Hey Gents,

I'm not that great with Wiki stuff. I can barely figure out how to message someone on there (it's the talk page, right?). Anyway, could you guys try and find out what anti-spam measures are available to us and I'll implement them? A captcha would be convenient if it's there. I'm looking into merging the accounts tables, but that might take a little bit.

Thanks,
Roy

cool.gif I think the captcha system is up and running for registration by default. I posted about hoping it would start operating soon, went and started the registration process on the forums and there was a captcha at the bottom of the screen. So I'm assuming that it works. Obviously I didn't complete the process, so I can't confirm that it actually works all the way, but it is present. When the after effects of my self-ban on the wiki wear off I'll start the new registration process there and see if it's really there also.

I'm quite glad about the self-ban. I unbanned myself almost immediately but the system is still banning new accounts from my IP. So that part of banning appears to work. biggrin.gif It apparently takes about 24 hours after an unban before you can create another account from the same IP.

As regards the user to user messages, yes it is through the talk page. I've finally realised what that mysterious message on Wikipedia pages means: the one about putting ~~~~, 4 tildes, at the end of your comment. It is an automatic return address and date stamp. Justclick on the link and you go off to the user that left a comment.
