|Re: [eclipse.org-committers] Wiki vandalism, broken database server|
Hi Folks, I just wanted to update you on the current state of wiki moderation. Based on the comments here I've created a 'contributors' group which allows its members to bypass moderation. Using Mediawikis auto-promote feature users will be transparently added to that group if they meet the following conditions: 1) They have more than 10 edits 2) Their account hasn't been banned. That means that most of you will no longer experience moderation. New users will still be subject to moderation until they pass the 10 edit mark. Fortunately the moderation extension holds edits separately so spammers shouldn't be able to game things by simply proposing a huge pile of edits(only approved edits increase the actual edit count). I've asked a couple of people to test this and it seems to work as I expect, so I think we're in good shape now, but if you see spam please report it. -Matt.
