In trying to wander the maze of adding G2 or edonkey why o why isnt there a wizard [in my dreams]. Just musing.

Regular vandalism

I've had to clean up Wiki vandalizing bots numerous times, and I doubt it'll stop unless something is done to prevent them from working here... the EASIEST way would be to have any new accounts have a 1 hour "cooldown" time where the user is notified that it'll be X minutes until they can post, in order to stop rampant automated vandalism for page rank... Also nice would be a way to revert all edits by somebody (If they're adding random sex and pharmaceutical links to one page, I doubt they'll be adding useful contribution to anything else). While I'm doing random christmas lists (Hey, 'tis the season, just a tad late!), I'd like to be able to stab them in the face over the internet. I'm aware that last one is quite difficult, so I understand if you pass on trying it. Still, even if the first two ideas are rejected for whatever reason, SOME measure would be nice... --FrYGuY 03:29, 28 December 2005 (CST)

I don't really want to take on the job of developing Mediawiki. That's their job. I installed the SpamBlacklist extension but that doesn't seem to catch all of it. Any suggestions you have on taming the spam should be directed to the Mediawiki developers. Also these links are useless for spammers and quite harmless. Many search engines now respect the "nofollow" attribute which is attached to all external links. If there's any other features I can install or enable then please let me know. --Dcat 16:24, 28 December 2005 (CST)

That's understandable... At least being an admin with the power to ban them would be nice, or at least seeing them get banned by somebody who IS an admin... wink wink nudge nudge... FrYGuY 02:56, 29 December 2005 (CST)

I took another look through all the available settings and found a rate limiting feature. Different categories of users can be limited to X edits in Y amount of seconds. One of the groups is called "newbie" which is apparently any account that was created recently. I set it to 1 edit per 120 seconds. We'll see what happens. --Dcat 20:40, 5 January 2006 (CST)

Awesome! I also see I am now a sysop, which means I can delete all the spammed talk pages flat out, and ban the spammers too. At least I'll be less frustrated, being able to ban the spammers... ban ban ban the spammers! Wee! -FrYGuY 10:56, 16 January 2006 (CST)
