Greetings, and thanks for all the good stuff you've been doing on That Typos Thread. You've been named to the Order of Heretical Monks (i.e., those people who contribute heavily to the wiki). How about putting a few things on your user page to explain who you are? -- Graybeard 08:55, 5 June 2007 (CDT)

Spambot attacks

As announced on the Forum, today we were targeted by a particularly nasty and persistent set of spambots. Most contributors to the wiki have been blocked, but for the time being, a twiddle has been arranged that allows you to continue editing, not least so that you can continue to do good stuff on keeping TTT up to date. That involves at least temporarily making you a "sysop" with the ability to delete pages, etc. I don't know whether that will be a lasting thing, and for the time being, I would recommend you not do too much with the extra buttons that a sysop has (I presume you've seen those), since we haven't cleared with Impy the idea of making you a sysop permanently. However, we could use the help. Please drop me a message on my talk page if you want to consider sysopping on a more permanent basis. -- Graybeard 15:09, 10 June 2007 (CDT)

Policy page

I've started a The Heretic Knowledge Vault:Policy page to help set up access/block/protection guidelines. These will become useful when the software gets upgraded to allow new security measures, and I think they should be informative even now. Please read and comment on the talk page (and change as applicable, since you have sysop access and can make changes to the content page itself, which is currently protected). -- Graybeard 10:31, 16 June 2007 (CDT)

There's an update to this in the works, involving new usernames. Please drop by the talk page and comment. -- Graybeard 22:17, 5 November 2007 (CST)
