We also have some introductions for visitors from other communities:
Our StartingPoints is a more traditional view of what's here.
Once you are comfortable, sign our guestbook, RecentVisitors, with your real name and then create your very own homepage. If this concept seems crazy, see WhyWikiWorks and WikiFaq.
Before you join, there are three major policies you must agree to:
I just removed absurdly large amounts of spam from the front page. Someone needs to be paying closer attention.
When I try to add the following entry to RecentVisitors:
'''21 September 2011''' -- DavidMeyer. First sign-in in a year! ----
... the edition gets rejected with the following message:
You have triggered the spam filter. If you are posting link spam, give up now. Otherwise, please try and identify the offending link and remove it; if you cannot find it, contact an admin for help.
Is there a bug in the spam filter, or has it be set extra-sensitive to deal with spammers?
I get the same message if I edit RecentVisitors. While commenting or editing the talk page I've no problems. Need to have a deeper look at this over the weekend. Quite busy at the moment... -- MarkusLude
Hi, Markus. Thanks for looking into it. It's no rush. I'm glad to see Meatball Wiki hasn't been completely abandoned.
Also, I think there's a bug in the comment form, too. When I typed the above paragraph into the comment input box the a page with the following message was returned:
Your post contains a link. To prevent spam, please write the magic secret, passion, here:
Typing the word "passion" into the input box and resubmitting the comment produced the exact same magic secret prompt page.
Note that not only is the magic secret prompt form not being handled incorrectly, getting to that page in the first place was an error since my comment does not in fact contain any links.
The problem with editing the RecentVisitors page should be fixed now
