I was asked the other day to enable account creation so that a person could sign up with ARMwiki. I did so, and a pile of dummy accounts (for spam) were created as well.
As a result of this, I have hidden the account creation page (it's less objectionable than disabling that entirely!).
If you would like to create an account on ARMwiki, please drop me an email at
uk and I'll send you the link.
Account reconciliation (2012/12/19)
Soon, possibly this weekend (22nd/23rd December), I am going to go through the user list and remove users where:
- The gender of the email address does not match the gender of the user name (i.e. email is "richard@blahblah" and the user ID is "Lucy Blahblah").
- The email address is clearly spam-related ("curlyhairextensions@blahblah").
- The user record was last touched within ~20 minutes of creation (i.e. account created, user never logged in again)
Hopefully this and the above tweaks to the PHP will permit ARMwiki to have a tidy, sane, list of real users enjoying the facilities without the need for constant policing.
Keep your fingers crossed, for if this works out, I will restore the email-verified-gives-edit-access so you don't need to contact me for edit rights.
