You need to have at least a post count of 2 to be able to login to the wiki. This was decided a long time ago as a simple bulk signup prevention. Because you can't login to the wiki without the CG account, and the average spammer doesn't last long enough to get to the wiki.

But I have a post count of 16+ and it says
Login error
You have not specified a valid user name.
Sorry to be annoying. I'm sure it'll be something really simple that I'm doing wrong.

Out of curiosity, whatever did happen to the old wiki pages. Also, can you not upload pictures to the wiki page anymore?

its in a state of disrepair, and none of us mods have access to the inner workings. so in short... no idea.

This is always the case. It reduces the ability of spammers to create accounts.

I should have my webcomic, "Deep Blue", up soon. I've posted the first few pages, and am in the process of tweaking the page HTML.

I'm trying to create a wiki entry for my comic so that it will show up in searches, but when I try to go to the "wiki data" link in my comic's sysadmin page, I get a
Catchable fatal error: Method User::__toString() must return a string value in /home/mediawiki/includes/Block.php on line 1069
error. Any ideas or workarounds? :(

You're probably better off trying to create a page at http://cgwiki.comicgenesis.com .

I'm having the exact same problem gjbivin is having and your answer doesn't help. I can't log on to http://cgwiki.comicgenesis.com because he has a catchable fatal error or I would create a page. Can't create page if it won't let us log on to it.
