[01:23:59] <mrpg> Hello good sir or madam, I was trying to create an account in the wiki at "https://wiki.soylentnews.org/wiki/Special:RequestAccount" and I received a message about V1 captcha being shutdown on 2018-03-31.
[01:24:01] <exec> └─ 13No such special page - SoylentNews
[01:24:06] <mrpg> So I was told to direct you to https://developers.google.com
[01:24:07] <aqu4>  ^ "3Frequently asked questions &nbsp;|&nbsp; reCAPTCHA &nbsp;|&nbsp; Google Developers"
[01:24:08] <exec> └─ 13Frequently asked questions  |  reCAPTCHA
[01:24:21] <mrpg> Any calls to the v1 API will not work after March 31, 2018.
[01:24:51] <mrpg> That's all, thanks for your attention.

[01:51:21] <chromas> Are there even any wiki admins around still?
[02:43:18] <Bytram> chromas: very good question... I am quite the noob when it comes to Wiki admin stuff. I have some elevated, but by no means god mode, privs on ours.
[02:43:42] <chromas> I wonder if you can give him an account.
[02:44:10] <chromas> Upgrading the captcha plugin probably requires maximum privilege though
[02:44:22] <Bytram> yuppers on all points
[02:44:33] <Bytram> just confirmed xyem
[02:44:43] <Bytram> oops, not done yet
[02:45:44] <Bytram> slow as molasses
[02:46:27] <Bytram> yays!
[02:46:31] <Bytram> The user account for Xyem (talk) has been created.
[02:49:35] <Bytram> looks like cmn32480 has elevated privs on the wiki, too.
[02:49:44] * Bytram does not see anything in the queue from mrpg
[02:50:23] <Bytram> ~tell mrpg I tried to follow through on your new account on the wiki, but I do not see any pending requests?!!?
[03:09:31] <Bytram> chromas: Upon further looking, it appears that for our Wiki, the only names I recognize for folks who have elevated privs and I've seen around recently are: mechanicjay, paulej72, cmn32480, NCommander, and I
[03:09:58] <Bytram> oh, and Sir Finkus, too.
[03:10:47] <chromas> Need to get privileges for exec :D
[03:11:27] <Bytram> well, as far as I know, exec is not a person... that said, it does have elevated privs. =)
[03:11:52] <chromas> ~wikictl upgrade plugins
[03:12:55] <Bytram> Looks like you created your wiki acct on 2014-04-25
[03:14:15] <Bytram> we had to lock down account creation on our Wiki quite a while ago... bots would find it, create an account, and spam the wiki with all kinds of junk.
[03:14:35] <chromas> I remember. I think that's why exec got privs
[03:14:40] <Bytram> nod nod
[03:14:47] <chromas> crutchy made a script so we could swat spam posts from irc
[03:15:20] <Bytram> 'zactly
[03:15:22] <chromas> Not sure if it could delete them but it changed the pages to "delete me" pages.
[03:15:30] <Bytram> lol

[13:40:28] <Bytram> Xyem: Ping... was over at our Wiki and noticed you had attempted to create an account; I approved it. Please confirm that it was, indeed, you who requested it... and that you were able to log in. Thanks!
[13:41:10] <Bytram> oh, that reminds me... need to update the beg-o-meter
[13:43:51] <Xyem> Bytram: Yeah, Wiki account is sorted and working, thanks.
[13:44:08] <Bytram> Great! Thanks for the quick feedback!
[13:44:30] <Bytram> It looked like it was you, but I wanted to make sure.
[13:57:45] <Xyem> No problem :)
