some quick help

Pedro Sanchez-2
Well, for the past month I've been cleaning up garbage and fighting
spambots on small wikis. The problem was that as soon as you deleted a
page, a bot would recreate next day.

Therefore, I've created "nospam" pages on many wikis, listing the most
created pages, and locking them agasint recreation.

Here are samples:
http://wo.wikiquote.org/wiki/Wikiquote:Nospam
http://vo.wikiquote.org/wiki/Wikiquote:Nospam
http://ast.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uiquipedia:Nospam

Some wikis already havesuch system, but they're few, so this is new
for most wikis.

I regularly check small wikis and update them. However, many sysops on
small wikis didn't know about cascade protections and that locking
system, so local sysops aren't updating  them adding new garbage
pages, as they don't know how they work.

So, I've decided to add a small line with instructions, as you can see
in the last 2 examples. I'd like to ask translators help me with
translations of that small line into other languages, so people get
aware what they have to do to mantain them and bot spam problem can be
kept at bay.


Thus, whoever has 30 seconds to spare, please add a new line into

http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Drini/nospam

so next time I travel wikis updating the content, transalted
instructions get added.

Have you proposed to the devs to implement this list in the software
so that it can be easier pass to any project/languages?

What I am thinking about is something like
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Spam_blacklist
(all project-wise) or something single project wise like
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Spam-blacklist

The page
http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Anti-vandalism_ideas
and the Wikitech-l mailing list seem good place where to discuss this
possibility.

All project already have local versions of the spam blacklist
that blocks additions of urls
but that doens't stop the index.php pages being created with garbage

a bug was submited to wikizilla requesting a locking page for all
wikis, but the developers marked it WONTFIX, which means, they're not
implementing it, threfore, I'll continue my manual system
