Why Do We Require an SCA Name?

This wiki has a very open policy of who may edit the site, but we require that new users request the right to edit, and provide their SCA name. This helps avoid "spammers" from creating new accounts with freedom to edit. Also, users should feel more responsible and courteous, since their posts are never annonymous.

Any user is free to edit "Talk pages" attached to every article. (click on "discussion" at the top of any page to enter its talk page). Talk pages can be used to suggest changes to articles or to provide commentary on articles.
