Wiki Reminder: Just a reminder that the site does in fact have a wiki and we are working on it. I have recently installed the Bad Behavior extension to help curb the rampant spam and *hope* that will help. I have also played with the look and feel of the wiki so that it looks more like the rest of SportsFilter. Lastly, I have added the FAQ and the Guidelines to the wiki, with the idea that the original versions on can be redirected to the wiki. Everyone is encouraged to sign up for a wiki account (please use your SpoFi username) and to add/edit content in a responsible manner.

Thanks, justgary. It would be nice if at least one admin had a page.

I'll try and beef up the Fantasy Sports section as soon as I have some time. That will be next week, I'm afraid.

BTW, I am going to delete these unknown users unless someone can vouch for them. I believe they are spam accounts: GkzZ3o Riccardox4678s Spitztengle Also, PLEASE include a valid email should you create an account in case we have to move to a valid email required for editing to fight spammers. Right now, Bad Behavior is doing a great job, but it will be helpful if we have email addresses for the future.

spitztengle is a fairly regular poster on the site so I don't think that is a spammer.

There's a Ricardo here as well. When thou art king, never ban a spammer.

ok. Thanks for chiming in. As said above, I miss memos :) For future wikipedians, please use your exact username when registering to avoid confusion or accidental bannings.

As terrible a book title as that is, I have to concede I do really like Amazon's condensed version for the URL. A "Brawling-Bimbo-chasing-Championship-Baseball-Uniform" would undoubtedly draw some serious cash on e-bay.

I have created the redirects from the old FAQ and the Guidelines to the new ones on the wiki. Hopefully rcade (or someone) can make links to the wiki in the template so that it may get more exposure.
