At the Justin Bieber answers site, we need urgent help. We need to blacklist words related to personal information (and other stuff). How can be do this? MediaWiki:BadWords is not helping us. I-20the highway 19:59, September 1, 2010 (UTC)

Well, the spam blacklist only works in links AFAIK, you may need to ask Special:Contact. --Pcj (TC) 20:13, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
w:c:justinbieber.answers:MediaWiki:TitleBlacklist — see w:c:joeyaa:MediaWiki:TitleBlacklist for an example. Joey (talk) 23:40, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
Hmm, I thought TitleBlacklist only blocked those words in page titles? --Pcj (TC) 23:49, September 1, 2010 (UTC)
It does, but that's the most efficient filter you can have at the local level currently. Doing words in answers would require wikia's Phalanx, which isn't/can't be used locally. Joey (talk) 00:04, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
That's what I thought. --Pcj (TC) 00:05, September 2, 2010 (UTC)
