How do you report or delete articles on the wiki?

Recommended Posts

I found some spam on the wiki and would like to request deletion, but there doesn't seem to be an option (probably because I don't have the rights).
So, is there a way to notify administrators (currently only @Michael Aivaliotis?) directly or should we open new topics here?

Here are the offending pages.

Edit: There also seem to be some orphan files that should be released of their existence:

There is no end to this...

Saving because I don't want to loose progress...

Done.

All of this spam was created a long time ago when the site was more vulnerable. The wiki has been locked down since then, and this should not happen again (but some get through).

I deleted the first list of pages you mentioned. The uploaded images are tedious to delete because there no simple tool I've found to do it on a mass scale. Since they're not linked anywhere then they don't do much harm except use up server space. It seems you have time. So I will connect with you directly offline to give you some rights.

      After I made this post I decided to bring the LabVIEW Wiki back online. It was not easy and took several days of server upgrades and hacking. The good news is I was able to bring up all the original pages.. The even better news is I talked with @The Q and @hooovahh and we are all on the same page as to how to move forward. @The Q did a great job of stepping forward and trying to fill the void that the LabVIEW Wiki's absence had left. He's agreed to migrate all the new content he created over to the LabVIEW Wiki, from Fandom and continue to develop new articles and content moving forward on the new site. He will also help in moderating the Wiki and will be promoted to Admin rights on the Wiki. His help is much appreciated.
      The LabVIEW landing page created here on LAVA is awesome but the forums don't lend themselves to static content creation. Instead @hooovahh has agreed to move the old landing page to here. That will be the new home for the landing page. This will become a valuable resource for the community and I hope all of you start pointing new people in that direction. With many editors, it can only get better and better over time.
      Where do we go from here:
      Logging in. - The old accounts are still there. If you're a LAVA old-timer, then you can try to login using your LAVA username. If the password doesn't work then reset it. You can also create a new account here. I'm going to announce a day when new accounts can be created. I'm limiting it for now because of all the spam accounts that can be potentially created. There's an issue with the current Captcha system. if you are super-eager to start creating content now and want to help, send me a direct message on LAVA and I can manually create an account right away.   - New account creation is now open. Permitted content: - I'm not going to put restrictions on content at the moment. Obvious vandalism or offensive\illegal content will not be tolerated of course. However, the guidelines will be adjusted as time goes on and new content is created. There's just not enough content right now to be overly concerned about this. We need content. Discussions about the Wiki. - Each article page has an associated discussions page where you can discuss issues related to that article. Please use that mechanism (same etiquette as wikipedia). General Wiki issues\questions and high level discussions can be done here. So now, if you need to add content, you can do it yourself. 
      Feedback as always is welcome.

      Hi All,
      There was some talk at the BBQ of some revamp work of the LabVIEW Wiki and want to volunteer my services. What I wanted to understand is what do we prioritise, are we just trying to repeat the LabVIEW help, or keep tips and tricks or some combination of the two? Either way I might try and start on some of the stubs.
      Cheers,
      James
