13:34 mwn3d_phone mikemol: we have a run basic problem again
13:35 mwn3d_phone Looks like he just got a new account

14:17 mikemol mwn3d_phone: I'll wait to see if the same pattern of behavior occurs. He's only got two edits, so far.
14:20 mikemol Ok, I'm about to piss a _lot_ of people off.
14:20 mikemol I'm going to enable http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:$wgEmailConfirmToEdit
14:20 fedaykin "Manual:$wgEmailConfirmToEdit - MediaWiki" http://rldn.net/9ueI
14:22 mikemol f Kokenge is the same user as the one who we blocked, he's ban evading, including IP bans. If he's not checking his talk page, and there's no way to email him, it's impossible to verify contact and communicate the issue.
14:22 mikemol And requiring email confirmation before people can edit should all but eliminate our spam problem, too.
14:26 mwn3d_phone I'm ok with that

14:54 mikemol Settings applied. [[Rosetta Code:Rosetta Code:Email Confirmation]] written. [[MediaWiki:Sitenotice]] written.
14:54 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Rosetta_Code:Rosetta_Code:Email_Confirmation (Doesn't exist.)  http://rosettacode.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Sitenotice
14:54 mikemol Though I'm not seeing it at the tops of pages. Probably (yet another) caching thing.
15:14 mikemol Can I get someone (non-sysop, preferably) to verify they can edit pages?
15:14 mwn3d_phone Will it send emails out to existing people now or will it just be for new users?
15:14 mikemol The Recent Changes feed has been absolutely still since I set the email policy.
15:15 mikemol It's always been configured to send emails out to people who provide email addresses, as long as they've configured that in [[Special:Preferences]]
15:15 fedaykin http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Special:Preferences
15:16 mikemol Existing users who haven't provided an email address will very probably need to provide one.

15:47 mwn3d_phone Editing still works for me. Just tested an edit on my userpage.
15:47 mwn3d_phone I haven't gotten an email so it must have me confirmed already
15:49 mikemol That you were able to make an edit at all meant you were already confirmed. Unless you bypass that by being a sysop.
16:07 Coderjoe_ I was also able to edit one of my user pages. not sure if that would require email confirmation normally, though
16:10 mikemol No, individual edits won't require email confirmation. Email confirmation will be required to have edit _privileges_.
16:13 Coderjoe i wasn't sure if the email-to-edit privs extended to the user's own pagespace
16:33 mwn3d_phone I hope it does. That's where a lot of spam goes.
16:40 mikemol Ok, recent-changes feed started moving again.
16:40 mikemol If this copes with spam as well as I hope it will, I can de-obfuscate our file uploading, too.
17:31 mischi joined #rosettacode
18:17 mikemol Allowing uploads of '.jpg' files again.
