Can I have edit access to this Wiki?
My login id is DoraRajappan. I created it today. I am not sure the id expires after sometime. The id that I created before is not accessible and I had to create new id.
 
Thanks & Regards,
Dora Rajappan.

The problem was user error.

1) I put the FirstLast name in as "First Last" with a space
2) I put a comment after the name, effectively making the name different.

Putting the correct login id, and only the login id, on the line works fine :-)
