    bot called teclassicbagsoutlet screwing around with the wiki?

    Some recent changes to the wiki don't appear to be legitimate...

    I guess the account name is Widoes7232 or something, advertising teclassicbagsoutlet.com

    Hmmm, yeah. Unfortunately it seems that I myself can't do anything about that. Hopefully Kyle or someone can get on it.

    Thanks for bring it to our attention! We'll look in to it, clean it up, and ban them.

    Good job getting rid of the old bot, but there is another one that Kyle failed to block, only deleted one page:

    There are now literally millions of pages, additions, and edits from inumerable accounts that are all named with bunches of random characters!

    I used to like to check the wiki from time to time, to see what is new, but that is made impossible by all the bot activity. Perhaps you need to write a script that will collect all the editors names, allowing a human being to do wildcard deletions, blocks, and bans. Maybe a captcha or something to stop bots from creating new accounts?

    If nobody else cares about this I will stop posting about it and just quit thinking about the wiki. It seems like it could become something useful if it is managed and maintained.

    The Wiki is really important to us! Thank you for bringing this to our attention again.

    We're in the process of cleaning it up and making it more bot-proof!
