Dealing with wiki spam
Sorry to bother you on your userpage, but Hydrargyrum and I were wondering if we could get some help deleting spam pages. We have tried to mark many of the spam pages with the <nowiki>Dear admin: please delete this page.</nowiki> template and/or the Category:Requests for Deletion category so they can be easily found. Would it be possible to get a sysop such as yourself to delete some of these pages?
I'm not sure if there is a good way to prevent this spam from happening. I started a discussion on the Community Portal page in case that helps. Would it be possible to try any of those anti-spam measures? Do we use any of them already?
Thanks for your time! --Culix 07:00, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Wow, thank you very much for the trust and access! I am humbled and honoured. I will try to clean up a few things here, starting with those spam pages. I am out of town this weekend but will see what I can do next week. Thanks again! --Culix 13:06, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Hey Gistbane, thanks for getting the wiki back up and running! :) I made a post on the Community Portal about Autoconfirmed users. Do you think it would be worth trying something like that? --Culix 07:48, 8 March 2010 (UTC)
