Hello. Looks like you are struggling with filtering the spammers... How about to disable the account creation page once again? Otherwise the spammers will attack this wiki forever... --S2KTS (talk) 02:00, 18 June 2018 (EDT)

The main reason for keeping registration open is to lower the barrier of entry for people that want to fix issues or contribute to the wiki. The more steps a user has to take, the less likely they are to go through them. Using AbuseFilter and Google's ReCaptcha, I can limit the number of SPAM posts to almost nothing without hindering legitimate users. It just takes a bit of trial and error. --B4ndit (talk) 07:00, 18 June 2018 (EDT)
