    Default RECAPTCHA Update

    We are aware of the end of life for Recaptcha 1.0 and are finding a mediawiki developer currently to update all the vwikis to use the new 2.0 version.

    The wikis will have to be updated to a more recent version of mediawiki to work with the new RECAPTCHA.

    I will let you all know the status, but we are working on getting it done quickly.

    I think it's only used in new account creation, to select the spammers from real editors.

    It's on the new user registration page. I don't believe its anywhere else.

    Also I have found a developer, who will start on the update this week.

    People seem to have problems. From the Discord-Channel:

    Hey any admin here ? The captcha site is down and so it's impossible to request an account ; even using the "reCaptacha v1 is shutdown" captcha, the error message is that my biography is less than 50 words when it's not.

    OK, progess to report:

    In order to update the RECAPCHA, we have to update each wiki's mediawiki version to 1.30. As we update each wiki we are doing both the version update and the Recaptcha.

    WH40K English is UPDATED
    WHFB English is UPDATED
    WH40K German is UPDATED
    WHFB German is UPDATED
    WH40K French is UPDATED
    WHFB French is UPDATED
    WARMACHINE is UPDATED

    Done! #whew

    Any news on the other three big problems that the Lexicanum has?

    * The User Registration update that we were promised 6 months ago but never happened?
    * The Category page in the Fantasy Lexi that was recently broken by an update and never fixed?
    * The fact that the Fantasy Lexi needs to be split in two for both settings?

    The lack of responses on these three issues(specially the last one) is frustrating and because of that I can't really find the motivation to do anything but basic maintenance.

    I have the impression that the Last Changes special page now simultaneously uses two noticeably different fonts. I would hazard a guess that this could affect other pages, too. And I would say that the fonts used should be uniform?

    We've just updated the registration pages for 40K, WHFB english and removed some fields.

    That should help increase new registrations.


    Ashendant, can you give me more detail on these:

    * The Category page in the Fantasy Lexi that was recently broken by an update and never fixed?
    * The fact that the Fantasy Lexi needs to be split in two for both settings?

    We didn't update anything on the wikis before this weekend for a while. So if either of those issues are recent we will have to do some digging to see what's going on.

    In general all the Lexicanum wikis were really out of date, so there will be some teething issues we have to work through with such a large version update of botht he core wiki and the extensnions. But fundamentally the wikis work. We also got the series of Lexicanum articles rolling again with Games Workshop and they should be appearing regularly on Warhammer-community.com.
