Interested Area : HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP...

A few MediaWiki extensions to prevent spam. What MediaWiki doesn't have yet is a capability to deal well with spam that's already in place on the wiki.The main thing is that all pages created by a single user or IP address, but that's not too helpful because spammers tend to switch quickly from one user and IP address to another, perhaps to get around such tools.

At present the spam detection system is not that efficient as it does not avoid certain spams but still after the addition of there have been a slight reduction in spams but still there is a lot of types of spams to deal with. My project will try to deal with it all.
