Hello, I'm currently receiving this error from a log in attempt to the RadioReference Wiki:



Is this something I'm able to resolve myself?

I don't believe you can have the underscore character in a username.

Somewhere there should be the rules for this but I didn't look.

The other two threads about the underscore in user id's and wiki login.

Underscore Usernames
User's with a username that has an "_" (underscore) will not be able to login to the Wiki to edit articles. To fix this, please send a support request to support@radioreference.com to request a username change.

As described in the Wiki Help article, the Wiki does not allow underscores in user names. The RR Wiki user database is shared with the site user database, but the Wiki is the only application on the site that has the underscore problem. Once a site username is created, it becomes part of the Wiki user database, but underscores are not allowed. It's a bit of a Catch 22.
Your only option is to have your site user name changed.

This is a known issue - it's the underscore in your userid. Please contact Lindsay for resolution...Mike
