Updated the Wiki to the MediaWiki 1.16.0-version. Update of the SemanticWiki-Bundle did not work so for the time being it is not upgraded
The introduction of the Captcha wasn't too successful. Some bots still edited pages. But at least matters did not become worse.

An extension to the Wiki that prevents spamming by heuristic methods has been installed and seems to work (denied a number of spamming events already). The only problem seems to be that it classifies certain RSS-Readers as spammers and blocks their IPs.

Again a spam-bot visited this site and added Links to Spam-Sites. The changes have been removed and precautions against this happening again have been taken.

An individual that calls himself Buba5 (the name speaks for itself) erased the complete FAQ and this page. If you see him, tell him mummy is looking for him and he's a bad boy.
