I'd also recommend some extra extensions be put in place to protect the wiki from vandals:
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:AbuseFilter AbuseFilter]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:AntiSpoof AntiSpoof]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmEdit ConfirmEdit]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SimpleAntiSpam SimpleAntiSpam]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:SpamBlacklist SpamBlacklist]
 
 
In case of wiki emergency, these extensions are also particularly useful for wiki admins:
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:CheckUser CheckUser]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Nuke Nuke]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Renameuser Renameuser]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Title_Blacklist Title_Blacklist]
 
 
Finally, some front-end stuff to make our wiki users more comfortable:
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WikiEditor WikiEditor]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:WikiLove WikiLove]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Thanks Thanks]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:DismissableSiteNotice DismissableSiteNotice]
 
* [https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:UrlShortener UrlShortener]
 
 
Quite the shopping list, huh? No doubt the net admin will baulk at some of those, particularly CheckUser and Nuke, which are some very powerful wiki black magic spells. My view is that it is better to have them and not need them, than to need them and not have them.

Some of my wiki magic incantations rely on extensions to be added to the wiki back-end, such as:
