Spam

Hi, how can I help you combat spam? --Marko (talk) 08:06, 6 January 2014 (UTC)

By convincing the LXDE people they need to start with a new installation of MediaWiki (the wiki system) and MySQL database - this one contains a lot of rubbish (deleted spam), making the search go very slow. Further, we need some anti-spam tools to be installed. It would be far easier to have FTP access, but I don't know if that's doable.
I am deleting the spam with a script for Actionaz. This is semi-automated. I use Multi Links to open 100's of tabs at the same time. Once they're loaded, I click run in Actionaz and the spam pages get removed. Some fail (for several reasons) to be deleted. These must be deleted manually. It does not take that long.
Since I am limited in my technical way of doing things (see above what I need), these days just consist of removing Spam. Since we don't have a unified logon system (for the German wiki, for example) I also have to login and logout several times for different wikis.
I assume you are running Linux, have a look here to download and install actionaz: http://actionaz.org
To obtain the script, you can contact me at any time: http://hugsmile.eu/en/contact
