Overhaul StopFormSpam extension
Open, MediumPublic


Some notes from an IRC conversation with @Skizzerz on how to improve the StopForumSpam extension

  • Left over cruft from when Lego removed the API/submission features
  • re add the submission feature, but gate it by whether emailconfirmation is required to edit
  • for low traffic wikis, hit the API on every request instead of requiring a cached list
  • Figure out a better system to serialize IPs, including IPv6 support
    • Maybe put the cached list into a database using spatial indexes?
    • MariaDB support might require using myisam since innodb didn't get support until later
