I saw how others had used html for routeboxes and so I figured out how to create a table in html and add a picture and some other stuff. Click edit to see the code.
<table style="float: right; margin-left: 1em; margin-bottom: 0.5em; background: silver; width: 242px; border: #000075 solid 2.5px">
<tr><td>[[:Image:AHeneen Paris.JPG|center|238px]]
<tr><td><div style="float: right; border:solid navy 1px; margin: 1px;">
{| cellspacing="0" style="width: 238px; background: skyblue;"
:::: It probably wouldn't hurt to give this issue wider exposure in the [[Pub]] since it hasn't just been your account - I just deleted a spambot page credited to [[User:AndreCarrotflower]]. I've also raised this issue at [[Wikitravel talk:How to handle unwanted edits#Important - blocking spambots]]. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 00:15, 17 July 2012 (EDT)
 
Quick question - with one exception I haven't seen any evidence that the "spambot impersonating real users" issue is still a problem since the 1.17.4 upgrade. That one exception is from your account today, where the user creation log has an entry [http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Special%3ALog&type=newusers&user=AHeneen&page=&year=&month=-1] saying:
 
<pre>14:17, 28 July 2012 AHeneen created new account User:Marionw ‎ (asdf123456)</pre>
 
Did you by any chance actually create a new account? If not there may still be a security hole somewhere. And if you did, how did you do it? Was it just a test of some sort? -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 01:16, 29 July 2012 (EDT)
 
:No. I didn't create any new accounts. When the problem first arose, I got one of those three messages every time I tried to log in. I've seen it only a handful of times the last few days. When I have gotten a message in the last few days, its the second screenshot ("Login error. There seems to be a problem..."). I can't remember if I got the message 7/28 or not. I didn't get the message when I recently logged in. Must still be a security hole then. [[User:AHeneen|AHeneen]] 01:44, 29 July 2012 (EDT)
 
:: Thanks for the quick response. The number of questionable edits since the upgrade definitely seem to be reduced, and it's possible that it may take a while for old sessions to expire completely before the problem is fully resolved (I think cookies expire after 30 days...), but I guess the issue isn't completely resolved yet. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] &bull; ([[User talk:Wrh2|talk]]) &bull; 02:03, 29 July 2012 (EDT)
 
:::My browser deletes cookies when I close it. When I logged in tonight, I got the message in the second screenshot yet again. It showed I was logged in as [[User:GUrLaLiEn]], who seems to be a legitimate account (not spambot). When I entered my password the second time, I was logged in as my account. Definitely seems to be either a security hole or some database error. [[User:AHeneen|AHeneen]] 01:09, 30 July 2012 (EDT)
 
:::Happened yet again. Got message in first screenshot (re:cookies) after logging in. On that page, in the top right it was shown that I was logged in as [[User:Ravikiran r]]. After entering my password again on this second screen, I was logged into my account. [[User:AHeneen|AHeneen]] 01:23, 31 July 2012 (EDT)
 
Yesterday the cache was cleared to allow the patch changes to propagate through the site. As it rebuilds, the site will slowly return to normal speed and the hope is that the spambot spooling issue will be resolved. Please let me know if this doesn't appear to be the case.--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] [[User talk:IBobi|talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/IBobi|email]] 18:28, 31 July 2012 (EDT)
 
:I have added a bug report here [http://wikitravel.org/shared/Tech:Spambots Spambots] and added it to [http://wikitravel.org/shared/Top_bugs Top Bugs]; please make any additional reports on this issue in its bug report page. If you can help flesh out the description of the bug or its behavior, please add them to the page.--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] [[User talk:IBobi|talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/IBobi|email]] 19:27, 6 August 2012 (EDT)
 
== Migrated? ==
 
Hello. I'm sorry to see your message that you have migrated to another site. Your contributions have been very good at Wikitravel and we'd love to see you return.
 
Meanwhile, do not message Wikiavel contributors in an attempt to have them leave this site. Thank you,--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] [[User talk:IBobi|talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/IBobi|email]] 00:18, 30 August 2012 (EDT)

Does [http://wikitravel.org/en/User_talk:%D0%A5%D1%83%D0%B9_%D0%BC%D0%BE%D1%80%D0%B6%D0%BE%D0%B2%D1%8B%D0%B9] need to be blocked? What would you do with him?--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] [[User talk:IBobi|talk]] [[Special:EmailUser/IBobi|email]] 13:52, 18 September 2012 (EDT)
 
:I thought about blocking him, but just ignored the matter the last few days. I have clearly explained why his edits are wrong on the Russia & Tiraspol talk pages. Since several edits in support of these changes were made on the Russia & Talk:Russia pages, I'm not sure if this user has been editing without logging in to make it seem like there are several others in agreement or what exactly is going on. I protected the Russia page for 1 month to stop the edit war. If this user keeps up, he should probably be blocked. [[User:AHeneen|AHeneen]] 23:04, 18 September 2012 (EDT)
 
==Thank you==
Hi AHeneen! Thank you for helping with patrolling the site! Best, [[User:IBAlex|IBAlex]] 13:14, 29 October 2012 (EDT)
 
==Adminship==
As you already know, many admins that were formerly active here at Wikitravel have left for pastures new in the last year.
 
Although IBadmins fight a heroic battle against spam, I believe we need more admins from the community.
 
Would you support my application to be an admin?
 
I believe I know current polices as well as anyone [http://wikitravel.org/en/Special:ActiveUsers currently active]. --[[User:118dot93dot73dot30|<font color="#FF3366">118</font>]][[User talk:118dot93dot73dot30|<i>dot93dot73dot30</i>]] 02:14, 14 April 2013 (EDT)
 
==[http://wikitravel.org/en/Wikitravel:Administrators#Ending_administrator_privileges Ending administrator's rights]==
Hello AHeneen! I hope you are doing well. I haven't seen any contributions from you since [http://wikitravel.org/en/Special:Contributions/AHeneen 23 Nov 2012] so I have to revoke your admin rights. We would like to see our admins active over here. Should you consider coming back and helping us administrate Wikitravel, please let me know. I wish you all the best, [[User:IBAlex|IBAlex]] ([[User talk:IBAlex|talk]]) 15:01, 30 April 2013 (EDT)
