Anonymous edits disabled

I've gone ahead and disabled anonymous edits due to the high volume of wiki spamming. I'll be implementing some kind of anti-spam measures (most likely a CAPTCHA) before turning anonymous edits back on. I hate to do this, but it's starting to get out of control. -- Dossy 08:11, 24 March 2006 (EST)

Since I know the spammers can create accounts (I just deleted ~600 of them), I've changed things so that only users who have a confirmed email address can make edits. You can set your email address via Special:Preferences then confirm it with Special:Confirmemail. -- Dossy 08:29, 24 March 2006 (EST)

I've now implemented a CAPTCHA in order to log in or create a new account. This should effectively end the spam. When I can, I'll add the CAPTCHA to the editing page, so that anonymous edits can be turned back on, but I don't know when I'll have the time to do that. -- Dossy 10:50, 28 March 2006 (EST)
