Bots have ravaged the eve dev Wikipedia, making it look worse than after a night out in Glasgow. Can someone get in contact with someone able to fix it?

You can just create an account and fix it yourself.
I took a quick peek and can't find any of it though...

Wiki pages can be protected against unauthorized edits. Unfortunately, there needs to be someone to do it. Who maintains eve-id anyway?

I tried to clean it up as much as I could yesterday, I'm keeping an eye on the main page at least. The problem is, the spam is rampant, and normal users don't have access to deleting pages (can only blank pages). They're also signing up a new account for every spam page. As for finding it, just hit the random page link, high probability it'll be a spam page.

I've heard the owner went MIA, but could be mistaken.

I think most have started using neweden dev instead: https://neweden-dev.com/Main_Page
