Edit: This decision has been reversed due to abuse. Manually asking for an account via the Discord server will still be required until further notice.
After a brief trial of the new approval process, the Batocera wiki account creation has been opened to the general public. Now, anyone with a valid e-mail can make a wiki account and start editing away.
However, edits made by new users will not be visible to the public. They must be approved by an approver first, the group of approvers will increase over time as more users create new accounts.
If you’re rearing up to make an account yourself, be sure to check the documentation contribution pages, in particular the good wiki editing practices page to make sure that your edits can be approved right away!
Happy retro gaming, everyone!
