This is the same error as T276393#6951820. I turned off the StopForumSpam extension on that wiki for now, and I'll look into it.

Roger that.

I turned off the StopForumSpam extension on that wiki for now, and I'll look into it.

In doing the above, would it be reasonable for us to assume people creating new accounts on this patch demo instance will no longer run into this issue?

Reason I ask: I'm wanting to post an update on mediawiki.org and I'm wondering whether that update should: A) notify people that the issue has since been resolved or B) that the issue persists and people should hold off on trying to test the prototype until we post another message informing them that the issue has been fixed.

I turned off the StopForumSpam extension on all Patchdemo wikis, so this will not happen again: https://github.com/MatmaRex/patchdemo/issues/284

And also filed a bug with StopForumSpam: T279449

Yes, works for me now. Thanks, everyone.
