Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone tell me when I click on the ARRSEPedia tab I am told it is a secure area and its requests my user name and password.

    When I put them in, they are not recognized.
  2. Thanks Joker.

    And thanks for pointing it out so politely.
    Its more than I deserve!

    Should be OK now - I've been trying to limit the heavy spamming. Thanks for the reminder

  4. Ahhhhhhhh, all is right with the world.

    Thanks GCO.
  5. Erm... Houston, we have a spam problem.

    Is it possible to just not let people make new accounts? Maybe set things up so that only admins can create them, and anyone who wants to edit the wiki sends them a PM asking to be given edit rights.

    thanks - my efforts have clearly not worked!
  7. Nice idea but not really in the ethos of wiki.

    Unfortunately wiki pages will always be subject to abuse.

    There must be another way round it

  8. Well, it would still let anybody edit it - it would just mean that they had to ask to set up an account!

    I can't see that any genuine editors would have an issue, but it should put most spammers off.
