    Been in influx of bots to the Wiki recently, which I don’t understand as we use Googles recaptcha to block them, obviously they are getting past this, so I have done 3 things.

    • Replaced recaptcha with QuestyCaptcha, which is a group of questions that I write manually, we currently only have 2, and I will give you the answers here, there not suppose to be hard, but a bot will not understand what this input is or what it wants as a reply, the only obstacle I can see from this, is peolpe not reading the small bit of text when they register and thinking they cant register as they are not reading the message for what to put in the box.
      Q: What game does PirateCraft need to play? A:Minecraft
      Q: What is the full name of this Minecraft server? A: PirateCraft or piratemc or pmc
    • I added a mass IP blocklist, via StopForumSpam plugin
    • I promoted Lego to admin on wiki for the next month to help clean up the Wiki.

    If the bots continue, we will try another Capcha. If its someone that’s targeting us, a previous PirateCraft player, they could obviously read this message and it would be easier for them to send bots into the wiki with the raw answers, we will find out, its very east to moderate and we have multiple backups daily. So there is no real worry.

    Me and LEGQ request a victory parade for our hardwork in the aptly named “Bot war of Sept-November 2018” when we fought against the incoming tides of bots, together we retired over 100 bots during our time so far Bladerunning.

    They employed tactics of humanity against us, with one seeming to take on a sort of self-consciousness, who I tried to reason with, but luckily due to the quick actions of LEGQ, he dispatched the program before it could lure us in any longer.

    There was also that time there was blue-on-blue, I accidentally blocked Peppykiss, only to realise my mistake and immediately unblock him (whether that was a good idea I am not sure).

    I personally don’t know what LEGQ would like, but I was thinking a celebration along the lines of this=

    Everybody’s part (in order of appearance):

    Ewoks- everybody who doesn’t get mentioned and didn’t know about the secret war.

    Stormtroopers- skulls of bots

    Lando- LEGQ who blew up the last wave of bots

    Solo- A glad looking GodsDead

    C3PO- Lawzonenon, cause you know I imagine law to get giddy

    R2D2- RoMich cause he just makes like random pasta noise

    Chewy- Max cause he like furry things

    Luke- Me, cause  why would I let anyone else obviously.

    Leia- “Every girl who play PirateCraft who is kinda interesting than the rest of em”

    Obiwan- The dude who talked to me

    Yoda- Peppy cause i kinda killed him

    Vador- Old capacha
