Got it.

The spam's here again. Seems it's being done daily at the same time, on yesterday the spam entries all being added at roughly similar time.

Any chances for a temporary ban from creating new accounts on the wiki until the spam attacks reduced?

I can't stop the creation of new accounts because they aren't just asfr wiki accounts: they're wikia/fandom accounts that work across all wikias.  

I did just ban the offending user and their IP address.  If it comes from different IP addresses each time, though, there's not a whole lot I can do.

Man, that wikia feature sure is disappointing. At this rate the wiki will keep infested with spam.

Edit: Some of the pages that have been deleted before seems re-appeared. Looks weird?

At the moment, I have removed 3 categories from the wiki ( DILF, MILF and Dude ).

http://asfr.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Categories
I can understand the category maker may want to further categorize the articles, although some of that are unneeded. From the looks of it, he intends to categorize depending on ASFR source ( e.g. Magic Spell), Age Group (e.g. Children, Teenagers), Roles (Villain, Protagonist etc) and ASFR Characteristics (Sleep, Merging etc).

Believe things above merits a discussion. Shall we keep it simple as before or further categorizing as such?

Anyway, I'm going to include Non-Human as a new categorize, primarily to replace the "Furry" section.

You can't really enforce not further categorizing short of deleting them so really it doesn't matter what we decide here, hence why I stopped policing it.

From the looks like it, some of the spams appear to be ISIS/Daesh stuff. I dunno how that ended up in a website that is NOT about religious extremism.

I banned the new source as well, but it really doesn't matter because i select "Ban IP" every time and they come back.

I looked and apparently there's a way to ask admins of the site to prevent most changes on the site, but our wiki technically breaks some Wikia rules by sharing images that are technically copyrighted material (manga pages, links to episodes, etc) so I don't think we're really in a position to argue.

Basically, what I'm saying is it's pretty much fucked.

EDIT:  NOW I've banned the correct person.  Sorry, Zirraku, copy and pasted the wrong name.

You can block anonymous posting, I've done it over on the Tuckerverse wiki, but I unfortunately do not remember exactly how.

Back from a long holiday. From the looks of it, seems the spam has gone?
