    There's tonnes of spam pages that have been added, i thought they were a temporary thing but the same ones are still there from when i first played CoC 3 months ago.

    No, not really. Game's been done for half a decade. Please report specific spam pages because otherwise nobody's going to go checking for them.

    Hmmm, might be worth locking the wiki down on new page creations, maybe leave current pages open for editing but no new ones without approval. Also, i can't find a report button or link.

    Account Creations are disabled for smutosaur, however the bots that remain in the coc wiki are still active or havent been banned since no one maintains it, occasionally someone adds/edits the current info. Current someone by the name of Difficult2Register, had been poking around april but thats about it i think

    As I said,
    Admins can delete pages and ban accounts

    Hmmm, so no admins maintain it, no admins to remove them. Blech, oh well, guess it's a lost cause.

    It shouldn't be. Once cleaned, it could be leisurely completed and checked once per day to remove any vandalism and spam.

    Well, these spam pages span back months and none of them have been removed, so it seems no admins are looking over it or banning the spam bots.

    Bots can be used to mass deletion on wikis and such.

    Ok, but that's not be done, i don't have answer Kesil, that's what this thread was for, apparently no one has permissions to delete the pages or ban the bots, their pages have been up for months and nothings been done, apparently nothing can be done. I'd love it if it could, but it seems it will never be. Thread's sort of over given that.

    Hey are you a member of or know the team that made the COC game, cause I have a question about the verse as a whole.

    The game is considered done, despite many things being left unfinished and unimplemented?

    That's honestly more than a little disappointing.

    All the unfinished stuff is mostly because the authors of those loose-ended content/characters had fucked off before finishing them, bit off more than one could chew. The STORY as a whole's as finished as it's gonna get with that.

    The story is, I agree, but most of the other content isn't.

    I honestly hope they'll unshelf CoC1, and work on it again, even if those content-creators don't plan on working on it.

    "The rest" is never being worked on. Accept that the official game is as finished as it can be and dead.

    We aren't even unshelving CoC1 to make it work on modern AndroidOS. It's never being worked on again.
