Tetris Wiki
This is one of the most heavily vandalized talk pages on the wiki.

If you remove the majority of text, or you add two or more external links to web pages offering erotic media, mobile phone accessories, or medications, you will be blocked.

This is your only warning.

Anti-spam suggestions

I'd like to suggest setting the wiki to disallow editing without being logged in, since most of the spam appears to be coming from anonymous edits.

As for the spambots that do manage to create accounts, I've found a reCAPTCHA MediaWiki extention that might help. --Poochy 21:36, 10 November 2007 (EST)

I myself have said the same thing numerous times, but alas, Caffeine doesn't wish to enable that. As long as there ones that are willing to constantly "delete/revert/delete/revert/delete/revert" etc..., I suppose that it's unnecassary then.

Right now, we have a system where if an edit includes a link, it asks you to do something. It doesn't stop the random spam edits, though. The problem with something more intricate is that it would be annoying to people who are trying to be helpful. And yes, Caffeine has veoted the idea of forcing people to be logged in before, and will likely continue to do so... --Lardarse 14:17, 11 November 2007 (EST)

We rarely get links, so that part seems to be working. Is there a mediawiki extension that could detect the gibberish? It's not as simple to detect as links, but it is pretty consistent. Something like 7-14 characters added, usually containing a huge consonant cluster. This could eliminate most of the spam. --Colour Thief 18:44, 11 November 2007 (EST)

Might Bad Behavior help? --tepples 21:53, 11 November 2007 (EST)
I did try Bad Behavior, but then Digital said he could get on the wiki anymore, so I uninstalled it. Are there any alternatives? 09:36, 12 November 2007 (EST)

looking for an article on tetris

It talked about this guy and how he became a tetris champion. Very soulful. Talked about competition, gymnastics, his girlfriend, etc. Was in his uni website. Read it years ago. Unsigned comment

Yeah, seems vaguely familiar... 17:20, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

--Wormeyman 04:16, 18 May 2009 (UTC) So can we get this page protected please! http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Administrators#Protections

Granted --Nicholas 12:25, 7 June 2009 (UTC)


remove the wikianswers widget, it's usually questions which aren't relevant to any wiki. Lying 18:20, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

We can't, it is on there by default. However, you can remove it for yourself if you are logged in. The MarioGalaxy2433g5 {talk/contribs/Logs} 16:16, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Questions not related to this wiki have now been removed. Once people ask Tetris questions, they will show up in the widget, which users can choose from their widget dashboard (linked from your user page). Angela (talk) 16:59, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure you can remove it, or is it a person by person thing? I was pretty sure it is an admin tool that can be removed. I am an admin at the zOMG one and removed it there. Lying 17:49, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
