Spambot pages[edit source]

Looks to be lots of spambot pages in Special:RecentChanges. You may need to create/enable an edit filter There'sNoTime (talk) 21:16, 4 March 2018 (UTC)

@There'sNoTime: Any suggestions for edit filters? (Email me?) L235 (talk) 20:45, 6 March 2018 (UTC)
At some stage I considered creating a new filter disallowing edits if "new users with no other contribs" + "new page" + "has a link to external sites" + "that new external sites are not Wikimedia Wikis" are all satisfied, but thought that would be too prone to false positive for semi-fishbowl wikis like wikimaniawikis. — regards, Revi 11:42, 6 July 2018 (UTC)
