細維基糾察隊(SWMT)係一班用 IRC 之類嘅架生來睇住啲細維基,控制住破壞搞搞震廣告。有幾隻機械人,會報告SWMT監察嘅維基入面嘅可疑行為。想參加SWMT,請加入IRC#cvn-swconnect臺;或者喺下面嘅SWMT隊友一覽加入自己個戶口名。


The "small" in "Small Wiki Monitoring Team" is to be broadly interpreted. Although the bots on IRC monitor most wikis with fewer than 10,000 articles, that is not to say that they are "small" as in "insignificant"; rather, we prefer to monitor as large a number of wikis as possible, so that we can most effectively coordinate measures to stop spammers and vandals that damage a lot of wikis en masse, or target smaller wikis because they think they can avoid detection altogether.

Therefore, please don't be offended if one of our members reverts vandalism on your wiki, identifying themselves as a member of the SWMT; we're there because we care about your wiki, not because we think it is a backburner project.


  1. Monitor recent changes to small Wikis via IRC or SWViewer. See Small Wiki Monitoring Team/IRC for details.
  2. Report vandals and page deletions at Global sysops/Requests.
  3. Revert vandalism.
  4. Report link spam for the Spam blacklist.
  5. A list of small wikis can be found here.

Global permissions

Any user in good standing can become a member of the SWMT. However, there are global permissions that may be of help. These include global sysop and global rollback. Please note that candidates for these permissions are expected to have significant experience in the SWMT.


Members of SWMT are requested to create a global user page at Meta, which will show on the wikis where they are editing. Consider using a Babel tag on your user page.

You can add the following userbox to your user page by typing {{User SWMT}}:
