Kerbal Space Program Wiki:Fighting spam
There are two kind of spam with different approaches:
- Newly created pages
- Editing an existing article
After taking care of spam, please warn the spammer at their user talk page, or report them to a sysop if needed.
Spam pages or edits appear in the following forms:
- Spamming links to external websites
- Advertising or promoting
People spam wikis because they want to increase their result ranking on Google. MediaWiki software is coded to make spamming external links pointless.

Spammers should be warned with the appropriate template.
