Spamming

Hey, theres a spammer/bot that keeps posting irrelevant pages. If you could IP block, .htacces deny a few ranges, or something of that nature it would help. I'm currently doing my best to blank pages that are posted from the spammers but it's not really working. I figured you had access to those sorts of things since your the server expert.

IP block is not currently working. So yeah, we're just having to do it piece by piece until it's working, sorry for inconvenience! Also, can you not blank a page that previously had content on (ie: Main page talk), an undo is fine for that sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 20:09, 11 March 2011 (PST)
Oh, I apologize, but I do believe that it had been previously blanked when the spammer posted to it, I could be wrong about that though. If I may suggest, editing the .htaccess file, if that hasn't been tried already, but it is also possible the bot/spammer has either a dynamic IP, or there is multiple bots.
Yeah, the spammer replaced all the text, but an undo should've reverted it back to the previous form. I sorted it out, and it's not a big deal, but these little bastards are going to keep annoying us until it gets sorted. And when Malechite gets online, he'll sort it all (I'm only an admin, can't fix such things) sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 20:17, 11 March 2011 (PST)
Yeah, I broke all of the anti-spam stuff when i upgraded to the latest mediawiki, so i've got to redo it. I added blacklists today, but i guess they didnt take. -Malechite 22:55, 11 March 2011 (PST)
