== Linking praxis ==
# Links to Wikipedia occurring outside of <nowiki>{{Q}}</nowiki> and [[#Scary transclusion|transcluded]] articles should bear the notice 'w:' i.e. <font color="blue"><nowiki>[[w:Article name]]</nowiki></font>.
== Accounts are available by request ==
There was a problem with spammers registering accounts, so now accounts are [[Special:RequestAccount|available upon reasonable request]].
= Wiki configuration =
The Ban Covert Modeling! wiki at https://wiki.ban-covert-modeling.org/wiki/ has the following configuration:
== reCAPTCHA settings ==
=== reCAPTCHA settings for the server ===
$wgGroupPermissions['*'            ]['skipcaptcha'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['user'        ]['skipcaptcha'] = false;
$wgGroupPermissions['autoconfirmed']['skipcaptcha'] = true;
$wgGroupPermissions['bot'          ]['skipcaptcha'] = true; // registered bots
$wgGroupPermissions['sysop'        ]['skipcaptcha'] = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['edit']          = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['create']        = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['addurl']        = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['createaccount'] = true;
$wgCaptchaTriggers['badlogin']      = true;
=== reCAPTCHA settings explained for humans ===
In human readable terms the reCAPTCHA settings are as follows:
# Anonymous users have to pass the captcha always
# Non-autoconfirmed users have to pass the captcha always
# Autoconfirmed users do not have to pass the CAPTCHA (See [[#Autopromotion settings explained for humans]] to figure out when you will be autoconfirmed)
== Autopromotion to skip CAPTCHA permanently praxis ==
{{Q|Make 7 edits, and when your account has existed for at least 1 hour and have clicked the "Verify my email"-link sent to verify possession of a valid email account and you can skip captcha permanently.|Juboxi|Current settings of the autopromotion}}
== Autopromotion settings ==
=== Autopromotion settings for the server ===
$wgAutopromote = array(
        'autoconfirmed' => array(
                array( APCOND_EDITCOUNT, 7 ),
                array( APCOND_AGE, 60*60 ),
=== Autopromotion settings explained for humans ===
In human readable terms:
# Users will be automatically promoted to autoconfirmed when '''all three''' conditions are met
## They have '''confirmed their email address''' by clicking on the confirmation link in the email sent by the system when registering an account
## They have made '''7 edits'''
## Their account has existed for '''at least one hour'''
These values may need to be adjusted in the future. The goal of these settings is to
# Avoid spamming, vandals etc.
# To give genuine contributors ability to edit without needing to solve CAPTCHAs reasonably quickly
== Email settings ==
# <pre>$wgEnableEmail = true;</pre> Email is enabled. See [[mw:Manual:$wgEnableEmail]] for more info.
# <pre>$wgEnableUserEmail = true;</pre> Emailing users with <nowiki>[[Special:EmailUser/Username]]</nowiki> is enabled if the user has verified his/her email address and has not disabled receiving mail via wiki. See [[mw:Manual:$wgEnableUserEmail]] for more info.
# <pre>$wgEnotifUserTalk = true;</pre> Emailing notices about someone else having edited your talk page are enabled. See [[mw:Manual:$wgEnotifUserTalk]] for more info
# <pre>$wgEnotifWatchlist = true;</pre> Email notices about someone editing a page on your [[Special:Watchlist]] are enabled. See [[mw:Manual:$wgEnotifWatchlist]] for more info.
# <pre>$wgEmailAuthentication = true;</pre> Requirement to verify your email address is enabled. Without having a verified email address of the email functions only the sending new password via email will work. Also not verifying email address stops a user from being autopromoted to autoconfirmed-status. See [[mw:Manual:$wgEmailAuthentication]] for more info.
Email coming from this wiki is sent by ''s e r v i c e s (at) ban-covert-modeling.org'' and will show in the envelope that it is delivered by a mail server of Gandi.net.
== Scary transclusion ==
<code>$wgEnableScaryTransclusion = true;</code> is enabled and [[Special:Interwiki]] adjusted so that pages with the interwiki prefix 'wikipedia:' can be transcluded by writing <nowiki>{{wikipedia::Article name}}</nowiki>
