I saw about this in Slashdot first and was quite shocked. Really, I didn't visit the site for a few days and Jeremy creates a new furore I like this idea very much. In truth, this will in tim create a big knowledgebase that is easier to search and use than even tldp.org

Jeremy,

edit: david_ross explained it to me. I don't know how the box in my prefs got unchecked but it is all OK now. Sorry about that
-------------------------------


Something I just noticed.

When I am not logged into the Wiki site everything looks nice. When I log in however, things look different. I doesn't matter what browser I use. Things used to look fine. Words with [[around them]] would always be a link.

Peace,
Whitehat

P.S. is there a "Wiki Questions/Suggestions" forum?...should there be?

That is the second way that pages that don't exist yet are linked to, the first being with the links in a different colour.

You can change it in your preferences:
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/wiki/Special:Preferences

3rd option down in the right hand column.

Questions and suggestions would be fine in the LQ wiki mailing list. But, that's what I think.

Hi

I know this is an old post

my eyesight can not see how to create a new account as I know my questions username info does not carry over

see attached image, and no clickable link to create account, cookies enabled otherwise I could not login in LQ


I have seen this post but none the wiser
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...nt-4175467360/

so then I found this link which is
http://wiki.linuxquestions.org/index...in&type=signup

but it says

We've disabled LQ Wiki account creation temporarily due to a massive spam attack.

slightly offtopic but relevant to spam

Have you guys considered more anti-spam measures such as images?

I like the rotation method as people with poor eyesight will intuitively grasp this
--or English as a second language

The wiki is due for some updates that should address the spam issue properly.

The first letter of all mediawiki usernames are capitalized.

LQ mods don't have any elevated permissions at the wiki. I've synced the email address for Aus9 at the wiki with your account here.
