WikiaSpam is a spam-detection bot that resides in #wikia-spam. See here for a list of commands.

Each day at 00:00 UTC, WikiaSpam will also report possible spam and non-spam wikis based on wiki statistics at List:Spam wikis.

Here is a brief explanation of the bot's keywords when reporting spam in #wikia-spam:

  • XRM: IP creates a page where the title is very similar to the summary.
  • URL: User created new page with a URL similar to their username.
  • THR: User with editcount lower than 3 posted a link on their own wall.
  • COI: User created a wiki whose name or URL is similar to their username.
  • WUR: User inserted a URL on a new wiki in less than 1 hour after creation.
  • DUR: Same as URL but for Discussions.
  • FLT: User matched a title, summary, content or URL blacklist.
