User Migration

On September 23, 2017 all users were logged out and their passwords expired. In order to continue using OpenWetWare, you must:

  1. Log into your account using your old password
    • If you forgot your old password, use the password reset button
    • Check your spam folder! If you find the confirmation email there, please mark it as "not spam".
    • If your old email doesn't work anymore, contact us
    • If your account was never used (no edits or uploads) and more than 3 years old (created before September 1, 2014), it was deleted and you'll need to make a new one
  2. Set a new password
  3. Confirm your email address
    • On your preferences page, go to User profile -> Email options -> Email Confirmation
    • Check your spam folder! If you find the confirmation email there, please mark it as "not spam".

Disabled Features

The following features are no longer supported:

  • de-wikified pages: these subdomains now redirect to their source pages
  • private wikis: ask us for a database dump if you need it
  • raw HTML: this is a huge security problem and we will not re-enable it. Most HTML was used for formatting only, and can be replaced by wiki markup. If you need HTML for something special, you can ask an admin to create a template for you.
  • Many old plugins and parser hooks - if you find anything broken and want it fixed, please let us know!
