Just making the red link go away.

Please watch Explain XKCD:Community portal/Administrators' noticeboard

I'd like to ask that the admins consider adding Explain XKCD:Community portal/Administrators' noticeboard to their watchlists. On a similar note, I've just started a discussion there about spammers. -Philosopher Let us reason together. 02:02, 4 August 2012 (EDT)

'Bout a couple of things.

The comic counter is a bit off, and that apology from Jeff has been around for ages. There's also a double redirect to the main page that I can't fix. O almighty admin, bestow your gift of power upon us and fix these annoying niggles for us editors. Davidy22 (talk) 09:19, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Ix-nay'd the we're back announcement; that's easy. The counter one I'm going to hold off on; there's some voodoo in the calculation I don't fully understand; there was a discussion about that augmented math that will bear some looking into. I recommend reactivating the appropriate discussion on the Community Portal. Anyway, hopefully half fulfilled is still fulfilled... IronyChef (talk) 13:34, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
... oh, and that double-redirect is history, too. IronyChef (talk) 13:37, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

This is getting ridiculous

The spam recently. It's obscene. Could you block anonymous page creation and account creation for a few days? Davidy22 (talk) 23:29, 19 October 2012 (UTC)

OM(F)G... yeah, we've been hit by a spambot again. I think Jeff is the only one with those priv's, but let me look into what I can do, too.
Oh, and we're going to have to be a lot more careful with our blocks. I just saw a anonymous user try to get Hkmaly banned by giving him a spam userpage, and I don't know how long they've been doing it. It's entirely possible that they've already gotten legitimate editors blocked in the past. I don't know what to do. I want to cry. Davidy22 (talk) 09:43, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen that happen a couple of times, too. I've not blocked contributors, just removed the spam page when that is the case. Fortunately, blocks can be undone. but what bummer for the legit contributor. -- IronyChef (talk) 13:13, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

This IP is vandalizing again: 188.143.232.12

So, now what?

Do I come down from the heavens and pass judgement on those without sheep's blood on the door posts? I don't see that option on the Actions drop down. I do like the shiny userbox though, that's nice. lcarsos (talk) 16:33, 2 November 2012 (UTC)

Sadly, no (not yet, anyway.) But I'm trying to scrounge up enough tin to make some stars... not as dramatic, alas. -- IronyChef (talk) 16:39, 2 November 2012 (UTC)
