Clarification of voter eligibility

In Wikipedia:Requests for adminship/TDKR Chicago 101 2 a vote was stricken. There are some uncertainty about whether it's an SUL or local account. I then propose that WP:CFD under who can vote to add the date of creation of named account should be based on the date of creation of an attached local account in this wiki. Ideas?--Cohaf (talk) 04:13, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Please conduct this discussion at Wikipedia talk:Criteria for adminship. That way, we'll have the record of it connected to the page that it affects. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:24, 21 January 2019 (UTC)
Not much of the community, save for the few who watch that page, will notice it there. I was under the impression that the purpose of ST was to conduct discussions like this for community consensus. Vermont (talk) 04:30, 21 January 2019 (UTC)

Can anyone help me check my AF log?

I triggered the abuse filter when trying to reverting another user's edit on Temperature,Filter description: ** vandalism.(I guess I cannot say the word before vandalism ?) Then every time I submit my edit I would encouter the warning and my autopromote is blocked. Pages include Hangzhou, Wikipedia:Simple talk and even my talkpage. Can anyone help me check the AF log ? I do not think I am doing something wrong. Thank you.--94rain Talk 01:22, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

@94rain: I'm reviewing the log now. This page also tracks change filter mistakes. Operator873talkconnect 01:40, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
@94rain: After review, most of your edits hit global filter 163. You'll need to go to meta to report issues with that because I can't even see those. The only time you hit local filters was using a word ( ** vandalism) which can easily be fixed. That filter shouldn't be an issue for your much longer. Again, as far as the global filter, I'm sorry, I can't help. The local filter, well.. avoid use of that word. Operator873talkconnect 01:53, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
@Operator873:Thank you. I will report it on meta then.--94rain Talk 02:04, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
