I am not 100% sure, but it sure looks like it's polish. I have no idea what it says, though...

Anyway, possibly it will become necessary that only registered users may edit the wiki.

Yeah it looks like Polish, and google translate agrees. That first one looks like some sort of soup recipe. Strange...

There were two more such pages with links in them. I removed the links - and I had to keep myself very much from deleting the pages altogether. Maybe it is better to do this, unfortunately I would not know how the topic can be removed (rather than just the text.)

However, it seems as if the pages can only be found by direct link or "recent changes".

Edit: I just looked up the IP number ‎37.59.29.59 used in the creation: It maps to a DNS entry, but the resulting domain is just a godaddy.com placeholder page. Strange... but I never needed to care about spammers very much.

Sigh :( that's what I feared... every time you use opensource stuff, there are spammers. I blocked that user, but indeed I should look how to prevent anonymous user to post!!

OK I have now disabled completely registrations, is the safest way. If anyone wants to edit/create pages will need to ask me to create an account. Is the best solution :)

Ehm ... sorry, but I cannot edit any more. Not even when I am logged in.

Yeah, I can no longer edit as well, and I am logged in as well.

If it's not an imposition, I would like to be able to edit again. If it's not to be, I can understand that as well.

Haha sorry I forgot to add you to the "Trusted Users" group :lol: doing it now!
Let me know if you can edit again now, I think should be fine?

Thank you, I can edit again!

And I figured it was just a matter of permissions, etc. Much easier to forbid everyone and then add them later ;)
