I would like to contribute some train symbols to the Wiki but when I try to log in it says that I'm not a "member of the required phpBB group". How do I get priviliges to edit the wiki?

I have that fixed for your account now. You can use the same login ID and password for the wiki as you use to log into the message board.

Hi, I am having the same issue as the other two users here, when I try to log in on the wiki it says "required to be in phpBB group", which I presume I am not, or something along the lines of that. Could you fix this?
Thanks.

Wiki is not allowing me to add new users to it currently, so for the moment, only a handful of existing members are able to edit it. I do hope to get it working for all at some point, but have not been able to make progress on this.

I definitely need to move this up the list of things to get done....fix the wiki. There isn't anyone out there in railfan land that has any kind of SQL database experience, is there?

Might finally have some progress on the wiki. I was able to add two individual users, AARR and Talk, with access to the wiki. PMed each of you your passwords for the wiki, which will likely differ from your Message Board password. Give it a try and see if you can log in at http://railroadfan.com with your login info and see if you can edit the test Sandbox page: https://railroadfan.com/wiki/index.php/TEST_PAGE

if anyone else wants to help me test, please let me know and I can try a couple more accounts for now. We'll see how the accounts work, and if it runs ok, we'll open it up.
Message Board/Gallery uses one login, Wiki uses another set of username/passwords.
