Anonymous edits are back on. Testing the waters. I've added CAPTCHA's to user account creation and anonymous edits that add links to external URLs. There are more options, but I figure I'll ramp up protection as needed until it becomes manageable. --WikiSysop 21:13, 21 November 2011 (EST)

For some reason our site has been targeted for vandalism. The first few edits were for links to knock-off purse sites, then came a torrent of random replies spread over the site and a lot of new pages. Currently I'm working on getting things back together and removing all of the vandalism. For now I've ratcheted down the settings on the site. For a little while I'm not going to allow anonymous edits (must be logged in to edit - setting up an account is free). I'm never going to allow anonymous page creation anymore. I've also restricted that your account must be at least 4 days old to create new pages as well. Cleaning up the added pages has been a mess. --WikiSysop 15:33, 20 May 2011 (EDT)

Extremely slow site performance noticed on April 4th. I'm not sure what's going on but I am increasingly frustrated with Network Solutions, our webhost. I hope this will improve both in the short term with them and long term with a switch of providers. --Tim 18:11, 4 April 2011 (EDT)
