Terraria Wiki

The Terraria Wiki uses the Extension:AbuseFilter to automatically detect and prevent certain harmful edits. The most important filters used are listed here on this page. The abuse filter can be found at Special:AbuseFilter, but may only be modified by site administrators.

  • If you think you've received abuse filter warning(s) by mistake, or have further questions or concerns, please contact Mathmagician. However, this page should hopefully answer most questions.
  • All warning templates used with the abuse filter should be listed in Category:Abusefilter Templates.

Userpage Protection Filter

  • Prevents users from editing user pages that do not belong to them, as that is most often a form of vandalism.
  • If you have a legitimate reason to be editing another user's userpage(s), please contact an administrator and they will do it for you.
  • If you trigger this filter, your edit will be prevented and you may receive the following warning:
text
Terraria Wiki's abuse filter has prevented this edit. Please do not edit user pages that don't belong to you. If you require further assistance, please contact an administrator.

Page Blanking Filter

  • Prevents anons from blanking pages, which is a form of vandalism.
  • If you trigger this filter, your edit will be prevented and you may receive the following warning:
STOP!    Please do not blank pages!

Terraria Wiki's abuse filter has prevented this edit because it was identified as page blanking, a form of intentional vandalism. Please don't remove valid content from pages. Such vandalism will be quickly reverted, and continued attempts to vandalize the wiki will result in your account/ip being blocked from editing.

If you meant for this page to be deleted, blanking is not the right way to do this. Pages can only be deleted by administrators. The appropriate way to flag a page for deletion is to edit the page and copy/paste "{{delete|<insert reason here>}}" at the top of the page.

Profanity Filter

  • Prevents usage of profanity across the wiki. All profanity is forbidden, as this wiki is intended to be friendly towards audiences of all ages.
  • If you trigger this filter, your edit will be prevented and you may receive the following warning:
