To Evan: Hi, I'm that Hans from the Peru section. I already have tried to get a login, and it seems that I have. But I don't see any difference. My modifications of the articles are still listet with my IP instead of my login name and I never have been asked to write my user page.
Could their have occured a problem or is their something I didn't understand. Do you athenticate the loged in users with cookies? Maybe, I have blocked them.
User Name Characters
The advice on this page says about a username: It can have letters and numbers, but no spaces or punctuation marks.
I do not believe that is correct. A username should only have letters and numbers but it can have spaces or underscores (_), which are seen as the same character, as well as most other pubctuation marks. However, the one character that any user name should NOT have is an ampersand (&) character as that character is used to separate the GET variables in a URL and WILL cause the username to be incorrectly interpreted and WILL make the User and User Talk pages difficult to access.
The problem is that the MediaWiki software does not check usernames for validity. - Huttite 03:53, 7 February 2009 (EST)
Unified log-in for wikitravel.org
As I use more than a dozen wikis of Wikimedia where unified log-in allows one username and password to log in and out without registering at each wiki, I wonder if we can also have the same feature for wikitravel.org as I would also like to edit Wikitravel Shared and Chinese Wikitravel, but no unified log-in here is discouraging and inconvenient.Jusjih 11:58, 27 January 2011 (EST)
