Create a New User Account

From Salish Sea Wiki

Anyone is welcome to become a wiki editor if they are willing to adhere to our Social Contract and work towards our Style Guide.

  1. Go to our Create New User Account Page, OR
  2. Ask someone on the moderator team for an e-mail invitation.

You will be required to provide 1) a user name, 2) a password, 3) an email. Once you signup you will be sent a request for email address confirmation. A moderator will get a new user notification. After you create an account you are expected to reach out to a moderator by email and introduce yourself, and why you want to be a wiki editor. This greatly reduces frivolous requests, spam and bots. Once your email is confirmed, and a moderator updates your permissions, you will be able to edit pages. Some pages remain locked to ensure the integrity of the platform.

Email the Moderator on Duty

The Salish Sea Restoration Platform does not support anonymity. Each user is expected to disclose their legal identity to the wiki, and to all readers. All edits and uploads are tracked as part of the wiki record, so that accountability to our social contract is maintained through transparency. We are very glad you are willing to join our community.

We discourage accounts owned by institutions. We hope you participate as a whole human within our community of practice, making independent choices to share knowledge for the benefit of the bioregion, even as you shift institutional affiliation. Please consider what email you use in establishing your account.
