Wiki spamming

Postby Hooray » Tue Jul 11, 2017 7:20 pm

The wiki is seeing tons of spam, Red Leader has been fighting most of it - but it's too much work to handle manually like this - are the blacklist extensions working correctly, or did the mediawiki software get updated and some things slipped through ?

There is a regular expression for phone numbers in 1-8??-* form (*1-8[0-9]{2}-.*) which they seem to have worked around. Maybe that could be expanded to be less strict.

I did not really update it; I only put similar things together and added a more accessible link to the regex syntax docs.

Edit: I have now replaced the other regexes with the most complicate regex I have written yet. The docs for the particular regex syntax and this excellent online regex tester was a great help. :)
