There isn't a topic on Scouting as such, because I'm not sure it would be within scope. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 23:35, 23 January 2019 (UTC)

Edit failed - disallowed words[edit]

Swept in from the pub

Just trying to edit hiking to slim it down a little and my edit appears to have failed for the following reason:

"This action has been automatically identified as harmful, and therefore disallowed. If you believe your action was constructive, please inform an administrator of what you were trying to do. A brief description of the abuse rule which your action matched is: Disallowed words"

I've reviewed my changes and nothing obvious stands out to me as a dodgy word - this is my first edit on Wikivoyage and I'm wondering if that has something to do with it instead?

This sometimes happens when those words were already in the article, before they were "forbidden", but noticed when you try to save your edit. I have not taken a look yet, but I hope the logs show what went wrong. Probably a new rule was made too strict by mistake. --LPfi (talk) 21:00, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
I did not really manage to check, so good if somebody else can take a look. --LPfi (talk) 21:50, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for the info. I've saved my intended edits locally so I'll check back in a day or so. Darren-M (talk) 21:56, 23 January 2019 (UTC)
