FAQ Started

Here is a little something that I wrote up. Hopefully, it'll answer many of a newbie's questions. If there are more, I guess you should ask in #WikiTI and hope that somebody answers and updates this FAQ. Gambit 17:02, 3 Apr 2005 (PDT)

Vandalism

Hooray! Our first spam! Much as I hate to say this, you might want to consider protecting this page -- it was presumably a target because most, if not all, MediaWiki sites will have a 'Help:Contents', so the robots know it's here. --FloppusMaximus 13:30, 18 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Mmmm, I drew the same conclusion so I did protect it. I did an RDNS on each of the IPs, and only one resolved ([17:27:44] * Dns resolved 196.7.0.160 to ge1-0.cc1.cpt1.alter.net). We should probably send a permalink to the vandalism to abuse@alter.net or somesuch, but it'd be best if it could have an @denglend.net return address -- Dan, you paying attention to anything anymore?

Also, we could go the template route -- have, perhaps, {{Help Contents}} as the sole content of this page, save for an HTML comment telling people where to go to edit it. Andy Janata 14:44, 18 Oct 2005 (PDT)
Maybe you should only allow edits from users that are logged in. Or would that be too restrictive? --Kalimero 05:28, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)
We could do that, but that would requiring looking to see where that setting IS. :) Andy Janata 11:13, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)
