From now on you have to be registered and logged in to edit pages. I tried to avoid this in the past, but it will lower the spam a little. Also I've removed ReCAPTCHA, and instead installed a q/a based captcha, which requires new users to answer a question to edit pages. Currently there are 3 questions the system randomly chooses between:
  • Which game is this Wiki about?
  • Type full word: Morrigh...
  • Type full word: Neam...
If you have ideas for more feel free to post here. But they should be answerable by newbies.

Hmm, I think this is a good idea, except the "Neam...." one.

I mean, no one would know that one until they're at G10, right? (which takes some people quite a bit after Genesis)

But I digress, not much newbies like that would register anyway. (I think)

This new captcha seems extremely efficient. Not a single new user or spam edit for the last 2 days. Should've done that years ago =<

This Captcha is actually getting a bit annoying, even as a logged in moderator, I have to enter it with every edit >w<

For some reason nobody seems to get promoted to autoconfirmed anymore... oh well, let's see how good this capture is and remove it for edits. Bots would still have to type it in on registering.
