Can't Edit Wiki
« on: September 25, 2012, 13:01 »

Hi,

I just registered on the forums to get edit access to the wiki. It says I should log in with my forum credentials. But they don't work; I just get the usual "invalid login/password" message.

What's up with that?

You can't edit the wiki until you're at least a "Lance Corporal", which is at least 20 posts. It's an anti-spam thing (you'd be surprised how much spam we got on the previous wiki).

At this point, however, we haven't really had enough issues with forum spammers to require that high of a post count. Maybe when Kornel gets back to create the AliensRL Wiki, he can relax the edit requirement to something like "Private FC" (5 posts).

Okay, makes sense. I would request Kornel makes the correct message appear (need 20 posts / account is not yet uber enough).

Cheers,
