The 1989 Tiananmen Square protests, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident (Chinese: 六四事件, liùsì shìjiàn), were student-led demonstrations in Beijing (the capital of the People's Republic of China) for the establishment of basic human and press rights and against the Communist-led Chinese government in mid-1989. More broadly, it refers to the popular national movement inspired by the Beijing protests during that period, sometimes called the '89 Democracy Movement (Chinese: 八九民运, bājiǔ mínyùn). The protests were forcibly suppressed after Chinese Premier Li Peng declared martial law. In what became known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre, troops with assault rifles and tanks fired at the demonstrators trying to block the military's advance towards Tiananmen Square. The number of civilian deaths was internally estimated by the Chinese government to be near or above 10,000.

六四事件,又稱六四天安門事件,中華人民共和國政府称为1989年政治风波,廣義上指八九民運,是自1989年4月開始,由大學生在北京市天安門廣場發起,持续近两個月的全國性示威運動[6][7]。狹義上又指六四清場,即1989年6月3日晚間至6月4日凌晨,中国人民解放军、中国人民武装警察部队和人民警察在北京天安門廣場对示威集会进行的武力清场行动。


Fighting Spam Bots

The CWCki is a great place but is the target of spam bots. Here are some suggestions I have on how to fight spammers:

1. Spam Sniping

America's second favorite past time. If you see an obvious spam bot (a user page that reads like a blog with a ton of external links) or spam page (reads like a blog or ad with a ton of external links) then edit the page and put "delete|spambot/spam" with two curly brackets on either side at the at the top of the page. This will nominate the page for deletion.

2. Limit day-one edits

I'm not sure how much can be done to limit newly registered users but if possible limiting edits, particularly creating new pages, for the first 24 hours may be allow the admins to weed out spam bots as the captcha doesn't seem to stop these bots from making edits. The downside to this is that legitimate new uses will suffer, so this may not be the best.

3. Spam tagging bots

Employment of bots which use certain criteria to silently tag spam bots may be the most effective combative force against the bots. Targeting new users who post external links on their user page may be an easy way to find these bots but also certain phrases and even names may also be easy giveaways that a user is actually a spam bot.

4. Expand the registration process

This may confuse or impede the automated process spammers use to get bots on the wiki. Asking questions such as "What is Chris' medial made of?" or "What happened in China on June 4th?" may allow for legitimate users to create accounts but stop bots.

The CWCki is back up motherfuckers!
