#1672 closed defect (fixed)

Unsolvable captcha for MediaWiki editing

Reported by: strk Owned by: christian
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin/Wiki Keywords: wiki, beginner


On the captcha is sometimes:

"What is the acronym of the organization running this wiki? "

Neither "osgeo" nor "OSGeo" are accepted as answers.

Quite an experience to live in fear, isn't it?

Madi reported "OSGEO" doesn't work either. I've added the "beginner" keyword to make this a candidate ticket for students (see

Re-assigning to Christian and adding SAC list in CC, otherwise I'm afraid notifications won't work.

Sorry, this has been driving me crazy too, I just hit it again now. I fixed it in the 'LocalSettings.php' file on the server: it was actually expecting the text "OSGeo Wiki", I changed that to "OSGeo". Sorry students, I could not wait! Please verify this fix.

I changed the question to ask for lowercase, so the answer is "osgeo"
