Hi all,

When you check the recent changes in the NutWiki, you will notice that
Wiki Spam is increasing. While studying the logs for some time, I still
couldn't figure out how these robots become registered users. Changing
the captcha didn't help. They obviously found a way to create pages
without solving the captcha. There are some strange URL requests, but
I'm not familiar enough with web and PHP programming.

For the time being I decided to disable user creation. If you want write
access, please send me a private email. Users, who already had been
registered, still have write access.

As a side effect, clicking on links of not existing pages displays the
confusing message "The action you have requested is limited to users in
the group user." It just means, that this page does not exist, but
editing a new page is limited to registered users.

Also note, that uploading files or images requires special privileges.
Again, send me an email if you want to upload anything.
