Hi Michele,

We run a stock MediaWiki install for the most part; maintaining modified
MediaWiki extensions is beyond our capacity at the moment.  However, if
you would like to reqest this feature from the original developers I would
be more than happy to turn it on once available.  The main page for the

I have the ability to disable the captcha for certain trusted users, so
what I *can* do is disable it on your account.  If this gets in the way of
any other major TDE contributor please send me a message and I'll disable
it on your account as well.  Those who are less active with the project
will just have to use the captcha as-is; this is the price we (and
LibreOffice among others) pay to keep our Wiki(s) spam-free. :-)
