In the past I've been able to login the the Tcler's wiki just using my nickname and the login page does offer the choice to  login with a nickname and with a maintainers login.  But once I enter my nickname, successfully complete the captcha and press the "login using nickname" button it takes me to the maintainers login.  Is it busted  or is this a new policy? Do you have to sign up to be a maintainer?

Carl

I see no different behaviour - I can log in as usual, but I log in as a registered user.

You don't need to sign up to maintain content, you just have to provide a nickname.  Signing up just reserves the nickname and mostly allows you to avoid the captcha.

However there is a bug in the signup process, once you request a login for your nickname you can't use it until the login is approved.   There is a fix ready for deployment that will address this, but in the meantime I've approved your request.

Yes that is the problem, I signed up for a maintainer login after I could not get in. Thanks for letting me know.
