Description:
Dear all,

atm, there is only the checkbox:

  • Block anonymous users only

Please add

  • Prevent account creation

with this option we could block certain types of spambots without blocking the account creation (some do not log in and create accounts)

Thanks for Your help

Also the block options are not shown in the log, and the log breaks if there is
more than one action a day and if one has the enhanced rc activated.

Log breakage is likely something separate, and should have a separate bug.

I missed this for the annual community wishlist survey. Yet this would be a very welcome feature for when we want to disable editting only by annonymous users but would like to keep account creation open (because the problem is just with anonymous contributions).

Why was the priority reset?
