Staff reverting wiki changes due to spam

2018 Category Challenge

Due to a serious spam situation that came up over the last few days, we'll be reverting wiki changes back to November 4th in the next day or so. I know this group uses the wiki quite a lot, so I wanted to let you all know that I've saved the wiki pages that are mentioned in the group description, as they've been edited during this timeframe, and will restore them to their current versions after we've made the necessary changes.

For this group, I have currently saved just the page below:

2018 MysteryCAT

If there are other pages you've worked on that have edits between Nov 4th and today, please either copy and save their text somewhere safe until we've reverted the wiki, or let me know in this thread so I can do so for you.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience. We're working on migrating the wiki over to a new system, but in the meantime, needed to take action to ensure it was not completely overrun with spam.

I had checked the other 2018 wikis when this first began and the MysteryCAT was the only one that had been updated since the problems began. Just to reassure everyone here.

And thanks Lorannen

Copied over from the main wiki spam thread:

Sorry for the delay, folks. We had one solution that we thought would work in place, but it fell through at the last minute. Sysadmin is working hard on getting the migration complete right now. While I don't have a specific ETA, it's on the order of a few days yet before it's done. Thanks so much for your patience.
