Regarding the spam blocking items on the page -- Ceyockey (talk) 19:32, 30 January 2014 (CST)

I think your implementation of the 'select the cats' barrier is brilliant. I think this is quite sufficient to hold drive-by spammers and bots at bay. Another thing which might help keep spammers at bay is to restrict access to the page http://www.phusewiki.org/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers to Admins Only. This provides a metric for assessing a wiki in terms of the number of people a spammed advert might access. Keeping the 'active users list' public is perfectly fine, as this will ALWAYS be only a small % of the full users list. --Ceyockey (talk) 19:32, 30 January 2014 (CST)

About transfer of content from 'current' to 'new' wiki -- Ceyockey (talk) 19:35, 30 January 2014 (CST)

Could you provide some additional information on this. Is _this_ the current wiki? One thing to consider is if you want to maintain a cc-by-sa valid license, you will need to transfer article histories as part of the overall transfer -- i.e. not just content, but history will need to be migrated. --Ceyockey (talk) 19:35, 30 January 2014 (CST)
