What common values do wikis share? Is this the right expression or should we better write common attributes. Do we need a definition?

--Christoph 27.08.06

Ok here's a place now to discuss our common values Ohana:WikiPrinciples

--Christoph 07-Sep-2006

Minor point - should you not require people to log in to make edits to this site? If you don't it will eventually get spammed.

-- MartinBudden, 2006-09-11

Isn't it a wiki? How do you want to receive feedback if you don't allow everyone to post? And spam can be easily reverted, right?

-- RadomirDopieralski, 2006-09-11

I'm not sure where to ask this question, so I'm asking it here. I want to correct a stupid error on my part: when I created my profile I misunderstood the term "wikiname" so I just typed "martinswiki". I now understand it means "nickname for use on this wiki" and so would like to change this to "MartinBudden", however there seems to be no option on my profile to do so. Can someone tell me how to do this (or alternatively, can an administrator do this for me)?

-- MartinBudden, 2006-Sep-11

Thanks for Wiki Creole! I have been looking for practical information about wikis and wiki implementations and have found it here. I'm using the information to build myself a personal wiki to create and manage documentation, tech notes, and reports etc. for work. It looks like fun. If it seems useful, I might provide some feedback on what I learn going through the process.

This wiki is now getting quite a bit of spam. There's enough spam to make the Recent Changes page useless. I repeat my plea - can we require people to login to make posts? (Note that I am not saying that we should not allow anyone to post as RadomirDopieralski seemed to have assumed in his reply to my original request, only that people have to login to post. Anyone can register for a login.)

-- MartinBudden, 2006-Dec-17

I would second this! Sure it's easy enough to revert a page, but what happens when someone new comes across it in between? Another good reason to require people to login to make posts is to avoid null entries in the Recent Changes page etc. I made an accidental null entry earlier today (Talk.Creole 0.3 02:00:06 null) when I made a change and hadn't realized I wasn't logged in.

-- MarkWharton, 2006-12-17

Ok, so what would happen if someone comes here and sees a vandalized page? If e knows about wikis (and chances are e does, as this wiki is dedicated to some pretty specialized topics), e just reverts the spam (provided e doesn't have to create an account and log in for that) and in the end feels good for doing something nice. If e doesn't understand the basic concepts of wikis -- well, e moves on, possibly to one of the pages linked from this site that have good explanation what a wiki is.

Locking this wiki behind a wall of account creation is going to decrease its credibilty in the wiki world, at least in my eyes.

"Null" posts are technical problem of the wiki engine and should be fixed apropriately. -- RadomirDopieralski, 2006-12-17

I agree. With the new spam filter i hope that we will not need to force users to log in in the future. Janne, where do those "Null" posts come from. Honestly i have no idea...

-- Christoph, 2006-12-19

The "null" posts are a known and notoriously hard-to-track bug.

-- JanneJalkanen

EY! You have a real problem with spam protection her! Can not edit some pages because this wiki thinks some other comments are spam. WTF? -- J├ÂrgGottschling

I'm trying to post a cheat sheet I prepared (I posted it temporarily on my wiki instead now), and every time I get a message:

Akismet tells Herb you're a spammer, Herb trusts Akismet, and I trust Herb! (Incident code DXYZNV)
Personally, I prefer to revert some spam here and there than to not be able to post anything at all. -- RadomirDopieralski, 2006-12-31

There is at least one automated spam bot for JSPWiki. jspwiki.org is getting hundreds of automated edits per day. Unfortunately it has ceased to be about "some spam here and there" :-(

Akismet is the Wordpress anti-spam system... I have no idea why it is not working as it should. But it can be turned off, if needed.

We calculate a delta of the change and submit that to Akismet. If you're being stopped because of some other people editing something on the pages, then that is a bug and please report it!

-- JanneJalkanen

I've turned off Akismet temporarily. There's also a missconfiguration so that you currently cannot get a new account. I am working on this tomorrow. Please be patient.

--Christoph 31. Dec. 2006

Meatball was using Akismet for awhile and decided to drop it. Not entirely sure on all the reasons, but one was it wasn't an open process. Its been replaced with a Meatball:EditHash and a simple CAPTCHA if there are URLs in the post. So far only had a handful of spam posts have gotten through in several weeks.

-- JaredWilliams

Well, I tried to post the CheatSheet, finally managed to do it. It only contains 2 urls, both to this wiki -- no idea why Akismet thinks this is a spammy domain. Btw, any idea on how to quote the CheatSheet so that it can be easily copied to WikiCreole wikis?

Thank you for making it work and thanks a lot for all the work with caring about and hosting this wiki. Don't let the minor technical problems discourage you.
