The Idea & How It Works
Thanks for the idea, Canyonknight! Everyone is invited to post spamnicks here in the format of
to make it easy for the sysops to check if the suspicion is right.
This format results in a link where all contributions of that nick can be accessed easily: Hellwoofa
It is clear, that this is only a temporary solution, confer to the current discussion in the forums for a long term solution that is still to be found.
It would be nice if the wiki admins would check this site regularly and delete/block the listed spammers to support the people in their daily fight against spam!
I think it would be better to add to the wiki registration form an extra question eg. are u human )and for all other arch related sites which require registration) , just like i had the same idea for the forum and it seems to work fine.i havent noticed any spam from that point. Dolby
Blocked spam accounts should be deleted from time to time to keep everything neat here :)
