I created the user "Fake" in order to test how hard it is for a spammer to create new accounts. I think email verification for new users should reduce spam significantly. Only Captchas is apparently not enough. It would be nice if somebody with wiki/root rights enables email validation for this mediawiki.

the config required should look like this:

$wgEnableEmail = true; // enable basic e-mail features
$wgEmailAuthentication = true; // require email authentication for using any
email function (except password reminder which works independently from this
$wgEmailConfirmToEdit = true; // requireas a confirmed address for editing

$wgGroupPermissions ['*']['edit'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions ['emailconfirmed']['edit'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions ['sysop']['edit'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['edit'] = false;

$wgGroupPermissions ['*']['createpage'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user']['createpage'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions ['emailconfirmed']['createpage'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions ['sysop']['createpage'] = true;
