Cannot edit links on wiki.ldraw.org
#1
After getting a report from a user, I tried to fix LDView's website link on its LDraw Wiki Page (since I moved it from sourceforge to github), but this simply resulted in the following after I checked the Captcha box:

Side note: I couldn't find any obvious way on the LDraw Wiki itself to "please inform an administrator". Maybe I'm just blind.

This is a result in the anti-link spam measures I've put into place. It limits placing/changing external links in wiki pages unless you meet certain criteria. I'm loathe to change them since they are effective but I can do the edit myself.

Edit made and I'll explore making the spam filter less restrictive.

Thanks. Making the links less restrictive might do more harm than good, but the current behavior is (IMO) anti-social. It asks the user to validate as a human via ReCaptcha in order to make the link edit, and then, as soon as they do that, it tells them they are suspected of being a spammer anyway. In my opinion, showing a ReCaptcha, and then telling the user they're hosed anyway after they successfully pass ReCaptcha, is not so nice.

Good point. I’ll dial back the reCaptcha. I threw everything at the wall to see what stuck and the only thing that worked was the abuse filter.
