Quite bizarre indeed. I see that the "create an account" link is missing on the wiki page. When I tried a direct link to the create account (by entering the path used on any mediawiki) I got the answer:
You do not have permission to create this user account, for the following reason: The action you have requested is limited to users in the group: Administrators.
The above message, might also be the reason why some of the info on the wiki is outdated. According to this forum post, the login credentials should be the ones used on e107.org. For me it didn't work though. -)
I believe the user accounts of e107.org are linked to the wiki. You can login to the wiki with the same login details as on e107.org. I'm not sure if any user can just edit it, it might require more permissions but steved should be able to answer that as Dave said.
You should indeed be able to log in to the wiki with your e107.org credentials - except that Mediawiki does strange things with upper and lower case in user names which sometimes confuses things. Also, at one point it expected your display name rather than your login name (from the days when they could be different....), which maybe explains why MysterF couldn't log in.
The 'Access Forbidden' message sounds as if its triggered by server-level security measures. Can you try some small updates, and see if they're accepted? Hopefully you can home in on what's bothering the security measures, and we can update the rules.
Tested some more, and the ' Access Denied' only appears if you try to edit and save the whole page.
If you look on the far right of 'How is TinyMCE configured? ' (or any other subsection), you'll see the word 'Edit'. Click on that and you can edit just the relevant subsection (which is often simpler anyway). That worked for me.
Will try and pin down what's triggering the security block.

Nope, my display and login name it's same only the real name is set to Floryn. Regardless I tried with floryn and with lower characters on mysterf as well without success. Imo it's my 129 bit password that uses +^\` numbers and letters that confuses the wiki, not sure though.
Long as the OP issue is solved I'm happy, no need to further investigate this for me (I rather you look at why the blodie ampersand in news titles still messes RSS feeds ).
