eg, when they try submitting the edited page they will be asked something like "what is 65-13?" and if they answer incorrectly the edit will be rejected.

for now i will set it so that logged in users do not need to go through this step (so be sure to log in when you're updating stuff, Being645!)

let's see how effective that is :)
done. seems to work ok, so lets see how it goes...

;D ... like we had it before ... might serve as a certain barrier for fully automated spamming at least ... :D

Cool, works perfectly well... ;D... :notworthy: ...

Changing the link in the Gigography has created two Redirect Pages (Europe 2005 and The Next One)
which, in my opinion, could be deleted since nothing links there ...

Seems to work ... ;D ...
However, during the last round of extensive "spamming" someone has filled the
Band History page with links of entirely no avail ... and created quite a few
useless pages which IMHO might be deleted ... since nothing links there ... :roll:

I've taken the links out of the text, but the pages are still there, of course ...

Here's the list of ... :urff: ...
Cover version
Indie rock
Music chart
October 22
1990
1990 in music
Maggie Railey
1991
East West
B-side
MP3

ahh, i see!

right, i've removed those, thanks :D

although the EastWest page seems to have a couple of pages linking to it:

http://sisterswiki.org/Special:Whatlinkshere/EastWest

:?:

those 2 links should probably be external links to the eastwest website or their wikipedia page? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_West_Records

dont know how you identify external inks though - never really edited wikipages that much :lol:

Perfect now!... ;D

http://sisterswiki.org/EastWest

... on the other hand, you can as well dustbin it, since nothing likes there anyway ... :lol:

unless I set the link to this again in the Band History ... no problem, either ... :lol:

Btw. external links have this special change page sign ...

So here's the next dose of superfluous double pages in the Wiki which should be deleted ... ;D

These have NO LINKS at all ...

These were formerly linked to
Shot, Shot Rev 2.0 or otherwise to pages that have disappeared ...

Shot Rev 2.0 (page disappeared) - can, if possible, be deleted
I've replaced it by a page called Shot Revised (1993) ... no other chance ... :roll: ...

However, the Wiki is slowly improving a bit ... ;D

:D ... oh, it's not only me, at the moment there's also Patti ... :notworthy: ...

Everybody can do something there ... first, one should, however, take a look on how it works ... :roll: ...

but then it's not much of a problem ... :wink:

and if there is ... there's the HELP in almost every language and there are administrators ... 8) ...

So, the damned Wiki is improving ... HOWEVER, some things cannot be done
without some consultation and co-operation with any administrators ...

OK, I confess: I do hate the word Wiki from the first day I've ever read it somewhere in the internet ... :urff: :urff: :urff:

... insofar, I suggest we rename this one into Sister Kawa ...
(as a little less dumb example) if this should make things easier ...

Joking aside ... there are many pages (like those mentioned above), that should be deleted properly ...
as well as some "users" - the talk of which I've removed last night ...

Any other suggestions?

We also need to restore a few pages that just shows up as not being there when you click on them. (But when you check edits you can see that things have been added.. ) Such as this one: http://sisterswiki.org/The_Incredible_H ... %26_Vol._2

Ah thanks, that's clearly pretty something ... :D ... :notworthy:

BUT ... I wish I could delete superfluous pages ... and above all
those which have disappeared - all of them in the bootlegs section, as far as I could gather ...

Like for example ...
http://sisterswiki.org/The_Grief%2C_Lon ... 23.12.1982
http://sisterswiki.org/Zig_Zag_Club%2C_ ... 10.07.1982
http://sisterswiki.org/Carmina_Burana%2 ... 19.02.1983

and plenty (really) more.
As long as the links to these pages are there, it's not easy to create them anew ...
For some of them it's enough to take a shorter or longer name but for others ... :roll:

If you do a search for example for The Incredible History Of The Sisters Vol. 2
http://sisterswiki.org/Special:Search?s ... ters&go=Go

you are told there were no such page and you might create it
- but you can't and this pages existed - Patti has even uploaded the cover pictures to it ...

see ... http://sisterswiki.org/Image:The_incred ... #filelinks

and it is linked to the respective page but what you get is ...
http://sisterswiki.org/The_Incredible_H ... s_-_Vol._2

We tried several different names to create another page like this but it just doesn't work ...

PLEASE help ... :( ... this problem has to be resolved.

Is it possible that this example can't be opened because of the dot inside the wiki article title:
Maybe that tiny dot does forcing any browser to find an object/file with the ending "*._2" :?:

Seems you're perfectly right ... :eek:

So preferrably no dots within page titles ... that's at least a little progress, thanks ... :D ... :notworthy: ...

Still, we gotta get rid of all these non-existing pages ... :roll: ...

There seems to be a limit of 150kB for the photos, is it OK to upload lager ones? You can ignore the warning, but I haven't wanted to do so since I don't know if there is a space limit to the "Kawa" to use Being645's own words :)
