Spammer attacking our wiki data base.

Recommended Posts

I deleted the tickets, BTW.

Someone should also delete these users: clouchip butoijoh wecliapr .

Deleted them (and a couple of others as well, though we probably should do a real purge some time. I would imagine say 90% of the users are fake/spammers.).

(I also removed the images from Lion's posts, image searching is starting to become good enough for it to be a possible issue - we don't want to get linked with these things at all. Though come to think of it the second post could probably have staid, not really important though. Just thought I should mention that I removed them so no one wonders where they're gone :) )

Fighting spammers is a never-ending battle, sad to say.

Yeah but we need can reacting in time. A fortunately we can back to the changes. But I fear they erase important info.

I bet most of those users are just inactive, maybe - if you do a purge - send them an email that they need to reconfirm their account within x months.

Plz don't. This will likely not prohibit any spammer activity because they likely generate a new account and then directly act. It will however annoy sanely acting members after a longer absence.

If it's really helping, well, OK. But AFAIK it will not.

How about a invisible block? => spammers are still able to create tickets, but the tickets never show up and get lost immediately.

When reported the spammer gets an invisible block. Invisible so they can access their accounts and create tickets, but those tickets aren't saved.

interesting and about clons? They can crate a massive id. I think, and when game be more popular this think can be worst.
