[sword-devel] wiki vandalism

Vandalism is cleaned up and I'm now moderating new user account requests.

Those that want an account have to give their "real name," an email account that they can validate, and a short biography with a minimum required length. When approved that biography will become their user page.

Obviously, we'll be sensitive to people's need to be anonymous. So we'll be using our judgment on handling that.

There are only two valid reasons to have a wiki account: To edit/create content and to watch content.

Soon I will remove the 4 day waiting period for editing/creating content.

Let me know if you have any questions.

In Him,
