SHR manual: link to simple-agent

Hi! Thanks for updating the SHR Manual! Great job!

I just noticed that you pointed out problems with the download of simple-agent. I tried the download link at this page and it's working fine for me - So I have removed your notice about an incorrect link. Furthermore I have added another link to a download from So I think we could delete the page simple-agent again. Is that okay for you ? --Marko Knöbl 13:39, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Hi Marko, yes, it seems to work now, when i tried last night the page didn't exist. Yes, simple-agent page can be deleted :) --Vanous 13:44, 21 February 2010 (UTC)

Countless spam

Hi! Please do something against this countless spam attacks. I have already marked a lot pages as spam (cleared content), that spammer Marshall Nielsen may require your attention. :) --Quix0r 09:13, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

see my reply: --vanous 13:39, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
more spam to delete and accounts to block: and it is good to have you back. :) --Quix0r 13:43, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
i have been travelling and day job overloaded a bit, i am cleaning the mess little by little... thank you for your spam cleaning!--vanous 11:13, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Can you please check if all spambots are blocked? --Quix0r 00:08, 29 September 2011 (UTC)
I have looked around, but understand that to block, i would need further permitions. I don't know the MW very well, so perhaps i have missed something obvious...? I block the spammers by name, but ofcourse this doesn't help much, as it is all automated... --vanous 18:45, 30 September 2011 (UTC)

Combat web-spam

Please try to make an account on this wiki to see how they combat webspam:

I assume that after a few anti-web-spams the "are you human"-tests stops.
I think it is Esden that has implemented it.
Please tell the other web-administrators and web-maintainers/developers about it.

    • (re)captcha is one of the ways to go, but it requires admin access... i will try to email the admin. --vanous 08:58, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi Vanous

Please forward this information to the admin:

--Glenn 10:06, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

I'm dependent on Tor. :'( --Spdel 10:16, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
I am pretty sure that exceptions can be made for registered users. And many thanks for your anti-spam effort. ;-) --Glenn 10:21, 20 November 2011 (UTC)
OK. I'm relieved to hear that. :-) --Spdel 10:26, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

I am planing to write a perl boot with MediaWiki::Bot but I need to know if the the edit api can be enabled or if I should investigate other modules as I'm tired of cuting & pasting { { spam } } { { delete-sp } } jluis

Good idea. I think most of spam can reliably detected. --Spdel 14:19, 7 February 2012 (UTC)
most of the new pages enter in this concept and edits to main:fi :) jluis
This sounds great. You need to contact the server admins for access...--vanous 18:46, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

User rights

thx. It's an honour for me. :-) It works.

Can the list of 'recent changes' cleaned too? --Spdel 20:25, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

I don't know how :( , i tried to add myself also the bot permissions, but still i don't know how to clean the recent changes...--vanous 21:33, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

User rights are sufficient for me. But I don't know what is needed for jluis bot. --Spdel 20:50, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

i have no experiences with the media wiki, so i don't know. yesterday, i finally cleaned all pages marked as for deletion, fortunately i found xdotool that helped me to generate all the hundreds (even thousands) of clicks and page moves, it still took some time, but was rather fast... . i am sure mediawiki can do all the blocking etc... we can contact the admins and get permissions needed, let me know what is required.--vanous 21:33, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Nice tool. Didn't know this.
I noticed your speed and wondered how. :-)
By the next spam-flood I start to understand, how to use this tool, at the latest. :-)
Should I leave spam-users unblocked and only block users with more than one spam-edit?
Maybe this would make it a little bit harder for spam-bots.
It's no problem for me. I have the time. :-)
Is the right for (manual) spam-cleaning given to jluis already?
So we can complete us. One for day-time, one for night.
(Until the anti-spam-bot is running) :-)

I found out; edits are automatically marked as bot-edit and not listed in 'recent changes' (by default) if you are a member of 'Bot'. --Spdel 02:30, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

This is great, i have created a -cleaner account too, to ensure logs are clean i can still do regular edits if i find the time...--Vanous-cleaner 08:47, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

And spam-revisions can deleted:

  • Delete Page
  • Restore
  • Select only revisions to restore
  • Restore
  • Reload History (CTRL+SHIFT+R or empty cache)

--Spdel 02:30, 9 February 2012 (UTC)

Cool, thank you! --vanous 08:05, 10 February 2012 (UTC)

Blbej dotaz ke spamu

Nestačila by dát jen na stránku s vytvořením nového učtu věta do formuláře: Jaké je jméno zakladatele Openmoko? --Kukide 18:48, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

 (Machine) translation:
 Stupid question to spam
 Enough to give only the page with the creation of new account forms the sentence:
 'What is the name of the founder of Openmoko?'
 --Kukide 18:48, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

asi jo, chceš to provést? --vanous 21:34, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
