I quite agree, and I have written for some articles to make them more useful (FIR~, multiplex~, and tabwrite) but I feel lonely doing so. I'm the only user to have made any changes to pdpedia content in the last 30 days; there has been some spamfighting by Hans and lots of spam from anonymous IPs but if noone else is updating the actual content I don't see why I am doing it. > Silly question: but why don't you just use captchas did get rid of all these > massive spam attacks ? > (However, I don't know if this is difficult to install on this system - > otherwise maybe have to use user accounts ...) http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SpamBlacklist is something that could be considered. It prevents any edit to a page which inserts a URL matching a list of regexes.
