IMPORTANT
In this past October (2020) the Shifti Community lost Chris "Robotech Master" Meadows to an accident involving an SUV hitting his electric bike and leaving the scene. While we may never know the full story of this event, the administrators of Shifti will work to preserve his account and works here as he'd wish us to. Thank you all for being such excellent people.

Hey, I've noticed that, lately, this wiki's anti-spam tool is acting up again.  It's ''supposed'' to have users authenticate using two-word (Re)CAPTCHAs, but recently it's been using less secure two-to-four–digit numbers or one word for the (Re)CAPTCHAs.  Is this bad, or was this regression intentional?  <br />

:This might be because we've shut off most of the authentication stuff after locking out new users while we search for a replacement for Asirra. ReCaptcha failed hard, as did MathCaptcha and a few others we had tested in the past. (We tried going back to ReCaptcha after Asirra was shut down and got a massive flood of bot-signups - on the order of 40 or 50 in a 4 hour period - so...) I'm still looking, but at this time it seems like our best bet might be trying to get something like Asirra running - that style, at least, since it requires a lot of computing power or a human...
