    Introduction to the VSTF

    April 10, 2013 by Sactage

    Hi everyone!

    My name is Sactage, and today I am guest blogging on the staff blog so I can introduce you to Wikia's Volunteer Spam Task Force, or VSTF for short. We're a group of users who have volunteered to help make Wikia a better place for readers and editors alike. In order to effectively perform this task, we have access to several global tools, such as global blocks and global spam filter, as well as the ability to delete pages and block users on most Wikia wikis. However, we do not have any authority over local wiki tasks like an administrator does - I usually equate our responsibilities to that of a janitor.

The filter labels "Content Pages" and "Multimedia" have been changed to "Articles" and "Photos and Videos". Ads, when seen, will now be on the right side.
    • In the Wikia Mobile skin, the Wi…

    We're back with weekly technical updates. Sorry for the early summer holiday, but as many of you know we have been working hard on a project to update all our wikis to MediaWiki 1.19, which has meant that other changes have not been happening as frequently. Now that most of the upgrade work is complete and we're focusing on fixing related bugs, we're ready to bring back our weekly Technical Updates.

    We started migrating wikis to 1.19 towards the end of June, and here we are at the end of July with around 12,000 individual wik…
