Logging in and creating a new account

Click on log in/create account link in the upper right corner of the page and follow the simple instructions there: login if you have already your username and password or create a new account.

Verification of the new account

Note, that if you created a new account, the account must be verified. Unverified users are not granted edit and upload file privileges! To verify your account, our server automatically sends an email to the address you provided in the account request form. Usually it takes just a few seconds. If you do not receive the confirmation mail, first check if the message has not been rejected by your spam filter. Otherwise, please contact (Tomasz Haupt).

The confirmation message looks like that:

Someone, probably you, from IP address,
has registered an account "Your Name" with this e-mail address on EVOWiki.

To confirm that this account really does belong to you and activate
e-mail features on EVOWiki, open this link in your browser:

If you did *not* register the account, follow this link
to cancel the e-mail address confirmation:

This confirmation code will expire at 17:58, 19 March 2010.

If you forgot your password

If you forgot your password, click on "E-mail new password" button on the login page. A new temporary password will be automatically sent to you by email. The message looks like that:

Someone (probably you, from IP address requested a new
password for EVOWiki ( A temporary password for user
"Your Name" has been created and was set to "WScXE4T". If this was your
intent, you will need to log in and choose a new password now.
Your temporary password will expire in 7 days.

If someone else made this request, or if you have remembered your password,
and you no longer wish to change it, you may ignore this message and
continue using your old password.

You will be asked to create a new (easier to remember) password upon login in using the temporary one.

Changing your password

You can change your password at any time. To do that, click on the Special pages link in the toolbox panel (last box on the left) and click on change password link in the Users and rights section.
