The name you log in with

Your username is a sequence of alphanumeric characters and underscores that uniquely identifies you to the system. The exact format of the username depends upon how your system is configured.

This system is configured to use usernames.

Your Wikiname is WikiGuest and your username is guest.

You cannot alter your username: you have to get the administrator to do this for you.

The username is checked for invalid characters using the below filter. Any characters matching this filter will invalidate the username.
^[^\s\*?~^\$@%`"'&;|<>\x00-\x1f]+$

Contact your site administrator for further assistance.

How to Find Your User Name

These steps may not be applicable to your system.

Look in WikiUsers - if your name is followed by a dash and a word, usually lowercase, this is what you log in with.

e.g.

  • WikiGuest - guest - 05 Sep 2008

Would mean that WikiGuest would log in using the username 'guest'

If, on the other hand, if your entry is like this:

  • WikiGuest - WikiGuest 05 Sep 2008

Then you would log in using your WikiName, in this case 'WikiGuest'
