It's alright; it's an easy mistake -w-;

I've just changed the security questions allowing registrations and posting for new members. Here's to hoping they'll be hard enough to bar bots from here while easy enough so that no real person misses their chance of joining. ^^;

We've got a third one, in the form of a single post, and s/he might be a pedophile, fun!

Well, this is a first: Spanbots on the Wiki. Like, an influx of hundreds of new articles and vandalized articles :\

Maybe we should put some sort of verification system in place to cut down on this, or maybe bring back the "must be approved by admin to edit" system of old?

Sadly I only have forum moderation powers and not any wiki admin powers. :( I've seen some wikis include a verification system or require admin approval before making any changes and have that work out.

Massive banhammer -_-
If your account was created after the 26th of July on the Wiki there is a good chance you got caught into the storm.

Don't know if this fits in here but,
a user with the name "cybercuate" is posting 2letter "spam messages" to several threads...

So if anyone reads this message, do check him and do your conclusions.
dunno if it's meaningful, but this user created a thread in this forum late last year. something about a facebook page. :0
