Discussions of any technical geektastic discussion-type thingies related to the administration of these forums that the rest of us nontechnical non-geektastic discussion-type people would find utterly uninteresting.

Y'all have been computer-geek ghettoized.

Mod: Wiki Extension CheckUser

Postby Delphinan » Wed Jul 06, 2011 9:56 pm

The CheckUser extension has been added to the LARP wiki. This extension Special:CheckUser (available on the Special Pages list) allows an administrator to check the IP addresses used by a user and/or the Users using an IP, and some investigation on the resultrs. All requests for IPs of a user are logged within the wiki database (visible to CheckUser users). This will help early identification of potential spambots, though given the internet geography it is not 100% sure if any new user is spammer until the first spam edit.

Access to this extension has been granted to the wiki users: Administrator, Cinnibar and Buffy initially.
