Due to a large amount of spam recently, the wiki is down for maintenance.

A spambot was creating about 5 accounts per minute for the last few hours, and each account created many pages. I disabled user registrations in an attempt to stop it, but the existing bots were still making pages.

The database became inaccessible, either due to becoming overloaded or as an automatic measure to prevent more spam, I will find out when it restarts.

The website, forums, and game are still up and 100% operational.

I will update this post as things change.

Here's a screenshot of the changelog in the spambot's early stages:

Update #1: The wiki is no longer under attack by spambots, but we need to implement protected account creation before we allow new registrations.

Update #2: The wiki now has a CAPTCHA for logins and page creations, which should prevent future spam incidents. Account creation has been re-enabled and the wiki is functioning normally again.

Could someone post a link to the wiki? The only link I've been able to find is broken.

The wiki is now called the encyclopedia. We intend to add editing or at least commenting/addendum capabilities to it,  but right now it acts more like the Glitch encyclopedia did.
