Thank you very much. A very good summary of a number of options out there. It's getting tiresome having to edit out all the linkspam. I didn't check yesterday and it was a massive spam attack. "Thank you" to Mcka and ProfessaFresh for keeping an eye out. XPRimNT 23:40, 23 August 2007 (CEST)

oh god yes, please implement.


I have implemented ConfirmEdit as a measure against spam. Let's see if it's enough. -- Mactijn user 23:32, 23 September 2007 (CEST)

Thank you so much! If there will be spam again, FancyCaptcha addon for ConfirmEdit provides better CAPTCHAs, but needs python for creating the images when installing. Or even better - the CAPTCHAs from reCAPTCHA are not broken yet, AFAIK. There is a reCAPTCHA extension for mediawiki, which is based on ConfirmEdit. It does not need python or something like that. The basic ConfirmEdit uses very simple CAPTCHAs which are not very difficult to break. -- mcka

thanks for the captchas! ProfessaFresh 14:29, 25 September 2007 (CEST)
