pauamma: Cartooney crab holding drink (Default)

So I have a DW wiki account named Pauamma (userid 14), which I log into using OpenID, and for which I'd like to set the email address to pauamma@dreamwidth.org, so I can get emailed when pages on my watchlist change. However:

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ChangeEmail&returnto=Special%3APreferences wants me to enter my current password, which I don't know (assuming I even have one) because OpenID.

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:ChangePassword&returnto=Special%3APreferences (which I tried next) also wants to know my current password.

- http://wiki.dreamwidth.net/wiki/index.php?title=Special:PasswordReset&returnto=Special%3APreferences doesn't, but complains that I don't have an email address set.

Any way out of that chicken-and-egg problem?

We had a category that was creating a glitch in the Mediawiki software: "Â Third_party_programs"

I had to go into the database to try and fix it; the category is now gone and I don't forsee any problems from that, but in case I did cause some, please let me know.
