Wiki registration issues (email broken)

Post by thenendo » Sat Jan 17, 2015 10:27 am

I created an account on the wiki, but the sending of the post-registration email seems to be borked:

I think this implies, according to the group rights page, that I can never become emailconfirmed, but I guess I can still become autoconfirmed by editing some talk pages?

Anyway, FYI.

I'll look into the Email issue, but in the meantime if you could provide your wiki username here or in PM I can (hopefully) set your account to be working + enable editing capability (which we have to enable manually anyway; it's the only way to keep spammers/etc. from destroying the content).

Give it a shot now. You should find new tabs at the top of pages, e.g. Edit.

Cool. As for the SMTP situation, I'll bring it up with WhoaMan in a Moderators thread. I can definitely see that the Wiki configuration is using that server as an SMTP relay, and it sounds like it no longer works right. We'll get it fixed. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
