Wiki registration might be broken

I'm trying to create an account for the arch wiki, I'm thinking I'm entering the output wrong, except it's copied directly from the terminal, but than I thought my username had to be lowercase so tried that then used my standard 28 character password and the page just refreshes and just removes my password.

When I registered for the forums it was pretty much the same question, to answer that I had to do this.

 date -u +%W$(uname) 

Which outputs

 23Linux 

than I just had to put this in.

 echo '23Linux'|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g' 

which outputs a scramble of numbers and letters, I got 31b5(first 4) and the last 4 were 96ea.

The wiki registration might be broken.

I even just copied it directly, did get a different output, but was the exact same length and was also a scramble of letters and numbers. Both started with a 3.

Re: Wiki registration might be broken

I'll chime in.

What is the output of "date -u +%W`uname`|sha256sum|sed 's/\W//g'"?"
which is
6791d931cfb49be437a8c7dc79aec131335**********************************

doesn not get accepted. PW and Username everything is correct. I don't get any output like "invalid username/password". It just reloadds
with my password reset to blank.

I tried that command. You are getting the wrong output. As what chamber wrote, the hash begins with 3a99652d and not 6791d931.
