16:33 mikemol Mm?
17:19 TimToady I've been wondering about all those new accounts that get added with no additional activity
17:19 TimToady maybe they've gone into a database somewhere for later use (like now)
17:20 TimToady saved up for a DOS-like spam, maybe
17:20 TimToady I wonder if we could restrict or remove accounts that never did anything
17:21 TimToady or maybe that user just had a trivial password?
17:25 mwn3d_phone1 Isn't the user list page restricted?
17:30 mikemol TimToady's in the "bureaucrat" group, too.
17:31 TimToady wasn't looking at the user list
17:31 TimToady was just remembering :)
17:33 mischi In a different forum there was also a spammer problem.
17:33 mikemol mischi: Spam is a problem every online entity faces. :-|
17:34 mischi we deleted all accounts, which were started more than 6 months ago and did never post anything.
17:34 mischi about 2/3 of all accounts
17:34 mikemol MediaWiki doesn't support deleting accounts. It does support banning them, though.
17:35 mikemol It would probably not be a bad idea to generally downgrade accounts for inactivity.
17:35 mikemol (That way, if someone's account is hacked after they've been inactive for ages, the hacked account doesn't do much damage.)
