The Volunteer Spam Task Force is a group of Fandom users who have volunteered to help keep Fandom clear and free of spam. The task force is made up of users who act in the interests of the greater Fandom community by helping keep Fandom vandal and spam free. To do this they have been given additional user rights that allow them to detect, delete and block spam.

You can report spam on the VSTF Wiki or in the VSTF IRC Channel. Please be sure to read their policies first.

Members

150px-T3-dsktp_3_TX.jpg VSTF Bot is an automated and experienced spam fighting robot. It is comprised of two frameworks. Half of it is an adaptation of stewbot of Wikimedia. The other half consists of scripts developed by VSTF member sactage. She only answers to members of the Spam Task Force, so if you have questions regarding an action taken by the bot, please contact one of the above members.


Former volunteers are listed here.

Tools

Task force members have extended user rights on all Fandom communities, including some administrator tools and access to additional tools that help them react quickly and effectively to find and remove vandalism and spam. It's important to note that they do not replace or "outrank" local administrators. The local community and the local admins are responsible for their wiki-specific tasks; but the task force is only there to help with cleaning cross-Fandom spam, and reverting vandalism on quiet or inactive wikis.
