I don't know where this text goes, so it's going here...

List of things to know about:

  • A Spambot template has been created for user pages. These users need sorting out: spambots
  • Anti-spam Features discusses things that could be done (an upgrade would be a good start). eg.:
  • All external linking could be disabled (apparently with "$wgUrlProtocols = '$^';"), and offsite links could be limited to what can be expressed as an InterWiki link. This is extremely limiting, and requires that somebody be available to add InterWiki sites as necessary, but it doesn't involve an upgrade. It would also break many existing pages, so these would need to be found and fixed. Many links could already be turned to InterWiki syntax.
  • Google does appear to index previous versions of pages here, which means that reverts are only partially useful. I think the NoIndexHistory point above should be applied to fix that.
  • AntiSpamRecommendations
  • OpenWiki:NoSpamMessage
