All contributors have the power to create new contributor accounts.

  1. Log in with your user account.
  2. Got to the login page Special:UserLogin
  3. Use the link labeled Create an account, or click this link here
  4. Fill out the account information:
    • Username
    • Password - leave blank
      • A randomly generated password is sent to the user's email address
    • E-mail
    • Real name
  5. Uncheck "Remember my login on this computer".
  6. Click "by e-mail" to send the new account information directly to the user.

If your browser offers to save the password for this new user, choose no or "Not now".
