Silver Surfer did some cleaning up a few months ago as we were under attack and he blocked a few IP addresses. Guess he needs to do some more work.

Will take a look later on tonight.

May be handy to "padlock" some of the topics in the Wiki that are complete i.e. the ones where there is nothing to add??

Damn bots! After a gogle search on the subject, apparently people are spamming wiki's in order to get their google pagepank up. Is there no way to integrate a captcha image into the wiki submission form/script?

That's one for Silver Surfer to look into I guess. Out of my league if it requires any tinkering with the server side of the Wiki :)

I take it that the following "people" were responsible. Thanks for editing their crap Zorro and now they're banned!

There is a captcha extension, I'll look at installing it. Hopefully I will get it done during the weekend. :)
