Hey Guys,

First time that I logged in, It allowed me to edit only one page. My question:

1- Do you have to have OpenID to edit wiki page and if yes, what is my OPenID?

2- Can you create a new account with below info:
Name: DWM
email: dcwebmakers at gmail.com
password: m123ZZ55

Then, try to login on your end to see if it allows you to edit below  
wiki pages:

Once you test it and give me your confirmation, I reset password.
