On Wikispecies, apparently since yesterday, autoconfirmed users need to enter a CAPTCHA when edits include external links.
For some reason, the 'skipcaptcha' permission has been removed for Autoconfirmed users:
Steps to reproduce:
- Go to https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikispecies:Sandbox
- Make sure you are logged in, and you are an autoconfirmed user
- Edit the sandbox, and add an external link (e.g. https://www.biodiversitylibrary.org/)
- Click the "Publish changes" button
It is required to enter a CAPTCHA.
The changes should be published without having to enter a CAPTCHA.
