Try Special:ChangePassword.

That's what I needed, thanks. (I didn't pick up the word "credentials" apparently. Shame on me.)

Code: Select allExpand view
The user name "Jakob" has been banned from creation. It matches the following blacklist entry: .* <autoconfirmed> # Stop everything

I'm looking to register on the Wiki to write some documentation (specifically on the behavior of certain audio cvars), but it seems registration is currently closed. Are there plans to enable it again in the near future?

AFAIK you need to ask Rachael for an account now. See edit comment here.

Sysops include you and Blue Shadow, et al.

I mainly did that so you don't have to pop the valve for every single registration request, and doing it manually is better anyway.

I just noticed that the Wiki has a number of colour presets listed in the hudMessage page. However, some time ago I accidentally used one in a script that wasn't listed (CR_TEAL) due to looking at the wrong page for information (Print). It worked, so I have only just spotted that it isn't listed on the hudmessage page.

So, I checked out zdefs.acs in my acs directory and found that the following are listed:

Code: Select allExpand view
#define CR_UNTRANSLATED         -1
#define CR_BRICK                0
#define CR_TAN                  1
#define CR_GRAY                 2
#define CR_GREY                 2
#define CR_GREEN                3
#define CR_BROWN                4
#define CR_GOLD                 5
#define CR_RED                  6
#define CR_BLUE                 7
#define CR_ORANGE               8
#define CR_WHITE                9
#define CR_YELLOW               10
#define CR_BLACK            12
#define CR_LIGHTBLUE         13
#define CR_CREAM            14
#define CR_OLIVE            15
#define CR_DARKGREEN         16
#define CR_DARKRED            17
#define CR_DARKBROWN         18
#define CR_PURPLE            19
#define CR_DARKGRAY            20
#define CR_DARKGREY            20
#define CR_CYAN               21
#define CR_ICE               22
#define CR_FIRE               23
#define CR_SAPPHIRE            24
#define CR_TEAL               25


So, there seem to be a few more presets than there are Wiki entries. Specifically:

CR_ICE
CR_FIRE
CR_SAPPHIRE
CR_TEAL

I would add them myself but I don't actually know the colour ranges and I wasn't sure how to add them, complete with graphics, on the wiki page either. Could someone with the skillz please add them? :)

Added.

You can get the color ranges from the TEXTCOLO lump, by the way.

Somebody fix an wrong "goto [+offset]" example on Flow control section, please. It's still looks a bit confusing. There should be highlighted 3rd A-frame.

Hello!
Trying to register on Wiki, but it says me absolutely any name is "banned" because it matches ".*" regexp... Or, does it uses phpBB auth integration? Gonna to try...

EDIT: Nope, it won't work.

Also, just found a message above:

I'm not alone who has this junk...

You'll have some admin create an account for you. There's just too many spambots that'd otherwise flood the wiki with their junk.
Maybe that message should actually help a user trying to register?

PM Rachael, Blue Shadow, or me with your email address and your desired username, and then we can create an account for you.

Sorry for the inconvenience but the spambot horde was unrelenting.

Okay, thanks for account creation! :3

However, I see another issue: by default, it's a total forbid of page creation/editing. Looks like you need to also grant a write permission to manually-created users...

EDIT: Thanks! Gez has been fixed that! :3

Few questions about ZDoom wiki.

1. Who put the page there?
1. Who owns the page?
2. Will it be up indefinitely?

I only ask as it's an amazing source of info and would be unthinkable to ever lose it :)
