Wiki is Broken

Postby Darvin on Thu Jul 19, 2012 10:16 pm

I'm getting an error whenever I try to make an edit. It looks like you installed a captcha to deal with the spam, but didn't hook it up quite right so you just get an internal error whenever you try to make edits.

That said, it has succeeded in keeping spam off the wiki :lol:

Ack, we'll look into this. It might have something to do with the changes I had to hard-code to get captchas working in the first place.

The captcha plugin we were using has become obsolete. We've changed it to a random question .... hope they're not too hard.

If you want different questions/answers, post your suggestions in this thread.

Q) What is the name of the dwarf fighter on the Desktop Dungeons splash page?

Easy for humans, that just need to go to the DD splash page to figure out the answer, but a machine wouldn't be able to figure it out (at least no program on the complexity level of a spam-bot).
