I have been finding alot of spam entries. How can I delete them or have them flagged to be deleted?

There isn't really a way to flag pages that I know of, but I can make it a point to go through and start attacking some of the spam. Thanks for the heads-up.

Actually, I believe Kri was going to add a Category that can be added to pages to flag them as spam. I'll have to ask her about it.

Anyway, I went ahead and just deleted 125 spam entries. I'll do more when I have more time.

Where are you finding them? There haven't been any major blocks of spam in the Recent Changes that I've seen recently. Granted, I haven't been on as much as I used to be, but the only other way I know how to locate spam pages is keep hitting Random Page until I get one. If there's a better way to locate them, I can easily help with spam-killing. That was almost a part-time job back in the day.

I just go into the toolbox and select the dead-end pages category (pages that don't link to anything else within the Geddon). The pages are usally very obviously named, such as a username with three numbers at the end, or some stupid advertisement line. Then I just open a bunch in new tabs, and go down the line deleting them. I haven't been banning the spam accounts, just deleting the content.

Tulio, pages that need to be deleted may now be flagged as such by adding [[Category:delete]] <blockquote>'''COMMENTS'''</blockquote> to the page, with the "comments" section being replaced with a brief explanation of why the page requires deletion.

I would like to make a wiki page for our new realm, the instructions say to go to "new_page" and click edit, but the "new_page" page has been deleted. How can I make a new page now?

The easiest way is to search for the name of your page, spelled exactly how you want it. It will tell you that page doesn't exist, and will give you the option to create it.

Haven't been doing a heck of a lot recently, but I have:

  • Deleted more spam from the wiki (just a bunch of old stuff from, like, 2012)
  • Added more realms to the realm map (/confetti)
  • Condensed some more events on the "Events" page on the Geddon.

Not a terribly long list, but progress is progress!
