Nucleuswiki, some rules, some warnings

When I first got involved in a wiki it was all open. The concept of editing the same information by different users was great. And it still is. Unfortunatly, the openness of the system did attract some users no-one initially thought of. Abusers. Because of this, I think it's only fair to state under which rules i manage this wiki. That way no-one can accuse me of not being honest with you.

Anonymous versus logged in

When you visit this wiki you do not need to be logged in to see and read most of the pages that are stored inside this wiki. At this moment as an anonymous user you can even edit existing pages if you think that you can make a contribution on that subject you are welcome to do so. But you are not able to create a new document anywhere on this site. If however you decide to create an account you can create pages and upload images and zipfiles to acompany your document. (Think screenshots, zipfiles containing a plugin). It'll cost you nothing. The pages you create need to be within the sope of this wiki. And that means your item or subject should be related to the nucleus cms one way or another. The descision wheter or not your newly created page has anything to do with the subject of this wiki is at the end of the day solely mine. The same goes for uploaded media. If i decide it is offensive i will delete it without further notice. This is not to discourage you if you are willing to really make a contribution.

Spam

If there is anything on the net that makes me mad, it has to be spam. All kinds of unwanted traffic of mass dumping robots. Whether robots link-spamming a wikipage, robots dumping non-linking referrers, or email harvesting bots to clutter your inbox. I despise them all alike. And I've had to deal with some lame robots.

This wiki has a couple of blocking methods against WikiSpam. A huge blocking .htaccess file and loganalyzing tools to monitor traffic. And if a robot starts hitting he'll be likely blocked within the hour. And I will continue to do so.

So don't try. It pisses me off and it will gain you nothing.

Site Hammering

This Wiki is run on a private server on a private line. I put a lot of dedication in keeping this domain clean of spam, and accessable to all of you Nucleus users out there. However, some users think they are alone1), or they are simply ignorant. Requesting every damn page on this domain in 5 minutes over and over again or requesting the RSS feed every 5 minutes is something that will eventually bring every server to its knees. Espacially this wiki where the serverload on the RSS feed is high. So if you get a 403 in your RSS reader, too bad.
