Does anyone have credentials to edit? Seems they blocked new registrations.

I wanted to correct the statement on this page--"Lenovo's site is incorrect in showing that the Plus models have audio connectors on the Dock, these are not present in the dual-DVI models". This video shows they're definitely present, albeit on the right side.

IIRC, there are instructions on how to register manually on one of the pages. I seem to remember that you have to request an account via e-mail.

I tried emailing at register at thinkwiki.org a month ago, but never got a reply on how to get an account to edit the wiki. Then they had an issue with the website http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/ThinkWiki:Wiki_problems and now that I tried emailing them again, my email is not reaching them at all (I got a Failure Notice back).

Anyone from thinkwiki reading the forums to inform regarding new wiki users registrations?

Allow me to bump this topic in case someone takes notice.

Apparently, there are new users registering on the wiki; are they spam robots or real users, and whatever is true, how do they do it, since there is no registration form :?:

No new registrations in over a year. I'm pretty sure those are manual registrations.

I can understand why they turned of the registration. The Spam-problem is just too bad. Also, we turned the registration in our German ThinkPad wiki off after a massive Spam attack. We tried a captcha, but the Spam-bots had find ways to register.

I'm surprised they haven't approached some of the users here with invites. There are a few ( :) ) others here more qualified, but even I would chip in a bit. I've seen some discrepancies or ommissions there in a few articles that I would have corrected already.

I've had an account there since 2008, but have rarely used it. :oops:

You should know by now that misinformation is my one and only goal in life! :wink:
Where else but here would I find such a captive audience?
