Spam Users issue
« on: 29 June 2009, 11:38 »

Maybe some has noticed, but recently we are having a lot of "fake users" registering just to spam. Problem is they don't seem to be bot, since I've recently setup a simple antibot feature, that should prevent bot subscription and editing.
I will try to find out how I can setup a protection even against this, the only thing I can think of now is Admin confirmation for user subscription, but I'm not keen with this kind of actions because they are, IMO, completely against the wiki concept.
If anybody has an Idea, they are welcome!

OK, this issue should have been solved. Now let's get rido of those already subscribed spammers. If only mediawiki wasn't this paranoid on deletions....
