How to get wiki editing permissions

Postby NormandC » Sun Jun 15, 2014 6:46 pm

Thank you for interest in improving the FreeCAD documentation!

For spam prevention, only registered users can edit the wiki, and only wiki administrators can create accounts.

To get a wiki account, please send a PM (private message) to yorik and jmaustpc with your email address. Sending your PM to both may ensure that your account gets created sooner. Please do not PM me, I am no longer active here for the foreseeable future.

Note (added by jmautpc) for users with a new FORUM account. YOU MUST HAVE MADE AT LEAST ONE FIRST POST IN ANY OF OUR FORUMS, WHICH WE HAVE TO APPROVE, BEFORE YOU CAN SEND A PM (PRIVATE MESSAGE) . This is an anti spam measure, that has resulted in nearly all spam being remove by us admins/moderators before users get to see it on our forums. If you find this inconvenient...blame all those idiot spammers out there...we would also love to not have to waste our time doing this.

You may also request your wiki account on the #freecad IRC channel if a wiki admin is logged in.

Unless you request otherwise, your wiki username will be the same as your forum username, but with a capital letter as the wiki requires it.

Once your account is created, you will get an email notification with a randomly generated password that you will be able to change in your wiki settings.

Reason: added a note regarding new forum account users being required to have a "first post" approved, before they can send a PM.

Hi,

I'm new user of this forum ( I subscribe to get help about " HowTo Edit the wiki " in order to translate bits of tutorials from english to french.
So I've tried to send PM with my e-mail to wiki admin's to create my wiki account...
But as I'm newby on the forum => I don't have permission for PM :mrgreen:

I fell a few :twisted: !

What are the conditions to get this permission for PM ?

Thanks

Since I'm very new to this forum I do not have permission for sending private messages either. #freecad IRC I visited from time to time hoping to catch someone. Thank you in advance for a wiki account! I'm looking forward bringing in my modest support.

Hi all,

I am new to FreeCad and wanting to draw gears (to test my futur 3D printer). For this I used "Macro 3D Parametric Curve" and find it limited so I made improvements :
- adding 3 helping variables added a, b and c,
- enlarging GUI,
- more flexible GUI,
- basic error mangement.

So I want to put it back on the wiki. So I need an account and have the same trouble as nh3oh and plok.

Best regards,
Laurent Despeyroux.

Hi Civilian, Welcome to FreeCAD :D

Once your first post is approved you can send a PM.
So, you should be good to go now.
Thanks for wanting to help with the Wiki.

Hi,

I'm new to FreeCAD as well, and only just started working through the tutorials. I'm keen to fix up a few typos/spelling issues as I go...

I'll send a PM requesting a Wiki account once this message has been approved :-)

Alistair.
