Hello, i'm trying to edit the following page:

Since i add a link in the modification i get this message:

Your edit includes new external links. To protect the wiki against automated spam, we kindly ask you to type the two words you see in the box below:

But there is no code below :(

I tried several computers with different operating systems and browsers but i can't see any code or any captcha dialog. Could be a server error? If it can, how to solve it?

Thank you.

Thanks for the wiki code, I was able to add it, having no problems (and no captcha or whatever). I used the (current) Firefox 44 on Linux. Maybe some wiki config was changed, or your wiki account was too new? I do not know. If you experience the issue again, I suggest to report it on Talk:Wiki.

Maybe is due the account freshness. I created it just for add that edit. Anyway the weird thing is that i could send the modification the first time (i could see the captcha), but then i could not add anything because of missing code box. I even tried several browser... so i don't know what could be the reason. Thank you so much for your reply and your help.

I'd also assume that ad and script blockers may cause the lamented behaviour.

I am not sure about the ad and script blockers as I don't have any on my new browser. I tried safari, chrome,opera...

I'm having the exact same issu, but restoring the settings didn't help :( I was able to edit the very same page few months ago.
