Account Creation

In order to prevent vandalism and bot spam, self-creation of accounts has been disabled.
You need to ask for an account creation, Wiki account that will be linked to your Bohemia Interactive account.

Do you need an account?

Ylands
For Ylands, see Ylands WIKI FAQ!

Before asking for an account, ask yourself:

Do you want to edit only a couple of pages where you noticed an error?
If so, it is better to ask someone to edit said page(s) on the Arma Discord in the Inline code channel.

Else, head towards Dwarden (or any available official Community Manager) and ask for a Wiki account on BI Forums or the Arma Discord!
