Account Creation Issue

I know it's deadly hard to do so, but it would be nice if we can use mantis account for wiki login, or make some other LDAP system manage both account. I think at least it is definitely troublesome that we continue to use mediawiki's account management system no matter what option we'll use. -- Makopoppo 22:50, 2 April 2012 (PDT)

I made it so only people who confirm their email address can create new pages and edit pages now, this should cut down considerably on the bot generated spam. And believe it or not we get just as many bots generating mantis accounts as we do here, i am not sure that is much of a solution. Nebadon 00:04, 3 April 2012 (PDT)

- Ack. I hope it will continue effecting against spammers for future. Thank you for your work, Nebadon:) -- Makopoppo 00:16, 3 April 2012 (PDT)

Zombe Images

When I try to delete an image, it always fails:

Deletion of [[en:File:*****.jpg]] failed for an unknown reason. The response text is:
{u'servedby': u'', u'error': {u'info': u'Exception Caught: FSRepo::deleteBatch: no valid deletion archive directory', u'*': u'', u'code': u'internal_api_error_MWException'}}

I tried to delete both via browser and api, resulting in the same results. That results in remaining a bunch of undeleted images. I've already reported it to Justin, but do you any server manager know how to resolve the issue? Thank you. -- Makopoppo 02:17, 3 April 2012 (PDT)

--- Response #1
after a bit of searching it looks like this might be a PHP configuration issue here is a quote from :

-> I managed to resolve it myself, after browsing mediawiki and Google for the same problem. It turned out that Safe_Mode should be turned off (search on Safe_Mode for instructions how to do that).

--- Gert-willem Romer ---

which then led me here :

PHP's safe_mode is an ill-conceived, broken-by-design setting in PHP that is supposed to make broken scripts safe. It was deprecated in PHP 5.3 and removed in PHP 5.4 (see the PHP documentation). MediaWiki can run with safe_mode enabled, but many of the advanced features will not work or need additional configuration.

-- Nebadon 14:14, 3 April 2012 (PDT)

-- Response #2
I dug a bit further into this servers php.ini and it appears that safe mode is not the cause of this issue, i am still digging but not coming up with much, if anyone has any suggestions please let me know. -- Nebadon 20:00, 3 April 2012 (PDT)

New Commer Notices in Recent Changes

I recently feel many line of "New user account" entries in Special:RecentChanges a bit annoying... It no longer much help in administration today since many of them seems to be blocked by mail or server-specific features, and we only have to manually delete a post per few days. Some users even abuse that page by putting long name without any clear intention. Even I as administrator feel it is waste of line, how ordinal users feel that? I don't think they want to know who others joined today. And there's no way to hide them using wiki interface. I would propose that newcomer-notice feature be turned off. -- Makopoppo 12:58, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

Sounds good to me. -- Justincc 00:32, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
If no other opinion, we'd better do it soon... any server admin? -- Makopoppo 01:09, 23 June 2012 (UTC)
