Two great suggestions, and both completely ignored.  And this page's attempt to make it easier to report spam is also going completely ignored.  It's almost as if OSGeo don't care about the annoying level of spam on this wiki and are quite happy for people like [[Special:Contributions/Partwash|Partwash]] and [[Special:Contributions/Laudyuda|Laudyuda]] (quite probably the same person) to vandalise every day for weeks.  So in that case there's no point in us trying to help either.

Restrict Editing of Main Page

Why not Restrict Editing of Main Page to Sysops only? It is a frequent target of spam. Jidanni 14:09, 28 February 2012 (PST)

Don't let spambots create accounts

They already know CAPTCHA. For my wiki I rely on Ms. Nurdsbaum in room B-303, http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Preventing_access#Restrict_account_creation Jidanni 14:09, 28 February 2012 (PST)
