I have an Ubuntu one and a launchpad account (I am logged in) but, when I go to here I don't see any way to edit the page.

The thing I wanted to edit was replacing nm-tool with nmcli

    FYI: You can seek help for like issues on IRC in #ubuntu-doc & like rooms (and you can access IRC using a browser though webchat links aren't shown for team rooms on wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList but I just tested it and it works in #ubuntu-doc); of course you'll need to be patient for replies on small team rooms such as that one, but if you have issues with how I edited the page etc, IRC is where I can be found; or you find other pages needing correction & don't have privileges

    Does this answer your question? How to give feedback to an immutable page at wiki.ubuntu.com

You [generally] need to be a member of this group to edit wiki pages - https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wiki-editors. FYI: I used the word generally as being a member of certain groups/teams automatically gives you rights/privileges of other teams.

You can seek help for like issues on IRC in #ubuntu-doc & like rooms (and you can access IRC using a browser though webchat links aren't shown for team rooms on https://wiki.ubuntu.com/IRC/ChannelList but I just tested it and it works in #ubuntu-doc); of course you'll need to be patient for replies on small team rooms such as that one.

I've made a number of changes on the actual wiki because I've seen questions on this site (plus others too, inc. ML & other forms of media) as I have access (refer back to the comments on this thread currently for an example), and I'll not be alone.

FYI: I suspect IRC is still such as useful tool as a number of oldies can be found there, but you'll also find a lot of Ubuntu members, Canonical employees leave IRC clients/bouncers running so we can scan when we have the time.

    Answer made as per suggestion by @Oli ^ based primarily on my comments (with redactions for details I was intended to be used only by OP, plus expansion too mainly on IRC)

  • The most common group that grants edit rights to the wiki besides ubuntu-wiki-editors is ubuntu-members.
