Yo bro. Any chance of automating some backups of the wiki? It's basically down to editing a couple of config files, creating a very basic script and setting up a cron job.
* https://wiki.installgentoo.com/index.php/Wiki_Backups#This_Wiki.27s_Backup
* The compressed backups will likely by <100mb (my mirror of the wiki, with images, 7zips down to 100mb). An archive of backups isn't needed - just the current backup will do.
Throwing the backups onto the installgentoo FTP would be ok, but I'd personally prefer somewhere publicly accessable.
Cheers, [[User:Mrsnooze]]
I can look into this, currently nightly backups are done via Tarsnap

Mainpage links

A few links on the main page/special pages broke with the wiki name change:

Massive Spammer

There continues to be a massive spammer who seems to be targeting me individually. He continues to spam my edits, my user page, and has even begun to spam me on other wikis and other mediums. His current usernames are TopCuck420, Top Cuck is Shit, and he also has started using the name Richard M. Stallman. I believe this to be the same person who has been spamming the wiki for the past month, changing articles to things like GNU/Linux on Wheels and Linux On Wheels On Wheels. Please ban this idiot. --The One, The Only... Chocolate Chip! (talk) 18:31, 3 December 2015 (EST)

I'd like to clarify that I'm NOT Topcuck420. This account is just made to undo his edits, and I don't want to clutter my original contributions and track through the undo's. --Topcuck is shit (talk) 20:59, 3 December 2015 (EST)
Bananafish, you really need to pay more attention to the wiki. As soon as I checked up on it, everything was spammed to hell again. Also, the bastard deleted all reports made against him on your talk page, and all talk pages of the articles he changed. Luckily he has stopped spamming and harrasing me on other mediums because THEY HAVE BETTER MODERATION. Please fix this god damn wiki! --The One, The Only... Chocolate Chip!

He started spaming again, under the name NSA Hater --The One, The Only... Chocolate Chip! (talk) 15:23, 4 December 2015 (EST)
Just appoint new mods/admins, will ya? --The Consortium (talk) 15:24, 4 December 2015 (EST)
Why aren't user pages locked to the user? Doesn't wikipedia do that? I thought they did. That'd be really beneficial to combat this spam. --The One, The Only... Chocolate Chip! (talk) 16:01, 4 December 2015 (EST)
