Wiki spamfilter
« Topic Start: August 22, 2017, 04:28:56 PM »
I keep my RPs in the wiki as well as anything related. Today's EC portal collapse was too good an opportunity to miss for a backstory RP - especially as I'm on summer holiday and can afford a couple of hours to write.

Imagine my surprise when I tried to update the page and discovered the wiki external spam filtering doesn't like crude language - even when it's not there.

It took great exception to [email protected]#$ being in the text, only on this occasion I hadn't used the word (I have in the past as part of battle descriptions etc.). Turns out that the external spam filter doesn't care about word boundaries and triggered because of [email protected]#$e. For my purposes I changed it to Akeshate which still makes sense but I'm wondering if we couldn't use a more intelligent spam filter for the wiki?
