Deleting wiki articles

Decided to look through the recent edits list and was appalled at the amount of spam pages created.  Is there anyway to alert someone to them or to delete them?

We regularly check and clean up when we have time for it; no need for any action on your side.
We'll also be moving to admin-approval for new accounts soon™.

For other administrative matters either contact one of the admins or post in this forum.

Muchas gracias, amigo.  I saw that you wound up deleting a lot of them very quickly after I made this post.

Spam in the wiki has been a problem for quite awhile, from what I've noticed. Every single day there are accounts created and pages made just for spam. Cygma and Skywalker do a great job of keeping up with it every day, but obviously they can't watch it 24/7.

It's too bad it happens at all. Hopefully the admin-approval will take care of the problem and not become a terrible hunt through account creation requests to find that one legitimate user.
