Recent plague of spambots[edit]

Hey - Technical 13 suggested I bring this to your attention: User talk:Technical 13#Recent plague of spambots. Any chance we can shut the door on this? Don't know when it started, but it's only increasing recently. C-Hound (ContribsMessage) 16:35, February 3, 2020 (EST)

Hi C-Hound. I'm doing what I can. Unfortunately, wikis are open and prone to spambots. Even large projects, like the Wikipedias, are struggling with spambots, and they have some better tools than we do here (but not good enough). Recently, I've been going through the logs (usually) daily to block the underlying IPs and any extra accounts I find. (I found 77 unblocked accounts on one range today.) I suggest enabling the spamBlock gadget in your preferences for less clicking. — Zav 20:54, February 3, 2020 (EST)
In your efforts to clean up the spammers, there seems to be collateral damage to the Special:RecentChanges page that honest edits don't appear after redacting some things. Is there something we can do about that? SysteRn (ContribsMessage) 20:56, February 17, 2020 (EST)
