(!) It is best to choose a WikiName (like FirstnameLastname) as username to get your changes and signatures link back to your WikiHomepage. Your email is needed for you to be able to get notifications on page changes and to recover lost login data.

If you click on Create Profile, a user profile will be created for you and you will be logged in immediately.

(!) There's another step you need to follow before you can edit pages: send e-mail to <wiki-admin AT vestasys DOT org>, ideally from an e-mail address that is already subscribed to the vesta-users mailing list, and ask to be added to AllowedToWriteGroup.
