I cannot get the confirmation code for my wiki account

Post by LOVER$BOY »

Hello guys!

I couldn't edit a wiki page (CTF BRAWL 14) cause I wanted to change my team in it. I found out that I need to confirm my email address. So I went through it and requested a confirmation code but I never received one.

Can I get a confirmation code please?

Stating your wiki login name would help.

Apparently, you can trigger a re-validation yourself if you change your email address in your preferences:

(just change it twice, obv.)
I couldn't find out how to do it for you, apart from hacking the database.

Hey I have another problem.

Apparently it's not letting me add my website to my User text because I don't have enough privileges.

Maybe you first need to create the page, then edit the link in later? Usually, you should be allowed to add links, they should just require you to enter a CAPTCHA. Works for my test user.
Can you post the full error message if it persists? That way, we can google for solutions.

Ya, that way worked. Strange...

No, I don't have the error message with me, sorry...

Your edit got caught by the spam filter. I tweaked it to be less strict.

This was the error message. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve it?
