Fighting the spam

reCAPTCHA helps, but not enough. Captchas are outsourced for a couple of cents and the black hat spammers are still making money this way... I've recently seen similar spam on a couple of some wikis I'm maintaining. I suggest setting $wgSpamRegexp in LocalSettings.php to something like

$wgSpamRegex = "/trojan|diet|weight-loss|jobs|career|job|viagra|porn|phentermine|free-resumes|playmate|erotic|valium|xanax|FIELD.(OTHER|MESSAGE)|babacar/i";

This is a bit annoying, but it seems the only way to keep an open wiki... Until the spammers give up. On Hitchwiki and Trashwiki the community has been very fast with deleting spam so the spammers kinda gave up I think. Anyway, I think this is a fab project and if you give me admin rights here I'll help you with your fight :) Guaka 00:07, 23 April 2011 (UTC)

RSS feed caching

I think it would be good to find out how to cache the RSS feed on the frontpage. Guaka 00:14, 23 April 2011 (UTC)
