Hi! Your user page category has been changed to Category:Hitchhikers in Germany because from now on this (along with the old Category:Hitchhikers) will be a standard categorization for hitchhikers on hitchwiki.org (see this discussion here for the reasons of doing so). If for some reason you don't want to be categorized by country, feel free to delete country category on your page leaving only a standard Category:Hitchhikers. We hope you don't mind, though.

Created first draft, needs lots of work...
IP addresses change a lot so in that case 6 months is fine, but I usually block users that spam forever. I also see that we've been getting more spammers recently. I guess hitchwiki is becoming more popular ;) guaka 12:54, 2 November 2010 (CET)
- I'm an admin on Dezhi Systems support site - if a spammer logs in from IP address aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd, I routinely block aab.bbb.*.* Might hit innocent users, but at one stage we had dozens of spammers a day, now it's down to a handful or so. Prino 16:51, 2 November 2010 (CET)
- This is an easy way to lock out a small country ;) We should not do that until it's neccessary. For now, we just had a spammer or two every other week. --MrTweek 17:34, 2 November 2010 (CET)
- same opinion, spammers ip-banning is enough, if it is getting more spammy we can think about more resoltue methods but not now. --Quarim 09:59, 3 November 2010 (CET)
