Wiki Spam
« on: February 21, 2008, 08:21:35 am »
I just removed a bunch of spam from the wiki and noticed from the changelogs that it is an ongoing problem.

There is a simple Captcha extension available that should prevent the bot submitted spam at:

perhaps it could help.
Asus M2NSLI Deluxe
AMD Athlon 64 X2 BE-2400 2.3GHz
Asus EN6200TC512 Graphic Card
WinTV PVR-150 MCE
(2) Samsung T166 SATA II 500GB
Corsair TwinX 2GB CL5 DDR2-800

Sounds like a good idea, something has to be done about this.

Captcha in wiki is not displayed:
Code: [Select]
This reCAPTCHA key isn't authorized for the given domain
As result there is no way to post external link.
