Nope, I believe it is busted again, with little hope of getting it fixed before the end of time...

But try this page: http://www.mepis.org/docs/en/index.php?title=Special:Userlogin&type=signup
Do you see the whole sheebang?

If not, you can PM me, I can give you an old one of mine that you can use.

Just tried this today. It's still a no-go.

Went to edit the myth wiki and tried all the options listed in this post, but I can't get logged in to mod the wiki...

Unfortunately, I can't do much about this. But if you guys PM me I can give you a generic login that you can use.

We appreciate the help.

I sent an e-mail to Warren and Matt, hopefully they will be able to do something about it.

Matt is the one who has to do it, but has not been successful in past attempts.

EDIT: I think I found a hack. I sign in, then log out, then click on the link for Return to Special:Userlogin, then I click on Create an Account link and I get a screen where I can set up a new user. I seemed to be successfull creating a userid and password for cozwurth and GoMan (using TBA as email address). Please let me know if it works, then any registered user can set up an account for someone.

EDIT EDIT: it worked apparently, so we have ignition, Houston!

I must be missing something here as I don't ever remember registering seperate for the Wiki. I tried to register there and it would not let me so I just logged in with my Mepislovers ID and password and was in like Flint with no problems. So, if one is registered with this forum are they also automatically registered with the Wiki?; if not they should be IMHO. JBoman

I don't know if it's been implimented but there was talk of doing so.
Yes, even I am dishonest. Not in many ways, but in some. Forty-one, I think it is.

Maybe Karen has been able to fix it--I sent her an email about the problem yesterday and she is pretty good!
