Disable captchas for established wiki authors

Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: wiki Version:
Keywords: wiki admin Cc: Grant Slater


Please find a way to distinguish normal long-term wiki authors and potential spammers.

Entering a captcha is not required if the number of edits is high enough and the user has edited in several months.

Wikipedia for example, has a sophisticated permissions system.
