Suggestions to reduce spams in slschools database
from time to time we had annoying entries in our school database.
Cleaning up regularily is already a good thing, but in order to solve
the problem, there are further steps to take.
On http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEdu/Teams/SiteMap I suggested 3
solutions. Please add your comments there, too.
=== Wiki Quote: ===
From time to time, obscure advertisements are placed in our Database.
1. Send mail to commits mailing list whenever a new entry is added.
2. Hide URLs of new schools until an admin confirms the validity of
the new entry
3. Make URLs non-clickable in general.
ad 1: Any suggestions for implementation?
ad 2: Easy to implement by means of the status variable "deleted" that
is already used to hide away "deleted" entries. Request for comments?
ad 3: Probably the easiest solution - but less comfortable. URLs
probably need to be parted by spaces to turn off spammers...
