Hello there,

Given the discussion in this thread 
https://forum.dlang.org/post/ixtarkqkifckeygknoot forum.dlang.org 
I believe that the example from the wiki page "D for Win32" 
(https://wiki.dlang.org/D_for_Win32) should be cleaned up and the 
content should be updated.

I created a wiki user to do so, but it seems that I don't have 
permissions to edit. Who should I contact to get that page 
improved?

Something tickling the back of my brain says you have to make your username start with a capital letter. Not sure if that's anything, it's been years since I set up an account there, maybe there are more controls in place now. -Steve

I cannot say if you're kidding or not :) Why would the letter case have any influence on permissions?! Anyway, my username has a capital letter as far as I can tell https://wiki.dlang.org/User:Dgellow!

I agree it makes no sense! But I remember it having to be that way. Either it wouldn't let me make an account unless it had a capital letter, or I did make an account and the thing wouldn't work properly. In any case, must have been about 7-8 years ago, so I don't know if whatever was the problem has been fixed.

Then I guess this is not the problem ;) -Steve

According to https://wiki.dlang.org/?title=D_for_Win32&action=info, all users are allowed to edit that page. If I log in with my user, the Edit tab works for me, using Chrome. I haven't tried saving. You're saying "it seems", giving me the impression that you're not sure. What exactly does not work as expected, and when? -- Bastiaan.

Thanks for the reply. I just tried again and this time noticed that I have to confirm my email address (I initially gave a dummy one) to be able to edit a page, so that was the issue.

That's just a bad translation from my native language ;)
