Trying to get an confirmation mail ? failed for me , have had my wiki acount for 6 months never been able to edit or get the confirmation mail ?

Must be some stupid mistake from my side, but there is basically no contact information on that wiki ?

Who admins it ? where can I ask for directions on how to proceed ?

Check your spam folder.

The mail I got was sent from: webmaster at slimdevices dot com
If you are using hotmail or similar you might have to make sure to register this mail address as a safe non spam address in your mail account.

If you still don't get it to work, send a PM or mail to Michael(mherger) and ask him to make sure someone inside Logitech checks it, but it worked a few days ago for some other user so I suspect it's just that it's caught by some anti spam software on the way. Michael might notice this thread and check it anyway if we just wait a bit.

They might have spam folders even though you don't see them, my old mail provider had spam folders but only people who purchased their hosting service got to see the contents of it, the result was that some mail just disappeared and I wondered why. I no longer use that mail provider for obvious reasons (it wasn't bahnhof).

Might be a outbound address only, so you might not be able to send mail to it.
If you have a gmail or hotmail account, maybe you can try if that works better ?

It's possible to change the e-mail later if you initially register it with a temporary e-mail address, but you won't be able to change it unless you can also confirm the new address.

Subscription must be working: From the amount of spam we see, there must be at least one or two new users every week... As Erland said: most likely an issue with some spamfilter somewhere.

Feel free to send me your account details to michael št slimdevices dott com. Not sure I can do much myself, but we'll see.

Daniel Barrett has voulenteered to upgrade MediaWiki from the ancient version in use today, to a modern version. Please vote for "bug" 17797 (http://bugs.slimdevices.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17797) if you'd like the wiki software to be up to date.

And the search is nearly useless. Even if the info is there, it's very difficult to find. Maybe a software update would help that.

Error:

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:
The action you have requested is limited to users in one of the groups: Bots, Administrators, Bureaucrats, emailconfirmed, developer.



Which is correct, i'm not listed as member of any of those groups. But on my preferences:

E-mail confirmation: Your e-mail address was authenticated on 29 January 2010 at 04:04

so my mail _is_ confirmed. Now i changed the address, received confirmation mail, clicked link and nothing. Still not emailconfirmed and still not able to edit.
