    Default Who are the tech people around here? (Assistance requested)

    As TTE knows (since I've spoken to him regarding this before) I am currently developing a wiki for fanstuff using the same engine Bulbapedia uses.

    However, I'm having a bit of a crisis - false users (apparently bots, though I can't really say) are CONTINUALLY vandalizing my wiki with advertisements for Viagra, breast enhancement pills and other crap, and they're doing it at such a pace that it can't be stopped quickly enough. Witness here.

    I'm going to be totally honest - I have no clue how to handle this, and this part of the project was never mine to tech anyway. The person who agreed to work this angle apparently put some kind of blacklist measure in place but you can clearly see it's not helping.

    I apologize if this is inappropriate to bring up here but I am absolutely at the end of my rope. Therefore, I am requesting the temporary assistance of the people here, just until a solution to stop this is worked out.

    Help will be deeply appreciated.

    You're gonna wanna go into the backend and kill account creation, firstly, to stop the source. Secondly, you wanna kill all the accounts, and that's easy by blocking...

    After that it's kinda up to you... search the MediaWiki extensions.

    Okay, I think we figured out a fix...I don't think my guy on that end was on the same page I was... Apparently he never disabled unregistered posting, or something.

    I appreciate you helping me.
