Re: Wiki Spam again

I think the captcha for unregistered users is a good idea.
I started editing the wiki as unregistered. Now, Im registered, but it is good to be able edit a couple of things without the need of been registered user, it encourages the occasional user to add/change few details of what hi is reading.
We could avoid the unregistered users editors if there were any other way to capture the occacional user input having a "comments area" in each page like PHP manual in www.php.net but we dont have it.
Im up for the captcha in unregistered and the captcha in the registration form.
We need to find a way to add some backend scripting to import/export the handbook, add navigation bars, etc.. Wiki is not ever the best way to read something, it helps a lot for one little punctual doubt but no way replaces a book-like format. Some times you want to print maybe a chapter like "network config" becouse you will not have access to the wiki for a while, or want to avoid the navigation reading a pdf-like format in a PC with no internet connection, there is a lot of people who doesnt have 2 PC to install DFBSD in one while reading the docs in the other one, or someone who use a not broadband connection, so want to download and read offline, etc....

Require a second password for registering.

Those interested can ask on one of our lists or one of the wiki admins directly.
