Spambots: reCaptcha cracked
:::Better late than never, I wanted to thank you too [[User:IBobi|IBobi]] for the REcaptcha enabling on foreign language versions. The French version has been indeed much cleaner and easier to patrol for one month now. And Happy New Year by the way! [[User:Joelf|Joelf]] 02:33, 26 January 2012 (EST)
::::I'm really glad to hear that, Joelf -- this year, following the MW upgrade and booking tool, I'd like to circle up on how we can improve the foreign language versions; I've heard anecdotally that some aspects of those pages (editing?) has dropped off of late, and with such a large portion of WT users coming in from non-english countries I'd love to see those pages really shine.--[[User:IBobi|IBobi]] 13:31, 26 January 2012 (EST)
 
=== Update ===
 
reCaptcha has been cracked (see among many [http://groups.google.com/group/recaptcha/browse_thread/thread/9de60ecda3dc7687]). At the moment the spam on English Wikitravel is still manageable, but there should be an expectation that at some point in the future the volume of spam will again increase significantly. Hopefully Google will find a way to address this in their reCaptcha implementation, otherwise other spam handling techniques will probably need to be considered - what options are available I don't know, but others who are more familiar with Mediawiki might have suggestions. -- [[User:Wrh2|Ryan]] 18:03, 3 February 2012 (EST)
