There's currently a user that continuously appears every day, creating several sockpuppet accounts that they use to leave messages on walls insulting the staff members and recently have started targeting others. The usernames of these accounts often include innapropriate language and degrading words towards their targets.
I was just wondering if you have any insight on what we could possibly do other than banning the innumerable sockpuppet accounts they continue to create daily?
Hi! Definitely. We can turn on the spam filter for you on the wiki so you can set up any words for blocks. We can also turn on registered users editing only if the users spams a lot with different IPs. Our VSTF and wiki manager can also help you monitor this wiki as well. Let me know what you think and we can take some actions from there.
We already have AbuseFilter, and filter that prevents users from post profanity and etc, which were recently updated, but the rate limit might be better done via wikifactory or etc, than abusefilter (also iirc we already have a ratelimit filter).
Hi! I have set up some restrictions. Newbies and IPs can only do 1 edit per minute and 1 move in 4 minutes. Please let me know if this works. If you want to set up extra limits, I can also set up a certain number of edits an account requires before it is autoconfirmed. But please remember, this will affect all new registered users. Have to think twice before you want to do this setup.
Once the sockpuppet fades away, let me know and I can remove these restrictions. :)
