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 !@#$ 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 Ake!@#$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?
