Added contact methods and other improvements

I added a simple and unobstructive contact form and a chat to #SSF! WordPress to enhance the contact methods palette for visitors. Domain was renewed and an ok mobile menu was set up for the mobile visitors of the #SSF! wiki.

Tidio.com for hassle-free chat for WordPress

After looking at bunch of chat solutions for #SSF! Tidio.com was the top in free tier adequacy (and existence of) and how highly it was rated and promoted by happy users and it was a breeze to setup. The same chat can also be accessed at Ban Covert Modeling! #BCM!, which is still a possible vector against the sound-like-anyone-machines, as there is no reason to let criminals trade in libraries of covert voice models

Now added a contact form and a chat powered by tidio

WPForms.com and hCaptcha

For the contact form I used WPForms.com which I have found to be a versatile, free of charge and reliable way of doing contact forms. For the CAPTCHA I chose to go with hCaptcha.com and followed this HOWTO by WPForms.com.

I have used Google reCAPTCHA previously to protect contact forms, but the WPForms people were giving a nudge to use services of some other company and not always just Google, Google, Google, Google…

Finally a proper mobile menu for #SSF! wiki mobile visitors

To provide a view for mobile viewers of the MediaWiki the installation [[mw:Extension:MobileFrontend]] and associated mobile-optimized [[mw:Skin:Minerva Neue]] and some subsequent configuration is required.

As of 2021-01 the mobile menu of the  extension MobileFrontend requires a bit of creative hacking. The issue is known to the MediaWiki developers. Automatic inclusion of the MediaWiki:Sidebar was not deemed a wise route of action by the MediaWiki developers, due to space restrictions.

With this instruction / example I was able to make the mobile visitors have a suitable navigation available for them by editing MediaWiki:Mobile.js. You can toggle between the mobile mode and desktop mode by clicking the link at the bottom of each wiki page.

Domain renewed till 2022

Recently a the domain name of #SSF! was renewed in good time until 2022. Could consider bumping the registration to 2028, also there the 15th is a Saturday.

Updated Ban-Covert-Modeling.org with info on digital sound-alikes

Recently I updated the contents of the Ban-Covert-Modeling.org with everything the SSF! wiki has on digital sound-alikes or sound-like-anyone-machines, including my legal proposition to ban covert voice modeling, because there is absolutely no sense to let criminal organizations acquire, trade and grow their libraries of fake voices stolen from real people.

The domain is paid until Wednesday 14 March 2029, so much for my “certainty” that nothing will show up that that will be so massive in scale that a change of domain is needed i.e. Adequate Porn Watcher AI.

Ban-covert-modeling.org was the predecessor of SSF! until the idea of the Adequate Porn Watcher AI showed up and this key method and the domain put together became illogical.
