Agreed. Better now than later :)

To second that, we have already some registered users adding spam to the wiki (see Recent Changes). We need to delete these accounts as well.

BTW:  I cannot delete pages any longer.  The entry is gray ... is that

I think the registration is a step backwards, captcha for unregistered users will do it a lot easier for users and mantainers. I had read that occacional users changes are minimal, but those changes are those that people registered never see, becouse they already went over the same thing so many times that already skip the lecture, let say the tutorial about how to find a file in the FS, who reads it? maybe a newbie found it doesnt really work, invest some time in find why googling, and want to add his own experience, we loosing that, the experienced user dont see those little details that are key for a well documented OS, the users-comments area can add those experiences for us without give the unregistered users writting access, but like i said before, we got no other way of feedback than the edition.
About Textcha, i guess i will never be able to add things to handbook after implemented (my english sucks as you probably already noticed) lot of people doesnt speak english as main language and will get pissed off after 2-3 failed textcha tries.
Maybe we should consider a wiki migration, if the one we using doesnt have a lot of basic features that almost every other has.
Im not a big experienced wiki user, but heard a lot of good comments about mediawiki.
