Account Creation

NOTE: Account creation has been DISABLED to prevent unauthorized access. If you need access, contact User:admin. Only admin can set up access.

Administrator, make sure you are logged in and then follow this simple step to create the accounts.

  1. Go to Special:Userlogin, when logged in as a sysop.
  2. Click on "Create an account" to get to the account creation form.
  3. Enter a user name and an email address, and click the "by email" button.
  4. The account will be created with a random password which is then emailed to the given address.

Account Management

NOTE: in order to create an new administrator, you need the administrator create an account first and then use Special:UserRights to promote the new account to administrator and bureaucrat.

Finding Existing Account

Merge and Delete Account

[Special:UserMerge] Wiki does NOT allow deletion of users. However, you can MERGE it with ANOTHER user and then subsequently delete the old user.

Therefore, use this when you have duplicate account.
