New wiki user issue

Post by pepik » Sat Dec 13, 2014 8:14 pm

(Obviously) I'm a registered forum user. When I try to log in to edit the wiki, it says that my username can't be found. Ok, I thought that I'd be able to use one login on shapeoko.com, but that's fine, I'll just create a wiki account. Unfortunately, when I fill out my info and click submit, the page is blank and I never get an email (or whatever the next step is). It sends me to: http://www.shapeoko.com/wiki/index.php? ... leshooting

I'm using chrome on Ubuntu 14.04, but I tried FF and IE on Win 7 as well.

Please help!

Am I the only one seeing this? Is there a contact email I should try? Are wiki users restricted? It's still an issue, I just tried again.

There was an incident a bit ago where someone was trying a dictionary attack against the wiki users --- this may be a symptom of that. twforeman is the sysadmin for the site --- I reported your post and hopefully he or one of the other administrators on the wiki will be able to sort this out.

Hmm. Looks like new user creation on the Wiki is broken.

I'll have to investigate. Thanks for the heads-up!

This is fixed now. The captcha provider that we were using was discontinued.

You should be able to create an account now.

and we already have two bot accounts.... (which have been deleted/disabled).

Sad.

and ~ half-a-dozen more, but I've re-checked, and I don't think there were any false positives and I see your account being made and nothing else.

Could we get a slightly more robust wiki user verification scheme?
