Partially protected pages[edit]

Some organizers and co-facilitators can edit partially protected pages such as these:

"Protected editors" is short for editors with limited use of the protected page editing user right. These editors are given the right to edit partially protected pages.

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

If there is a particular protected page you want to edit, ask Timeshifter or another admin about opening up that page to partial protection so that you can edit it.

Fully protected pages[edit]

Fully protected pages can only be edited by admins.

  • Special:ProtectedPages - list of all protected pages. Use "restriction level" dropdown menu to choose between fully and partially protected pages.

Ask for the right on Timeshifter's talk page or other admin's talk pages. Register a user name first.

Registering a user name[edit]

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.

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.

Anybody can edit city pages[edit]

Individual city pages can be edited by anyone without logging in, and without having a user name.

Mistakes are easy to fix, and everybody makes them.

Sandboxes to practice editing[edit]

Anyone can practice in this this sandbox without logging in.

Any registered editor can practice editing on their user pages if they are logged in. Editors can create additional user pages.

If you have protected editor status you can practice here too:
