Tchernobog 13:46, 14 July 2011 (CDT): Due to a recent rise in spambot activity, we have have updated to the latest version of MediaWiki (1.17.0) and have installed the ConfirmEdit extension which adds a math based captcha to user registration as well as to all edits that introduce a URL into an article. For the moment we are leaving it at it's default configuration, but if it is too intrusive to registered users or not effective enough, we can change it's configuration. We are sorry for the inconvenience this may cause, and are always open to new suggestions on how this whole situation can be handled.

Gideon 01:28, 27 November 2011 (CST): Taking advantage of an unlimited bandwidth promo from our ISP, I took the liberty of doing another Blood crawl on YouTube. Mostly I did not add anything new to the main article, but decentralized it and added numerous videos to their own relevant topic articles (fan games, mods, etc). If only our ISP had mentioned this offer back in May when it began and not November 11th... Also, expect some new Shogo video listings soon as well.
