Do I need an account to use the wiki

A Wealth of Knowledge

< Help:Contents

On this site everybody can read everything and edit site content. You don't need account to enjoy the unrestricted access to the knowledge.

You are encouraged to create account if you want to add or edit content (read how). You will also get reward points when you have an account, so taking the 30 seconds to get an account is well worth it.

Creating a user account means that you supply a username (your real name and/or a nickname) and a password. The system will reject a username that is already in use. A user account is created only once. You are then "logged in". Next time you log in you supply your username again and demonstrate with the password that you are the same person.

Edits you make are recorded under your username. Other users will be able to recognize you by your username when you make changes to pages.


  • You will have your own user page where you can write a bit about yourself, and a user talk page which you can use to communicate with other users.
  • You will be able to mark an edit as minor, which avoids inconvenience for other users.
  • You will be able to keep track of changes to pages you are interested in using a watchlist.
