My username is the same as this account, but I usually have issues with the Linux version of Skype.
Do you use anything like Discord?
Yes I do. tdis8629#4089 for Discord
More Ad Bots
Yeah, tried to make a moderator bot, but not sure if I can do anything without wiki source access.
I just tested out different ways a Non-Mod can post links without the captcha: They can check minor edit or do a preview.
Thanks for letting me know. All 4 have been banned.
@IronClark: You can set pages to have "minor edits" automatically ticked in the preferences menu. I recommend telling Plornt of the exploit. (I am at my nephew's 1st birthday party, so I can moderate, but it is a tad tedious)
Plornt is out for a bit on personal issues, I think we are going have to just deal with the spam for now.
Yeah, for the time being I think we should just keep the wolves at bay, once everyone has time then we should discuss better security.
I concur. At least they are infrequent. The last one was a little more than a week ago, not counting the troll
Response to Ad Bots
I thought that the confirmation was only removed for moderators, but it seems I can post external links without conformation as well...might have to ask Plornt about this.
Did you preview your changes before posting them? I've noticed that if you post an outgoing link from the preview page or with the post marked as a minor change it doesn't ask for conformation. I don't know if it's a bug or not, but it makes sense since a bot wouldn't do that.
