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

Oh ok cool. I tried to unblock you, but I have no idea what I'm doing there and I dont want to break anything. Maybe Meyer knows how to work it.

If you guys find anything that can help you manage the Wiki, let me know and I'll do my best to add them.

cool.gif No problem! I unblocked myself immediately and the log in works fine. The ip ban from creating new accounts runs out by 11 pm my time. About 5 hours before your time I believe. It is a miniscule inconvenience.

I've banned a fair number of bots so far. I don't see too many new ones appearing yet, and the unbanned (as yet) ones are on a break at the moment. I'll keep looking...

You never know I might actually get to do some proper editing soon. TitchyLinux is surely worth a page or two? biggrin.gif

Three points of information:

1. I had another look at the registration process on the forum: the captcha system is there claiming to be in operation.
2. I downloaded some attachments and there was no problem with just clicking on it. I'll check an image soon.
3. Users can enable email on the Wiki. It's an option in preferences. It does a validation email when you save the preferences and you click on the link in the message you receive.

Ya the forums I have down fine. It's the Wiki that I want a captcha for. I don't think there's on there, is there? Right now there's nothing stopping new bots from registering right?
