I am unable to create a wiki account (boinc.berkeley.edu/wiki): there is just a log in page, no account creation option. This needs to be fixed, because it makes crowdsourcing absolutely impossible.

Since there's spammers all over the place, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if this wiki is hammered shut. It may be that you'll have to request that the developers make your account, it's the same for the Alpha accounts.

I'll ask around.

Account creation on the Wiki is now enabled.
Until the spammers return...

Spammers and wreckers have returned, persons unknown are deleting whole parts of the Wiki. Expect their accounts to be blocked, while the Wiki will be closed again. People just need to learn to leave other people's hard work alone, even on the internet.
