Spam bot invasion

Fragment of a discussion from User talk:Skilgannon
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An admin can mass-cleanup the spam by using Special:Nuke on suspicious users from Special:ActiveUsers, as well as suspicious edits from Special:RecentChanges.

In the light of this, I would like to nominate User:Beaming and User:Cb for admin rights.

Skilgannon's email can be found in Contacts.

More discussion on this attack can be found here and here.

More suggestions:

  • IP-ban these bozos.
  • Do some of the stuff mentioned here.
  • Merge all spam accounts together so we can keep track of them more easily.
  • Delete/hide spam entries from Special:RecentChanges.

I also nominating User:MultiplyByZer0 because of active presence at wiki and a lot of clean up effort coming from this user.
