Can this please be closed now. It's been 1.5 months and the wiki has become a playground for vandals and trolls. Thanks. :)

Hello developers? It has been two months since this project should have been closed. Can anyone please close it? As mentioned above, the project is becoming infested with vandals and spammers. It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could step up and handle this request. Thank you.

The wiki has been locked.

The wiki has been locked.

It seems the wiki is locked, but it's not listed in http://noc.wikimedia.org/conf/closed.dblist

It's also rather difficult to tell who did the closing, so I'm re-opening this (at least temporarily).

The wiki isn't closed. Pathoschild implemented a confusing hack using the site notice[1] and the title blacklist[2] to prevent all non-admin changes to the site. The site still needs to be properly locked.

Actually this isn't a bug request for a lock, it's a request for closure. Per the consensus among editors at meta, this project is to be closed. I wanted to ask Rob who recently closed several other projects, to close this one as well. If anyone can get a hold of him, please ask him to properly close this project.
