I wasn't aware of that. I'll see what can be done about this.

I've answered your PM.
There are times when this would not be convenient, but in general it sounds like a good anti-spam measure to me. Imagine if these spammers, that we don't approve, could send us all PMs as well.... :)

I thought about it too, but what would be the use for a spammer to write PMs to other users? Might it not be too much for spambots?

Hi Norm
I am possibly worrying about it too much, .... :)

Its probably a default setting somewhere.

I didn't find it too onerous to post a message on the forum, personally. Of course, minimising barriers to wiki editing for legitimate users is a good thing.

Another option might be to install http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmAccount , to remove the PM requirement for new wiki accounts? -Ian-

Hi,

I regularly see mistakes in the French documentation that I would like to correct on the fly. Please, give me the permissions to edit the wiki.

Kind regards,

Hi Maxagaz,

You now have a wiki account, you should have received an automated email.

Found a small mistake on https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Draft_Text

The command for makeText, uses the keyword screenmode, however in the current version ( 0.18 ) the keyword is screen

I will change if given wiki permissions.

I just created your wiki account. You should have already received a notification to the email address you registered for the forum.
