Spam attack on the doc website



  • The multi Wan page has been spammed, and lost the back half of the document as a result, I've reverted it to the last good version I could see (6th May), and I think I've re-applied the edits that should be there….



  • It has been under a constant attack the last few weeks. We really need to get security at the doc wiki tightened  >:(



  • This could work

    And we will help digitize books, similar to the topic in this video ( I do think he makes money :D )

  • We have a fresh wiki install staged with all the good content brought over and some new content. This time we have it extremely locked down because we're tired of dealing with the spam. I don't think we're even going to allow people to sign up for accounts. We will be ditching the existing doc wiki within a week or two.

    That's good news, I hope I'll still be able to contribute…  :D

    Absolutely, even if I need to manually create accounts for those who want write access.
