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.

Bonjour,
Je souhaiterais pouvoir éditer le wiki dans sa partie française, pour pouvoir effectuer quelques corrections ou précision lors de ma découverte des divers tutos Freecad.
Mon pseudo serait le même que celui du forum : gnrc

Cordialement
Chris G.

PS: Je suis aussi contributeur dans Wikipédia.

This is an English forum. Please write your replies in English here.

In any case, this topic has been superseded by the one pinned at the top of the Wiki forum:
