I would suggest contacting Waze Support. They should be able to advise on what to do to resolve this issue.

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

I had the same problem this morning when I tried to log in from the Wiki Page. I finally found where someone posted to log in only at www.waze.com and then it worked correctly. The wiki link kept telling me my user name was not registered, or something similar.

Usually wiki says i'm Argus-cronos but i can login with argus-cronos or both. Never had any problems with the wiki.

I ran into a problem with my username in the Wiki too. It choked on the 2nd capital letter...

So here I'm "AndyPoms", on the Wiki I'm "Andypoms".

I think the core issue is how Waze is case sensitive to usernames, where most websites either have a case insensitive username but have a display name that can be formatted as one likes or it's case sensitive for display only, but not login.

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