New wiki account registration procedure

Post by shadowm » February 12th, 2016, 10:12 pm

NOTE: These instructions are for registering on the wiki only. If you came here to register for the multiplayer server, all you need to do is use your forum credentials with. You do not need to be registered on the wiki for the MP server.

Hi there!

Over the past few weeks there has been a massive increase in spam activity on the wiki, forcing us to revert to previous database backups in two opportunities. Because of the sheer amount of disruptive changes and the fact that we do not currently have enough people to help manage spam, we have decided to disable wiki registrations by logged-off users entirely. This means that from now on, if you need to register an account on the wiki you will need to contact our active wiki administrators, who will do it for you. The procedure for this is as follows:
  • Head over to this link to compose a private message to the Wiki Administrators group on the forums.
  • State your desired account name and email address in your PM, provide a relevant subject and hit Submit.
  • An administrator will send you a confirmation PM as soon as possible, and a temporary password will be sent to your email address.
  • You will be prompted to change your password the first time you log in.
We understand that this is not an ideal solution in the long-term, but with our current activity levels it seems a fair compromise to allow us to keep hosting a wiki for our community.
