What was the original anti-spam system in place for unregistered users to edit pages? did they have to answer some math question? Anwyways, I've replaced it with a word question. Maybe that will work.

Thanks for bringing the spamming to my attention. I'm not exactly sure how to resolve it, but I think I know how. I'm quite busy these days but I'll try to find a solution. --Veneficus 00:43, 29 March 2011 (EDT)

Hey thanks for contacting. I'm aware that a lot has changed in HOA. Unfortunately, I've stopped playing for a while now, and I don't think I have the time to get back into it in the foreseeable future. -Veneficus 19:15, 11 January 2011 (EST)

Great to hear from you! I was wondering whether you will keep on maintaining the Majesty Palace site and - more importantly ;) - the Wiki even when not playing anymore. Also I (we?) could use your insight in how to manage the update process. How to see/show whether a page is actualised, for example. - Xalaz 02:52, 12 January 2011 (EST)

Due to the recent wave of spammers, I've made you Sysop to help clear out spammers. Thanks! --Veneficus 21:49, 30 August 2007 (EDT)

Spammers have been pretty busy lately. Any rules you want enforced? Like one spam = infinite block?
BTW: I get an error message after blocking someone, saying I do not have permission for the current action. At that moment, I am logged out according to the screen, but after following a link to another page, I am logged back in. And the block still happens. --Xalaz 10:05, 9 November 2007 (EST)
I would say that one spam = infinite block for registered users and finite block for IPs. And one more idea - maybe if a given page is spammed more then n times then it should be put on (full) protection for some time?
I'm also experiencing this problem with blocking - I'm getting the message that I'm not permitted to block a user, but if I try it again then I can see message saying that user was already blocked. Sir Dagon 17:54, 13 November 2007 (EST)
I'm guessing we're not allowed to see the list of blocked IPs/users. It's not really important as the block works. I'll start using one month blocks for IPs.
So far I've not really seen a lot of page specific spams. Seems pretty random. Protecting a page comes at the cost of real contributors, off course. But they can ask one of us to unprotect it. Seems we're online often enough ;-)
Anyway, I think the 'n' should depend on the type of page. A main page can be protected after two or three spams in a short while. 'research needed' pages should only be protected as a last resort (imho). --Xalaz 11:59, 14 November 2007 (EST)
I suppose you are right. I was wondering why there is no 'users creation' log... there probably is one, but I can't see it for the same reason I can't see IPs/users list ;)
It seems that HoAWiki:About and category pages are most popular with spambots... I wouldn't put categories even on partial protect but, I would consider protecting HoAWiki:About, mainpage and maybe some 'meta' pages - at least for the time being... Sir Dagon 18:38, 16 November 2007 (EST)


Hey, I'm new to the wiki and I would like to help out and make it better. I'm basically doing busy work now, ease-of-use improvements, redirects, and corrections; if you need me to work on anything that is missing, something that would actually require research or writing, just let me know, I'm familiar with the wiki format and I would be able to improve this wiki greatly, thanks!

Hey, since I don't have the power to actually delete the Spam pages myself, I'm just going to throw all the new ones into the Spam category page until you return, thanks!
