Since there was mention of a couple group rides I checked in on the wiki for the bike menorah ride.
Blast it the section is called “popular” annual rides. Maybe it can get a waiver for being a deep winter ride, or maybe there can be a section specifically for that?
The icycle is both, but I’m not sure how much else is. Honestly, I don’t know how many winter rides there are here. I think
its worth promoting
what we have and hey, if we could have some more, that would be A-OK.
I’ve put stuff in wikis enough times, just don’t want to get into any editorial back and forths. Of course, the whole premise of a wiki is that’s not actually a problem. Just, some are more faithful to that original premise than others. Anyways, it’s late. After some sleep.
We haven’t had any issues and I doubt we’ll ever have much drama on the biking wiki. And yes, we love having more contributors! Perhaps we can just allow account creation with a captcha and see if that solves the problem, reddan? http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Manual:Combating_spam As an aside, I’m sorry I haven’t done more work on the pages… I will get to it eventually…

I’m trying to not let updating become a task, but something that I do for fun when the passion strikes. I’ve been slacking, but I have other projects that are getting my attention at the moment. Will get back to the wiki, I don’t think anyone expects it to be built in one night.
I think we tried Captcha for a while and that was when we had the spam attack. Somehow the spammers have a way around it.
Yeah. If you’ve ever seen ads for “make money online in your spare time”, one of the schemes involves being paid to go around creating junk accounts and dumping link spam all over the place. CAPTCHA can’t keep out real humans, kinda by design.
