A user account is required in order to edit this wiki, but we've had to disable public user registrations due to spam.

To request an account, ask an autoconfirmed user on IRC (such as one of these permanent autoconfirmed members) or send an e-mail to admin@wiki.whatwg.org with your desired username and an explanation of the first edit you'd like to make. (Do not use this e-mail address for any other inquiries, as they will be ignored or politely declined.)

With regards to spam-bots

I would recommend enabling captchas during the registration process to stem the flood of nonsense accounts that are spamming the wiki. This can be done with the ConfirmEdit extension. — Edward Z. Yang(Talk) 19:39, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

it's not clear to me that the spammers aren't humans - hixie

Do not relegate discussion to IRC

The summary of your edit at FAQ is inappropriate. IRC discussion should not be required for editing. MediaWiki has better mechanisms for that.

While I am at that, thanks for adding at least some text that makes sense for Microsoft Outlook users. --Yecril71pl 08:51, 15 November 2008 (UTC)


Hi, I don't know if it is a feature request,but i read on wikipedia that rel="nofollow" is actual in use. will this become a standard?/is there a discussion about this? should we make a wiki page? --Mabdul 11:26, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

it's already in the spec - hixie


Should we "port" some articles for explaining the fundamental terms (like svg, etc.) ? --Mabdul 11:43, 1 December 2008 (UTC)

no, just point to wikipedia - hixie

You have removed important information

This edit of yours is infortunate; the offending message text you removed contained unresolved pronouns. Please reformulate the replacement text to correspond more closely to the original problem. --Yecril71pl 22:39, 15 February 2009 (UTC)
