Fun fact: about 5,000 spambots were registered, all from China.

Right, so the antispam extension that was used was cracked by spambots and that's probably on me for using stupid questions as well as not using REcaptcha. A REcaptcha has been put up on the registration page and a DNS blacklist has been set up to block known spammers from registering and editing.

To deal with the issue of collateral damage already caused, the wiki is being nuked.

If you registered on the wiki within the last 7 days, you were probably nuked and had your edits reverted and have been blocked. PM me your wiki username if you've been blocked to be unblocked.

Unfortunately the spambots are still coming back. The wiki has been put behind CloudFlare and is now using Bad Behavior/Project Honeypot to catch suspicious traffic. If it continues, registrations will be disabled and we'll revert to the "editor requests only" model.

Disabled RDNS checks for open proxies. Hopefully you haven't been flagged as a forum spammer either.
