View Full Version : Wiki blues

I hate whining, but I'm going to whine now.

I want to put something useful--my provisional Fluxbox/Gnome experiment-- on the wiki, finally. But I've forgotten my password. So I go to the wiki and ask it to give e-mail me my pass.

"use the launchpad password recovery feature" I'm told.

Well, at some point, I had registered there, too...probably to look through the bugzilla for universe?

I reset my password and log int...to launchpad. OK, where's the wiki now?I go back to the wiki, log in with my newly-reset password and...what? WRONG PASSWORD? fsck!

This is going to sound like n00b ranting, but man, why do I have to go through this kind of hell to post on the wiki? Finally, when I feel like I have something useful to give back to the community that's given me so much, I'm frustrated at almost every turn.

If I'm being unreasonable and I'm totally mistaken, please correct me.

In short: Official Wiki team needs to figure out a way to ease things up there. As long as neophytes as me think posting there is not half as easy as it should, it won't get the needed development.
