November 2015 updates

Recommended Posts

Hi guys!

 

I've made a couple major updates to BS01 so far this month that I'd like the bring to everyone's attention.

 

First of all, and most-noticeably, there's now a live chatroom on the wiki!

This can be accessed at http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/Special:Chat by any logged in user. It is moderated but allows for you to discuss the wiki, Bionicle, LEGO in general, or really anything. You can private message other users as well. Emoticons are slowly but surely being added but be sure to check it out!

 

The other update has to do with anti-spam. I've gone ahead and set up several anti-spam filters, visible at http://biosector01.com/wiki/index.php/Special:AbuseFilter, all of which were copied or derived from Brickipedia. So far they've proven themselves quite successful, as I allowed some spambots in to test the filters out and they prevented several hundred spam actions in the first day. Since finalizing the new anti-spam methods for BS01, there hasn't been a single spambot. :D

 

Feel free to let us know what you think of these updates and don't hesitate to ask questions!

I'm not too pleased with the addition of a chat room, there is practically no activity on the wiki anymore asides from people going to visit, steal pictures or the admins cleaning up a few things. I see it as an unnecessary cost on the server.

It's not any stress on the server really. Just a place members can go which has actually stimulated activity a bit since it was added. We've seen a handful of new users join since publicizing the chat feature, and some new users editing articles as well and getting to know the site's policies and style guidelines.

I think this is a great addition, honestly. It has me interested in not only using the chatroom, but also actually editing pages. Yeah, I say it's good stuff.
