Dealing with wiki spam
As I'm sure you've noticed, this wiki seems to get a fair amount of spam. How can we deal with this? A quick google search turned up the following pages:
- Basic anti-spam features of mediawiki installations (a neat overview)
- More overview
- Several tips for stopping spam pages with divs
Do you think we could use any of these tips to cut down our spam count? For example, many of the spam pages seem to use the same div tag to prevent viewing of the 'edit' tab. Could we put this tag in our local settinsg spam regex?
I'm not sure if any sysops have time to work on this right now, but I thought I would start a page for discussion. Thanks for reading. --Culix 06:57, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
