Description Pedro Sánchez 2007-01-17 08:14:49 UTC
Well, I?m only the carrier as they don't know who to talk about it.

There has been discussion and voting on es: regarding captchas for anon editing.

They've contacted me to forward the request to enable them on es:

Editing? Or _page creation_?

My mistake. For creation.
(captcha para la creación de artículos)
Comment 3 Pedro Sánchez 2007-02-08 05:24:03 UTC
ping? people asked me if this will be actually enabled 
Comment 4 Platonides 2007-02-25 17:32:51 UTC
Apply bug 9099 to make this happen.

Configuration on LocalSettings would be as follows:

$wgCaptchaTriggers['create']		= true; //Show captcha on page creation
$wgGroupPermissions['user'         ]['skipcaptcha'] = true; //For unregistered
users only
Comment 5 Tim Starling 2007-09-13 17:17:14 UTC
The suggested configuration would break the anti-spam and anti-password-cracking use of the captcha, by allowing addurl, createaccount and badlogin from any logged-in user.
Comment 6 Platonides 2007-09-13 17:40:08 UTC
It would break addurl, but that was a known drawback. The users have already passed a captcha to create the account.
Only breaks createaccount from registered users (create2), and it would be logged, so not a big problem.
badlogin captcha show always, even with skipcaptcha permission.

Is this still relevant several years later?
