Unprotected pages. Like city pages[edit]

Fully protected pages can only be edited by admins.

Any editor can be given permission to edit partially protected pages. See:

Contact the talk pages of full admins to be given the right to edit partially protected pages.

Partially-protected page editors[edit]

Return to top.

Ask for the right on Timeshifter's talk page or other admin's talk pages. Login is not necessary to use the talk pages. You will need to register a user name eventually though, in order to edit protected pages.

Registering a user name[edit]

Return to top.

Share link: Register

Registering a user name is optional. City pages can be edited by anybody without logging in, and without a user name.

If you want a user name click any "Create account" link. Pick a user name and password. No other info is required. You can use an alias user name if desired. Your real name is not required at any point, although you are welcome to use it.

Using your real name is cautioned against when editing wikis. See Wikipedia:Realname and Wikipedia:Harassment. You might want to consider how editing a cannabis wiki with your real name might affect your job, family, relatives, and relations with your neighbors.

Your email address is optional, and is useful for password retrieval if you forget your password. In your preferences you can choose to let others contact you by email through a link on your user or talk page. Your email address is not revealed when other users contact you. You can use an alias email if you want to. Many people create secondary email accounts with pen names, alias names, etc.. This way they can reply to others' emails without revealing their real name.

After registration you will have a blank user page. Find your user page here: Special:Log/newusers. Your user page is created when you type anything in it, and save it. You can also find your user page with this search. Uncheck all (via the "none" button), and then check the box for "user". Enter your user name and then search.

Anyone can practice in this this sandbox without logging in.
