Registration is required to contribute to the BS01 Wiki.

Registration is optional

Everyone is welcome to contribute to the BS01 Wiki. Unlike Wikipedia, however, you must have a registered username in order to contribute.

There are two main reasons people are encouraged to register:

General benefits

The free account gives you many benefits, including more editing options and user preferences. One handy feature is the watchlist, which makes it easier for you to track changes to pages you are interested in.

An unregistered user is identified by his or her machine's IP address, which is used as his public identifier when he makes contributions (and signs comments on talk pages). Your computer's IP address can sometimes be used to find information about you, so registering increases your privacy by hiding it. Also, because IP addresses are often non-permanently allocated by DHCP or PPP, unregistered users sometimes find it more difficult to gain respect and recognition from other editors through building a good track record. It can also be more difficult to carry on conversations with such non-registered users since they lack a unique talk page.

Finally, only registered users are allowed to become administrators (also known as sysops). If you register, do not forget your password or your user name.

How to register
