Some of the wiki's content is accessible only to Members of the CRG and PCSAR, Staff, and Trusted Guests. These are pages and files with names beginning with "Members:".

To access these pages, you must log in to the wiki. Click on the "Log in" link at the upper right corner of any page.

You will be taken to the login screen:

Be sure to read the portion that says "Pincher SAR and CRG Members". Many people have accidentally skipped this part.

Do not click on "Create an account." As a member you already have an account! Any additional account you create will not be able to access the member-only content.

(A) Enter your name as

John Smith

It has to be the spelling as you gave on your membership record. (click here for list). The first name and last name are capitalized, and there's a space between the names.

The following formats are wrong and won't work for you:

jsmith johnsmith john.smith  JohnSmith  John.Smith JOHNSMITH (all wrong)

If you have not logged in before, fill in your username and click on the "E-mail password" button. (B)

You should see:

Your name will be listed. If you don't see this, you've entered the wrong user name. Check the list.

If your name is not on the list, it means the wiki doesn't know you're a member. Brand new members will have to wait until the membership database is "processed", which if everyone is doing their job should happen once a month. Contact the Administrator if there are problems.

A temporary password will be sent in about 5 minutes to the e-mail address you gave on your personnel record when you joined Pincher SAR.

If you don't get the email, check your spam folder. If it's not there, ask the Administrator which email address is listed in your personnel record.

The email should be from and read like

Someone (probably you, from IP address XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX) requested that we send you a new password for PCSAR ( The password for user "Brett Wuth" is now "XXXXXX". You should log in and change your password now.

If someone else made this request or if you have remembered your password and you no longer wish to change it, you may ignore this message and continue using your old password.

Once you have the password, you can return to the log in page to log in. You'll be prompted to change your temporary password to a permanent one.
