I wanna write for IndieFAQs!
« on: July 16, 2010, 04:45:12 PM »
Is this the place to ask for an account on IndieFAQs? I'd like to add some brief English instructions to the Hakaiman article.

Speaking of, I know wikispam is a huge pain for everybody, but there's got to be a better way to control access. :) I tried to create an account, found no Create Account dialog on the Create Account page, fumbled around 'til I found the note on the front page (I'd come in through Google), followed the link to the website, followed another link to the blog, followed yet another link to the forum, signed up for the forum and posted. I doubt that most would-be editors are as OCD as I am. :D Could you at least put a note and a contact form (or a direct link to the forum) on the Log In/Create Account page?

Sure thing, I'll sort you out with an account tomorrow :)

IndieFAQs doesn't really get any traffic (but that's to be expected given the purpose of the site) and rarely gets any contributions, but it was still getting pages and pages of spam per day. There didn't seem to be anything I could do about it, so I just locked it down and told people to email me if they wanted to edit it. I'll make that clearer on the account pages tomorrow too! (You're the second person to ever contact me about it :P)
