First off, I'm glad we have this feature enabled for articles with external links to keep spammers away. Is there a way to disable it for legitimate contributors? There's a ton of content to be added and most articles have a link back to Darth Hater DB. --19:48, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
- I'll look into it. Ausir (talk) 20:11, 2 December 2011 (UTC)
- There really wasn't a need for a captcha for external links. The abuse filter does a fine job of stopping anyone trying to add an external link to a new page. The fact that all the captchas available have also been broken by bots is another reason that it's pretty much just a pita for legitimate users while not really doing anything about spammers. -- Wynthyst 19px talk 20:13, 8 December 2011 (UTC)
