to Account Creation block.

Thanks,
RhinosF1

Re: Easy list whitelist

Nick Wilson (Quiddity)
Hi RhinosF1,
It was only a single webpage that was reported as being blocked by the
browser extension (although there were presumably other pages and wikis
affected that went unreported in the past), thus it is probably not of
great concern to our thousands of contributors who read the short Tech News
newsletter. We try to keep the newsletter short and focused on important
items of widespread interest, both for ease of translation and so that
people read it in full each week. You can read details about what normally
gets included at https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/News/For_contributors
Cheers,

Re: Easy list whitelist

RhinosF1 Wikipedia
Hi Nick,

Thanks for the Clarification, From what I know, the issue was present for
about 10 hours. I'm not sure how widespread the impact was page wise. Is it
worth summarising what happened anywhere else?

Thanks,
RhinosF1

Re: Easy list whitelist

RhinosF1 Wikipedia
Based on -tech IRC discussion, I'm summing this up @
https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Tech/20190404-Adblock-issue given WikiTech
is currently Account creation locked.
