Anti-spam suggestions

I'd like to suggest setting the wiki to disallow editing without being logged in, since most of the spam appears to be coming from anonymous edits.

As for the spambots that do manage to create accounts, I've found a reCAPTCHA MediaWiki extention that might help. --Poochy 21:36, 10 November 2007 (EST)

I myself have said the same thing numerous times, but alas, Caffeine doesn't wish to enable that. As long as there ones that are willing to constantly "delete/revert/delete/revert/delete/revert" etc..., I suppose that it's unnecassary then.

Right now, we have a system where if an edit includes a link, it asks you to do something. It doesn't stop the random spam edits, though. The problem with something more intricate is that it would be annoying to people who are trying to be helpful. And yes, Caffeine has veoted the idea of forcing people to be logged in before, and will likely continue to do so... --Lardarse 14:17, 11 November 2007 (EST)

We rarely get links, so that part seems to be working. Is there a mediawiki extension that could detect the gibberish? It's not as simple to detect as links, but it is pretty consistent. Something like 7-14 characters added, usually containing a huge consonant cluster. This could eliminate most of the spam. --Colour Thief 18:44, 11 November 2007 (EST)

Might Bad Behavior help? --tepples 21:53, 11 November 2007 (EST)
I did try Bad Behavior, but then Digital said he could get on the wiki anymore, so I uninstalled it. Are there any alternatives? 09:36, 12 November 2007 (EST)

I think we need better CAPTCHAs. The Fucking-Fucker 18:09, 24 July 2016 (PDT)

looking for an article on tetris

It talked about this guy and how he became a tetris champion. Very soulful. Talked about competition, gymnastics, his girlfriend, etc. Was in his uni website. Read it years ago. Unsigned comment

Yeah, seems vaguely familiar... 17:20, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

--Wormeyman 04:16, 18 May 2009 (UTC) So can we get this page protected please!

Granted --Nicholas 12:25, 7 June 2009 (UTC)

Update 24th July 2009

At times during this weekend (and especially in the next few hours), things may start to look a little strange around here. In particular, playfield diagrams may look broken for a while. Work is in progress on the system that generates these diagrams. Hopefully, it will be completed soon. --Pineapple 07:43, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Update: This has been mostly completed. Comments on the new images are welcomed. There is still one other thing being discussed. Please take a look at Diagram Background Comparison if you have a moment, and then leave a comment there. --Pineapple 23:59, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

CSS Fixes

Just a suggestion to fix a problem I've been noticing on some pages while using the default Monobook skin. 1. the footer of the site ends up being covered by the content; 2. the content doesn't always fill the entire page, leaving a gray area to the right of it. I have the a very simple fix below:

In "#content" remove "position: absolute; z-index: 2;".
In "#p-cactions li a" change "padding: 0 .8em .3em;" to "padding: 0 .8em .1em;"
In "#p-cactions li a:hover" remove "z-index: 3;" and add "padding: 0 .8em .3em;"

The second and third lines are there to fix a minor bug that happens with the navigation bars at the top of a page, they end up losing their borders at the bottom. --RanAS 07:10, 8 September 2016 (PDT)
