Probably been suggested before, but the Main Page might be protected, as it's an incredible target for SPAMmers. 20:28, 19 Apr 2006 (PDT)

Thanks for the tip. I've thought about it, but have been able to keep the spam pretty much in check for now, thanks to some extensions. Further safeguards don't seem to do a whole lot to deter spam. As Princess Leia says, "The more you tighten your grip, Tarkin, the more star systems will slip through your fingers." So for now at least, it's open to whoever wants to improve it. --John Hubbard 05:42, 21 Apr 2006 (PDT)

Hi John, I have a question, what is the best way of uploading an image file into an article? I do understand that any such images should be in the public domain, but if I could find apropriate public domain images how would I upload them into LISWiki?



Image uploads are disabled to non-admins for spam/security reasons. If you have something to add, just let me know and I can upload it for you. --John Hubbard 09:02, 4 May 2007 (PDT)

Would you please upload this image:

Thank you,



Hi John Hubbard,

I am Solar Dragon, a customer support member of ShoutWiki, a free wiki host. I came across your wiki earlier today and noticed that it is getting spammed almost daily and that you don't have many extensions/features.

Have you considered switching host? ShoutWiki is free and easy to use. Our staff have plenty of experience with hosting and using wikis and the MediaWiki software. We also have features in place to protect wikis from spam. Moving to ShoutWiki offers other great benefits, such as cool new features, community and techical support and many, many other things! I suggest reading more about why you should seriously consider moving to ShoutWiki here.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me with them!

Thanks and regards,
Solar Dragon

Can't create new pages[edit]

Hi there! I tried creating a new page, but whenever I do, I get an "Internal Server Error. Set $wgShowExceptionDetails = true; at the bottom of LocalSettings.php to show detailed debugging information." Is this something you can fix? Thank you so much!
