    The have been and still is a ongoing bot attack on the PGVwiki site.
    It generate random spam page, and have even change the main page.

    tried to make a "category: spam" page for most of them. But the seem to go on forever.
    could someone block these attacks?

    Hi all,

    I have changed the way a new user logs creates a page on the wiki.  The wiki is now using ReCaptcha to try and prevent spaming.  I have also had to remove ALL the unused accounts and block some IP addresses.

    This means that if you had an account and you had not previously used it to create some content on the wiki your account may have been deleted.  Please just register again.

    If you have been blocked and wish to access the wiki to add something please just let me know via an email and we will try and solve that problem.

    I hope that stops the spam for a while
