Hey Kasper, just wanted to give you a heads-up on the spam bot situation. I've been bugging Umbral about this and he's been awesome about banning these spambot accounts, but I figure you're probably in a position to do more about this than he is.

This account is new, has not been banned and also has a (blanked & delisted) spam page hanging out:

These are the accounts that have been banned but still have spam pages hanging out (I've blanked the content on these pages and delisted them from search engines):

These accounts have been banned and all of their spam pages have been deleted:

The spamming started on the 17th of January at 08:23 (server time) with User:Pk969837, and the most recent spam page I see was created by ‎User:Dkattyperry on the 18th of January at 20:36, so this has been going on for over 36 hours now. In total, it looks like they've created 295 spam pages, and we've deleted 36 of the pages so far. I believe that I have blanked and delisted all of the pages that have yet to be deleted, though I did just find some that I had missed when I looked at Quick14's contribution list.

I suggested to Umbral that we may need additional spam restrictions, especially for new accounts since that seems to be the new strategy here. For example, after all the other spam accounts got banned, Dkattyperry was created and started making more spam. I'm not really sure what our options are at the moment, but I figure you're probably in a better position to make that call than me or Umbral are. -Kerbolnaut (talk) 22:15, 18 January 2016 (UTC)

I suggest some kind of questions about the game for allowing the creation of new account. For example: "What is the name of the fourth planet from Kerbol?" NWM (talk) 15:56, 19 January 2016 (UTC)
