We are still actively working on the spam issue.
Jesus christ, why do we need Google Captcha. Besides training evil AIs, it is a nuisance of a service that doesn't work right. --Se7en(1) (talk) 23:50, 30 December 2018 (EST)
I absolutely agree, but look at Recent Changes, we still have some spam getting through... without it, the wiki (and db) would be inundated with spam. If you have a better option/idea to fight spam on MediaWiki please I am open to suggestions...--Bananafish (talk) 12:54, 31 December 2018 (EST)
Running list of ideas:
- $wgSpamRegex - doing this already
- StopFormSpam - worth looking into, will likely have to disable cloudflare
- ConfirmEdit - doing this already with Captcha NoRecaptcha, may be worth going back to questy captcha with a lot more questions...
- Clean Talk - looks similar to StopForumSpam but possibly not updated for 1.3.1
