Post RobotC Wiki
I found the RobotC Wiki, but was not able to create an account. Is the wiki in development and reserved only for a few to contribute to, or is there an opportunity to be a contributor to the content located there?

We have prevented user registration due to a large number of spammers modifying our wiki every day. We can create an account for you. Please email me at vnguyen@rec.ri.cmu.edu with your name, desired username, desired email account to send the confirmation information.

Looks like we need some captchas! Maybe interfacing the forum credentials with the wiki database? Or OpenID plugins...?

I know as part of my website project I am creating a RobotC Blog anyways...

I've added a small "captcha" to the wiki and allowed creation of users. I'm going to have to investigate a better captcha, but for now it's open.

Very small captcha indeed. Might I suggest 'ReCaptcha' ? http://recaptcha.net/

Hi,

Just found the wiki, and have done some editing there. A small suggestion is to have a user group that consist of some kind of verified users (x number of edits or something simular) that don't have to enter the captcha every time they do a change. If you do a lot of edits, having to enter the captcha every time isn't ideal :)

That is a good suggestion. I will see if I can implement this.

I've disabled the captcha on just edits. It is still on for edits with URL's, and page creations. I hope this gets rid of the nuisance with small edits.
