unable to access freepascal wiki pages
« on: February 06, 2017, 08:27:48 am »
hello, I wanted to write about my new program to freepascal wiki gallery.
First I tried my name from forum - it worked  not. Than I tried to create account there, but I didn't understand the captcha there (English is not my native language and I read it careless too ). And now - seems to me,  the I can not reach freepascal wiki page at all. I tried another browser, VM, but it helped not.
Is it possible that my IP was banned?


Thank you for help.

You need to create an account here: http://wiki.freepascal.org/index.php?title=Special:UserLogin&type=signup&returnto=Main+Page

Usually it ask you a question similar to this: "What does Write('12' + '56') print?" The answer is 1256 not 68.  ;)

I don't think your IP is blocked, just to be sure try to connect through a proxy server. Just type in google "free online proxy".

Thank you for advice.
Through free on line proxy I registered now successfully and confirmed it. 

But now I am afraid to edit there
- first because of this ban
- second .. it is not clear how to add/insert new item to gallery. There is only EDIT available. All items are alphabetically sorted and there is no free place to add visible...

What paranoia? I don't see any paranoia.

1. Login to wiki
2. Open a new tab in your browser, then paste http://wiki.freepascal.org/YourPageNameHere
3. Press the create button, "YourPageNameHere" is created

Edit a topic, which is just right before or after your own. Simply add your topic before or after that in the editor window, preview and save it, if it is ok.

thank you very much Mischi!

I am not sure if I understand correctly.
I tried this like on picture attached , but it works not.

I was afraid that I can erase this "previous" topic, selected for edition. And finally nothing added if I did it like on this picture. Summary I was not edited...
