Meeeeeee toooooooo



  • thought this was funny....  (under Climate heading) 




  • A vandal on Wikipedia!?!  Surely this cannot be!



  • What's so funny about liking pie?



  • /me runs off to vandalize a bunch of wikipedia pages and post them on TDWTF.

    "Then I will get all the replies and hits! Then TR won't make me cry by criticizing my posts! W00t!" 



  • The Real WTF is that you were reading the Wikipedia page on Idaho and actually scrolled to the section on climate. 

    Even if you live in Idaho, it's still a WTF. 



  • Surely vandalising Wikipedia stopped being funny roughly five minutes after the first article was written?

    I'm pretty sure living in Idaho is the real WTF.

    So did saying "The Real WTF is..." but clearly that hasn't stopped anyone.

    Admittedly, I knew posting a wikipedia page was lame, but eh - whatever - this is what happens when there's only 1 front page post for the day.  I get bored.   Consider this filler.

    3 people are standing around on a street. How do you know which one's the prostitute?

    ROFL

  • You know, I wonder how come noone's built a robot yet to automatically vandalise/erase wikipedia pages. All of them. At the same time.

    I mean, sure they can be reverted, but that would be a lot of work!

     It's been done, many times. Wikipedia administrators will simply block the user account or IP address responsible, which takes a few seconds. Reverting all a user's changes doesn't take much longer.

    Any edit dumb enough to be made by a bot can also be detected by an anti-vandal bot... and the former can be blocked, the latter won't be :)

     
    More importantly though, administrators have a button that with a single click will roll back every single contribution made by a user. 



  • TRWTF (scuse me)

     is a theme for Firefox that makes it look like IE7.

    Then how about with a botnet? Get a million zombies deleting that stuff continuously!



  • Protect every page, suspend new Wikipedia registrations, revert everything, IN THAT ORDER.

    To be honest the DDOS by such a level of demand would be a bigger issue than the actual vandalism.

    MasterPlan, did you actually have anything to say?

    Nope, just filing it away under the appropriate tags.

    It would take about ten minutes to contact a developer and have him put Wikipedia in read-only mode. It would then take about 30 seconds for that developer to undo every edit made in the ten minutes in question.
