Use the "logout" at the top-right of the Waze website. Then try this URL: https://www.waze.com/signin/?page=https ... /index.php

Hrm. Well, last resort is to clear all Waze.com cookies empty your browser cache and try that link again. (I always wait to suggest the full meal deal...)


iOS and Tapatalk have conspired to screw up this post.

It is linked, but it's a little different... For my username "AndyPoms" on Waze, I have to login to the Wiki as "Andypoms" - note the lowercase 'p'... I think the underscore in your username is causing the issue, so instead of "james_8970" try "james 8970" (with the space instead of the underscore).

Try looking up the username guidelines for something like wikipedia or the wiki software, it may give you some insight in what's wrong. I doubt that Waze Support will be able to help you with this one.

Where did you get that information? That does not match what is posted HERE in the forum by the Waze staff.

I got this back from Waze this morning, so yes, it appears support can't change usernames right now.

This is a temporary situation.
Support will be very soon able to update user names again and I hope that soon enough this option will be enabled in the dashboard too.


Thanks,

I ran into a similar bug only in my case it automatically turned the "B" in my username lower case so I'm "Arlenbystander" in wiki and "ArlenBystander" everywhere else. The only problem I see is with my user wiki page. I guess I can create a redirect page from one to the other if it becomes an issue.

Is the database for the wiki linked to Waze? This is my assumption, but I have been unable to login to the wiki since registering over a year ago. Is there a separate database that I have to register for that I'm unable to find?

Odd. That's not working, I've tried capitalizing my first name as well. Hmmm. The problem is likely my underscore, but I have no idea what it might be replaced with. Time to contact support I guess.
