Allowed Values:[edit]

Why is it not possible to limit the number to less than 10? One would be nice if your site is being spammed.Dejvid 22:34, 13 August 2007 (UTC)

I guess this was an old limitation, since it works fine with 1 now. --Kipcool (talk) 23:24, 14 June 2013 (UTC)

Why memcached[edit]

Why is memcached required? For smaller wikis memcached seems not necessary but they are spammed as well.

It works with any cache, for example APC (suitable for smaller wikis)
just set $wgMainCacheType = CACHE_ACCEL;

Why is *any* cache required? None of other throttles discussed at Manual:$wgRateLimits and Manual:Edit throttling require a cache -- not even
$wgRateLimits['edit']['ip']. --DavidCary (talk) 16:39, 17 March 2014 (UTC)
