#5434 Can't log in to fp.o wiki
Closed: Fixed None Opened 6 years ago by drose.

= bug description =
I can no longer log in to the Fedora Project Wiki. My last wiki edit on record was in March 2016.

= bug analysis =
When attempting to log in, I receive the error message:[[BR]]
"You have entered an invalid username and password. If you are certain that your username and password are correct, confirm that you can log in to the Fedora Account System and that you have signed the CLA."

I can still log in to FAS. I have previously signed the CLA, and my account shows that the status is active and the CLA is signed. https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/user/view/drose

I updated my password just in case, but that did not resolve the issue.

Unfortunately, due to an increase in spam, we've had to further restrict the editing of the wiki to users that are a member of both the CLA groups and an additional group. Can you gain membership into another group?

Can you gain membership into another group?
The contribution I make at this time is solely related to Fedora remix-related wiki documentation. There doesn't appear to be an existing group that would be an ideal fit for that contribution, other than a general "wikieditors" group (https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ticket/5398#comment:3), if such a group is created.

I looked through the groups when I first created my Fedora account, and at that time I didn't feel it would be fitting to apply to any (beyond the two signee groups I am in by virtue of registering).

In light of the current situation, I would only be applying to groups for the extraneous purpose of being able to carry on with wiki contributions, and that seems abusive of the purposes of these groups. Is there another way?

There's a number of folks in this same case, so I have created a 'wikiedit' fas group and added you to it.

You should be able to edit the wiki again now.

We can use this group for any other folks that need/want to edit the wiki but are not otherwise in another group.
