Discussing an option with the community to test
CAPTCHAs with an email requirement makes sense to me. I would support a
small, carefully designed test. If someone is motivated to create a
Wikimedia account and they don't want to register an email, they can be
given the option to have someone help them to set up an account via IRC,
Facebook, or other communications methods.
It would be nice to have a link that leads the user to a
#wikipedia-accountcreation channel for getting help creating an account.
There are few ways to get thelp for an inexperienced user if they fail
at the create account form. It is orthogonal however on whether we use a
captcha or not.
