Help getting new Wiki accounts
March 17, 2016 08:28PM
If you would like a RepRap Wiki account and you do not have one already, please send a PM to MattMoses or DeuxVis or thejollygrimreaper and we can set one up for you.

In the PM please include a valid email address and your desired username for the wiki account.

At the moment, the only way to get a new wiki account is to have an admin set one up for you manually. We have been having trouble with spam on the wiki, and for this reason new account creation has been limited. The spam problem is ongoing and we are still fine-tuning our response, so please be patient. smiling smiley

I see reason for limit new account creation. OK. But pls, put 'Create account' button with link not to create account form but to explanation page.
I did 15 minutes of futile search on all possible wiki pages - it's Log in button here, it must be Create account button somewhere too, IMHO.

Agreed. I created an account and spent 15 or 20 minutes trying to figure out why I couldn't add the description for M100, G27 and G26.

I agree with the obstacles for a new account. It makes the wiki less prone to occasional disruptions. This is very important because the reprap wiki is also a repository of prior art information against patents. The more difficult it is to modify the contents, the more reliable and court-friendly the information is.

Making something difficult is not a particularly good way to mitigate integrity.
Surely version control, and peer review is better.

So it is difficult to get accounts in wikis?
