We need to deal with these spambots, if you encounter one, and find the page was created by a spambot, please copy and paste this: "{{deleted|it's a spambot page}}". We need the admins to actually delete these pages too. Anyone else have any suggestions on how we can clean up the mess, or flat out just prevent it from happening again?

IP bans should do it nicely. I cleaned up for today. Maybe we can have a {{spampage}} template? Also, remember the <nowiki></nowiki> tags for when you want to post text surrounded by {{curly braces}}. 64.5.15.136 01:38, 7 July 2007 (EDT)
Well, IP bans and requiring registration before you can edit. I'd register in a heartbeat if the spambots kept it up. Until then, I'm gonna make a new template for all this spam nuking. {{spampage}} (Oh yeah, I made this page somewhat easier to read.) 64.5.15.136 04:03, 7 July 2007 (EDT)
