Is en-SW really a direct successor for [http://scouting.wikia.com/ Scouting Wikia]? If yes, why isn't it completely run down and the users more efficiently redirected here? Has all the material been transferred here? --[[User:ZeiP|ZeiP]] 01:58, 11 September 2007 (CEST)
 
  
:Yes it has been all transferred here, and yes it is a successor for Scouting Wikia, or, well, at least, in my mind. But I haven't completely run down the scouting wikia because I thought as, as long as it wasn't "my" wiki and as I don't know the guy who created it, I couldn't blank all pages ... But maybe it would be a good idea to do so. I'm not sure.

There are currently quite many infinite blocks. I'm quite sure none of those actually need to infinite – the spammers don't probably even have the same IP any more, they've changed it a million times already for the blocks created on June. Some of the blocks even block creation of accounts!

So, we need to think about spam control. Spam control with the amount of spam we currently have here would be relatively easy if we had enough activity – however in the current situation in which most of the entries on [[Special:Recentchanges]] are blocks, deletions and reverts of spam, it just doesn't work.

We can't keep on giving those infinite blocks. Instead we need to figure out a decent duration after which the block expires – two weeks, month, two months — pretty much anything but infinite. Also, we need to think if we need to allow anonymous edits at all. It seems the only reasonable edits are done by logged-in users anyway, so I think it'd be a feasible option. --[[User:ZeiP|ZeiP]] 03:58, 17 November 2007 (EET)

I think that it would be good to block anonymous edits. I avoid giving infinite blocks, but all admins should do so. [[User:Juham|Juham]] 00:25, 3 December 1907 (EET)
