I imagine that one of the administrators must have introduced a more 
restrictive regime whereby a specific "password" must be given to pass the 
test. Unfortunately, I don't know who it would be that might be giving out 
this password, and I'm not an administrator, either.


P.S. Such a regime has become the accepted way of providing access to Moin 
wikis in recent years. Although it is fairly primitive, it does seem to 
achieve what might be done in a more sophisticated way by establishing trust 
relationships between existing account holders and people who appear to be 
trustworthy members of the community.
