    So I am kind of out of the loop on this; is there any reason why registration for the tweleve forums have been disabled? I searched around and couldn't find anything about it, besides the thread about disabling posting in the maranatha forums.

    The reason for asking is that I have a friend who's interested in joining us, of course. He participated in the MIT mystery hunt offsite, and he was also one of my math friends who I was working on the SUMS hunt with last year, so he's definitely interested in doing MUMS, but registration for the forums is disabled.

    If he can't make an account and post here before the hunt starts, Molnar, do you think you could make an account for him on the wiki? He says that his account name can be "patrickx".

    The Tweleve Pack is registered
    The team has 7 registered members so far, so there is room for 3 more that can be added at any time.
    To cover as many time zones as possible I will send the password to Ingrid, sluggy, molnar and stvwz for now. If we think we need more guessers the login information can always be shared with more people.

    Thanks Gabi, You're Awesome!

    Just as a reminder to anyone new to the wiki. When Molnar gives you your login credentials and passwords: PLEASE try them out BEFORE the first puzzle is released. Every year we have Molnar troubleshooting people trying to get into the chat room that first hour, instead of having a complete puzzle solving unit from the first minute.

    If possible, everyone needs to log into the wiki and chat room a half hour before the first puzzle is released so this won't happen to Molnar again.

    Thanks in advance!

    Ok, I think I have all new accounts set up. Welcome to new members! Check your PMs.

    Thanks to gabi for registering the team, thanks to pianoman for having my back, and thanks to cthree for graciously setting up a private forum for us.

    On to some logistical things. Much of the action usually takes place on the wiki, but I know for some of you the forums are more accessible. So I am going to ask for one or two volunteers to be forum-wiki liaisons. Your job would be to try to keep both media synced as to what puzzles have been solved or what potential solutions exist (or whatever else you think might be useful in this regard). I'm not expecting real-time syncing, just something more organized than we've had in the past so that everyone can stay in the loop. Let me know what you think.

    Hello, I am Patrick, the friend Anderson was talking about. I am glad registration worked , thanks you for enabling it.

    I am interested in participating in MUMS too, and I believe I need an account for the wiki/chat?

    Thanks for allowing me to help in MUMS and I really look forward to it.

    forum-wiki liaisons
    Well, I know I try to to that on an informal basis when we use the forum, so I'm sure the OCD will take over and I will once again attempt to keep the forum up to date.

    Hi Patrick, welcome. I had nothing to do with your Tweleve registration, but glad you got things worked out.

    I have already made you an account on the wiki and sent the info to Anderson earlier today. I just resent it as a PM to you now. Let me know if you have any questions.
