The Smaa Wiki Monitorin Team (SWMT) is a groop o Wikimedians who, uisin IRC an ither tuils, monitor smaa wikis for vandalism, spam or trollin. Thare are several bots which report ony suspicious edits tae the wikis that the SWMT monitors. Tae help, simply jyn #cvn-swconnect on IRC. Ye can an aa edit the leet o uisers belaw tae register yer parteecipation.

Defineetion o "smaa"

The "smaa" in "Smaa Wiki Monitorin Team" is tae be interpreted broadly. Altho the bots on IRC monitor maist wikis wi fewer than 10,000 airticles, that is nae tae say that thay are "smaa" as in "insignificant"; rather, we prefer tae monitor as lairge a nummer o wikis as possible, so that we can maist effectively coordinate measurs tae stop spammers an vandals that damage a lot o wikis en masse, or target smawer wikis acause thay think thay can avoid detection althegither.

Tharefore, please don't be offended if ane o oor members revert vandalism on yer wiki, identifyin themselves as a member o the SWMT; we're thare acause we care aboot yer wiki, nae acause we think it is a backburner project.
