Kerbal Space Program Wiki:Fighting spam
If you spot spam in articles please undo them, mark spam pages as unwanted, warn the spammer, and report them to sysops 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.

Remove spam the same way you would do with vandalism.
There are two kinds of spam with different approaches:
- Newly created pages
- Editing an existing article
Warning the spammer
