Edit and links

1. I still cannot edit my scripts/plugin.
Is there any progress in fixing this?

2. I think it's ok to forbid href links in comments, but I find them very useful in the script description. Is it possible to get the href links there back? For example (http://registry.gimp.org/node/7870) in the sentence "Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP", the word "scripts folder" is linked with the GIMP doc page: http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/install-script-fu.html
Now I have to seperate description and links (http://registry.gimp.org/node/20340), which is less comfortable imho:
> Copy it into the scripts folder from GIMP, you will find it then under Layer -> Adjustment Layers:
> http://docs.gimp.org/2.6/en/install-script-fu.html

Greetings,
elsamuko

seems as my previous reply went lost

1 ) please report to Ingo
He reported that the issue was solved but i see is not
...at least not for you and not for Francois_C or ijontichy and that for all of their scripts pages

2 you should have something as "enable rich text" option when posting the plugin comment...did not solve ?

PS anyway prevent hidden links helped a lot to discourage spammers,

most just give up ..still a few try with smarter and smarter attempts but now are much less motivated (no hidden referral links no joy in spamming) and very easy to detect and delete

I wrote him a mail, but I got no answer and the permissions are still broken.

I don't want href links in the comments, but in the script's description.
The spammers try to place their links only in the comments section.

No, there has been spam posted as new plug-ins and scripts, too. Only the fact that there's an active team of spam hunters has prevented you from noticing them.

well i hunt and delete from comments and was much less then before
but you are right
i can't help to delete spam if posted as script

The overall amount of spam is quite low currently - a few tries per day. Nothing compared to the more than 100 or even more than 1000 attempts per day in the first half of 2009.

But disallowing - or rather, not showing - href'ed link has also made it harder to recognize spam. I have to examine the messages in edit mode to spot any URLs that might be hidden there. Not reporting these messages as spam does help the spammers to get a good reputation at the Mollom Anti-Spam service, and that's not what we want...

I agree and i do always report to mollum

My point is just that , in the worst possible scenario possible, in case some spam remain not decteted because the refarral links went stripped away, it become much more harmless for our users

(and not rewarding for spammer)

Several spammers switch back to plain ,visible links but then is trivial to detect and delete

Ok, I didn't know that there were that much spam scripts.
It may also help to detect spam with another color scheme at the registry.
For example registry.gimp.org is harder to detect than registry.gimp.org.

Back to Edit:
Could you reach Ingo, I still can't edit my scripts. Shall I write him again?

i have no special way to contact Ingo
when i did i used the contact button of his profile

From his last message on this side he believe the problem solved

Normally, a spammer will add link hired a signature or in a smiley. It is difficult to delete all posts of spammers. My company try the best to do but this is can not complete. Do you have any ways to help me pls? :)
