Title: Wiki spam
Post by: AkuAkane on February 14, 2016, 12:00:25 am
Checked the wiki just now and I had to refresh multiple times to get in and when I did I saw this...
Looks like multiple "users" are numbers? lol
I figure you guys have already noticed, but if not here's a heads up and I hope you guys can get the situation under control.

Unrelated thing that I didn't want to make a whole thread for:
So the place I get my CG cards from posted this
It seems legit, but I've never seen a card just straight up labeled "event". Anyone know what's up with this? Would like to confirm it's actually legit before I go putting it on the wiki.

I've never seen one labeled event either, so... Idk??? I wouldn't add it until we can figure out what it is.

We did have a problem with spam like a while ago but it straightened itself out. However, as you can probably remember there's been a rash of random spam signups who never edit and are eventually culled... But apparently the spam filter isn't working anymore.

Honestly I think we need more wiki admins because when there's a problem (like the "Gracie" user that was adding completely false things to articles dozens of times a day) it takes a few days to resolve. And no one can be on as an admin 24/7... I hope this doesn't come out as pretentious or implying that the current admin aren't doing their jobs or something, I tried to think of a way to word it. I think it's just one or two people spread too thin.
