Description Emufarmers 2007-11-29 04:25:47 UTC
With these settings:

$wgGroupPermissions['sysop'        ]['skipcaptcha'] = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['createaccount'] = true; // Special:Userlogin&type=signup

Shouldn't a sysop, when logged in, be able to create accounts without being prompted for the CAPTCHA?

I'm surprised none of the people who create accounts for others on Wikipedia have complained about this.

Probably not the most elegant fix, but it works. *crosses fingers*
