Hello,

the spam protection of the wiki is gone. Spammers already captured it :wacko:

Please return it asap ;) Thanks!

Looking into it right now. Captcha on signup is still there but I left the misplaced box empty and it let me register all the same :(. Is there normally a captcha when editing?

Hi!

yep there were
- captchas at logging in
- captchas on posting an edit
and only registered users could edit.

Tonight there was again a huge mass of spammers :star_smile:

Yo!

I full protected most of the pages (although it may be worth downing them to semi-protected, you decide :wacko:!) until we can get all the captchas back up and working.

Fixed! The extension used broke when they did an update to the wiki. I scrapped the existing extension as it required file edits and implemented the reCAPTCHA extension.

Small rundown:
-Edits require captcha
-Page creations require captcha
-New accounts require captcha
-Bad logins require captcha
-Sysops exempt
