I think this task as-is is is technically resolved. Should we make a new task or rename this task for migrating all wikis to use elastic search? just the largest wikis?

This is the problem, I didn't realize we set that manually. That needs to be like "cargo_" . $wgDBname" or even just $wgDBname, which I believe is the default. (But we may not want to use the default so it can be removed later if the extension is deleted?)

Hey Void,
how about the "approved users" extension @NDKilla was mentioning? All other alternatives seem like impossible to do. I used to have a media wiki in a different platform and we were able to approve users before they could edit. We had to do this cos we got hacked and bombarded by spam bots.

Honestly any such script would probably need to be based on the CLI and be niced on one of the mw systems. Anything running in the browser would time out I think? (I don't see how you could run the script for hours or days as a flooder unless you're repeatedly running it with different input? Seeing as how sometimes Special:Nuke even times out.

NDKilla added a comment to T2516: Ought to block toxic IPs from creating user IDs..

I'm against doing anything like this outside of very extreme measures (i.e. global staff spending a majority of their active time cleaning up abuse on our main site) because IP addresses tend to rotate a lot. Software global blocks affect every wiki and can be set with several different options, including anon block only and an expiry. Webserver blocking could affect all wikis but would be permanent (until removed again manually) and would affect both logged in and logged out editors.

I have yet to look into dedicated servers yet but I was talking to @Southparkfan about 3 20€ servers from transip that would give us way more storage (and more total ram but less per server) for 60€ per month.
