Hello,

It seems like the system76 wiki is being abused: http://knowledge76.com/index.php/BansheeMediaPlayerPlugins
http://knowledge76.com/index.php/Help:Contents

Check out the tags up at the top.

This has always been the case. There are no protections on the wiki for keeping the riff-raff out. Look at almost any vandalized page, and you'll see an endless back-and-forth series of vandalism and Carl Richell clearing it out.

CAPTCHAs for new-user creation might be a good idea for that site, even though they're not bullet-proof.

Fixed. Thank you.

I just noticed that on the first page of your Wiki:

http://knowledge76.com/index.php/Main_Page

The "System76 Forum" link on the left hand side points to the old, archived, read only forum.

Hmmm... I'm not seeing how to change that one. I'll pass that info to Carl. Thanks.
