[[User:Andreas]] would like to be an administrator, he has been here for [http://www.palaeos.org/index.php?title=Special:Contributions&dir=prev&target=Andreas over six months] and proved trustworthy.  We may need more sysops to deal with an outbreak of spam here.

Paul, if you do not act soon this site may well die.

Thanks for visiting Paul, the spam is getting to be a really big problem, I can manage but if I can't use my computer for any reason spam will overwhelm the site.  I think regretfully we need to make the site editable by administrators only till someone has time to get us a CAPTCHA.

Thanks for the CAPTCHA, there's been no new spam overnight so I'm hopeful.  Please check back once a day or so for the next week to ensure things stay OK as there is sometimes random variation in the spam.  If things are OK after a week please keep checking at least once a month as those who run spambots are continually making their technology more effective and fresh trouble may start.

We may have to live with one spammer a day, what's left may be human spammers and the CAPTCHA may be stopping the bots. [[User:Proxima Centauri|Proxima Centauri]] 20:21, 7 July 2011 (PDT)

I'm pleased you're here regularly and I'm not alone fighting the spammers. [[User:Proxima Centauri|Proxima Centauri]] 02:13, 8 July 2011 (PDT)

A whole lot of new users with names similar to the names of spammers are turning up, I don't block them unless they actually spam.  I suspect if I block one there will be a flurry of compaints and demands to desysop me.  Afterwards if successful the spammers will have one fewer administrators fighting them. Anyway unless they spam they're harmless. [[User:Proxima Centauri|Proxima Centauri]] 00:33, 10 August 2011 (PDT)

If I click onto [http://www.palaeos.org/index.php?title=Orchidaceae&action=history History of Orchidaceae] and click from there straight to the article I get spam about viagra.  I don't know how to deal with this. [[User:Proxima Centauri|Proxima Centauri]] 23:37, 7 May 2013 (PDT)

[[User:Arctodus23]] has edited constructively here and I'm happy to have him/her as an ordinary editor.  A user with a similar name [http://liberapedia.wikia.com/wiki/Special:Log/block?page=User%3AArctodus23 caused problems elsewhere] and I can't recommend the user as an administrator.
