New User Registration.

If you argue that, the registration procedure was made so to prevent spammers. I will just have to say, think of how many new contributors have been discouraged by doing so.

The reason of the of login problems is that the bridge between the forum and the wiki is causing it's own problems. Some of them make it hard or impossible to do anything on the wiki so it not just 'get rid of the barriers'
The best way is to contact Ran, our forum webmaster. He can open the bridge for a short suitable time (before it crashes again).

p.s. I agree with you on the new contributors been discouraged part, it's really shame.

But we have now a lot more users that are active so vandalism may be less damaging.
I don't know what Ran thinks but maybe we should give it a try.

The forum approval, on the other hand, have everything to do with keeping spammers out. Manual validation is simply necessary today for most forums.

Is there a way to know when it's open or closed ? Or a time of the day when it's more often open than closed ?
And could you, please, put an explanation of the problem in the registration guide... because right now, it looks just like if we have to wait for account confirmation or something.
Anyway, it was only to correct some details on the featured quotes page (Twice the same quote : 6th and 83rd, 13th without author, 85th with some case problem, and some other typos)
