The protection of quest articles is after a long series of vandalism. It is unlikely we will unprotect all permanently or even temporarily. Ask another administrator if you need to make an edit / request individual unprotection.
- ^ Yes I needed to mention this because apparently the message on the protection log is obscure and does not convey meaning.

H.L. and women
If that is the case, it certainly has been changed. I remember years ago (when you still traded by saying "buy <item name>"), he didn't even speak with my female character. -- Bennie (talk ~ fellows) 21:19, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
I'll check it out when I get home if nobody does it sooner. Maybe there was an error in CipSoft's NPC scripting when they introduced the trade system. -- Sixorish (talk) 23:05, March 18, 2015 (UTC)
hi sixorish, i was reverting a few spammers edits yesterday and got blocked by the abuse filter on my user Vapaus- can you please unblock and maybe edit a codition to abuse filter not to block rollbacks?
Hi Vapaus. There are no logs of your block. I guess you mean you lost autoconfirmed status which is preventing you from editing some semi-protected articles. I have reverted that so you should be able to edit most pages again.
Sorry that the filter caught you. I'll try to edit the conditions so that it doesn't affect you in the future, although it will be tricky. -- Sixorish (talk) 07:55, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
P.s im not sure i can track all the vandalized pages, it goes back from some time maybe you can remove all pages with either :"Bu/HU/BU" in them, i think i removed at least most of it but i cant be sure, they just put that at the beginning of many pages and later came and edited those spam pages to contain their keylogger~ link.
We can use Special:WhatLinksHere/Bu to find those (although a lot of entries are caused by transclusions), as far as I can see all of those have been removed. -- Sixorish (talk) 09:05, March 27, 2015 (UTC)
I think that maybe the warning should appear on all articles that have been edited since (approximately) 3 weeks ago, i don't see a reason for it to be on all articles that are not by admins or so, this is kind of what wiki is about, also maybe remove some articles from protected status since probably most of it had been protected for a specific reason in a specific time e.g a new item at a time where people kept changing the price in order to gain money which is irrelevant nowadays. just some thoughts :)

Hey Vapaus, thanks for your concern.
I agree we shouldn't assume everyone except administrators are guilty. The message is not intended to label editors as shady, it's supposed to inform the readers that the page might be a target of the vandalism that's been affecting us. It is hoped that the reader will look at the content and then decide for themselves if it is a target of vandalism.
I have adjusted the script so that it will only warn the users if the page has been edited in the last 7 days. This will allow us 7 days to fix the vandalism before it becomes "trustworthy". The whitelist will remain but eventually all edits will become trusted by their age. This will at least allow some protected articles that haven't been edited in a long time to be considered as trusted. -- Sixorish (talk) 06:37, April 7, 2015 (UTC)
I'm using monobook. It doesn't care for the Message Wall: namespace. But I suppose you could do ?action=delete on Wikia's skin. -- Sixorish (talk) 12:19, April 13, 2015 (UTC)
One of our contributors (User:Cauli92) messaged me in game and said he had accidentally been autoblocked after diverting vandalism. I don't see anything wrong with his account (which doesn't appear to be blocked). As the recently blocked user Zareba had two associated IPs banned with him, I figured one of them must have been Cauli's. I unblocked one which appears to have done nothing for him (no idea how to reblock it, sorry). I don't want to risk unblocking the other adress. Could you take a look?
