wiki spam?
« on: January 07, 2010, 11:29:06 PM »
Sorry if this is the wrong place to post...

Someone has spammed the wiki in a way that I don't know how to erase.  They've created a file called "tocright" which is linked at the top of some prominent wiki pages, and displays a bunch of spam links.  When I search for that term, I find:

 Page text matches

    * Alliance List
      {{tocright}}
      2 KB (356 words) - 22:45, 7 January 2010
    * Interface
      {{tocright}}
      12 KB (1925 words) - 22:45, 7 January 2010
    * Starfleet Universe
      {{tocright}}
      22 KB (3555 words) - 15:57, 6 January 2010
    * Community
      {{tocright}}
      4 KB (691 words) - 07:01, 7 January 2010

Also, I can't send a direct request to BFG because bluefroggaming.com is blocked from my workplace.  :(

All you should have to do it click 'edit' on each page and remove the [[tocright]].  I did it on the Alliance page and it seemed to remove it without any other lasting effects.

EDIT: Got em all that I'm aware of.  Oh the joys of being a registered user of Wiki.

Ah, thanks.  I was searching for a way to remove the tocright file itself, but couldn't figure out how to.
