The most effective anti-vandalism measure is an active community. We have a team of people (the Recent Changes Patrol monitoring all edits made, and vandalism and spam are quickly reverted.

We are also looking at other measures such as bots (as used with great efficiency at Wikipedia) to monitor and quickly revert vandalism.

See also the talk page, for further discussion.

Suggestions

  • implement a bot or bots taken (with permission) from Wikipedia spam & vandal-fighters. E.g. Template:Wikipedia p
  • ban page creation by anons & new accounts (like Wikipedia)
  • implement soft-protection for pages that are spam targets
  • reverse Turing tests
