Wiki improvements

So if anyone has tried to use the wiki in the past month or two you have surely noticed that it was constantly under attack by a a relentless gang of spambots rendering it completely unusable.

Well, I'd finally had enough and implemented some anti-spam measures.

For now on whenever you create or edit a wiki page you will be prompted to solve a simple math problem to prove you're a human. Hopefully this will permanently alleviate the problem of spam in the wiki.

Now that it actually works lets get some more worthwhile articles in there!

Thanks and enjoy.

- Cary (management)

Yay! Go Cary!

Sorry, I have nothing to add, currently. I made my one contribution... And that's all I know.
