[Noisebridge-discuss] is spam on the wiki still a problem?

Two different problems. Anonymous/new accounts vandalizing pages, and massive amounts of random accounts being created, then doing nothing (it seems).

I guess the latter issue would sort of be "spam" but it has nothing in common with random comments that are filtered by Akismet or whatever. If you were interested in curbing these random sign ups, it'd probably require installing some custom MediaWiki modules.

That's about as much as I can contribute. I don't know who has access to the server that hosts the MediaWiki installation - that'd be the person to talk to.

I happen to have alot of experience nearly eliminating all spam from several highly trafficked wordpress sites I’ve developed and admin’d for over the years. In the past I’ve been far too busy to attempt tackling such a problem but recently my workload has been relatively light and thought I’d offer taking a shot at it while I had the opportunity.
