Is anybody familiar with rate of created accounts on this wiki? A concerned editor showed up in my talk page.
Topic on Project:Current issues
Creation of new accounts?
The account creation at Special:Log does look odd. I thought these were automatically duplicated in CentralAuth. I'm going to see if someone on IRC can look.
<hexmode> who do I ask to look at the account creation rate here https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Log? quiddity? ragesoss?
<quiddity> looking... [11:58]

<Reedy> At least at a graphing level, it doesn't look out of the ordinary
<ragesoss> looks like all those accounts are the same ones recently being created on meta.
<ragesoss> do you now automatically get a mediawiki account when you create a new SUL?
<Reedy> CA will propogate it
<ragesoss> or was that always the case?
<Reedy> I dunno if it's delayed via job queue
<Reedy> Not always the case, but it's been like that quite a while now [12:02]
<Reedy> Since SUL finalisation stuff
<hexmode> Is it ok if I copy-paste this on the thread?
And some of those usernames are spam or profane and should be blocked.
K, I'll try...
