Wiki- Login error: You have not specified a valid user name.

Postby NYdad » Tue Jun 05, 2012 12:38 pm

OK - so I found out that I am getting the error "Login error: You have not specified a valid user name." while trying to login to Wiki because it does not recognize the "_" character in my user name. Waze recognizes the character for the user name but Wiki does not. I read another post stating that an editor had a lot of trouble getting his user name changed (he was changing his user name to be able to access Wiki). What are my options if I want to log into Wiki? With the options, what are the downfalls?

Wiki Login issues

Postby Somna » Tue Jan 24, 2012 8:50 pm

you will need to log in a second time if you want to edit a Waze wiki. Look for the second "log in" directly under the main Waze "login" link in the upper right corner of the webpage. Use your standard user and password for the 2nd log in.


My password will not work for the wiki login page. I get the error:

Login error: Incorrect password entered. Please try again.


Using a bad username gives a username error, so I know it's a problem with the password.

I don't know if it's related, but I noticed that some of the wiki help links pointed to http://www.mediawiki.org. I tried logging in there to see if you use their account management because they have a reset password option. I also get errors that indicate the username is good, but the password is bad. When I tried the password reset option I received the error:

The username $1 is not registered on this wiki, but it does exist in the unified login system.


I tried to create an account on their site, but got a similar error (don't have the exact error and am too lazy to try and create the account again.)

I took the plunge and tried changing my username on the dashboard from 'N_Ydad' to 'NYdad'. It took about 90 secs to process but the username successfully changed and didnt affect my points or ranking. Ive now been throught 2 nitely updates and everything is working perfectly AND i can now log into Wiki.

Last night I had this issue on Chrome and Win7. Clearing my cache seemed to fix it.

I notice a similar issue from my work computer/network that has not appeared on my home computer/network.

At work I have Firefox and various proxy servers operating. When I tried logging in from IE at work, things were better, but still not 100%.

What browsers are you using and can you try the others to see what they say?

Can't login.

I get this error message:
Code: Select all
Login error: Incorrect password entered. Please try again.


Started today, about 1300 EET.

EDIT: And yes, I know my password. :)

mediawiki auto-capitalizes the first letter of all usernames. It's annoying.

I am running into a related issue. From FF 12 I have no problem. From Chrome 19.0 it works sometimes. From IE 7 (rarely use it) I get the "Login error:You have not specified a valid user name."

In all three cases I use the same login credentials.

I have no problem logged in through both FF and Chrome at the same time right now, but IE is still refusing to let me log into the Wiki. Since I don't use it I personally don't care.
