Captchas are a simple test to determine whether or not an edit is made by a bot -- an automated wiki editing program, often used by spammers and vandals. Users trying to make certain types of edits will be asked to type in the letters they see in an image, or to solve a simple equation, before saving the page.

FANDOM uses the ConfirmEdit extension to protect our communities from these undesirable edits.

Can I prevent the display of captchas?Edit

Registered users who have been with FANDOM for four days or more should not see the captcha. If you do, please log out and back in again.

Authorized bots can be exempted from captchas. Please ask the Community Team if you need your editing bot flagged in this way.
