Don't have permission to upload

Post by merose »

When I try to upload files from the "Add work" page, I get an error: "Permission error: You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason: The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: emailconfirmed." I believe I confirmed my email when clicking on the link in the address confirmation email, but perhaps I did something out of order.

Some time ago we were literally overwhelmed by spammers, so the registration process is a little bit garbled due to spam countermeasures. It is possible the something went wrong.

Please login to the wiki, click on the "Preferences" label on the top-right side of the page, and check that you are a member of the group "emailconfirmed". If you aren't (as I expect), the same page provides a function to re-send the confirmation email to you. As the confirmation email contains a link that you should click in order to check that your email address is correct, some anti-spam systems consider the message as spam because most spam messages include links, too. So, please check your spam folder if you don't receive the confirmation email within some minutes.

When your email address is confirmed you obtain full user rights, which are required to submit editions as well as to perform some other actions.
