XO Korea

What's up with XO Korea/business content and its many subpages? 19:01, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

This was all contributed by one of our great early contributors... it has definite utility, it just is an unfinished project... I think it's okay where it is (aside from the way it overweights use of the special:random page :) --Sj talk 10:19, 24 April 2008 (EDT)


Here's an edit I just reverted by user It was particularly egregious in that co-opted a redirect to the Main page.

Would such observations be best posted to OLPC_talk:Administrators or here? I also posted this to Leejc because I've seen that he takes a keen interest in such matters.

Two IPs listed on this page http://wiki.laptop.org/index.php?title=Talk:OLPC_Mongolia/Ulaanbaatar/index.php&action=history

should be looked into. The "index.php" part and posting to a talk page of an article that doesn't really exist at that location is a familiar pattern. Cjl 14:43, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

index.php and nastiness

maybe, maybe not

  • I'm really less than sure about this one, but it might merit a look by someone. Cjl
Pretty sure it was Chinese link spam; we've gotten similar before. Deleted, thanks! —Joe 00:07, 7 April 2008 (EDT)
That's what I thought too, it looked a lot like stuff in the delete logs from a while back. Cjl 00:54, 7 April 2008 (EDT)

nonsense added

Simply in need of guidance?

The content on Microprocessor definitely belongs over in User space, not Main. Is "Microprocessor" is too important a concept to leave this page alone? It reads more like someone in need of guidance and not necessarily a vandal, but the previous question remains to be answered. Cjl 15:09, 10 April 2008 (EDT)

You could leave the user a comment about moving it to user space; then if it hasn't happened after a while, to move it yourself with another note. Definitely guidance more than vandalism, when there's a question. --Sj talk 10:18, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

More index.php suspects

one-character vandals?

I caught a one-character typo vandal today, which reminded me a bit like a few other odd minor vandalism edits. I wonder if there are people sporadically testing this (and perhaps other popular) wikis, as a simpler version of the random-string spammers.. --Sj talk 10:16, 24 April 2008 (EDT)

user template

Note: you can use {{user|name/ip}} to get an easier-to-use rundown of a user's contribs.


Perhaps you could consider semi-protecting this page, no anonymous edits, I don't want to fight/lose an edit war with the page blanking bot that has a thing for this page. I can see no valid reason for blanking, it has i18n template info I'm interested in using at some point. Cjl 23:01, 5 May 2008 (EDT)
