  • Hello. Looks like you are struggling with filtering the spammers... How about to disable the account creation page once again? Otherwise the spammers will attack this wiki forever... --S2KTS (talk) 02:00, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
    • The main reason for keeping registration open is to lower the barrier of entry for people that want to fix issues or contribute to the wiki. The more steps a user has to take, the less likely they are to go through them. Using AbuseFilter and Google's ReCaptcha, I can limit the number of SPAM posts to almost nothing without hindering legitimate users. It just takes a bit of trial and error. --B4ndit (talk) 07:00, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
      • Thanks for letting me know the reason! Hope you will find great way to avoid spamming :-) --S2KTS (talk) 14:01, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
        • Would you be interested in being an administrator for the wiki? There aren't a whole lot of volunteers maintaining it right now and you're definitely the most active. --B4ndit (talk) 15:00, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
          • Thanks for your offer. I would like to be for sure ;) --S2KTS (talk) 15:23, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
            • You are now an admin (sysop) on the wiki. With great power comes great responsibility... or something. --B4ndit (talk) 16:25, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
              • Haha, I am aware of that. Thank you so much! I will start from fixing some headers then. --S2KTS (talk) 16:28, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
