For new users of the Wiki, we have upgraded our registration process in order to better protect the Wiki against automated spammers, since OCR and randomly generated image captchas are becoming easier for bots to decode and solve.

As of now, our registration process features a question to determine whether or not you are a human (vs. an automated spam robot), as shown below:

The questions asked during the process are not case-sensitive (i.e. “falcon” and “Falcon” will both work), although you must spell them correctly. Otherwise, it will result in an error, as shown below.

There are various questions in the list, and few are picked at random. We aim for them to be easy for those who have even the most basic knowledge of the series.

We will be adding additional questions as needed.

However, if you should encounter problems during the sign-up process, you are encouraged to e-mail me directly: webmaster[At]battlestarwiki[d0t]org. Thank you!
