Hi all,

If you haven't noticed recently, the RecordWiki has been either restricted to a limited few or unavailable to all for editing. That has now changed. Starting January 13th, all registered members will now be allowed to add information to the Guild's wiki.

In the past, there were no restrictions on who could add or subtract from the RecordWiki's content. Then, we were hit by a bunch of automated programs and spam bots that would edit the pages replacing record information with links to x-rated sites and other obnoxious links. Now with the addition of a new "captcha" program, we can eliminate the vast majority of these horrible programs that pollutes our Wiki.

A captcha is a method of requiring either a visual or audible confirmation that ensures the information being added, is perform by a person and not a robot. The captcha program that has been included in our site asks for a simple mathematical solution (i.e. 1+2=?) in order to allow for a edit to be performed or a person to register. This will not totally eliminate spam from the RecordWiki's database. But, it will eliminate the presence of rogue programs almost totally.

In any event, feel free to contribute to the already growing information that is contained within our wiki. Our many members and guests will appreciate anything you care to offer.

Regards,
Jeff
