On Sunday 2021-02-07 I was alerted by User:Haitokin via the Consumerium Whatsapp hotline, that he was unable to edit the wiki using the mobile interface provided by mw:Extension:MobileFrontend, when not logged in.

This is probably due to MobileFrontend not fully supporting mw:Extension:ConfirmEdit. This seems to be a semi-known issue.

The documentation of MobileFrontend does not claim that it supports ReCaptchaNoCaptcha, but the ones it supports are even weaker and we are having problems of bots passing the current CAPTCHA.

Relevant wiki configuration:

wfLoadExtensions( array( 'ConfirmEdit', 'ConfirmEdit/ReCaptchaNoCaptcha' ) );
$wgCaptchaClass = 'ReCaptchaNoCaptcha';
