Thankfully you are a Staff member. I would like to request this user is banned. I already sent a message through Special asking for that wiki to be closed, but since that thing runs on business days, it wont happen till Monday, and as a result this user needs to be banned before anything else happens.
While I am not DaNASCAT, I'll just say that I don't really see use for achievements here. I mean, this is a wiki to help users with other wikis, not a place to edit for fun. There isn't really anything worth gaining badges over editing here. Now, if this was a gaming wiki, I would see the use for badges, because people can work hard on expanding articles about topics and might want to get rewarded for it.
On your page, you have a nice list of wikis for new users. Could you also add Scratchpad as I didn't see it there and it's a good wiki for new users to make their own mini wikis when a full-size wiki might be too large?
I am a big fan of your work and all of the staff’s work and I would like to ask you a question. How to block people? Could anonymous users do it? Because I'm curious after seeing some users got blocked
That was part of the breach, but as you can see by the Rights log, Rappy cleaned that up quickly. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. As far as I know, that situation is resolved.
How do they hit exactly? From what I hear, the login form is causing issues. But, people have been saying that it's because of either a script on the dev wiki being edited or a mediawiki script page being edited. Are they tracking keystrokes and somehow encrypting them to send elsewhere? Or, are they making it so that when you click login it sends your info somewhere else rather than as you type? I've been confused about that part of the whole operation and I might be able to help if I have more info (though I saw in the topic you said that it was under control). Also, if your account was hit, maybe one of the other staff members should be keeping track of the status of the operation to ensure security of the topic and info contained within.
However, if you feel this is a mistake, you're free to talk about it with Staff privately in Special:Contact.
As stated in the thread, we are just beginning the process of designing this program. As such, I'm not trying to skip around the answers - we just don't have them yet. We will be communicating each change well in advance, accept feedback on the blog announcement, and create help pages to document all the new changes.
