First time

Please fill out [[GetText(Name)]], [[GetText(Password)]], [[GetText(Password repeat)]] and [[GetText(Email)]].

(!) It is best to choose a WikiName (like Firstname``Lastname) as username to get your changes and signatures link back to your Wiki``Homepage. Your email is needed for you to be able to get notifications on page changes and to recover lost login data.

If you click on [[GetText(Create Profile)]], a user profile will be created for you and you will be logged in immediately.

Logging in

If want to re-login, just use [[GetText(Name)]] and [[GetText(Password)]] and click on [[GetText(Login)]]. If you forgot your password, provide your email address and click on [[GetText(Mail me my account data)]].

Changing settings

[[GetText(Save)]] updates your profile (stored on the wiki server).

Logging out

[[GetText(Logout)]] clears the cookie created at login.

The Cookie

/!\ The "ID", shown in the response page, gets saved as a cookie in your browser for the system to temporarily recognize you. It will expire next midnight - except if you choose [[GetText(Remember login information forever)]] (after being logged in), then the cookie won't expire.
