It has been brought to my attention we've got a bucketload of Wiki Spam at the moment.

I'll be investigating Options as soon as possible (probably a user creation question like we have here at the forum) but in the mean time, if anyone has Wiki skills and time, I'd greatly appreciate help in keeping the spam off the Wiki.

Big thanks to Veistran for all the clean up work already done!!!!!

If you need someone to help out with the wiki I would be glad to help out.

I have some standard wiki-editing skills, and have a bit of time to spend online during the day.

:)

There is now a 'captcha' question to keep the spam-bots away from our precious wiki.

It uses the same question as here at the forums (who is Character #1 at (and Creator of!) Kingdom of Loathing)

It will ask you for the answer on new account creation, or if you edit a page and add a new URL to the page.

Theoretically you can avoid that check in future by "validating your e-mail address" which you can do from the preferences page. Let me know how that works.

It's working, but it seems slightly flakey. It wanted to give the 'help text' in Chinese. I fixed that by deleting all languages but English.
It sometimes throws up an error at the top (regarding the language issue I think) -- if you get that, let me know (cassandra7@gmail.com), and what it says, if you can.
