In my eyes a well written test is one which includes an link to a sound
file. But again, I don't know if MediaWiki supports such or what it

We should also remember that the writing possibility with our wiki is
important only to a limited number of known persons (mostly Sword
developers). User account is a good choice but I already have too many
accounts in internet, therefore I would value a possibility to do
something without an account. Creating an account may be an extra step
which just scares away some potential writers (like with a bug
reporting system).

But all this is speculation, we just need something which works now so
that we don't need to delete spam all the time.
