The Volunteer Spam Task Force is a group of Wikia users who have volunteered to help keep Wikia clear and free of spam. The task force is made up of users who act in the interests of the greater Wikia community by helping keep Wikia 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. Please be sure to read their policies first.

Tools

Task force members have most of the same privileges as local administrators, but on all Wikia wikis; they also have access to a few extra 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-Wikia spam, and reverting vandalism on quiet or inactive wikis.
