I think this is settled. (: I've set up a plugin so that everyone must 'apply' to join the wiki, one of the requirements is a short 25 word biography (Evil Tim's suggestion). ZERO spam applications are getting through. Applications have to be approved manually everyday but that's pretty trivial compared to having to undo all the spam we were dealing with. I've been running this for a couple days now and have approved two new users and have seen ZERO spam on the wiki.

Are you making everyone use their real names? The two new users look like they used real names.

That was the case at first but we changed it. Now you can use whatever name you want.

I actually REALLY like this idea!! Smart thinking! I'm on other unrelated forums, and I had never gotten a PM until I registered here, in which my PM inbox was flooded with spam. So much spam there was even spam of people asking me how to spam. Oi.
