Do you think I could just leave this part blank and it'd be okay? We're just going to replace the whole thing with a header image anyway, right?

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

I disagree renaming "Smilies" to "Smiley" or "Auras" to "Aura", just make a redirect that redirects to the plural form so you don't need to type [[auras|aura]] and just [[aura]].

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

That's ridiculous, now people have to click on more links just to find the information they need. If anything it should be "Auras" redirecting to "Aura".

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

They don't have to click on more links. It redirects them AUTOMATICALLY.

No it doesn't. And even if it did redirects get annoying.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

Yes it does. How does it "get annoying" if it redirects you automatically? That's like saying a page is annoying.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

1) it doesn't redirect automatically
2) if it did there would be a delay and it would use up more resources (forcing the user to download more pages)

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

It redirects automatically and silently. The wiki checks for redirects before giving the page to users.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

It doesn't redirect me?? I've tried on desktop and mobile browser (albeit both were chrome) no redirects.

Maybe you were opening the redirect page itself? You have to click on the redirect link on a page.

Different55, perhaps you could delete all the "Mr. [inserthere]" pages since we have "Mr[inserthere]" now?

Sure thing, bobby.

Maybe I'll have to disallow page creation by guests. :/

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

I've seen these types of attacks before. They're adbots that attack websites that are not protected well and/or log-in with ease.
They spam advertisements. Seriously, who the hell would listen to those ads LOL

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

UGH GEEZ FINE I'LL DO SOMETHING.

EDIT: Okay, I managed to block them from my phone but now I have a computer so THE SPAMBOTS SHALL FEEL MY WRATH right after I find a spam-deleting extension. The Nuke extension looks good.

EDIT2: The first 1000 pages have been deleted, but there are more. ;_;

EDIT3: All gone. Users who haven't signed in with their forum accounts now have their rights very limited to prevent spam.

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

More admins is never the answer to spambots. The answer to spambots is to prevent them from ever getting in. Adding more admins for spambots is nothing but an excellent way to burn out a lot of people.

I'm not talking about just spambots. I'm talking about the entire Wiki in general, that I could help with things and stuff...

Re: Official Opening of EEWiki

What exactly needs to be done that requires an admin? The only time I've stretched my modly hand forth upon the wiki (wow that sounded... idk, like something) has been that stupid spambot and maybe yesterday I was moving Mister X pages around on top of other Mister X pages, and those aren't exactly overwhelming me and they aren't very time-sensitive either.
Well, the spambot was a little time sensitive but that shouldn't ever happen again anyway.
