Sysop[edit]

Hi Ldo -- after adding some great code, you are now officially a sysop of CodeCodex. Now you can now:

  • delete and undelete pages
  • protect and unprotect pages
  • block and unblock IPs
  • issue read-only SQL queries to the database
  • use a shortcut revert-to-previous-contributor's-revision feature in contribs

Let me know if you have any questions! -WikiSysop 13:02, 13 February 2007 (CST)

Glad you like it :). More to come. Ldo 04:23, 4 August 2007 (CDT)

Spammers[edit]

Hi Ldo -- I'm thinking about adding in an extension that would not ask for a 'human test' if a user adds in an external link to help get rid of more spammers. During these late days of summer, it's a majority of edits here on the site. I'll keep you posted. -Nostromo 22:36, 21 August 2007 (CDT)

Ok, we should be better off now. I added more strings that are banned, including a few of the domains that have been spamming like crazy, and any edit adding more than three external links. This should help until I get the new plug in up and running. -Nostromo 22:49, 29 August 2007 (CDT)
Oh, also, I didn't turn on the 'no anon edits' yet -- although I agree that that should be done if the spammers keep this up. But keep in mind that you can always protect a page that has been spammed more than once, just add a note saying that if you wish to edit the page, you must sign up. -Nostromo 22:51, 29 August 2007 (CDT)

Spotted your Category:Algol 68 contributions. Where did you learn Algol?

I have been doing something similar at http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Category:ALGOL_68
