Hi all,

I'm the new Election Administrator for the PSF. Last night I was attempting
to edit the wiki page with the list of Board Candidates for 2015. When I
visit the page, the left side-bar indicates that I'm not logged in (even
though, I am if I visit a different portion of the PSF wiki) and that the
page is immutable. Attempting to log into the wiki with my existing
credentials fails. Thomas indicated that I need to be part of the Editors
Group. Could you please add the username "IanCordasco" to that group?

Thank you,
