Setting up a user account
TrainzOnline, unlike many wiki projects is blessed by having a protected shield—users must have registered with Planet Auran and the Serial Number of a valid Trainz version before they can edit here. This protects the site from vandalism. It also gives automatic editing privileges to registered users, meaning the only thing you need do as an contributor, is start a user page with a little biography information, and start making necessary fixes.
