You should be able to use your BYOAC username/password to log into the wiki. Not working?

It's the underscore '_' in your username. You can fix this by doing this:

  • Go to your profile -> Account Related Settings
  • Find "Username:" and click "change"
  • Remove the Underscore

Don't worry, the "Name" category is what everybody will see, but you have to use that modified username to log into the forum as well as the wiki.

Let me know if you still have issues.

same except i cant take out the underscores due to an account named ryantheleach, can somebody merge that one with my current username, as i no longer even remember the email let alone the password i used for that one :S

anyways understool if you cant merge them but ive also tried changing my username to other names with no success, however ive been changing the anme and not the username as i cant find how to change the username.

Danny,

You didn't follow my directions correctly. I've taken the liberty to fix it for you; the server should have sent you a message to reset your password.

Ryan,

I've deleted the other account. You can now change your username as you specified.

Something do with the outage perhaps ?

Cheers

EDIT: Just saw saint's note ... but still can't login to the wiki. Wasn't urgent, though.
