Okay. Is anyone participating on Mpedia? Andyfarrell 04:00, 29 Jun 2007 (PDT)


There seems to be an upsurge in vandalism that Dan is having to deal with. Is it time-consuming? I look every few days at the recent changes and all there seems to be is vandalism and Dan dealing with it, no new contributions. A shame. Andyfarrell 12:55, 28 September 2007 (PDT)

It appears to be coming from China; some of it is in Chinese. Anyway, I think I've finally stopped it by installing a "captcha" for new-user signups, even though I hate those things. There hasn't been any new vandalism for about 24 hours. DanTheWebmaster 16:07, 28 September 2007 (PDT)
The captcha seems to have succeeded in stopping the spam, but there still haven't been very many productive edits to the site lately either. DanTheWebmaster 05:02, 5 October 2007 (PDT)
Congratulations on stopping the spam - I mentioned the site a while back on my local list and will mention it again as well as a Mensa forum. Autarch 11:16, 11 October 2007 (PDT)
Lovely to see someone new contributing. I see you added the location for next year's IMAG - if you've any other info (dates etc) it would be great if you get chance to add it. :-) Andyfarrell 15:56, 11 October 2007 (PDT)
Thanks! Dates have just been added. Autarch 07:42, 13 November 2007 (PST)
Ta. For some reason Maureen deleted the references to the next IMAG, for no good reason I can fathom, so I've reverted the changes. She's also been deleting some other things. (Baffled.) I take your point about titles like "North East" being ambiguous, though I'm not sure "North East (Britain)" is the perfect solution. NE Britain means Aberdeen, perhaps NE (England) would be the best? What do you think? Thanks again for being here adding and improving to the stuff this side of the pond - nice for us to keep up in friendly competition with the Americans. ;-) Andyfarrell 05:22, 22 November 2007 (PST)
Further to the above, the lady concerned has been emailing me telling me not to contribute here and generally trying to enforce some censorship so that mention of their political spats is not spoken of here. I've said that the edits seem to be within the scope of this site, so suggested that she talks to the site owner about the goals of the site if she wants them altered. As a part of the purpose of Mpedia seems to be providing a record of what's gone on, I am assuming that talk of political disagreements is currently on topic. I'd welcome other opinions.
