Why am I blocked by abuse filter?[edit]

I was just trying to add some Chinese names used by iQue in Super Mario Odyssey. Screenshots can be found here. I don't know why. I don't think your website doesn't like Chinese names.Xzonn (talk) 13:11, 16 May 2020 (UTC)

Names found in Super Mario Odyssey: 盔甲武士 (Meta Knight), 迪迪迪大王 (King Dedede), 华多鲁Dee (Waddle Dee). All three names are Simplified only. Traditional Chinese just used their English name.Xzonn (talk) 13:17, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
I'm sorry, I'm not sure why that would've happened. The mods have been informed and hopefully they'll work on that soon. In the meantime, I've added these to the pages in question in your stead. StrawberryChan (talk) 22:00, 16 May 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for your help, but I'm still blocked. Can you help to unblock me? I think that was because I was trying to add a reference link to the page, but MediaWiki thought I was trying to add ad links. Xzonn (talk) 01:06, 17 May 2020 (UTC)
I'll bring this to YoshiFlutterJump's attention. Results May Vary (talk) 17:17, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

So, turns out that this was some sort of automatic block I was able to remove manually. You should be able to edit now; if you're not, just let me know! --YFJ (talk · edits) 21:39, 17 May 2020 (UTC)

Thank you for unblocking me! Xzonn (talk) 06:53, 18 May 2020 (UTC)
Hey, I know this is a bit old, but to answer the original question, it looks like it's because the abuse filter autoblocks people if they have less than 10 edits and include both certain non-English characters (or a line break for some reason) and an external link in the same edit. It looks like you have 10+ edits now, so you should be fine. ---PinkYoshiFan 20:02, 27 May 2020 (UTC)
I see, thank you for telling me about it! Xzonn (talk) 02:23, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
