Edit detected as spam, blocking an update on https://developer
What did you do? ================ 1. Went on https://developer.mozilla.org/fr/docs/Web/CSS/linear-gradient$edit to update the fr version of the article 2. Modified the content and tags accordingly 3. Saved What happened? ============== I received a warning box and Akismet added two spam attempts for this edits. What should have happened? ========================== As the content I've added seems to suit MDN guidelines, the save should have worked :( Is there anything else we should know? ====================================== I marked the spam attempts as ham in the panel and tried several times without any luck. The content I'm trying to save is here: https://pastebin.mozilla.org/8872420
You know, I wish we could see an explanation for why an edit was rejected. Is that possible?
Thanks John, https://developer.mozilla.org/fr/docs/Web/CSS/linear-gradient$revision/1062828 is OK. Should I close the bug for now or do you want to analyze something else?
(Forgot to clear the ni)
Our Akismet representative is working on decreasing the time from training on Ham to similar edits being allowed. I'm following up via email, but the site has had a smaller number of blocked edits (ham and spam) and missed spam since then. This is good for MDN, bad for debugging. Closing this bug, since the immediate issue is resolved. I'll continue monitoring blocked ham with the Akismet rep.
