Fighting spam: reCAPTCHA installed on the MySQL Forge Wiki

Today, I again spent about an hour to revert changes made by spambots on various MySQL Forge Wiki pages. As I was really sick of this, I now installed a new plugin: reCAPTCHA - this will hopefully raise the bar for spambots to create new user accounts automatically for spamming the Wiki. If you are a registered user already, you will probably not notice the change - by default, CAPTCHAs are only displayed on the following events:

  • New user registration
  • Anonymous edits that contain new external links
  • Brute-force password cracking

Let's hope it helps! Please let me know if you still experience spam problems on the Wiki.
