Maybe you should change the permissions to edit/create sites on the BA Wiki, since its spammed now.

example: http://wiki.betaarchive.co.uk/index.php?title=Talk:Main_Page

Thats the only page its being spammed on, and I keep removing everything, but they keep spamming back. I don't know how to use wiki nor do I intend to learn how, because it doesn't get used enough. If someone wants to do it for me thats fine by me, just contact me.

I'm no mediawiki expert, but could some of these methods help?

I believe this spamming is stupid. Our ignorant comrades have insulted us again. Andy, we need a more fanatic theme. I think that if we had created a more effective theme for a start, people wouldn't feel like spamming.

On another note, implementing Captcha is pretty neat, I didn't realise this inefficient php billboard system was able to implement that so easily, very impressive Andy.
