|This is one of the most heavily vandalized talk pages on the wiki.
If you remove the majority of text, or you add two or more external links to web pages offering erotic media, mobile phone accessories, or medications, you will be blocked.
This is your only warning.
I'd like to suggest setting the wiki to disallow editing without being logged in, since most of the spam appears to be coming from anonymous edits.

I myself have said the same thing numerous times, but alas, Caffeine doesn't wish to enable that. As long as there ones that are willing to constantly "delete/revert/delete/revert/delete/revert" etc..., I suppose that it's unnecassary then.

- Right now, we have a system where if an edit includes a link, it asks you to do something. It doesn't stop the random spam edits, though. The problem with something more intricate is that it would be annoying to people who are trying to be helpful. And yes, Caffeine has veoted the idea of forcing people to be logged in before, and will likely continue to do so... --Lardarse 14:17, 11 November 2007 (EST)
We rarely get links, so that part seems to be working. Is there a mediawiki extension that could detect the gibberish? It's not as simple to detect as links, but it is pretty consistent. Something like 7-14 characters added, usually containing a huge consonant cluster. This could eliminate most of the spam. --Colour Thief 18:44, 11 November 2007 (EST)
- I did try Bad Behavior, but then Digital said he could get on the wiki anymore, so I uninstalled it. Are there any alternatives? 126.96.36.199 09:36, 12 November 2007 (EST)
looking for an article on tetris
It talked about this guy and how he became a tetris champion. Very soulful. Talked about competition, gymnastics, his girlfriend, etc. Was in his uni website. Read it years ago. Unsigned comment
- Yeah, seems vaguely familiar... 188.8.131.52 17:20, 1 March 2009 (UTC)
