    I'll be looking at this in more detail this weekend. I should have an update in the next couple of days.

    If you have trouble logging in, I will delete your wiki accounts so you'll be able to log back in. Once you can log in, please don't do any additional experimentation from other computers till I get back to you here. That way the PET updates should be able to limp along over the weekend.

    I have already re-deleted the accounts for Outlaw, pbharris, Compunuts, and Ashcrow.

    I think I found the problem.
    • Members > 100 posts get avatar privileges
    • This is done by transferring such users into a new primary user group "avatars", with registered user privileges, plus avatar upload privileges
    • The Wiki authentication script only likes the "registered" user group as the primary group.
    • So logins were working for people with under 100 posts (like the test user account)
    • The wiki was created before avatars were introduced, so everyone at that time who logged in was part of the primary "registered" user group.
    • I have modified the promotion of members to be assigned to the "avatars" group as a secondary, not primary group. I think users with > 100 posts who could successfully log in were relying on cached cookies from before the avatar add-on.
    • Wiki password recovery really doesn't work. The Wiki to vBulletin authentication plugin always checks the vbulletin DB for login credentials. I have removed the wiki password recovery button from the login page.
    • LoveChild was correct. Instructions on how to log in are not easily located. I have added instructions to the Wiki login page that should make it clear.
    Please let me know if this now works for you.
