It's getting spammed, that's why...

I've started reverting the changes...

It‘d probably a good idea to disable the account creation that currently allows anyone to create accounts with full edit rights and w/o email-check etc. Iirc this was disabled when I looked into the wiki last year (aka updated&fixed it), only forum accounts could be converted into Wiki accounts. There seems to be an (un)healthy and steady flow of new spam-accounts minute by minute: http://www.atari-wiki.com/index.php/Sp ... m&limit=50

Alas, the relentless SPAM attack continues unabated while I watch and can’t really do much (as I am just an ordinary user on the Wiki)... :(

I have disabled the site for the time being. Not sure when I'll get around to looking at it as I'm stacked at the moment.

You know this site and their suggestions? https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Combating_spam

A lot of them (StopForumSpam and ConfirmEdit for example) do a relly good job
