The wiki

If you haven’t noticed, someone’s been spamming a few pages in the wiki, inserting links. It’s not that big of a deal yet, since spotting and removing them is rediciously easy, but is there a more permanent solution to this? I’m not schooled in the wonderful art of wiki-editing, so I wouldn’t know how this would work.

I don’t know how this can be dealt with, either. I haven’t noticed the spam yet, though—which pages were hit?

Just some random pages: the ruleset and a few ‘talk’-pages. The most recent changes to the wiki are tracked, so you can see the changes in the wiki.

I’m banning these users for several decades, and I think their IP addresses as well.
