banhammer.pngWilliam wields the spam-bot banhammer. If you aren't a spam bot, no worries.

William is a wiki spot evangelist. He wants you to read the community guidelines and then create a wiki for your community.

On wiki spot, he can be found lurking, gnoming, and occasionally actually contributing to [davis]dwiki. You might want to check out his [davis]userpage over there. Or not. He might not be the most interesting guy in the world.

If you have any questions about creating or using wiki spot wikis, feel free to drop him a line below.

2010-06-02 02:32:54   Reviewing back through some wikis to check they haven't reappeared, might I say that [WWW]that's a serious use of color. —JabberWokky

2010-07-01 14:50:31   By the way, [dating]dating might be one of those "template SEO" spam wikis I walk talking to you about roughly a month ago. Slightly different, as it doesn't have the two photos. But it does have the predictable format of "lead-in section with keywords, contact section with link". —JabberWokky

2010-07-07 12:39:31   Note that [selfadvocacy]selfadvocacy is linking to a non-commercial entity. It looks like SEO, but I don't think it is. —JabberWokky

2010-07-13 00:03:42   William—just a FYI. We've been discussing with Wikispot higher-ups on how to forge a closer relationship between WS and [WWW]RocWiki. That's why I was listing the spammers we're seeing. —Users/PeterBoulay

2010-07-19 23:32:04   William—FYI on [WWW]PCT you reverted my edit for Records and put spam back on the page (resume writing). —Users/PeterBoulay

2010-07-26 19:02:56   Yes, I did. Woops. —NateCRC

2010-08-24 20:11:32   Hi William it appears that you deleted my profile info. I created an account on wikispot today not for the purposes of spam but to actually contribute some architectural knowledge to a wiki. I was in fact guided by my I.T. consultant, it is part of an overall marketing effort in my firm but more so an effort to increase exposure of our architectural design process etc. My apologies if this qualifies as a spam attempt, that was not our intention. —AnthonyBrooks

2010-09-27 16:04:04   We had discussed the organized spammer that does different sites? I mentioned that they used colons or semi-colons and seemed to have two templates (or there are two of them). [synergyremodel]synergyremodel is an example of the colon/semi-colon template one. —JabberWokky

2010-09-28 14:15:06   As if on cue, here's the [autoinsurance521]other standard spam format. The "two photo" type. Two photos, two paragraphs, two links. —JabberWokky

2010-09-29 16:31:53   Really classy work on the Rosehill Quarry cleanup. That was really nicely done in terms of helping them consolidate and move things. —JabberWokky

2010-09-30 14:39:51   Check my comment in Abuse/Talk. 23 SEO wikis is getting to be too much. Any ideas that will dissuade spammers but not honest creators of wikis? Preferably something that can be implemented easily? —JabberWokky

2010-10-01 08:56:30   Hi William

I moved content over to the link "here" but when i click on the rosehillquarry link it still tells me that a page has not been created. I am confused about where i am meant to be creating the wiki. There seems to be a rosehillquarry wiki and a users/rosehillquarry wiki

thanks —rosehillquarry

2010-10-26 11:14:25   I would like to create a wiki for a university class about language use. The "Create wiki" button tells me I didn't click the link in my account registration e-mail, but I never got such an e-mail in the first place. Can you help me? —DavidZintl

2010-10-27 13:19:58   I sleep in late and you fight spam late. We're in sync. Of course, lately the spam makes me go "Ugg".

On a more serious topic, it's possible I'm seeing a drop in seo spam wikis. I've been tagging them and am going to collect the data and have Sarah graph it sometime this week. —JabberWokky

2010-11-16 12:58:01   Not only did they make the bio entries on the hub, the class (or so I assume) made about a dozen actual one-page wikis. I didn't wipe them, but we might want to consider the question of how to handle one-person class project wikis. They start a seed for a topic, but I question that it will ever get picked up by any community. —JabberWokky

2010-11-26 11:59:04   Impacts and threats of computers.

There are several impacts to communicating in IT for example: economic, social, abuse of IT and ethical impact.
These are serious because they can keep personal information, some impacts can protect data or information.

Ethical impact
Ethical impact is the privacy of people information for example like: data of birth, name, address etc.
This is the list with the stores that need the privacy information to keep your records safe:
Hospitals post office
Boots face book
Tesco’s/ Sainsbury DVLA
Birmingham city EMA
Banks council
PSN government
College electric, gas, water

All these have our details and they use this because it helps trace us the next time we pay or buy something they will have our records all ready on the system, if you are not on the system then you will have to register and then your information will be on the system until the next time, but if the stores lose the records then they will break the data protection act and it will be their responsibility to replace it all.
Unequal access
Unequal access is all about the less access to the internet from other countries like:
In other countries they have less access to the computers because of the equipments costing and some countries like Egypt and china have censorship because anything to do with Tibet or dissent they have a censor ban or go on you tube and Google etc, also they have unequal access to broadband.

Economic impact
With economic impact they have obsolete equipment
It is a waste of money due to the speed change, they have cost/ time needed to use it and train, made new job opportunities, they can also lose jobs due to automation
And they can work from home.

Social impact
With the social impact families don’t spend much time together because if the kids have face book or youtube upstairs they will be most likely to be upstairs playing on the computer.
Instead of kids going outside to play they will be inside playing on games or face book etc.
But if you have someone who is out of the country and you want to keep in touch then you can by using emails and video conferencing.

This is a Wiki Spot wiki. Wiki Spot is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that helps communities collaborate via wikis.
