Not sure if this is the appropriate place to put this... but it seems logical. I note we have spam problems again. Are there any thoughts given to restricting IP-edits to prevent spam? (and probably adding a "Type the letters in the box" authentication to user-creation) --Joe 12:49, 22 Dec 2005 (EST)

While editing a talk page today... I was getting this:

Database error
A database query syntax error has occurred. This may indicate a bug in
the software. The last attempted database query was: 
(SQL query hidden)
from within function "SearchUpdate::doUpdate". MySQL returned error
"1016: Can't open file: 'searchindex.MYI' (errno: 145) (localhost)".

i've mentioned it to jimbo, i don't know what the problem is w/ it or why that happens -- i'm guessing ti's a result of some antispam stuff he's done recently, but can't really say. the changes are made, but it doesn't display them on the edit. --Dave 13:29, 4 Jan 2006 (EST)

type-the-letters authentication

If you know of a convenient patch to add that to mediawiki, I'd probably use it. Be damned if I'll try to AUTHOR one myself, though. =)

I'm aware that occasionally it throws a MySQL error, but I haven't been motivated enough to chase it down yet 'cause, well, the edits still actually WORK and nothing seems to have a major problem. At some point I'll drop the database and reindex the tables and see if that helps.

table was crashed

the searchindex table was crashed. should be copacetic now. --Jimbo
