Many actions in a MoinMoin wiki depend on your rights as a user. Some things like subscribing to page can only be done if you are a registered user logged into the wiki.
Here are the steps to become a user that is recognized by the wiki:
Go to UserPreferences and at least fill out Name, Password, Password repeat and Email.
It is best to choose a WikiName (like FirstnameLastname) as username to get your changes and signatures link back to your WikiHomepage. Your email is needed for you to be able to get notifications on page changes and to recover lost login data.
If you click on Create Profile, a user profile will be created for you.
After you created an account you are NOT logged in. You have to go to Login (often on top of page, but the exact naming and location depends on the theme).
After you have logged in you can create your own homepage by clicking on your user name - or you can be added to a WikiGroup to be able to access some pages that are hidden from the public. Please ask the administrator for these pages to add your name to the user list of this group.
