Proposed additions is getting spammed cross wiki by various IPs. -- 20:18, 17 October 2010 (UTC).

Hello guys. the HerbsTopic project - is the project aimed to give to user visual information from one site about Herbs and other plants. There are many sites about herbs, but no one of them propose many of fotos and description on various languages. With this project user can obtain this info in one place.

As I post here anybody can help to develop this project.

Of course, you can say: there are wiki and other related sites, but the not propose various plant fotos from various views, and people, in common, don't view academical sites, it more comfortable for people to view many fotos in one place and don't waste time to find fotos of plant (because all fotos tagged with various languages) or find the name of the plant by fotos.

There are photografers and people what I asked to help (with fotos) and obtain it.

By posting information on wiki I aimed: 1) show people visual information; 2) draw attention to my site people who want to help with fotos.

Herbstopic project is a SITE FOR PEOPLE ONLY. I realised what it can considered as a spam and already registered (as someone already mentioned). I'm going develop Uk part. I'm not a spammer and post a links only for little part of my fotos. No more. And I'm not going to post in the future. It's only my hobby and takes me time to do so. Sorry for my actions. And if you insist I'm ready to delete all my links. And I ask you do not consider Herbstopic in a blacklist. Thanks

All links has been deleted from wiki. You can refer to HT site if you want. THANKS for your work.

  Declined. User is acting in good faith. Siet is informative, but I do not see why this info could not be added to wikipedia. --EdBever 13:48, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Link added on several wikis: [1]. The site is mainly for promotion of a certain book, and so not of any use to the project. /NH 01:49, 29 December 2010 (UTC)

Copyright-infringing link (unauthorized hosting of movies) was being added to English Wikipedia. (Note: I have deleted the IP's addition of links to this site to articles from the pages' history.) - Mike Rosoft 16:13, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

  Declined. The link is not spammed cross wiki and should be blacklisted locally. --Wutsje 16:20, 2 January 2011 (UTC)

  Declined. Link was definitely spammed, but the last addition was in april 2009 so no need for blacklisting at the moment. If the spamming continues we should blacklist this link. --EdBever 11:11, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

Per above, see diff on openhatch wiki. Pornspam, possibly child pornography (haven't checked). EdBever 11:58, 11 January 2011 (UTC)

It actually looks like something to do with videogames (probably WoW - not sure where you got child porn (or porn at all). That's why I didn't include it in the batch above; it may have legitimate uses on WMF wikis.  – mike@meta:~$  15:44, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
This need to be removed. Links to wowhead itself isn't the problem, it is a World of Warcraft fansite. Those user profiles are spambots, so the problem lies within whomever is responsible for moderating content on their site...if anything the entry should be modified to block only those user profiles and not the site itself. --Charitwo 19:17, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
This is Malgayne from We've wiped out the spammers' profiles, and we're instituting a policy that SHOULD prevent this from happening in the future. There were 5000 or so users created, and if you'd like it, we have a zipped CSV available of all the spammer profiles in the list. Assuming that you trust me, you can download the zipped CSV from my dropbox account at If you ever encounter anything like this again, please contact me at and I'll get it straightened out. In the meantime, we'd love if you could remove this blacklist as it's causing a lot of trouble with World of Warcraft themed wikis like or —Malgayne
  Removed. I did investigate the link, but not the links mentioned in the diff on Openhatch wiki since I was in a public place and I generally do not investigate kiddyporn sites, I blacklist those on sight. I saw the profiles in question several minutes ago and saw they were empty. I have removed the link after the above comment. The link was inserted a lot of times on various wikis: Top 10 wikis where has been added: w:en (160), w:fi (43), w:tr (40), w:ru (34), w:fr (33), w:cs (27), w:da (11), w:it (8), w:de (8), w:simple (7). Top 10 editors who have added Vikiçizer (24), Ghostcrawler (18), Stifle(17), Jakub Vejhonek (16), Fandyllic (14), (14), Salebot (12), (11), (7), Mskyrider (7). 50 instances remain on en:, although most on user- and talk pages. I assume the link might be deemed relevant and the spamming has been stopped. Thank you for cooperating and apologies for any inconvenience. EdBever 21:31, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Happy to help. Again, you can reach me at if this ever happens again.
