Authority to approve people for Wiki

Reported by: robe Owned by: christian, sac@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: SysAdmin/Wiki Keywords:


I've been informed that some folks are having trouble signing up for FOSS4G Boston Code Sprint because they don't have accounts.

To expedite things, can I be given permission to approve wiki account signups?

Thanks, Regina

I welcome Regina in Burocrat Land. What's your Wiki account name Regina ?

I made you a Burocrat, take a look at the "Recent Changes" page, you should get a NOTICE on the top of the page when there are pending requests, with a link to the management page for those:

NOTE: many spammers try to cheat there, make sure emails are confirmed and references are given.

There's also an alias receiving a notification when new people request access, do you want to be added there too ? If so let me know (in private if you want) which email address to use for that

nah not need for that. Already get too much email. I'll check the recent changes when I get breaks.

I am getting problem reports from people that want to sign up for the 2020 Code Sprint.

Can I help with wiki account approvals?
