I infrequently visit this site and usually just use it for the wiki so I was unhappy to discover that all of the articles (or at least all the articles I found) have nothing but advertisements on them. How did this occur? Is it going to be fixed or not?
Sorry if this has already been discussed, I found topics about hackers and some containing complaints about spam but I couldn't find anything concerning fixing up the wiki.
Thank you.

It's been a problem for a long time now, ever since bots found out how to break CAPCHA.
Capristo will probably get round to fixing it after he's done with the main site.
System would indicate in graphic if person is mounted on horse or not.
Same system also show if person mounted on boar, elephant, polar bear etc.
Or if person mounted on ass.
Ivan find mounting on ass funny.

Ah, thank you for the informative response. It's good to hear that it is probably going to be fixed.
For now, I shall have to play IVAN unaided!

The wiki has been secondary since the greatboards days. More or less everything is on the forums.

Geez, that's awful. ReCaptcha definitely isn't cutting it anymore. I restored the Wiki for now but I imagine it's only a matter of time before they take over again. I'll try to keep an eye on it.

Since ReCaptcha has been beaten by the spambots, I've enabled a different captcha (similar to the one when registering) where the user has to answer a simple question about the site. Hopefully that will improve things.
