Rules

Before you get carried away, I think it would be a good idea to establish certain rules about how this reorganization, and then any subsequent editing, is done. In fact, I would prefer to see no reorganization of any kind until these rules have been established. I would begin with working out the following:

  1. Naming Conventions - This would need to cover object, article, category, and subcategory naming.
  2. Nomenclature - How to categorize and subcategorize.
  3. Roadmap - I think that we need to establish a roadmap for reorganization, and even an order of reorganization.

I recommend we begin by creating our own village pump similar to wikipedia's. What does anyone else think? -- Scjessey 05:02, 11 Feb 2006 (PST)

Since there is one now, sort of, we should point to it. -- Pseudomonad 08:32, 8 Jun 2006 (PDT)

MediaWiki

You're running a pretty old version of MediaWiki here. You should really consider upgrading to either the latest stable 1.4.x or the latest 1.6.x just for the security fixes. Dori 17:34, 1 Jun 2006 (PDT)

No Kidding, this place is getting jammed full of spam and spam users. Fix it!! Mrsdonovan (talk) 15:37, 18 September 2012 (PDT)

The best way to fix that is to use mw:Extension:Asirra. It is an extremely effective anti-spam tool. However, I would warn the DreamHost sysadmins to verify that the extension is working properly, because every wiki I've ever seen that tried to use that extension ran into a problem of it also rejecting users who got the CAPTCHA right. You have to keep playing around with the configuration until you get it to work properly. I somehow got it to work on all my wikis, although I'm not sure how.
It's also important to set up the configuration settings properly. E.g., it should be configured to require a CAPTCHA for new account creation, so we don't get all these spam new accounts. Nathan Larson (talk) 05:42, 22 September 2012 (PDT)
