You know...you could set both passwords to the same thing, just to make is seamless. That's what mine are.

They are supposed to be synchronized. In fact, I have never had an issue with them ever being different and have always been able to log in to the website, wiki, and forums using the same credentials which have never changed. The main website is the only place it should be changed because then it is supposed to sync changes to other systems. IMO, this page should be deleted so people don't use it thinking they are changing it for all systems.

My guess is that you are not located in the USA, are using the world server to edit https://world.waze.com/editor/ , and using the US portal to access the forum http://www.waze.com/forum/ . Different servers, different passwords.

Nope, accounts are shared between the ROTW & NA Infrastructure - only Israel had separate accounts (but Waze is currently merging Israel into the world infrastructures).

Did you at any time change your password from either the website Dashboard, or the forum User Control Panel? (I'm trying to figure out where the break might have happened.)
