ZDoom Wiki Thread

We sure do have a lot of rules and guidelines threads - find them all here, and please make sure you've read them! Also, community-wide announcements (that aren't major ZDoom News) go here as well.

There have been some spambots again over the recent days. I deleted most of them but this should be monitored.

I'm interested in contributing to the wiki, but it says registrations are currently closed due to spambots.

I don't like the new layout at all and I want the old layout back. Can you make it an option to allow use of the old wiki layout?

New Layout? It looks the same to me...

Problem solved, It was loading in mobile view for some reason and I had to run ccleaner real quick to clean up firefox cookies.

Hi. I tried to create a page for "ZDoom Community Top Mods of All Time" on the wiki, and got permission error.
Is it because my account just doesn't have permission to create pages, or the title is too long, or maybe something else?

I think the message is as clear and concise as possible?

I didn't find any information about account permission, but it seems I cannot create any page. Okay then.

Your user name is "Mmaulwurff", right? I think it might have something to do with user rights, or lack there of.

Yes, it is. Do I have to make some number of approved edits before I can create new pages, or just ask for permission?

I believe only admins and above can bypass the titleblacklist, which, to prevent spam, bans pretty much every single page title and account name from being created.

Is "reset password" the only way to change my wiki password? Apparently my wiki account is still using an old, crap one. Nothing is readily visible in [wiki=Special:SpecialPages]SpecialPages[/wiki].

I've been searching the forum and the Wiki to find out some more information about the relatively new spotlight actors. However, information seems sparse. Any chance someone who knows all the ins and outs of these could add them to the Wiki please? I don't think they are there at the moment.
