Default Shut down the Wiki

I shut down the Wiki. I got a Google notice there was really bad spam in there, like serious, so as a drastic measure I shut it down.

Give me till Monday to get it back online. I will upgrade the software and lock it down.

I need some volunteers that can manually approve access so we can stop spammers.

I can clear out the spam, I got a Chilling Effects notice so I know where it's at.

It's just that we need to lock down the Wiki on an ongoing basis and do approval only accounts, so each account will need to be approved. We need some Admins to help out there.

As I said I have the time. Just going to school 2 days a week right now no work in the near future planned. I have also been an admin on a Jeep forum for a few years till the owner started using the funds raised from memberships to pay his phone and electric bill and stopped paying for the server/domain name.

TXBRew.
I have a plethora of time available to help clean and keep the Wiki updated. Since I got disabled I have become interested in all things brewing so I would be thrilled to help and kill a few spams in the process. So please put my name on the list of helpers on the Wiki or other projects that need help.
