# General Wiki Announcements can misbehave because spaces

Reported by: Owned by: Vlad-Mihai Sima normal AnnouncerPlugin minor

### Description

If in the "Preference" > "Announcements" > "General Wiki Announcements" edit box you type something like "* <enter>" (notice the space), there will be nothing matched.

This can be very frustrating and no obvious for users. I would suggest either use strip function on each line, some kind of warning, or a partial list of matched wiki pages. Anything that would hint about what is the problem when you do not receive emails.

GeneralWikiSubscriber has the following issues.

1. The prefs panel says Each page should be on a separate line. If enter SandBox and SandBox/* with newline and edit SandBox page, but it never notify. We should use splitlines() instead of split(' ').
2. If using meta characters as re in prefs, it would lead error: unexpected end of regular expression on re.match().
3. If enter Sand and edit SandBox page, it wrongly notify.
