These four look like spam to me.  I figured it best to leave them alone and just report them.  Regular members don't seem to be able to delete pages (not that we need to).

Thanks!

Why did the phrase "Spam on the Wiki" remind me of John Mellencamp's Rain on the Scarecrow?

I got it too writing it.  I just couldn't come up with the rest of the song to go with it.

Cheeky bastards. They log in here, surely that gives us their IP address?

If the IP addresses are being logged they could be traced back to the host ISP, who could then punish the offender. Possibly. They're probably going through at least one proxy, making it considerably hard to track them down.

I guess, in the end, the frequency with which they're hitting the forums might be a sign of how popular they are. Sure, putting their spam into the Wiki isn't the smartest idea as they're not nearly as frequented as the forums, but we won't tell them that Wink

Thanks guys! All the offending posts have been deleted and all the offending users have been banned.

We really appreciate the effort, and would love for you guys to keep it up - we can't be everywhere, after all, so it's extremely helpful to have the extra sets of eyes. Smiley

Well I don't want to spoil the fun here, but according to FC one can only have extra legs and arms, not eyes.
So post a new feat or forget about it. Grin

I thought about it, but I don't think the feat really has enough of a bonus to merit a drawback. If you could think of another bonus to balance out the AH, then by all means.
